Scotti Co has launched a new website service to help contractors work out what potential savings there could be by using Scotti fittings as a method of securing toe boards.
Scotti fittings are designed to remove the need to install ‘Deadmen’ – a vertical tube attached to the handrails able to reach down and attach the toe board.
Matt Johnson of RDG Engineering said: “Weight can be a critical factor when designing jobs, so anything that can help designers and scaffolding contractors improve efficiency is valuable to the market.”
An analysis of a potential project where a tower (16 x Lifts) was to be built on top of a gantry revealed that by replacing the Deadmen on the tower, there was a 7 per cent weight saving.
The Scotti Co website calculator can help contractors work out what potential savings there could be. Mr Johnson concluded: “Where weight saving is an issue, every fitting counts.”
