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.

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.

This guidance gives details of the stress corrosion cracking (SCC) that can occur in certain materials when subjected to tensile stress and specific corrosive environments. Although rare in our industry, it can lead to unexpected sudden failure of certain metals. Whilst chemical environments and alloys are highly specific, this guidance explains the process by which SCC can occur and advises that specialist advice may be needed where SCC is possible or has occurred in the past.
Many free standing temporary scaffolding structures, such as access towers, major signboards and protection enclosures, need to be anchored to the ground, primarily to resist wind forces. This guidance gives some details of the various applications available.
