Ladder Beam Sizes & Weight
Steel Ladder Beam Scaffolding
Steel ladder beam scaffolding is the most popular ladder beam. It saves more cost than the aluminium ladder beams. You can find all sizes and specifications of steel ladder beams:
- S355 & S235 Steel Grade Ladder Beam.
S235 and S355 steel grades are available for all size steel ladder beams for your scaffolding
- Lightweight & Heavyweight Ladder Beam
Wellmade Lightweight ladder beams are fabricated by O.D 48.3×3.2mm scaffold circular hollow tubes EN 10219 standard. While heavyweight ladder beams are made by O.D 48.3×4.0mm scaffold tube BS1139 standard.
Steel ladder beam surface is a very important factor in durability and corrosion resistance. There is self-colour, painted, and galvanized steel ladder beams. Painted ladder beams are made from black scaffold tubes, painting after the welding.

Aluminum VS Steel Ladder Beams
Aluminum Ladder Beams are made from O.D 48.3×4.47mm aluminum scaffold tube. It is lightweight scaffold material. You can find both 228mm and 353mm aluminum ladder beams for your scaffolding construction.
Wellmade manufactures the aluminum ladder beams by 6082 T6 alloy grade aluminum circle hollow sections. It complies with BS 8118 and TG20 standards.
Wellmade steel ladder beams are not as lightweight as aluminium ladder beams. But it is much cheaper than the alloy ladder beams. Thus you can choose steel ladder beams for your construction too. In construction engineering, the steel ladder beams function is the same as the aluminium ladder beams. The steel ladder beams are tested according to BS 1139, EN 12811 standard.
Ladder Beam Scaffold Dimension
The standard size of ladder beams is 305mm width(center to center) and 305mm rung distance. The popular length of the ladder beam includes 1m, 1.5m, 2.0m, 2.5m, 3.0m, 3.5m, 4.0m, 4.5m, 5.0m, 5.5m, 6.0m, 6.4m etc.
Ladder beam dimensions can be in feet too. In UK and Ireland countries, the standard ladder beam include 8′, 10′, 13′, 14′, and 15′, 16′, 18′, 20′ , 21′.
Wellmade customizes scaffold ladder beams according to your design too. We can test the load capacity for your newly designed ladder beam to give safety support for your construction scaffolding safety calculation.
For example, we have produced 10m long ladder beams in S355 steel grade. The width of the ladder beam can be 228mm, 360mm, 310mm, 400mm, etc.
Scaffold ladder beams are manufactured by the standard diameter of scaffold tubes. Thus in construction, they are fixed with scaffolds simply by scaffold fittings. That is why both steel and aluminum ladder beams are compatible with all scaffolding systems and construction.
Ladder Beam Scaffolding
Ladder beams are required when a big span is between two scaffolds. It creates an opening area/access for construction and allows the handling of scaffolding materials, exits, and entrances during construction.
Ladder beams are with top and bottom tubes and vertical tubes at every 305mm. They are a type of heavy-duty horizontal member in scaffolding. Using ladder beams can ensure safety load even in large-span scaffolding.

Ladder Beam Scaffold Test Report
What Raw Material Used for Ladder Beam Manufacturing
There are steel ladder beams and aluminum ladder beams in scaffolding.
- Steel ladder beams are made of O.D 48.3×3.2mm and O.D 48.3×4.0mm scaffold tubes. The scaffold tube steel grades could be S235 and S355.
- Aluminum ladder beams are made of scaffold tubes OD 48.3×4.5mm in alloy grades 6061 T6 and 6082 T6
O.D 48.3×4.0mm steel ladder beam tubes are tested according to BS1139/En39 standard
O.D 48.3×3.2mm steel ladder beam tubes are tested according to EN 10219 standards.
All of the ladder beam raw materials need to be tested by both chemical composition and physical properties. Include, but not only, tensile strength, yield strengths, elongations, bending, flattening, etc.
