Scaffshield anti-tamper scaffold assembly

Monday, 20 July, 2020 | Supplied by: ScaffShield

Scaffshield is a patented, anti-tamper assembly that can be applied to scaffold couplers and node points to stop unauthorised loosening or removal or scaffold ties, ledgers, hop-ups, ladder beams and stairs. Scaffshield reduces scaffold tampering and the risk of scaffold incidents leading to disruptions, injuries or fatalities.

The Scaffshield assembly is comprised of a nut within a free-spinning outer sleeve, which is installed on a typical scaffold coupler t-bolt using a custom manufactured Scaffkey. The free-spinning sleeve is screwed down to sit over the coupler nut, preventing any standard shifting tool from loosening the coupler nut. A Scaffkey is used to install and remove the Scaffshield over the coupler nut. Scaffkeys are numbered and leased via a controlled register, are only available to site authorised supervisors and cannot be copied or purchased.

Installation is simple and non-intrusive, allowing for the scaffold to be erected first, with Scaffshield installation to follow, or be easily retrofitted. A single Scaffshield unit can be installed within 10–15 s over the existing scaffold coupler and coupler nut. Scaffshield provides control to scaffold supervisors, site and safety managers as to when and how components are removed for ease of work or during dismantling of the scaffold itself.
