TG20 provides the definitive guidance for scaffolding constructed with tube and fittings throughout the UK. TG20:21 builds on TG20:13, and makes the eGuide software, Design Guide and Operational Guide available via the new NASC ePortal, on a subscription basis. The eGuide produces pdf compliance sheets, which now include more information and an illustration. The guides are fully searchable online.
The ePortal is available here from computers, tablets and smart phones via web browsers. Each subscription gives access from multiple machines, but only one machine at a time.
Purchase and use of a subscription implies acceptance of the subscription agreement, found here, by all users.
There will be a delay between a purchase on the website and activation on the ePortal. Purchase activation will only take place during normal office hours.
The price shown includes VAT at 20%.
To pay the NASC member price, log in to the web site before completing your purchase.
To renew more than one subscription please add serial numbers to the basket one at a time.

BS2482:2009 defines both visual and machine strength grading standards for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.2m spans and 63mm x 225mm boards supported at 2.5m spans; and machine strength grading standards only for 38mm x 225mm boards supported at 1.5m spans. This guidance is reviewed on the basis of removing A grade boards that should not exist. A visually graded board is still a BS2482 product and should be marked as such on the end band.
Traditionally, flame retardant timber decking has long been a fundamental requirement for scaffolding in various sectors of the industry. However, in the light of the ‘Grenfell’ disaster, there has been a substantial increase in the number of contracts which specify the need for flame retardant scaffold boards.
This document gives details of various fire retardant treatments available, the recommended specification and guidance for care and storage.
Many free-standing scaffolding structures, such as access towers, major signboards, fences and enclosures, need to be anchored to the ground, primarily to resist wind forces. Whilst all structures requiring restraint via anchoring to the ground should be subject to a bespoke design produced by a competent engineer, the guidance considers different types of anchors available and typical indicative holding capacities, the possibility of disturbing underground services, the use of guys and scaffold tube restraint.
TG4:19 had amendments predominantly in relation to the orientation of ring bolts where current thinking is that settlement is probably greater than side wind loads so reduces potential shear loads on the bolt. Other minor changes were cosmetic. A recent update in April 2019 saw the removal of one reference only when the guidance was reissued as TG4:19.
