Since the introduction of Work at Height regulations, prevention of falling from height has become majorly important to Safety Officers, Site Managers and anyone required to work at height.
Aluminium Scaffold towers are one of the most widely used methods of access and Tower manufacturers, Hire Companies and contractors have had to supply towers which meet the 3T, Through the Trapdoor, or Advance Guardrail methods of assembly and dismantling. Both methods are supported by the H.S.E & Pasma. The through the trap door or “3T method” is the most commonly used mainly because to date, most Advance Guardrail systems have been difficult and unwieldy to use, and substantially increase the cost of the tower, although some building sites do insist upon it.
The Youngman Group has recently launched their new Boss Camlock Advance Guardrail system. This scaffold tower system comprises of frames that are erected before the operative ascends the platform, thereby providing full protection by a guardrails at all times. The frames are secured by the unique Camlock locking system which is incredibly easy and quick to use. The use of the Camlock action and frames also creates increased tower rigidity thus adding to the scaffold tower stability.
This System uses fewer components and is very much quicker and simpler to build. The AGR Frames are less susceptible to loss and damage than braces. Boss Ladderspan, Boss Evolution and Boss Clima towers are now available with Boss Camlock Advance Guardrail as an alternative method of assembly. The Camlock frames are available in 1.8m and 2.5m lengths.
