Ringlock scaffolding is one of the most popular types of modular scaffolding in the world. The main difference between ringlock scaffolding and traditional pipe-clamp scaffolding is that ringlock scaffolding consists of prefabricated garlands that connect the different scaffolding components together. Ringlock scaffolding systems are available in steel and aluminum. Due to its lightweight nature, it is very efficient and easy to use for scaffolders while still maintaining technical competence.
Ringlock Scaffolding is extremely versatile thanks to 8 attachment points on each wreath. When it comes to tricky angles and system supports, this has a huge advantage over other systems that only have 4 attachment points. Ringlock Scaffolding Systems feature numerous additional scaffolding components that work together to achieve unique designs not possible with other systems.
Speed and efficiency:
One of the significant advantages of ringlock scaffolding systems is their ease of assembly and disassembly. With a unique ringlock connection system, ringlock scaffolding can be installed and removed quickly and easily compared to pipe clamp scaffolding, saving you valuable time and energy during the installation and removal stages. A ledger or diagonal brace can be securely attached to a rosette with just a few taps of a hammer! For most scaffolding jobs, ring locking systems are the most cost effective due to the efficiency savings!
The garland/ringlock design proves a very strong and complete grid system that connects standards (vertical elements), ledgers (horizontal elements) and supports (diagonal elements) at one point. Ringlock Scaffolding is known for its exceptional strength and durability. It is made from high strength steel and is hot dip galvanized after manufacture to fully comply with AS/NZS 1576.1 standards. Our aluminum systems are made from high strength aluminum and fully comply with AS/NZS 1576.1 standards. Ringlock Scaffolding System brackets have the industry’s highest load ratings, allowing Ringlock Scaffolding Systems to achieve scaffolding designs superior to other systems, including cantilevering, bridging and bracing functions.
This is simple but reduces the risk of human error during the scaffolding process as the system is easy to assemble and disassemble. When using any scaffolding system, it is crucial to adhere to all safety guidelines and regulations. Proper training and supervision of workers is critical to maintaining a safe working environment.
In summary, ringlock scaffolding systems offer many advantages over other types of scaffolding systems. The main advantages of the ringlock system are efficiency during installation and removal and ease of storing fewer components. The versatility of the system, with eight attachment points on each wreath, allows for more complex designs and supports, while the strength and durability of the high-quality steel or aluminum construction ensures compliance with AS/NZS 1576.1 standards. The technical data provided on Ringlock Scaffolding Systems enables precise, safe scaffolding designs, saving time and money on over-engineered structures. Whether using a steel ringlock scaffolding system or an aluminum scaffolding system, users can rely on a ringlock scaffolding system that is reliable, safe and easy to use.
