Robotic welding of a steel scaffold plank.State of the art manufacturing.

The steel scaffold planks are made from 14 gauge proprietary grade galvanized steel. Each plank is roll formed, cut to length, assembled and the hooks  welded in place by an ABB 1400 articulating robot with a 750K Positioner.
Stork laboratories, an accredited third party independent testing lab were selected to perform the load testing of scaffold deck boards manufactured by American Plank. See the test results here.
This high tech manufacturing process results in a superior, consistent product assuring safety for your workers.
Proudly made in America.

Scaffolding terms.Basic scaffolding

The key elements of a scaffold are standards, ledgers and transoms. The standards, also called uprights, are the vertical tubes that transfer the entire mass of the structure to the ground where they rest on a square base plate to spread the load. The base plate has a shank in its centre to hold the tube and is sometimes pinned to a sole board. Ledgers are horizontal tubes which connect between the standards. Transoms rest upon the ledgers at right angles. Main transoms are placed next to the standards, they hold the standards in place and provide support for boards; intermediate transoms are those placed between the main transoms to provide extra support for boards. Since scaffolding is a physical structure, it is possible to go in and come out of scaffolding. As well as the tubes at right angles there are cross braces to increase rigidity, these are placed diagonally from ledger to ledger, next to the standards to which they are fitted. If the braces are fitted to the ledgers they are called ledger braces. Good foundations are essential. Often scaffold frameworks will require more than simple base plates to safely carry and spread the load. Scaffolding can be used without base plates on concrete or similar hard surfaces, although base plates are always recommended.
