A standard scaffold board is a maximum span of 1.5m, it is also 25mm wide and 38mm thick. Scaffold boards are made from sawn softwood however, in some systems, lightweight metal scaffold boards are used.

Braces are supportive elements, used to reinforce the fundamental scaffolding. Braces like additional couplers, facade braces and cross braces can be used in various combinations, to support the structure in multiple ways. For example, cross braces run diagonally between ledgers and attach securely to standards to increase the overall rigidity of the scaffolding working platform and structure.

Toe boards are usually placed between vertical standards. Toe boards come in wood, steel or aluminium and each toe board is used for different purposes. For example, steel toe boards are used to reduce fire hazards and they last longer. In addition, because of how steel toe boards are designed, there are no gaps or openings between the toe board and the deck.

Toe boards

Transoms come in different forms and function differently, depending on how they are placed on the ledger. Main transoms provide support for standards by holding them in place as well as support planks or boards. Intermediate transom are placed alongside mean transoms to give additional support to boards and planks on your working platform.


Running horizontally in between each standard are ledger, which offers weight distribution and support.


Tubes are typically made of steel or aluminium, although there are composite scaffolding made from fibril-wound tubes of glass fibre, in a nylon or polyester matrix. Because of the high cost of composite tubes, they are mostly used only when there is possibility of danger from overhead electric cables that cannot be shut off.


These are affordable climbing frames made up of two stilts, joined by steps or rungs, used for the purpose of ascending or climbing a building structure.


Standards are long pipes or tubes that connect the scaffold system, directly to the ground. Standards run all through the length of the scaffolding. The base of each standard is connected to a base plate, which helps distributes the weight each standard bears.


Alongside the basic structural elements of a scaffolding system, we also provide multiple scaffold ties, to secure the scaffolding to the adjoining building. As good practice, ties are attached every 4m on alternating lifts levels. However, depending on the kind of scaffolding, the tie types and patterns can vary. For example, trough ties are used to secure a scaffolding to a building via a building’s open window. Box ties help secure scaffolding attached to building’s external features like pillars.

According to work at height regulations, work platforms are platforms used as a place of work or as a means of access or egress from a place of work. Work platforms include suspended scaffolds, mobile platforms, cradle, gantries, gangways, trestles, stairways and so on. Because trestles are regarded as working platforms, they are also subjected to the requirements placed on scaffolding working platforms, by the current health and safety regulations.

What is risk assessment?

Risk assessment involves the careful examination of a site, to discover possible dangers and harm that can occur to workmen on a site, as a result of work related activities. Risk assessment is conducted to allow you put in place the necessary precautions to prevent harm from occurring. If you are contemplating having servicemen work at height, a risk assessment needs to be carried out in order to pinpoint hazards and the degree of risk present, because work at height regulations require that you follow the risk assessment approach with scaffolding working platforms.

It would depend on the roofer and the type of roofing work being done. For example, in some instances where ladders cannot be safely grounded because of the state of the ground, scaffolding is often needed. Scaffolding work platforms are required for roofing projects in most cases.

Why scaffolding is always used in place of a small crane?

The answer is simple, it is much easier and cheaper to get permission for scaffolding than for a crane. This is because scaffolding is usually erected within the boundary of the site and therefore doesn't require a licence from your local authority. However, when scaffolding obstructs a highway or footpaths, yours scaffolding company would have to obtain scaffolding permit for your local council before work can begin. Then you will get a licence and pay a fee per week. After the permit is issued, inspections once a month will be conducted by your local council to ensure that you stay within the terms of your scaffolding permit. It is easy for you to get scaffolding licence within a couple of days. Cranes will not fit inside the boundary of a building, especially in cities, which means they'll be on the road for a considerable amount of time. This is why scaffolding structures are the more popular choice.

How do I calculate safe working load (SWL) for scaffolding?

The safe working load of scaffolding is usually determined by the division of the minimum breakage strength (MBS) of a component by a safety factor assigned to use and type of equipment. Typically, safety factor is usually between 4 to 6, with an exception, when the failure of equipment could pose the risk life, then the safety factor will be 10.
