What is Scaffolding walk boards?

Scaffolding planks play a vital role in the construction industry by providing support and stability to aisles and working platforms. It is also one of the most critical parts in the scaffolding system. Scaffolding planks provide a standing surface for employees and equipment, and also ensure that employees can work safely.

Scaffolding planks are usually divided into two types according to materials: wooden Scaffolding planks and metal Scaffolding planks

Wooden Scaffolding Planks

Since wooden scaffolding planks are applied in different construction projects and use different grades of wood, wooden scaffolding planks are also divided into solid pedals and LVL pedals. Solid pedals are usually made from Southern Pine, which provide a good combination of strength and dimensional stability, and are better suited for wet conditions than LVL pedals. LVL treads are made by bonding many layers of thin-ply wood planks together with an exterior adhesive to provide better strength and support at a slightly higher cost than solid treads.

Metal scaffolding planks

Metal scaffolding planks are mainly divided into steel scaffolding planks and aluminum scaffolding planks. Steel scaffolding planks offer excellent strength and durability but add to the overall weight of the scaffolding structure, making them ideal for high load bearing applications. While aluminum scaffolding planks are light weight and low cost, but not as strong and durable as steel scaffolding planks, suitable for projects with lower requirements than steel scaffolding planks.

Metal scaffolding planks are the heaviest and most durable option; they’re also the most expensive.
