Scaffold plank supports

Scaffold plank supports

I have a plank with hooks.

Thought about building trestle supports from galvanised pipe - but the expense?

I then found pipe which fits perfectly within the A-frame aluminium ladder rungs.

Insert clips to keep them in position.

And then add ends - which with the clips can be removed and the pipe moved to whatever height rung you want.

Hope that makes sense.

It works.  😉

Hi @Noyade

 

That is so clever using large "R" clips to hold the pipe in place. That's definitely an ingenious and affordable method to hold the scaffold plant supports.

Re: Scaffold Plank Supports

Cheers Eric!

I was amazed the pipe fitted so well within the rung - one more millimetre in diameter and it wouldn't work. The gal pipe, clips and gal connectors - all from Bunnings. I just added the steel plate to the connectors.

With the plank hooks in position on the pipe - the four ends can be screwed against the hooks for a firm wobble-free experience on the plank.
