What Tips Shall be Given When Choosing the Scaffolding Planks

Nowadays Steel scaffolding planks  is more popular than wooden or banboo planks and now there’s a lot of steel scaffolding planks of products on the market, many of them are very fancy, the propaganda of their products and many of them are too solid, so in the engineering construction steel scaffolding planks of choose and buy is very critical. On the steel scaffolding planks selection problem, must be careless, in the event of danger and accident it will be irrevocably, so in the head of the engineering construction steel scaffolding planks have the high sense of responsibility when the choose and buy.

In many construction projects, steel planks are to carry the weight of the heavy, and the use of steel pedal is not a one-off cycle, they are used again and again, so the service life of good steel scaffolding planks should be effectively guaranteed.

In addition, our steel scaffolding planks when the choose and buy must pay attention to his anti-corrosive co-efficient, the use of steel scaffolding planks environment is relatively strict, if anti-corrosion performance is not good to rust corrosion and affect the use effect.
Steel board is widely used in our daily life, especially in the construction, construction of city using effect is outstanding, it has played a very significant impact.

Steel scaffolding planks for scaffolding structures play an important role, it is important to building materials, and more and more security, economic development. Steel scaffolding planks are trend of development, replace the old bamboo board, wood board, using more safe and reliable, it is more convenient to construction.

In Austrialia market, the kwikstage scaffold is common used in the construction sites and the cooresponding steel plank is 230*63mm which is made of pre-galvanised sheet. Regarding our kwikstage scaffold plank, it is AS/NZS 1577 approved with 250 kg WLL. All of these are about safety.

What are the differences between wooden plank and galvanised steel kwikstage plank

As we known, galvanised steel plank is the indispensable part in the whole kwikstage scaffold system. It provide the walking path and working platform for the workers. Therefore, the quality of planks are very important for safety, the below is some difference between wooden plank and steel scaffold planks

1. The security is higher

Traditional wooden plank easy corrosion, easy burning, easy to crack, are prone to accidents; Angle steel sheet convenient rust off; While hot dip galvanized steel board has the advantages of corrosion resistance, prevent light. Company production of new steel scaffolding planks has the specifications forming the arrangement of convex hole, anti-slip coefficient is high, the higher degree of safety.

2. Easy installation fast

The same specifications of the scaffolding, steel scaffolding planks is 1/2 – one-third of wooden board, the weight of the snow and rain days wooden ramp become damp, is heavier and after absorbing water, at the same time, because the rain will not be prevented slippery, very prone to accidents. Construction workers to build steel scaffolding planks, board to 2-3 of them carried, and steel scaffolding planks for 2-4 can a person carrying.
To improve the efficiency of construction, at the same time the high strength steel scaffolding planks and can reduce the number of scaffold frame tube.

3. Long service life

Wooden plank after sun, weathering damage more serious, after use 3-5 times, can no longer safe continuous use, and the intensity of hot dip galvanized steel scaffolding planks is high, not easy to corrode and not easy deformation, less affected by the heat bilges cold shrink, greatly improve the service life and save construction cost.

4. Easy to management

Because wooden planks flammable, management will appear safe hidden trouble. The high strength steel scaffolding planks has become a trend of the construction and installation industry. Especially the scene of the steel board can be neatly stacked, greatly improving the image of the enterprise.
