Scaffolding Guide

Width

The width of the scaffold and the distance between the front and back rows of standards is determined by the intended use of the scaffold. This width should be a minimum of 600mm and is often expressed in terms of 'the number of boards wide'. The 600mm minimum width is a requirement in the Construction (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996 which are currently being renewed.

Scaffold width or board width is the distance between the standards. This measurement is taken at the shortest point.
