System Scaffolding Rental

System scaffolding is a heavy duty scaffolding with galvanized coating which is great to withstand our ‘salty’ east coast environment. System scaffolding is also compatible with tube and coupler, and is great for any type of industrial, commercial, or even residential construction and renovation, as it is erected with individual up-rights, horizontal members, and vertical diagonal bracing. All horizontal and vertical components come in dimensions as follows:
  • Half- meter
  • One meter
  • Meter and a half
  • 2 meter and three-meter increments
Some additional accessories that we carry for system scaffolding include:
  • Screw jacks and collars
  • Adjustable toe-board
  • Side brackets
  • Swing gate with an optional toe- board
  • Retaining pins
System scaffolding is best suited for square or rectangular structures or facades, but is also very popular for inside and outside tanks, because of its connections on the vertical members allow you to locate horizontal members at different angles. Some advantages of system scaffolding include: very easy and efficient to erect to meet that deadline you are hoping to meet, multiple connections on the vertical members allow for decking elevations to be every 20 ’’ if desired, and compatible with tube and coupler, as well as coming in different dimensions unlike frame having a set height and width.

Tube and Coupler (Clamp) Rental

Tube and coupler, also known as tube and clamp, come in increments of one foot, up to six-foot tubes, from there on, the lengths of tubes come in 2-foot increments until reaching 20 feet. The couplers we provide are set at right angles to make 90-degree connections, allowing other couplers to actually pivot around and central hinge point, allowing you to set tubes at different angles to be used as braces. Our end to end couplers allow you to connect tubes end to end, in both vertical and horizontal orientation. Tube and coupler scaffolding is the most popular for hard to access areas, irregular shaped structures and circular structures, as there are no fixed dimensions to erect. Some advantages include:
  • Light weight
  • Easy to handle
  • Can be built around any irregular shape
  • The light weight construction is also great for shipping, and freight costs
