The safe working load on platforms erected as shown is 3. If this is required, construct as shown above, using diagonal face bracing to inside and outside faces. The safe working load on platforms, erected as shown, is 1. However, they may be used in cantilever form as shown, in corners only, provided that the loads shown on pages 31 and 32 are not exceeded.

Horizontals supporting these Intermediate Transoms may be limiting. Uniformly distributed W1 4. Earlier brackets are deep and have different end detail. Omega Board Support 1 Board weight: Scaffold Boards on top and nailed down if gap between adjacent decks exceeds regulations. For Design and Loading Information see page Scaffold Board on top and nailed down if gap between adjacent decks exceeds regulations.

When required plan bracing can be put in under the platform level. L Equivalent deck loading Central Deflection 2 kN on 2.

The diameters shown in the table on page are those which just touch the inside face of the inside horizontal. Suitable additional clearance must be allowed. Guidance Notes When it is required to provide a run of Access Scaffold, which is curved in plan, such as to give access to the inside or outside of circular tanks, etc. It is not always possible to have inside horizontals, outside ledgers and transoms at the same level.

Some of the horizontals on the outside of the curve of the scaffold must be moved to a different level and in the commonest case of providing access around the outside of a structure then the horizontal is moved up by 1m to form a guardrail.

See page When providing access around the inside of a curve i. Curved scaffolds can be constructed by using a combination of rectangular and trapezium shaped bays Scaffold Type A in the following pages or from all trapezium shaped bays Scaffold Type B.

The circle is finally closed with adjustable ledgers or tubes and couplers if standard horizontals will not do. Rectangular bays are used as normal for a scaffold and over 1.

Intermediate transoms cannot be used in trapezium bays and therefore the length of these shown in the following tables has been limited to cater for the allowable span of a 38mm scaffold board. If thicker boards are used, greater lengths may be considered. The diameters, shown in the Tables on pageapply to scaffolds around the outside of circular structures.

For scaffolds on the inside of tanks, etc. During erection care must be taken to see that the trapezium shaped bays are erected keeping a true shape on plan, otherwise the desired diameters will not be achieved. So m e Ty pic al Lay o uts Dia. Diameters apply to external scaffolds. If ties are only connected to the inside horizontal or vertical, then plan braces should be put in at every tied level in the same bays as the face bracing.


Note the limitation shown on the tie pattern diagrams for the horizontal or vertical span of such arrangements. This may mean that additional ties have to be put in.

Scaffolds should not scaffplding more than two lifts above the ground or above the last tied level, except unloaded scaffolds under construction against the face of existing building when three lifts are permitted.

If bricklayers scaffolds are to have the working platform two lifts above the last tie, then ledger bracing should be used for the two lifts under the platform. This may be removed when further ties have been positioned. Face Bracing Face bracing is required over the full height for one bay in every four. Hop – Up Brackets The rules for hop – up brackets, are the same as for straight runs.

Special Cases Every effort should be made to comply with the rules for ties wherever possible.

scafflding For scaffolds to steel tanks, consideration should be given for anchorage to be welded on to the face of the tank. However, scaffoldinv it is not possible to secure the tie to the structure and the following special procedure should be adopted.

Adjustable bases can be used in the ends of the tubes to spread the load, and by adjusting them, firm contact can be made with the structure. Note that tie patterns Type C and Type D, are then particularly useful. Details mankal given for scaffoldinng only. Special deck boards and toe boards will not be supplied with the tower. They may be made up as shown. If exposed to high winds, stability checks must be made.

Additional items required for the 2m lift Tower are the 2. Plan dimensions of both Towers are 4. The rise of each staircase unit is 2. Exits can be cuplockk from the landing platforms by suitably rearranging the guardrails. Permissible heights, depending on loading and tie pattern, are shown on page Permissible heights depending on loading and tie pattern are shown on page The staircase units act as both plan braces and diagonal braces.

If any staircase unit has to be omitted this has to be replaced by additional plan and diagonal bracing. The maximum distance of a tie to the nearest node point must not exceed mm. The staircase tower must not extend more than 4.

Limited by Cuplok System. This is approximately equivalent to one man plus light tools, per metre of staircase height. The permissible tensile load on this connection is 12 kN.

Details are given for guidance only 2 If there is direct access to a xuplock scaffold then only two fixed toeboards will be needed.

Ledgers are used as handrails They may be made up from standard Working platforms and safety scaffold boards. See page for platforms must be fully boarded details.

To fix forkheads to jack use M8 x 60 bolt and nut. Bracing Coupler L Min. Rocking Forkhead 1 The Cuplok Rocking Forkhead replaces a normal forkhead where slabs with sloping soffits have to be constructed.


The design of the forkhead allows the primary timber beams to be sloped along their length and also to be sloped in the transverse direction, so that the secondary timber beams fully contact the top surface of the primary beams.

Thus soffit formwork which slopes in two directions relative to the grid of the supporting Cuplok structure, cupkock be constructed.

This is achieved by firstly erecting the forkheads to the approximate level required. Primary and secondary timbers for a small part of the formwork area are placed in position. The base of the forkhead is then sloped to give proper support to the timbers by rotating the small handles on the socket at the bottom of cuploock forkhead. Care should be taken to see that the support bar is in full line contact with the underside of the forkhead.

As it is very difficult to calculate exact setting levels for the forkheads, it will probably be necessary to re-level the support jacks, whilst checking the required levels at the form face. Due allowance should be made for the plywood thickness if this is not in place at the time.

Finally ciplock the setting of the support bar. This is particulary important when using Cuplok to support scaffoldinh Metriform System.

A spigotless verticals must always be used at the top so that a jack can be inserted. In this case ledger bracing is required across each row. Such towers will have to be ledger braced in both directions scaffoleing a plan brace may be necessary to keep the tower square. Again, care should be taken in the design of taller structures, paying particular attention to the overturning of the towers. Mamual may be from Cuplok Ledgers if the spacing is suitable, or otherwise with tube and fittings. If cantilever brackets are used, these must be loaded scsffolding and there must be sufficient weight on the main structure to ensure stability.

The gap between the side of the brace and the node point should not be greater than 50mm. This requires one complete brace from the top to the bottom lacing level, on each row mnaual standards, once in 7 bays, in each direction. Height adjustment has to be carried out before the bracing is put on.

See pages and for details. In general, jack bracing should be avoided wherever possible, by designing the structure so that only the smallest jack extensions are required at top and bottom. The extension of the jack at the top, and the bottom, should be balanced, to give equal load carrying capacity, as shown on Data Sheets onwards.

Where jack bracing is necessary, it should be made using the details shown in these diagrams. If the formwork is continuous and with rigid connections between members, then forkhead lacing should not be required.
