Ringlock Buyer’s Guide

Ringlock scaffolding is one of the most popular types of scaffolding systems in the world. As a modular scaffolding system, it is extremely versatile and can be erected from the ground up or suspended. Ringlock scaffolding can also be erected in a stationary or rolling tower configuration, which makes it perfect for safe work at height.

The challenge of Ringlock scaffolding is deciding what components are needed to create a solution that works for your job site. For example, if high loads are going to be transferred through the scaffold, then Truss Ledgers (Double Ledgers) will be necessary. Likewise, if the scaffold is going to be suspended or hung, then a decision must be made on whether to erect the scaffolding using Ringlock Lattice Girders or a large Truss.

In addition, Ringlock component sizes vary depending on the region you are operating in. For example, in North America and Australia the Imperial Ringlock sizes are available in 7’-0” (2.13m) and 10’-0” (3.05m) bay lengths. However, in South America and Europe, available bay lengths are 6’-9 ½” (2.07m), & 10’-1” (3.07) respectively.
