GRP Scaffold Tubes

GRP Scaffold Tubes

Fiberglass GRP Scaffold Tubes are stocked in tubes which have the same outer diameter as standard aluminium and steel Scaffold Tubes, 48.5mm, therefore standard scaffold couplers and fittings can be used on the GRP Scaffold Tubes.

The advantages of GRP Scaffold Tubes are that they are lighter than Steel and therefore use less fuel in their transportation to and from sites. The manual handling is quicker and easier with less likelihood of injury or fatigue. Only small capacity hoists are needed for the higher levels of the scaffolding systems.

They also do not corrode and therefore are excellent for the food or pharmaceutical industry. They are non-conductive and non-electromagnetic which is a requirement for sites near power stations and electrical sub stations.
