WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING SCAFFGAP?

It’s good for your corporate image

Using ScaffGap demonstrates your company’s commitment to safety.It enhances your ‘considerate contractor’ credentials and is a visible sign that you care about the safety of site operatives and members of the public.

It's good for compliance to H&S Law

Using ScaffGap not only demonstrates your company's commitment to proactively promoting safe places of work but keeps you on the right side of Health and Safety Law. Contractually scaffold companies are expected to erect, adapt and dismantle scaffolding in accordance with legislation, best practice and British & European Standards, BS EN 12811-1. Without addressing the inherent gap within a working platform, the scaffolding contractor will not be meeting their legal duties under Health and Safety Law. BS EN 12811-1, TG20:08 and The Work at Height Regulations 2005 all make specific reference to gaps within working platforms. Using ScaffGap on a working platform shall provide compliance to all standards!

It’s fast

ScaffGap simply clips onto one of the scaffold boards on either side of the gap to create an instant,safe and secure bridge between the two, much quicker than cutting and fitting plywood.

It’s economical

ScaffGap is also extremely cost-effective, having the capability to be used over and over again on the next job, and the next, to deliver an excellent return on your investment. It is much cheaper than plywood which causes a trip hazard and is thrown away at the end of the job.

It’s safe

ScaffGap complies with both the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and recognised industry best practice. Manufactured from a high-impact polymer, ScaffGap® has excellent load bearing qualities and will withstand everyday site use.

It’s easy to fit

ScaffGap does not require any special tools or training to fix and is available in sizes that conform to standard centres. ScaffGap can also be cut to size using simple hand tools with the minimum of fuss.

It’s green

ScaffGap is made from recycled materials and can, in turn be recycled. ScaffGap® can be used over and over again. It has a long life cycle and less energy is required to produce it compared with other materials such as plywood.

It’s available for many different types of scaffolding

There is a version of ScaffGap for Tube and Fitting Scaffolds, System Scaffolds, SupaDeck and we have a new heavy duty version in production for tube and fitting.

It’s the best thing since sliced ply!
