Leading scaffold fitting, coupler and ancillary item manufacturer, Presco has collaborated with West Yorkshire-based, MyInstall to develop the innovative new Lay Flat Fitting – eradicating the need for lapping boards on scaffold returns.
The easy-to-use fitting is now tested to 9.1 KN with a Class B certification complete with EN74 – 1 BM. The flexible fitting works with both double-arm transoms and traditional tube and fittings. The use of the fitting allows all scaffold boards to lay flat on a return thus taking out the potential tripping hazards. The structural integrity of scaffold on returns is actually increased, and it’s both affordable and more importantly, improves overall site safety.
MyInstall director, Phil Holdsworth, said: “We approached Presco Components Ltd with the concept for the fitting. They thought it was a good idea and told me they were willing to work with us to manufacture and test it. “Health and safety is always the most important thing as far as we are concerned, so we hope this fitting will make a real difference and it’s great to be able to offer something new to the industry.”
