Steel Framed Buildings

INTAKS scaffold and edge protection configurations are suitable for use on steel framed buildings. The versatility of the INTAKS System allows you to handle whatever your clients present you with.


INTAKS scaffold and edge protection is perfectly suited for use on steel framed buildings:

  • Attaches to the steel frame using self-drilling tek screws.
  • Much more space because the building supports the scaffold or edge protection.
  • Especially useful on smaller sites.
  • Flat and uniform platform.
  • Variable spans between uprights allow obstacles to be worked around.
  • Fast and easy install and dismantle process so less time waiting around for installers.
  • Tool-less assembly contributes to speed and ease of install and dismantle.
  • Lock Pin & R-Clip and Spring Clip mechanisms allow for visual inspection of correct installation.
  • Strong but light: easy to load, unload and carry.
  • Modular components may be re-used in other configurations – no need to purchase a completely separate system for different applications.
Installation process

The install process is easy to follow and complete - for example, for Attached 1M Down scaffolding:

  1. Lay out Soleboards and Screwjacks where Standards are required.
  2. Mark out position, 1 metre down from top plate, to attach Stud Brackets to building frame.
  3. Attach Stud Brackets.
  4. Configure support frames.
  5. Put support frames into position.
  6. Install platform with Interlocking Planks.
  7. Create Ladder access and install Swing Gate.
  8. Install Handrails using tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
  9. Install Toeboards using tool-less Toeboard Plank Clips.
  10. Complete final checks and handover to site manager.
