Scaffold boards in the United Kingdom are traditionally 225mm wide, 38mm thick, and come in lengths ranging from 1.5m (5 feet) to 3.9m (13 feet).

The Different Types of Scaffold Boards

Grade "A" Scaffold Boards - Used on construction sites for decades by scaffolders all over the United Kingdom, grade "A" scaffold boards have normally been perceived as the standard board for anyone in the scaffolding industry.

They certainly shouldn't be the first choice on a construction site, and they have been known to break every now and then.

BSI Standard Scaffold Boards - These scaffold boards do meet the relevant British Standards requirements (BS 2482:2009) and are appropriate for use on-site. The metal band on the end will be stamped with all the relevant particulars for identification including whether they've been visually or machine graded (V or M), and the British Standards mark. To fulfill the recommendations these scaffold boards must be supported at 1.2m (3.9 feet) intervals.

Plastic Scaffold Boards - Brierley Hill scaffolding contractors who prefer boards which are more resistant to rot and water, are non-slip and have a longer service life, can choose to use plastic scaffold boards.

Metal Scaffold Boards - Durable and extremely strong, galvanised metal scaffold boards are flame retardant and are compliant with British Standards (BS EN 12811).
