Scaffolding Equipment is a temporary structure used to support people and material in the construction or repair of buildings and other large structures. To provide stability for a scaffolding framework ties are generally fixed to the adjacent building/fabric/steelwork. The basic materials are tubes, couplers and boards. Tubes are either steel or aluminium, although composite scaffolding uses filament wound tubes of glass fibre in a nylon or polyester matrix. Boards provide a working surface for users of the scaffold. The board ends are protected by metal plates called hoop irons or sometimes nail plates. Couplers are the fittings which hold the tubes together. The most common are called scaffold couplers, there are three basic types: right-angle couplers, putlog couplers and swivel couplers. Other common materials lnclude base plates, ladders, ropes, anchor ties, reveal ties, gin wheels, sheeting, etc. B2BManufactures.Com offers listing of Taiwan & China Scaffolding Manufacturers, suppliers with explicit company profiles, product categories & product images.
