Safer Manual Handling

Because INTAKS weighs so much less (up to ~5 tonnes/house) than other gear, and has been designed with the user in mind, it's a safer choice for manual handling. Choose INTAKS, and avoid bad backs and time off work.


R-Clips Designed for Scaffolders' Hands

We want to make it easy for scaffold installers to do their job. We know that often they are big guys. So we purposely designed our R-Clips with a large bend that makes it easy for fingers to grab hold of, even with gloves on.


Planks to Kneel On

When installing or working on scaffolding, users often have to kneel to get in the right position to do their work. It's no accident that the gap between the anti-slip knurling on our planks is wide enough to kneel between, without resting on the knurling.


Less CO2, Fewer Emissions

Lighter gear, more efficiently packed down, means you can often fit the gear you need for a job on one truck, not two. Fewer vehicles means less CO2 and fewer emissions. It also means fewer staff, less maintenance, less cost, and more efficiency.


Low Carbon Aluminium

INTAKS' primary raw material is aluminium, and a significant percentage of it is recycled. Even better, our recycled aluminium has less than half the global average of CO2 per kg, cradle to grave.* INTAKS: a low carbon footprint choice.

* CEMARS certification of 1.21kg CO2 per kg of aluminium (scope 1 & 2)* or 5.62kg CO2 per kg of aluminium (cradle to grave). This compares to the global average carbon footprint of 11.5kg CO2 per kg of aluminium. Scope 1 & 2 measures emissions up until the manufacture's dispatch gate. Source of data: Extruder. Source of global average data: Rio Tinto. CEMARS = Certified Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme.


Transoms for Speed, Strength and Stability

Thoughtfully designed INTAKS transoms make building freestanding scaffolds a breeze. With a slotted connection that locks in for strength and stability, gear can quickly be put in place and easily adjusted when needed.


Interlocking Planks Unlock Options on Site

INTAKS Interlocking Planks have a massive 4.8m span at medium duty (4.3m at heavy duty), are around 20% lighter than dry timber planks, are extremely strong, and can be easily joined mid-span. The planks interlock end-to-end and side-to-side, creating a uniform, level platform and reducing trip hazards.


Light, Strong & Durable Aluminium

The INTAKS Scaffolding and Edge Protection System is primarily manufactured from incredibly strong but light and durable aluminium. INTAKS requires less time and truck tonnage to install and remove: lower costs = better for your business.


Toeboards in a Snap

INTAKS Toeboards snap onto both plank and floor mounted toeboard clips. Now toeboard installation on your scaffold is completely tool-less. Toeboards can be placed anywhere they’re needed without being limited by bay size.


Handrails Secured with Spring Clips

INTAKS Handrail Spring Clips quickly lock directly onto the handrail tube – for safer, completely tool-less handrail installation, adjustment, and removal that's many times faster than the traditional method.


Tool-less Handrail Joiners

INTAKS Handrail joiners are slip-on and tool-less. Requiring no tightening, they eliminate the need (and time) to come back and tighten hardware. Sight-holes allow visual inspection of correct installation.


Safe Handrail & Plank Install Method

Thanks to the innovative design of INTAKS’ components, planks and handrails can be installed on the level above without leaving the safety of the existing level.


Apex Post

The award-winning INTAKS Apex Post provides installers with a safe work method for installing rails at the apex.

Mesh Screen

The INTAKS Mesh Screen provides protection a level above that provided by toe boards alone. Another gear option that sets INTAKS installers apart from their competition.


Versatile Brackets

The INTAKS Scaffolding and Edge Protection System features a range of brackets that can be used in a variety of applications – such as creating cantilevered platforms. Like every INTAKS component, our versatile brackets are designed, engineered and rigorously tested for superior strength and load weights.
