How to Use Scaffold Alloy Beam in Construction
Alloy beams are fixed by standard scaffolding couplers to scaffold tubes and poles in construction. Scaffold spigot pins are the connectors between two alloy beams. Between the scaffold spigot and alloy beams, scaffold hinged pins or quick wire lock pins join the two elements together.
Scaffold spigot pins for the alloy beams are steel and 450mm and 600mm in length. They are longer than normal couplings and connectors. The beam scaffolding spigot couplings are with 6 to 8 holes in different directions convenient using the hinged pins and spring pins.
Alloy Beams Size & Specifications
450mm Alloy Beams
450 alloy beam is a narrow type of alloy beam compared to 750mm X beams. They are used popularly in all scaffolding construction including civil scaffolding, commercial scaffolding, industrial scaffolding, etc. In construction, the 450mm alloy beams are used in ringlock scaffolding, cuplock scaffolding, kwikstage scaffolding.

750mm Alloy Beams
750 alloy beams are the wide type of scaffold alloy beam. To make it strong enough to take the heavy weight. they are with X braces between the top and bottom chords. Thus called scaffold aluminum X beams as well. 750mm X beams are used in heavy-duty construction, supporting, and roofing.
What Type of Aluminium is Used for Alloy Beams?
Alloy beams are made of high-grade 6082 aluminum material. This aluminum material is stronger than normal 6061 aluminum. The aluminum scaffold beam is 4.5mm thick. This type of aluminum makes the alloy beam safe and strong enough to take heavy loads in construction.
How strong are The Scaffold Alloy Beams?
- Test Standard: BS EN 1999-1-1
- Permissable moment: 20.2KNm
- Permissible shear: 11.6KN
