INTAKS® Scaffold & Edge Protection Solutions

Face Fixed

This edge protection configuration provides excellent flexibility and multiple bracing options. It can be quickly installed on steel- and timber-framed buildings by a two person team.


When you need a purpose-designed edge protection solution that gets put in place efficiently, this configuration fits the bill:

  • Edge protection system supported by timber or steel purlins and girts.
  • Highly adaptable and suitable for multiple situations.
  • Multiple versatile bracing options available to prevent horizontal deflection.
  • Up to 3.6m spans between handrail posts.
  • Two or three handrail configurations available.
  • Handrail height is adjustable.
  • Handrail distance from edge of building is adjustable.
  • Lock Pin & R-Clip and Spring Clip mechanisms allow for visual inspection of correct installation.
  • Modular components may be re-used in other configurations. No need to purchase a completely separate edge protection system.
  • Nominal weight of 3.8kg/m to 6.9kg/linear metre, depending on set-up and whether bracing is required.
Installation process

Installation is typically done with one person in an EWP and the other person on the ground:

  1. Boot Bracket screwed onto purlin with Tek screws.
  2. Handrail Post inserted into Boot Bracket and fixed in place using the tool-less Lock Pin & R-Clip mechanism.
  3. Installer on ground hands handrail tubes up to installer in EWP. Each tube weighs only around 6kg.
  4. Handrails secured to Handrail Posts using the tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
  5. Appropriate bracing is put in place as required.
  6. Complete final checks and handover to site manager.
  7. Dismantle process is the reverse to installation.

Robust and light aluminium components allow quick and safe installation:

For handrails:

  • Handrail Tube (part #HR4 to HR#6)
  • Handrail Joiners/External Sleeve Couplers (part #1165/#SES)
  • Fixed 90° Couplers (part #SFC) and/or Swivel Couplers (part #SSC) – for joining handrails at corners

  • 1 x Handrail Post/Swivel Handrail Post (part #1101/#1102)
  • 1 x Standard Arm (part #1172 to #1177)
