What scaffolding
holds more weight?

The weight capacity of heavyduty scaffolding frames is an important factor to consider in the construction industry. Each frame is capable of holding an average of 40,300 Ibs. This ensures that the scaffolding is safe and secure for whatever project it is being used for.

Why does heavy-duty scaffolding frames have a high weight capacity?

Our scaffolding and scaffold components must be able to support their own weight as well as four times the maximum intended load without failing.

At Scaffolding Direct London, all of our scaffolding and scaffold components can easily support their own weight and up to four times the intended load. Our frames are incredibly strong, able to hold up to 40,300 Ibs! The maximum intended load that can be applied to each of our sets is 10,075 Ibs, with the maximum load limit on each leg reaching 2,518 Ibs. That’s a lot of weight that our scaffolding can support!

‘Heavy-Duty Scaffolding Frames’ Load Limits

We conducted tests on three sets of our heavyduty scaffolding frames in accordance with ANSI/SSFI SC1005/05. Each test was done by stacking the frames on top of each other without standard pins and spring clips.

Screw jacks were added to the base of a 20foot2inchtall scaffolding tower and the weight was gradually increased from 5,000 to 10,000 Ibs until the tower ultimately failed.

Why does heavy-duty scaffolding frames have a high weight capacity?

These types of scaffolding frames are manufactured in the highest standards and specifications using higher quality and more expensive steel to ensure the maximum load limit.

Many of our competitors use recycle steel, which unfortunately contains rust and weakens the scaffolding frame. Because of the large amount of weight our scaffolding frames can hold, it is therefore considered to be heavy-duty with that it can support in excess of the 75 ibs/sq. Ft per span.

We use only the highest quality materials in our scaffolding structures that meet the strictest industry standards and undergo regular checks to ensure their strength and integrity. As the leading scaffolding provider in the London area, you can trust us to provide you with a safe and secure scaffolding solution.
