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 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.

Scaffold board nailplates are specially stamped toothed strips of galvanised steel that can be applied to new or used boards to prevent or to repair existing end splits. Experience gained over many years by the scaffold industry indicates that the service life of a board can be substantially extended if nailplates are fitted. This revised and updated version contains additional information and guidance on the specification and fitting of nailplates.
Scaffold tube storage racks are a common feature of every scaffolding contractor’s yard and many long-term live sites. Whilst tube racks are usually constructed as basic birdcage-like structures, they generally support many tonnes of equipment, so their design needs special consideration. This guidance note considers the design, use and maintenance of scaffold tube storage racks.
