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.
The price shown includes VAT at 20%.

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.
NASC members can purchase 10 or more copies of the TG20:21 Operational Guide book at the discounted rate of £25 per unit. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
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.
