KLAWZ, a new innovative ‘Double on Double’ scaffold fitting, is helping scaffolders to reduce the amount of tube required and erect scaffolding faster than traditional methods.
Available exclusively from Forgeco’s nominated distributors, KLAWZ is fully tested in accordance with BS EN 74-1:2005. KLAWZ exceeded Class B requirements in all tests, with a slip load of over 30kN, more than double the requirement for a normal Class B Fitting.
This unique engineering allows scaffolding schemes to be designed with high load bearing for both ledgers and transoms. The patented spacing means the ledger and transom sit together easily, allowing the scaffold to be boarded out on a single level whilst maximising strength, removing the need for supplementary structural transoms.
KLAWZ also perfectly complements the widely used Prefabricated Structural Transom unit, and has been extensively tested with the Metal Spraying (UK) supplied ReadyFix transom. KLAWZ allows seamless transfer between sections of scaffolding constructed with transom units and traditional tube and fitting. Double and triple standards necessitated by extra leg loading requirements can be added at any point of a build. Deadmen can be installed with a single fitting, and beam installation time can be cut by up to 50 per cent by using KLAWZ instead of traditional methods.
