Scaffolding is an integral part of almost all construction projects and has been used ever since the first structures were built. Commonly needed to get access to structures at height during construction, scaffolding can serve many different purposes. Sometimes scaffolding is used to support workers and their tools, other times they’re needed to support significant loads from building materials, such as bricks, blocks, stucco, or cast-in-place concrete, which is known as ‘shoring’ instead of ‘scaffolding’.
Even though there are many different types of scaffolding, new variants come out fairly often. Some of the most popular types of scaffolding around the world include:
1. Wooden & Bamboo Scaffolding
2. Tube & Clip Scaffolding
3. Systems Scaffolding
(1) Cuplock Scaffolding
(2) Kwikstage Scaffolding
(3) Haki Scaffolding
(4) Staircase Tower Scaffolding
4. Frame & Brace Scaffolding
5. Suspended/Swinging Scaffolding
6. Mast Climbing Scaffolding
If you’re a scaffold designer in the UK or Australia, then Kwikstage will likely be your systems scaffolding of choice. From commercial to residential applications, Kwikstage is both easy to erect and relatively adaptable. With just five components required, it’s easy to assemble and disassemble. Non-slip platforms and double guard rails included with Kwikstage improve its safety and reliability. There are plenty of resources out there for assembling Kwikstage scaffolding, including those from Work Safe New Zealand and Staluform.
Kwikstage is a universally established prefabricated scaffolding system. Used for both access and shoring applications.It’s inherent simplicity is what makes Kwikstage a versatile, efficient and cost effective alternative to traditional tube and fittingscaffolds.
Kwikstage is a heavy duty modular system scaffold with wedge fixing for all access scaffold requirements. The wedge fixing of the ledgers and transoms gives a simple and fast mean of erecting acecess scaffolding without loose parts.
Features and Benefits
Quick and easy to erect. Ledgers and transoms are fixed to the vertical standards using captive wedge connections, eliminating the need for tranverse bracing.
No losse fittings. captive connector meas reduced losses and increased productivity compared to traditional tube and fitting scaffold
Adaptability. Kwikstage will allow the user to follow most building profiles by just using the basic components.
Its rigid four-way fixing gives a positive location without any movement, spigot and wedge fitting on the standard to give a guranteed vertical aligment.
Surface treatment could be paint, powder-coated and hot-dipped galvanize.
