This guidance on the use of scaffolding equipment that has been exposed to excessive heat, such as during a building fire and whether it can be safely re-used. Cost of fire damage evaluation does not warrant recovery of metal components.
This guidance gives details of the Fire Retardant treatments available for timber scaffold boards and battens.

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.
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.
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.
