Scaffolding Guide

Base Plate

A base plate which is usually made form steel, will have a central shank for locating the scaffold tube. In some cases the base plate may be fixed to a sole board to help prevent lateral movement, especially if a foot tie or kicker lift isn't used.

Standards, also known as uprights, are the vertical tubes which holds the full load of the scaffold to the ground. Every standard must have a base plate which stops the end of the scaffold sinking into the ground.
