    Default Safelinx Board Retainer - Simple, Quick, Safe... Across the Board

    "The biggest single cause of accidents to scaffolders is not falls from height ... but slips, trips and falls on the same level."- 2008 NASC safety report.

    This shows that the safety benefits of securing scaffold boards are undeniable, not just for scaffolders, but for any site operative using scaffolding on a regular basis.

    The problem is that until now, traditional scaffold board retention methods have been considered awkward and time-consuming. Resulting, more often than not, in people being content to save time by continuing to work with unsteady, displaced and missing boards.




    Safelinx scaffold board retainers are an innovative new product offering many benefits.
    They:

    • Are incredibly simple and effective, making them easy to fit - right first time, every time.

    • Save a huge amount of time, taking approx 20 seconds per fleet to fit, compared to around three to five minutes for more traditional methods - and give a better result!

    • Dramatically improve onsite safety by effectively securing multiple fleets of boards.

    • Reduce the number of items on site.

    • Help you to comply with SG4.5 safety guidelines.

    • Offer value for money, and are manufactured from recycled materials, saving costs for your budget, and for the environment.


    The current HSE drive to reduce slips, trips and falls requires positive action.

    SAFELINX is the answer.

    Safelinx scaffold board retainers are easy to install and effective enough
    to ensure everyone's safety onsite.

    Do these fix to the scaffolding & are they designed to prevent uplift due to wind loading?

    I'd be interested in their load bearing capacity - I guess the zip ties would snap before that was reached though
    Anyone know the tensile strength of the zip ties?

    Are you referring to and have you got concerns with regard to the upward thrust of Wind Force Velocity ? and yield point of zip connectors to Ledger ?...

    Fastening boards using Safelinx does help to prevent uplift due to wind loading (have a look at the end of the video on You Tube where we attempt to lift the boards and nearly lift the whole scaffold), in addition to this it prevents the boards creeping and moving due to foot traffic eliminating small trip hazards and gaps that can appear over time.

    No 'concerms' Gar, as I am not (yet) endorsing the product (& am not sure it is meant for that particular application), but you have hit the nail on the head regarding my 'interest'
    One zip tie could be resisting an upload force of approx. 170Kg (quick calc assuming 30m high scaffold, on the coast)

    Thanks for the comments. The speed of install (20 seconds/per unit) and its effectiveness will most definately give rope lashing a run for its money. It also takes out the potential human error factor of poor lashing, we've all seen jobs where the lashing becomes a trip hazard.

    We have had some testing done and it tops out at around 330kg using 7.8mm nylon cable ties.
