Ringlock Scaffolding Load Capacity Test Result

Ringlock scaffolding is one of the modular scaffold systems that are more and more popular globally. A lot of construction companies and contractors want to use ringlock scaffolding, instead of what they used in the past scaffolds like tube clamps, cuplock, frame scaffold, etc., because of the versatility, easy erection, cost saving, and durability of the ringlock system. When start to use ringlock scaffolding system, you want to know more about the load capacity to ensure safety in construction. As a ringlock scaffold manufacturer, we have produced and tested ringlock scaffolding for 20 years. Can give exact tested load capacity data for the ringlock scaffolding.

OD48mm Ringlock scaffolding load capacity is 396.3 KN (three tiers). OD60mm ringlock scaffold load capacity is 784.98 KN (three tiers). You can have ringlock scaffold three tiers tower load capacity as well as ringlock system components bearing weight here.
