A cross brace is one of the scaffolding basic elements that must always be used when putting up the structure to enhance stability and support. Cross Brace comprises two parts of steel that create a cross sign when opened. It helps in determining the length of a particular scaffold or spaces between the scaffold frames. However, it should be noted that cross braces are available in various sizes to ensure that you can always get what suits the frames for your structure.

Unlike what some may think, cross braces are the determinants of the length of the entire scaffolding structure as well as spacing between the frames. Although the cross braces are usually longer than the structural length, spacing can either be 5, 6, 7, 8 or 10 inches long based on the sizes of the braces that you use.
Benefits of Using Cross Braces
Using cross braces in setting up scaffolding is very important and offers several benefits aimed at keeping the structure stable and also enhancing its lifespan. A cross brace plays an integral role in ensuring the rigidity of the scaffolding throughout the period of its use.
Cross bracing forms an X shape, which is firmly positioned to keep the scaffolding in place during movements as workers go on with their activities. This form of configuration enables the structure to withstand tension and compression forces that are experienced during use. Cross braces can be used in just any kind of scaffolding component, including, fabricated frames, couplers, tubes among others.
Cross bracing is ideal for developing better support for builders during construction of bridges, houses and other low, medium and high rise structures. Cross braces can be placed vertically or horizontally depending on the design of the scaffolding. Braces that are applied horizontally are mainly aimed at providing lateral stability to the structure. On the other hand, horizontal cross braces, are the most common in building scaffolds.
