Scotti fittings from Forgeco have helped to save time for Elite Scaffolding on a recent contract.
The fittings, which are available as Scotti Ledger Ties, Scotti Transom Ties and Scotti Aberdeen Ties, were invented by scaffolders Aaron Gray and Scott Wesson. Scotti Co is a joint venture between Gray and Wesson Business Developments working with Forgeco.
Lee Mayhew, operations director at Scaffolding Association member Elite Scaffolding, said: “We first came across the Scotti fittings a couple of months ago and after meeting with Aaron and Scott from Scotti Co, we decided to trial the fittings across jobs of different natures.
“The scaffold at The Queen’s Bank Building in The Strand, London, was highly successful. This is a complicated job where not only did the Scotti fittings save time erecting but they also made it far less intrusive for modifications going forward due to access being required for painting and refurbishment.
“The fittings are stronger than they appear and are very agile, allowing adaptability in the workplace which is key. We used the Transom fittings on the ledger to allow full movement of transoms when needed.”
