CE Certified Ladder Beam Scaffold Manufacturer

Wellmade is a CE-certified scaffold ladder beam factory. We manufacture scaffold ladder beams according to ISO9001, ISO 3834 & EN 1090. What are ladder beams? What are the ladder beams’ sizes and depths, and how heavy are each ladder beam sizes? How much weight can a ladder beam hold? You can get all the answers here.

Ladder beams are scaffold components that span large distances and openings for the passage of vehicles and workers on construction sites. It is with top and bottom chords and several vertical tube supports between.

The ladder beams are made from OD 48.3mm scaffold tubes. In construction, ladder beams are fixed by standard scaffold fittings and couplers. Thus ladder beams are compatible with all scaffold systems: scaffold tube clamp system, ringlock scaffolding, cuplock, kwikstage etc.

In the next content, you will find the popular sizes and dimensions of ladder beams and the weight of each size. You will find more details of the uniformly distributed load (UDL) and centre point concentrate load of the scaffold ladder beams.

Uniformly Distribute Load (UDL) VS SWL and WLL

Scaffold UDL means uniformly distributed load. It is a test figure from scaffold manufacturers. The 8m ladder beam UDL is 78KN. See the following test result.

Scaffold Ladder Beam Uniformally Distributed Load
Scaffold Ladder Beam Uniformally Distributed Load

SWL is called safety working load in scaffolding. Sometimes it is called WLL (Working Load Limit)

  • SWL = D+(4*L) in calculation.
  • D= dead load(weight of scaffolding)
  • L= live load (weight of workers+material+tools)

In scaffolding inspection and monitoring, WLL and SWL are also calculated by dividing MBL(Minimum Breaking Load) by the safety factor (SF).  The safety factor is normally 1.5-4 in scaffolding according to standards or end users’ requests.

For example, the ladder beam MBL is 78KN as the test result. If the safety factor(SF) is 2(2:1, 2 to 1 or 1/2). The SWL or WLL is 78/2=39 KN.

Ladder Beam Concentrate Load Capacity & Test Report

The ladder beam concentrate load capacity is a maximum bearing load that tests at the weakest point (say the centre of the ladder beam) of the ladder beams.

Following is the test result of the ladder beam concentrate load test for different sizes of ladder beams.

Aluminum VS Steel Ladder Beams

Aluminum Ladder Beam Scaffold

Aluminum Ladder Beams are a type of scaffold ladder beam made from aluminium scaffold tubes.

The aluminium ladder beam diameter is 48.3mm. The thickness of the aluminium ladder beam is 4.5mm.  The depth of the aluminium beams could be 228mm,353mm and 450mm.

The aluminium grade for the ladder beam is 6082. The grades are met up to BS8118 and TG20 British scaffold standards.

Steel ladder beam painted finishing

The steel ladder beam is a type of scaffold ladder beam that is made from steel scaffold tubes. The diameter of the steel ladder beam is OD48.3mm. The thickness of the steel ladder beams could be 3.2mm and 4.0mm.

The steel grade of the ladder beam is S235 and S355.

Steel ladder beams are cheap compared to aluminium beams. The bearing load is higher as well. But steel ladder beams are easier in rusty. So the ladder beams are treated in galvanizing, painting, powder coating or zinc-plated. Some steel ladder beams are made from galvanized scaffold tubes.

Steel ladder beams are tested according to BS1139, and EN12810 standards.

Scaffold Ladder Beam Dimensions

The Scaffold ladder beam depth is 305mm. The distance between vertical support or called rungs is 305mm as well.  The depths of the ladder beams are also available in 228mm, 360mm, 310mm, 400mm etc.

The length of the steel ladder beams is in the range of 610mm to 10m. Include popular length of 6m, 5m, 4m(13′), 3m, 2m, 6.4m(21′), 4.8m (16′). The longest scaffold ladder beam could be 8m and 10m.
