Scaffolding Guide

Putlog Coupler

Intermediate transoms are used for extra board support when a lift is to be boarded over as a working platform. The intermediate transoms are usually laid across ledgers in the centre of each bay, fixed with putlog couplers. Additional intermediate transoms may be required to support shorter boards.
When the platform is no longer required the intermediate transoms can be removed and used elsewhere on the scaffold.

The main transoms can be fixed directly across to each pair of standards with right-angled couplers. Or, fixed to ledgers using putlog couplers, which must be fixed within 300mm from each pair of standards.
