    Default Band and Plate chair

    The Band and Plate or as i was tought SGBs finest in my opinion the best fitting ever invented(i await the onslaught)
    Who if any amung us have ever used the Band and Plate complete with the CHAIR which made the fitting actually stronger than a double.
    I have seen the chair but never actually used it.
    mr worldwide alan reid bein there and steelcityn i await your replys

    I used them on several occasions in early days & a Power Podger with battery's was not required .

    5 ingredients that consist of a B&P - (G.A. can advise)

    One of the Ingredients: Chair.(Get a firmer grip reduce slippage comes to mind)

    B & P still use them over here now & again for under slings with only 3 ingredients.(Other 2 Chairs & Thumbscrews missing)


    Just getting over a senior moment, we used an abundance when working on new build Kelvin Flats Sheffield in early 70s (now demolished)

    I use them a lot still drilled into walls they are an excellent fitting ,
    I ain't seen a chair in use although I have a couple I use as paper weights lol
    Even in the very early 80s we used nothing but band and plate and DH there where no chairs used , I suppose they where easy lost around jobs

    Having started scaffolding in the 60's I have the pleasure in confessing to having used the band and plate fitting complete with chair and working thumbscrews. God I'm old!

    Those of you that remember a podger will remember the U shaped end which was used for tightening the thumbscrews

    We use them on walls roof saddles etc but haven't built a full scaffold with them in years. Does many use them now for general use or r they just for certain jobs. Good fitting I agree

    Anglesey Scaffolding is the only firm in this area (North Wales) that uses them as a standard fitting.

    B&P were and indeed are the best fitting ever invented!!
    The chair was still in use when I started but seldom returned from site after use.

    The chair took the fitting from a 6.25kN fitting to a 12.5kN fitting if memory serves?

    Still love to use a B&P for bolting to walls or slabs cant think of a scaffold where a B&P would not work
