Comments Off on An Overview of System Scaffolding


The scaffolding of systems in Australia is one of the main requirements of any building builder when performing any type of construction or repair work. One of the most popular systems for creating a stage structure is the Kwikstage or Quickwedge system, which is a modular scaffolding system in which the wedges meet all the requirements to secure all access scaffolds, thus eliminating all loose ends. The wedge fixation of the logs and crossbars offers a simple and efficient way to provide access to the scaffolding in the Kwikstage system. It has an inflexible and well-defined four-way fixation that provides a fixed location without any unwanted movement in the system. This structure provides a guaranteed vertical alignment through a highly effective spike and wedge fitting.

Quickwedge Standards / Vertical

It is made of standard high-grade scaffolding tubes and finds its application in the creation of the support or uprights used in the structure. This product forms a location for ledgers and crossbeams and consists of a series of welded components with V-pressure. It can be used together with an integral wedge shank or as an open end variant.

Quickwedge Ledger / Horizontal

Scaffolding tubes with wedge fixation devices are used to make this component, which is placed on the uprights or standards longitudinally. They can be used both inside and outside the scaffolding in WA, at the level of the platform in the interior and as a handrail on the outside.

Quickwedge crossbar

Used to form a frame as well as to set the internal and external standards transversely while used in conjunction with V-pressed verticals, these cross members are T-sections that have wedge fixing components at the ends.

Access ladder access

It is a simple part that is used to create an easy way to access the platform via stairs. This component links the coupler to a ledger, while the “C” is placed in the opposite ledger and the slat tables are secured together with the transom.

Scaffolding Bracing

It is used to form a facade reinforcement by securing its captive pivoting wedge accessories, which are welded at each end to the vertical pressure / verticals.

Toe Board Bracket

It is subject to the verticals located at the end of the system of stages to hold the board of tips of wood or steel.

End Toe Board Bracket

The components of this scaffolding system in Perth are painted for corrosion resistance and revised quality for low or no maintenance costs.
