    Default How feckin much???

    Am i being a thick 2hat or am i missing something glaringly obvious??

    4.95 for 1 double? don't get it, does it climb the job itself, then attach it's self to the job? Can't stop laughing at this, fecking 4.95 a fitting, lol.

    New 'KLAWZ' scaffold fitting hits the marketplace - ScaffMag - The Scaffolding Magazine
    Claret and Blue through and through!!

    Just had a look at these and can't really see any benefit to them Compared to a normal double

    They look like they fit on top of each other like mills, so you can put main trannies on barnies at standards on boarded lifts, but still can't see the selling point that you'll save time, well enough time to justify spending a feckin b4astard fiver a fitting!!

    If they are made in china I can't see how they cost so much compared with normal fitting. I don't see that much of a difference. They would probably be good enough fitting if they cost the same as normal. They should have ordered in bulk and kept the costs down

    As you say the same result as the Mills 90 in regards to transoms being used on the same ledgers. OK for jobs such as droppers on the rigs ect but the price of the fitting specially coming from China, is a trifle steep to be honest....

    Be interesting to see how many will be queuing up to buy them at a fiver each..

    looks like a nice plan, that said irrespective of what they say it is tested to (30kN) slip it is still only a class B coupler (30kN slip, even reduced by all sorts of Safety Factors would be a blinding load capacity comparable with the old MK3a assuming it passes ALL the other requirements)

    Class B couplers at on the market in the UK at less than 30 bob, the cost v's benefit differential is too great here I feel.

    Hey JTM how are you? Don't think these could be justified even offshore mate. I certainly wouldnt fancy hanging a scaffold and knowing they could put that amount of weight on it, more to the point imagine putting them in the drink at a skydiver a piece. I think it is a remodel of the Mills fitting.

    All said and done I think it's about time that new inventions were taken on a little more in this industry. Just a shame that the money isn't there to support the new radical ideas.

    Having look at this new fitting its a nice to have at this price.
    Looks like the have modified a swivel, to create tube on tube like the Mills 90
    Our companies will always go for the most cost effective materials the meets the criteria
    So this one will be on hold at 4950 .for 1000 fittings

    Im fine mate. I am seriously thinking now of going into scaff inspection or health and safety as I think time now is taking its toll on the tools. Not my age mate but the mileage. You still offshore? Coming back to the subject the Mills 90 were banned offshore due to the vibration loosening the speed bolts if I remember right. Dont think these fittings are speed bolts though but if they are indeed class b doubles then I cant see you using them out there.
    Its the price of them that got this topic going anyway....
