Dimensions of standard scaffolding in construction
SAKON’s wide range of scaffolding sizes help to meet the requirements for different projects. Learn about the sizes of the scaffolding types below to choose the most suitable one.
I. Introducing scaffolding and the role of size
Scaffolding is an important tool in the construction industry, used to create a solid foundation or structure for construction projects. It is made up of concrete blocks or other materials, and can be customized to suit the specific requirements of each project.
One of the important factors in using scaffolding is size. The size of scaffolding can make a big difference to a project, from small to large, and plays an important role in ensuring that construction is completed on schedule and to a high quality. Good. Safe and effective construction scaffolding must ensure appropriate dimensions for the project. Using the appropriate scaffold size along with correct installation techniques will help create sturdy construction structures.
II. Factors affecting the size of scaffolds
The size of the scaffolding depends greatly on influencing factors, including load and volume of the structure, height and length of the structure, solidity and safety.
A. Load and volume of the project
As for the load factor and construction volume, these are the most important factors affecting the size of the scaffolding. When the project has a heavy volume and large load, the scaffolding must also be able to withstand that pressure and load. Therefore, the size of the scaffolding must be calculated accurately to ensure the safety and stability of the project.
B. Height and length of the building
Next, the height and length of the structure also affect the size of the scaffolding. When the project has a large height and length, the truss must be built correspondingly high and long to ensure safety during construction.
C. Firmness and safety
Finally, the sturdiness and safety of the scaffolding are also factors that affect the size of this device. Scaffolding needs to be firmly built and firmly fixed on the construction site to ensure stability during construction and prevent accidents. This also requires dimensions and designs that comply with safety requirements.
III. Standards and regulations on scaffold sizes
Instructions are considered an indispensable part of all construction projects such as houses, buildings, infrastructure works, etc. It plays an important role in creating safety for construction projects and other buildings. construction workers. The design and construction of scaffolding is trained according to the requirements of national and international standards.
A. International standards
On the market today, there are many international standards for scaffold sizes that are widely applied such as EN12810 – Scaffolding standard and EN12811-1 – Mobile scaffolding. This standard regulates standards such as height, area and weight of scaffolding parts, safety factor, mechanical durability, structure and testing when manufacturing scaffolding.
Thus, from simple standards to complex construction standards, these regulations provide workers with safety requirements, helping to minimize occupational accidents during the construction process. construction process.
B. Regulations on domestic scaffolding sizes
In Vietnam, regulations on scaffold size are clearly specified in the standards TCVN 7573:2013 and TCVN 7575:2013. Accordingly, the size of the scaffolding will be regulated according to the base size therein. At the same time, this regulation also regulates the maximum height of scaffolding, the distance between scaffolding complexes, scaffolding ends as well as hanging cables. Implementing this regulation not only ensures safety for workers and property but also helps speed up the construction process and minimize incidents that arise during construction.
Some scaffold size parameters for your reference:
Height: 900mm, 1200mm, 1530mm, 1700mm
Width: About 1250mm
Bracing length: About 1710mm-1960mm.
For ringlock scaffolding there are some of the following standard sizes:
Pillar height: 1000mm, 1500mm, 2000mm, 2500mm and 3000mm.
Strut length: 1000mm
Tie bar length: 450mm, 950mm, 1150mm, 1450mm.
For System scaffolding:
Vertical bar sizes: 475mm, 950mm, 1425mm, 1900mm
Cross bar: 561mm, 865mm, 1170mm, 1475mm, 1780mm
Cross bar: 1900mm
Size of spear tray (width x length): 400mm, 200mm, 100mm x 1829mm or 400mm, 200mm x 1219mm, or 400mm x 914mm.
In short, with the regulations and standards on scaffold size that have been introduced, construction work is gradually becoming much more convenient, safe and professional. However, the application of this standard is still considered limited to construction projects.
Above are the sizes of construction scaffolding types to help you choose the right type of scaffolding for your project. Selecting the right scaffolding and size is very important for completing construction works to meet the requirements on time and cost.
