Aluminium Beams

Aluminium Beams


Aluminium beams offer significant savings on alternative materials, without compromising performance. They are easier to erect due to the lightweight properties, saving you construction time.

  • Unique design enabling easy connection with fittings to any scaffolding structure.
  • Less than 1/2 the weight of a steel beam.
  • 1.5 times stronger than a steel beam.
  • Independently tested at BRE.
  • Technical data sheet available on request.
  • Connection by 4 bolt spigot system.

Glavanised Ladder Beams Ladder Beams

To provide a clear span between scaffolds. 305mm deep and 305mm centre to centre rungs. Constructed from 48.3mm O/D x 3.2mm high tensile steel and saddle welded at every joint, they fully integrate with existing fittings.

Finish: painted or galvanised

Length: 3.353m (11') Weight: 25kg
Length: 4.877m(16') Weight: 45kg
Length: 6.400m (21') Weight: 65kg

Other lengths can be supplied to order.
