Scaffolding Basic Elements Explained

Buying scaffolding parts and components is not different from other investments and, requires that you always make informed decisions.  The first step towards doing this is getting to know a little more about scaffolding basic elements. However, there is no reason to worry about a thing because, we have explained all the basic elements and other scaffolding components that we offer herein.

There are several kinds of scaffolding basic elements that we offer including; cross braces, galvanized pipes, couplers/ clamps, scaffold frames, scaffold catwalks, boards/ planks. These components form the backbone of the structure since they play the major role in the stability of the scaffolds. However, it should be noted that the design and construction of every scaffold usually depends on the structural design of the house or building to be worked on.

You can always contact us for any of the following scaffolding basic elements;

Cross Braces

Cross braces can be used together with other braces like, façade braces to reinforce various parts of the scaffolding structure. They make the overall structure to remain rigid and avoid it from moving sideways when in use. In this way, they are also ideal in ensuring the safety of the structure.

Galvanized Pipes

We offer aluminum and steel galvanized pipes that you can always choose from. Aluminum tubes are lighter in weight and also sturdy to support scaffolds and, recommended for low-rise and less strenuous projects. For scaffolds that will be used in high-rise buildings and large scale projects, we always suggest steel pipes because of their ability to support heavier weights. Our experts can always assist you in choosing the best scaffold pipes for your project.

Clamps/ Couplers

Couplers are used in connecting various components and parts of the structure, and are designed in various shapes and sizes. For example, in order to link a standard to a transom, you will need to use a coupler. The variants of couplers and clamps that we offer are forged using steel to withstand huge workloads.

Standards, Ledgers and Transoms

These are also other key elements of scaffolding. A standard refers to a pipe connecting the weight of the structure to the ground. It matches the overall scaffolding length. Ledgers assume a horizontal path for additional support and distribution of the weight of the structure. Transoms are placed at right angles to support the standards by keeping them in place. Besides, transoms are also responsible for offering additional support to the boards.

We also offer a selection of scaffold boards/ planks, frames and catwalk that you can choose from depending on the size or material that you need. We understand that the lengths, widths and heights of scaffolding components vary based on the building that the structure will be used. Our components are available in a wide range of measurements, and can always be customized to your specifications.

Considering there are various types of scaffolding, determining the right elements means you have to know the particular height, width and length of the structure for your project. These are not calculations that anyone can easily just come up with. Instead of sweating over it, simply leave it to our experts. After discussing with us about the kind of project that you intend to undertake, we will advise you on the most appropriate scaffolding basic elements for a stable, safe and durable structure.
