    Default System Scaffolders

    would like to know why do System scaffolders use tube and fitting check fittings on hangers / cants
    when the System is designed to hold weight via the rosette or cup?

    Also ive worked all over the world and why in Aus, they still don't understand how / why check fittings go in certain places, you tell them and they try act all smart, next thing they're putting check fittings on a basic independent ledger bracing...

    Does anyone have any basic drawings checks - information i can slam all over the work canteen to drill these boys?

    Ive told them don't mix tube and fitting with System, cause its a total different ball game when working with tube!

    could you be more specific regarding where they are checking. Not all systems are rosette type and there could be a possibility the pin can pop out in kwikstage causing the standard to slip

    Mainly layher scaffolds, for example on puncheons they are using double as top check, single as bottom check.. they just have no idea.

    No one should be dropping off/puncheon off a kwikstage ledger. They’re not load bearing.

    Wasnt refering to puncheon or dropping off of a kwikstage ledger mate, thats pretty obvious there not load bearing. You can still hang and cantilever with this system using the appropriate method, i was just asking what they were checking as in some cases people will check the pins

    Its mainly mixing tube n fitting with layher, the adding check doubles on layher standards.

    If this is true then they must fail the vertical load requirements for guardrails and should not be used for this purpose - is that correct?

    You sound like Jason Gibbs.
