In an ideal world all working platforms should contain no gaps or holes. This updated guidance is a simplification of the previous 2003 issue regarding working platforms, which have additional requirements over those that are normally provided on an access scaffold. Quality and the thickness of ply used are integral.
This guidance identifies the specification and test requirements and minimum markings to be found on all EN74-1 scaffold fittings. The 2015 update sees no change other than dates. EN74-1 is unlikely to change in the next four years.
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.
The effects of heat on scaffolding equipment can have a significant and permanent effect on its strength and performance. This guidance explains the potential issues and the action to be taken if equipment has been subjected to a fire or similar conditions.
The TG20:13 Operational Guide has now been withdrawn from sale as we enter the transition period to TG20:21. The TG20:21 Operational Guide is available electronically via the NASC ePortal TG20:21 subscription. Printed copies will be available later in 2021, to holders of NASC ePortal TG20:21 subscriptions.
The TG20 Operational Guide contains detailed practical guidance for most common types of scaffolding, supported by structural research and calculation. Guidance is provided for a range of standard structures which includes independent scaffolding, interior birdcages, chimney stack scaffolds, loading bays, ladder-access towers, free-standing towers, lift shaft towers, putlog scaffolding, exterior birdcages, tube and fitting mobile towers, tube and fitting loading bays without beams, and tied independent scaffolds with three inside boards.
