Scaffold Handrail

Scaffold Handrail

The purpose of scaffolding is to provide a platform to enable builders to work on very high structures.

Scaffolding platforms should consist of undressed 2x10s that have been properly inspected and graded. The maximum allowable gap between planks is 1".

System scaffolding is also used in the Civil Engineering sector as support framework for concrete pouring and slab fixing.

Throughout the whole of Asia bamboo scaffolding is a common sight on many construction sites.

Scaffolding bars must always be supported on proprietary base plates to ensure the safety of the scaffolding when the scaffolding bars are used vertically.

Any safety feature that can be applied to a scaffolding plank will add to its value.

Think about selling your used scaffolding training when you are ready to buy scaffolding.

Access ladders should extend about 1 m above the working platform of independent scaffolding in order to provide a handhold for people getting on and off.
