# How to Calculate Scaffolding Material Quantity

## Factors Impact of Scaffolding Material Calculation

Scaffolding material quantity calculations are related to the following factors:
1)Wall Sizes: Wall length and height sizes need scaffolding materials to surround. We also name it a scaffolding area too.
2)Scaffold Bay Lengths: longest distance between two adjacent standards (scaffold posts). Normally it is long side horizontal (ledger) sizes.
3)Scaffold Bay Width: Width size of two scaffold standards. It is always the times of platform width. So there is one board, two boards, three boards, four boards, or five boards of bay widths. Bay width is always short ledger sizes.
4)How many scaffold deck layers do you want to set on the scaffold at the scaffold height?
5)How many platforms to fill the scaffold deck width?
6)Whether need guardrails to protect each scaffold deck?

### How to Calculate Ringlock Scaffolding Quantity

#### Ringlock Scaffold Sizes

1)Wall Length: 6.2m
2)Wall height: 7m
3)Ringlock bay length: 2.07m
4)Ringlock bay width: 0.73m
5)Ringlock platform width: 320mm
6)Need guardrails for each deck
7)Lifting height is 2m

#### Ringlock scaffolding material quantity:

1)7m height scaffold needs 2*3m ringlock standards and 1*1.0m ringlock standards
2) One layer ringlock standards quantity is (3+1)*2=6pcs, Two layers of 3.0m standards quantity is (3+1)*2*2=16 pcs
3)One layer of 1.0m ringlock standard quantity is (3+1)*2=8 pcs
4)One layer 6.2m bay length needs three 2.07m ringlock ledgers.
5)One layer 2.07m ringlock ledger quantity is 3*2=6 pcs
6)7m height (three lifting height) need 4 layers of ledgers, 2.07m ledger total quantity is 6*4=24 pcs
7)Three bay length need 4 pcs of 0.73m ringlock ledgers
8)One layer 0.73m ringlock ledger quantity is 4 pcs
9)7m height scaffold is 3 lifting height and 4 layers of 0.73m ledgers. 0.73m ledger total quantity is 4*4=16 pcs
10)One ringlock decks set 2 pcs of platforms. One layer 6.2m bay length platform quantity is 2*3=6pcs
11) Three (layer) decks platform quantity is 6*3=18pcs
