This guidance gives details of the Fire Retardant treatments available for timber scaffold boards and battens.
This guidance on the use of scaffolding equipment that has been exposed to excessive heat, such as during a building fire and whether it can be safely re-used. Cost of fire damage evaluation does not warrant recovery of metal components.
This guide is intended to aid those who commission scaffold designs by summarising the responsibilities of each party involved at each stage of the process. It also details the requirements for preparing a design brief with information required by the Designer to enable a suitable and sufficient design to be produced, as well as outlining the design process, checking requirements and expected output information. This document is complimented by CG6: Scaffold Design. 6 pages.
A temporary roof or building is a sheeted structure designed to protect the area inside from the effects of weather, dust, etc. This guide is intended to give design and construction information to the suppliers and erectors of temporary roofs and buildings and intended for use by contractors during the building process.
This guidance explains the differences between ‘supplementary’ and ‘check’ couplers and gives typical design applications where high coupler forces could be expected and where additional loadbearing capacity to connections may be required. It also contains guidance on coupler configurations and expected safe working loads (SWLs) where supplementary couplers are used. To ensure that SWL values are as accurate as possible, data provided within this document is based on practical testing rather than calculation.
This guidance note is concerned with advice for the safe erection, use and dismantling of temporary suspended chutes intended for the conveyance of waste construction materials. The guidance covers chutes constructed of detachable sections made of metal or non-metallic material, attached to scaffolding.
