Scaffold clamps/ couplers are basic scaffolding elements mainly used in connecting the frames for setting up the structure. Couplers work by creating a straight line or angle to ensure that the other components of the scaffold are safely held in place for structural stability. Generally, these products come in standard 90-degree angles with centrally positioned swivels to give additional support to the scaffold.
However, there are varieties of clamps or couplers to choose from when building scaffolds. And, that is why our product portfolio comprises a selection of couplers for use in various kinds of scaffolding. Just like other scaffolding products that we offer, our clamps and couplers are designed to high standards of efficiency, reliability and durability. Our commitment is to deliver the best quality, customized and affordable couplers for every scaffolding need.
Types of Scaffold Clamps/ Couplers
There are several kinds of scaffold clamps/ couplers that you can acquire for scaffold erection or conducting repairs to an existing one. The following are the main types of scaffold clamps or couplers that you can get from us;
Right Angle Couplers
Also called double couplers or 90-degree couplers, right angle couplers are used in connecting pipes at right angles. In construction terms, right angle couplers join transoms to the standards. These types of couplers can be obtained in various dimensions including, 48 x 48, 43 x 43, 43 x 48, 48 x 60 among others, depending on your specifications.
These come in handy when creating custom angles, which means they can connect two tubes at just any angle that you wish. With proper positioning of the scaffold pipes, swivel couplers can be used in tightening the position where the two tubes join. However, their main application is in diagonal bracing, whereby cross braces are placed between vertically aligned pipes.
Known as single couplers by some, putlog couplers are mainly applied in connecting transoms to ledgers to enhance support for the scaffolding boards/ planks. These types of couplers are generally considered suitable for scaffolds that are used in light-duty activities since they cannot hold so much weight.
Among the three main types of couplers discussed above, it should be noted that only double couplers and swivel couplers are ideal for ‘load-bearing connections.’ Sleeve couplers or joint pins are used in developing end to end connections, linking two scaffolding tubes.
These are mainly designed for externally joining two scaffold pipes on both ends. However, there is a centrally located steel divider to ensure that each tube is equally inserted into another. They are important in areas where tension joints are required, therefore, can be effective for long bracing and ledger pipes.
The joint pins that we offer are manufactured with high quality materials to deliver better grip against the internal walls of the scaffolding pipes. Although they are not recommended for use in areas with possible tubular tensions, joint pins should be installed in compression joints.
