We Offer These Types of Scaffolding Systems

This slab support system is quick to erect, simple to handle and comprises six basic components. The modularity of the system allows for efficient and easy erection and stripping. The panels can be stripped after three days; leaving the support work i.e. jacks, standards, ledgers and bracing in place until the concrete has cured. All components can be packed into pallets which allows for easy transportation.

Beneficial features include:

  • Maximum utilisation of the equipment
  • Eliminates any deflections of the slab
  • No re-propping required
  • System used with coffers and troughs

Coffer or waffle slabs are used to construct large two-way spanning floors. The fibreglass coffers can be used with the Quick-Strip beams and the plastic coffer can be used with timber girders or table forms.

The Selflock Tower offers quick access to elevated positions. Towers can easily be erected by man and it is very light and easy to move from one position to the next. The tower can be moved on jack caster wheels but they must be locked when tower is in use.

Components include frames, steel boards, tie bars, plan braces and various accessories.

When safe base-to-height ratios are exceeded or there are high lateral loads, the tower should be tied securely to a structure with scaffold tube & fittings.

For any electrical work, plumbing, maintenance, plastering, painting and column erection, the Selflock Tower is a very efficient system to use!
