Scaffold Boards Upminster (RM14)

However, the intended use of scaffold boards in Upminster is to provide a strong working platform for workers on scaffolding. They're generally inserted horizontally along scaffold lifts, and are given support at intervals which are based upon the grade or quality of the boards being employed.

Typically 38mm thick and 225mm wide, scaffold boards in the United Kingdom usually come in lengths ranging from 1.5m (5 feet) to 3.9m (13 feet). Wooden scaffold boards are easily identified since they have a metal band on each end, to strengthen the weaker end grain of the board and help to stop them from splitting. Scaffold boards aren't all constructed from wood, and they are available in various different grades and types.

The Different Types & Grades of Scaffold Boards

Grade "A" Scaffold Boards - Used on building sites for decades by scaffolders throughout Great Britain, grade "A" scaffold boards have widely been perceived as the default board for anyone in the scaffolding sector. However, while the name suggests otherwise, they aren't the highest quality boards, and in reality don't meet British Standards requirements. They should not be the first choice on a building project, and they have been known to break on occasion.

BSI Standard Scaffold Boards - These scaffold boards do satisfy British Standards (BS 2482:2009) and are suitable for use on-site. The metal band on the end will be marked with all of the relevant specifics for identification including the British Standards mark, and whether they've been machine or visually graded (M or V). It's recommended that this type of board should be supported at least every 1.2m (3.9 ft) in order to be completely safe.

Plastic Scaffold Boards - Scaffolding contractors in Upminster can also choose to use plastic scaffold boards which are non-slip, have a longer service life and are more resistant to rot and water.

Galvanised Metal Scaffold Boards - Compliant with British Standards requirements (BS EN 12811-1), galvanised metal scaffold boards are flame retardant and are incredibly strong and durable.

Flame Retardant Scaffold Boards - There are wooden scaffold boards available which are flame retardant, typically to Class C of BS EN 13501-1 (British Standards).
