Cup Lock scaffold is a tubular system scaffold that uses the cup and blade locking mechanism for a fast, safe, and efficient erection and dismantle process at industrial construction and maintenance projects worldwide.
The system is composed of vertical standards, horizontal (ledgers), and diagonal braces, designed and manufactured to support heavy loads.
Designed to be versatile and durable. From clamps and adapters to trusses, vertical and horizontal standards, our multipurpose scaffolding systems are easy to maintain and provide quick and easy access for construction and repair projects
Tube specifications refer to the requirements for the metal tubes that are used to create the vertical standards and horizontal ledgers of the cup lock scaffolding system. These tubes are made from high-strength steel and are designed to meet specific size and strength requirements.
Cup lock scaffold verticals, also known as standards or uprights, are the vertical metal tubes that form the backbone of the cup lock scaffolding system. They provide the primary support for the horizontal ledgers and the working platforms.
Cup lock scaffold verticals are essential for ensuring the stability and safety of the entire scaffolding system
Cup lock scaffold horizontals, also known as ledgers, are horizontal metal tubes that run between the vertical standards to form the working platform of the cup lock scaffolding system. They provide a sturdy support for the decking or planks that workers stand on while performing their tasks. Horizontals play a crucial role in providing a strong and reliable support system for the entire scaffolding structure
Our Cup Lock Horizontals are fully compatible with other leading cup lock systems around the world.
Cup lock trusses are used in construction and maintenance projects.
They are known for their increased load-bearing capacity and larger spans when compared with the standard cup lock horizontal ledgers.
Clamp braces consist of two steel tubes with cup lock fittings at each end, which are designed to be installed on cup lock verticals. The brace tubes are connected using a swivel clamp, which allows for adjustment to the desired angle.
Cup lock braces clamp are engineered to resist lateral loading on scaffolding – mainly caused by winds – preventing it from swaying or buckling under the weight of workers, equipment, and materials.
Cup lock face braces are used to provide lateral stability to the scaffolding system, preventing it from swaying and laterally displacing due to the weight of workers, equipment and materials during windy conditions. They are typically installed in a vertical position, parallel to the face of the building and fit different scaffold configurations.
From a structural standpoint, these braces are preferred over placing a clamp on diagonals.
Board bracket consist of a steel plate with a cup lock fitting, which is designed to fit onto the vertical standards of the scaffolding system. The plate has a horizontal extension that provides a platform for supporting wooden boards, creating a safe and stable working surface for workers.
Cup lock board brackets are typically installed at regular intervals along the scaffolding system to support the wooden boards, which can be easily secured in place using board retaining clips. The brackets are available in different heights, allowing for flexibility in creating the desired working surface.
Caster adapters consist of a steel plate with a cup lock fitting, which is designed to fit onto the vertical standards of the scaffolding system. The plate has a series of spaced-out holes that accommodate a caster wheel, allowing the scaffolding system to be easily moved around a job site.
Cup lock caster adapters are supplied with different holes to fit different casters.
Cup lock deck adapters are typically installed at regular intervals along the scaffolding system to support the scaffold decks, which can be easily secured in place using retaining clips. The adapters can be adjusted to different heights, allowing for flexibility in creating the desired working surface.
DSS Cup lock California guardrails are designed to meet or exceed safety standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in California, some of the strictest in the United States. The guardrails are constructed from high-strength steel and, as per requirements, meet the height requirements laid out by the OSHA in California.
The cup lock California guardrails are easy to install and are compatible with a variety of accessories, such as toe boards and mesh panels, to provide additional safety features.
DSS Cup Lock Guardrail Posts are used for a variety of applications including to provide vertical support for guardrails at midspan between vertical legs. Every Guardrail Post manufactured meets the highest possible standard of quality provided to our clients.
The clamps are used to connect vertical standards at the midspan of a bay on top of a ledger, truss, lattice girder, etc.
Cup lock support spigot clamps are typically installed in cases where a standard leg is not able to go all the way to the ground, for example when the scaffold needs to clear an entrance to a car garage. This helps to transfer the weight of the scaffolding system evenly and provides additional stability.
Cup lock aluminum stair stringers are a type of stair system used in cup lock scaffolding systems. They consist of a series of lightweight aluminum stringers with hooks at the ends designed to fit on the horizontal ledgers. The stringers are connected using horizontal ledgers to create a stable and safe staircase for workers to access higher levels of the scaffolding structure.
Cup lock aluminum stair stringers are easy to install and can be quickly assembled and disassembled as needed, providing flexibility and convenience for workers. The stringers are also designed to be lightweight, making them easy to transport and maneuver around job sites.
They consist of a horizontal steel platform which fit onto the brackets already installed on stringers. The treads are installed between two cup lock aluminum stair stringers to create a stable and safe staircase for workers to access higher levels of the scaffolding structure.
Cup lock stair treads are designed to be slip-resistant, providing a safe working surface for workers even in wet or slippery conditions.
This consists of a horizontal steel tube with hooks which are designed to fit onto the horizontal standards of the scaffolding system.
The intermediate transom cup lock scaffold is installed between two horizontals at the mid-span of a bay to provide support for the planks in case there is a need to have a void at some point in the bay.
