Kent-based Gilray Plant has been supplying a wide range of scaffolding products and accessories for over 45 years. And when Gilray Plant went into manufacturing scaffold boards 10 years ago, managing director Ralph Wilson decided from day one that Gilray’s boards would be made to BS 2482:2009 and bear the BSI Kitemark symbol.
Using state-of-the-art machinery, Gilray’s scaffold boards are all machine-stress-graded, meaning that flaws invisible to the human eye will be detected. Taking a belt and braces approach, the company’s board operatives are also trained to grade the timber visually, with their knowledge being audited every six months by the British Standards Institution.
All timber used by Gilray in the manufacture of scaffold boards comes from sustainable sources with Chain of Custody certification. For bulk orders, the boards can be branded and banded with customers’ names.
