What clamps are used in scaffolding?

What clamps are used in scaffolding?

Most clamps are made from high-quality, hardened steel, though sometimes an aluminum clamp may be used. Steel clamps are much stronger, however, and are less likely to crack or otherwise fail. Nuts and bolts are usually used to secure the components, though wing nut systems and quick-release systems are also available.

What size is a scaffold clip nut?

7/16W equates to about 21mm nut. This is the standard size for scaffolding nuts, or at least the scaffolding I have.

What is scaffolding coupler?

Scaffold couplers are essentially the fundamental component that is used to assemble tube-and-coupler scaffolding. Tube-and-coupler scaffolding is defined as ‘a scaffold in which individual circular tubes serving as standards, braces or ties are joined together by means of purpose-designed couplers’.

How much does a scaffold beam clamp weight?

Weight: 3.0 lbs. This Beam Clamp is designed to connect/suspend scaffold tubes directly to, or from steel beams. (Up to 3/4″ thick).

What is swivel clamp?

Swivel clamps also known as swivel couplers are used to connect scaffold tubes at any angle. Its main purpose is to provide flexibility in the scaffolding. For example, if the construction calls for multiple angled positions for the scaffolding, the swiveled clamp may support that design.

What is Kwikstage scaffolding?
