Galvanised Scaffold Tubes

Galvanised scaffold tube is also called galvanized scaffolding pipe. The diameter of a scaffold tube is OD48.3mm.  While the thickness of galvanised scaffold tubes is 3.2mm or 4.0mm.

The longest galvanised scaffold tube is 21ft(6.4m). While you can have other scaffold tube lengths in 20 ft (6m), 16 ft, 13ft, 10 ft, 8 ft, 6 ft, 5 ft, etc.

Galvanized scaffold tubes are connected by scaffold couplers like right angle couplers, swivel coupler in construction. You can use tube scaffolding for all types of scaffolding. Include the following four main scaffold types: single scaffolding, free standard scaffolding, cantilever scaffolding, concrete support scaffold.

Galvanised Scaffold Tube Guide

What is Tube and Fitting Scaffolding

Tube and fitting scaffolding is a scaffold erected by scaffold tubes and scaffolding fittings. In the tube and fitting scaffolding, you can use steel scaffold tubes and aluminum scaffold tubes. For steel scaffold tubes, there are galvanised scaffold tubes, black scaffold tubes, painted, and coated scaffold tubes.

According to the scaffolding pipes diameter, there are OD42-OD89mm scaffold tubes.  Scaffold fitting sizes are matched with the scaffolding pipe diameters.

Tube and Fitting Scaffolding VS System Scaffolding

System scaffolding is a type of modular scaffold. In system scaffold, you can find prefabricated modular scaffolding parts. These system scaffold parts are connected to each other automatically. For system scaffold, you do not need to add extra scaffold fittings in the erection. They are very easy to install. You can find 6 major types of system scaffolds Include

  1. Ringlock Scaffolding
  2. Kwikstage Scaffolding
  3. Cuplock Scaffolding
  4. Quick Lock Scaffolding
  5. Frame Scaffolding
  6. Hi Load Shoring System

Tube and fitting scaffold is a traditional basic scaffolding system. It forms scaffold supports and frames for construction before the system scaffolding was invented. Tube and fitting scaffold uses scaffolding pipes for all sections of the scaffolding: standards, horizontals, braces, bracket, cantilever, etc.  You need to joint the scaffold tubes by different types of scaffold fittings: right angle, rotation, girder, sleeve, putlog, board retaining couplers, ladder clamps, etc.

Scaffold Boards In Tube Scaffolding

For tube and coupler scaffolds, scaffold boards are very important scaffolding components. It forms walk boards for scaffold workers in construction. The scaffold boards are used as work platforms too for materials and machinery.

Scaffold boards for tube and fitting scaffolding are always without hooks. It is fixed to the galvanised scaffold tubes by board clamps like BRC coupler and Limpet clamps etc.

You can find timber scaffold boards and steel scaffold boards for your tube and coupler scaffolding system.

Timber Scaffold Boards

Timber scaffold boards are made of European white pines. Like Douglas fir,  Finland Spruce, etc. Size of the timber scaffold boards for tube and clamp scaffold include

  • 225(width)x38mm(thick)
  • 225(width)x63mm(thick)

Steel Scaffold Boards

Steel scaffold boards are made by steel C profiles. You can find pre-galvanized scaffold boards(GI), hot-dip galvanised scaffold boards and painted scaffold boards for your tube and coupler scaffolding.   Steel scaffold boards sizes are customized:

  • 225x38mm
  • 210x45mm
  • 230x63mm

Fall Protection for Tube Scaffolding

Tube and coupler scaffolding and system scaffold are designed with fall protection in construction. You can use 2 types of fall protection for your tube scaffolding:

  • Handrails Protection
  • Timber or Steel Toe Boards

Tube Scaffolding Ladder Beams

Scaffold ladder beams are made by 48mm scaffold tubes too. You can find 3.2mm and 4.0mm scaffold ladders beams.  Ladder beam lengths are customized from 1.0m to 6.4m(21 feet). Following you can find the 4.0mm ladder beam weight.

How Far Can A Scaffold Be From The Wall In Construction

When a scaffold is used to frame around the building/structure in construction. You can make the scaffold left from the structure wall about 300mm. While the width can not be far than 14 inches. Between the building or structure wall and scaffold, you can use anchor tubes(wall tie) and eye bolts for fixing and connecting.

TG 20:13 For Galvanised Scaffold Tubes

TG 20:13 is the technical guide for galvanised scaffold tubes, tube and coupler scaffold styem. You can download the TG20:13 regulation here.

Wellmade Galvanised Scaffold Tube

Wellmade’s galvanised scaffold tube is part of the tube and clamp scaffolding system.  It is fixed by scaffold fittings and connectors in construction.

Our scaffold tube is tested according to BS EN 39 & BS1139 standards. The test includes chemical composition tests, yield and tensile strength tests, flatten tests etc. You can find a relative test report, MTC for each lot during the galvanised scaffold tube manufacturing.

Galvanised scaffold tube is also called scaffolding pipes. Wellmade offers you all lengths and specifications of galvanized scaffolding pipes. The galvanized scaffolding pipes are used widely in building scaffolding, industrial and civil construction, infrastructure scaffolding, concrete shoring etc.
