INTAKS® Scaffold & Edge Protection Solutions



An extremely versatile configuration, designed to accommodate many different I-beam and floor heights and overhangs. See photos for different examples. INTAKS I-Beam has far superior safety and labour efficiency characteristics than traditional tube and clip I-beam edge protection (see the video here).

  • Fast and simple on-site assembly.
  • Up to 3.6m spans between handrail posts.
  • Bracing options available to limit horizontal deflection.
  • Two or three handrail configurations available.
  • Handrail height adjustable.
  • Handrail distance from I-beam adjustable.
  • Top handrail maximum height of 1800mm from I-beam (with brace) or 1600mm (without brace); additional bracing can permit greater heights.
  • Threaded Rod has two Lock Nuts for safety.
  • Lock Pin & R-Clip and Spring Clip mechanisms allow for visual inspection of correct installation.
  • Neat and tidy on-site appearance.
  • Modular components may be re-used in other configurations. No need to purchase a completely separate edge protection system.
Installation process

Follow a simple, repeatable process to install with safety and efficiency:

  1. Brackets, Standard Arm and Threaded Rod pre-assembled on ground using tool-less Lock Pin & R-Clip mechanism.
  2. Pre-assembled unit positioned on the I-beam and clamped into position by tightening the Threaded Rod.
  3. Handrail Post and Standard Arm then attached using Lock Pin & R-Clip mechanism.
  4. Handrails secured to Handrail Posts using tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
  5. Complete final checks and handover to site manager.
  6. Dismantle process is the reverse to installation.

Installation can also be done from the safety of the ground before the I-beam is craned into place. Working on the ground, indicative install time of under 40 minutes for 100 metres (assumes two person team and pre-assembly of brackets and handrail posts). Check out the video for more information.


Additional components may be required, depending on whether bracing is needed.

For handrail:

  • 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

For each post:

  • 1 x Handrail Post/Swivel Handrail Post (part #1101/#1102)
  • 2 x Beam Brackets (part #1154) and/or Fixed Beam Bracket (#1156)
  • 1 x Threaded Rod (with 2 x Lock Nuts) (part #1245/#1260/#1275)
  • 2 x Standard Arms (part #1172 to 1177)
  • 1 x H-Frame Bracket (part #1150)
  • 6 x Lock Pins (part #1182)
  • 6 x R-Clips (part #1900)

Note: exact components required will vary depending on set-up and site specific requirements
