Tube and coupler scaffolding is the original form of scaffolding used around the world. The basic components involved are tubes, fittings and planks.
Regulations dictate the minimum width and height of a bay as well as the maximum width, height and length of bays.
The length of a bay as well as the putlog spacings dictate whether the scaffold is rated for light duty – 225kg, medium duty – 450kg or heavy duty 675kg.
This is the most versatile form of scaffolding as there are no precise sizes that must be considered.
Although training is required to understand and build with tube and clip, a competent person can erect a scaffold up to 4.0m before requiring a National Certificate in Scaffolding.
We sell bundles of 6.5m steel tube and are happy to supply smaller sizes upon enquiry.
