Under bridge access - suspended scaffolding system

Two-Point Suspension Scaffolding

They are perhaps the most common type of suspended scaffold. Two-point adjustable suspension scaffolding  also known as swing-stage scaffolds.  They play a prominent role in high-rise construction. Two-Point Suspension Scaffolding. Cables connected to stirrups at each end of the platform. Their platforms are suspended by ropes, or other non-rigid means.  Each cable suspension line is considered to be one point.

How to Assemble Metaltech Jobsite Series 6' Baker Scaffold

Outrigger Scaffolds

1. Make sure outrigger beams are:

  • securely braced at the fulcrum point to prevent tipping.
  • secured in place to prevent movement.

2. Make sure the inboard end of outrigger beams.

  • tension members secured to the floor joists underfoot.
  • both braced struts or tension members.
  • braced struts bearing against sills in contact.

3. To prevent their displacement.

  • Verify scaffolds and scaffold components.
  • constructed and loaded in accordance with that design.
