Scaffold tube and clamp is a traditional scaffolding system that involves using metal tubes and clamps to create a framework for elevated work platforms.

The system consists of steel or aluminum tubes, typically with a diameter of 1.5-2 inches, which are connected by a variety of clamps and fittings. The clamps are used to secure the tubes together at different angles, allowing the scaffold to be constructed in a wide range of shapes and sizes to suit different work requirements and site conditions.

The tube and clamp system is known for its versatility and adaptability, as it can be used to create structures of almost any shape or size. It is also relatively easy to assemble and disassemble, and can be adjusted as needed to accommodate changes in the work environment or job requirements.

Tube and clamp scaffolding is still widely used in construction, maintenance, and repair work, although it has been largely supplanted by newer modular scaffolding systems in many applications. The system is recognized as a safe and effective means of providing elevated working surfaces for workers, when used properly and in compliance with relevant safety regulations and standards.


An open-end aluminum tube is a hollow cylindrical tube made of aluminum that has open ends on both sides. These tubes can be produced in a variety of sizes and thicknesses and can be used for a wide range of applications, depending on their specific characteristics.

One common use for open-end aluminum tubes is in construction and engineering, where they can be used to create lightweight and durable structures. Aluminum tubes are often preferred over other materials because of their strength, corrosion resistance, and ability to withstand extreme temperatures.


A plain end steel tube is a type of hollow cylindrical pipe made of steel that has no threading or coupling at the ends. This means that the ends of the tube are straight and smooth, with no fittings or connectors attached.

Plain end steel tubes can be produced in a variety of sizes, thicknesses, and shapes, depending on the specific requirements of the application. They are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and industrial applications.


A rigid base plate is a component typically used in structural engineering to connect a steel column to its foundation. It serves as an interface between the column and the foundation, distributing the load of the column to the foundation while providing stability against lateral forces.

 The plate is usually bolted to the foundation with anchor bolts, and the column is then bolted to the plate with additional bolts. The base plate is designed to transfer the load from the column to the foundation in a safe and efficient manner, ensuring that the column remains stable and upright.


A twist lock tube is a type of structural steel tubing used in scaffolding systems. It is named after the twist lock mechanism that is used to secure the tube to other components in the scaffolding.

The twist lock mechanism consists of a circular plate with a protruding pin, which is welded onto one end of the tube. This pin is inserted into a corresponding hole in another component, such as a scaffold ledger or brace. The pin is then twisted, creating a secure, locking connection that prevents the tube from rotating or slipping out of place.


I-bolt clamps are used to secure two or more objects together. They consist of a U-shaped metal bracket that is designed to fit around an object, with an I-bolt or eye bolt attached to the top of the bracket.

The I-bolt or eye bolt has a threaded shank, which allows it to be screwed into a threaded hole or attached to a threaded rod. Once the bolt is tightened, the U-shaped bracket clamps down on the object, holding it securely in place.


Wide body clamps are a type of clamping device that are designed to secure large and heavy objects in place. They consist of two clamping jaws that are connected by a threaded screw or bolt. The jaws are typically wider and heavier than those of standard clamps, which allows them to exert a greater clamping force.

The clamping jaws of wide body clamps are often coated with a non-marring material, such as rubber or plastic, to prevent damage to the workpiece or material being clamped. Some models also feature quick-release mechanisms that allow the jaws to be opened and closed quickly and easily.


A beam clamp is used to attach pipes, ducts, electrical conduit, and other components to structural steel beams or other structural members. It consists of a U-shaped bracket that fits around the beam, with a threaded bolt or stud extending from the bottom of the bracket.

Beam clamps are commonly used in construction and industrial applications, where they are used to support HVAC systems, piping, and electrical systems


T bolt clamps are used in conjunction with scaffold couplers to create a secure and stable scaffold structure.

T-bolt clamps are used to connect scaffold tubes together, as well as to secure other scaffold components, such as base plates, swivel jacks, and guardrails. They are designed to provide a secure and reliable connection between scaffold components

T-bolt clamps are preferred over other types of clamps in scaffolding applications because of their strength and durability. They are designed to provide a secure and even clamping force, which helps to prevent the scaffold components from shifting or moving.


Wedge clamps consist of a pair of clamping plates, each with a tapered slot or groove cut into it. The workpiece is placed between the plates, and a wedge is inserted into the slots or grooves to tighten the plates around the workpiece. The wedge applies force to the plates, which in turn applies pressure to the workpiece, holding it securely in place.

Wedge clamps are preferred over other types of clamps in metalworking applications because they provide a high clamping force with minimal distortion or damage to the workpiece. They are also easy to use and can be quickly and easily adjusted to hold different sizes and shapes of workpieces.


Ring system accessory clamps are commonly used in scaffolding systems. They are used to secure various accessories to scaffold tubes, such as ladders, scaffold boards, and guardrails.

Ring system accessory clamps consist of a circular ring that fits around the scaffold tube, and a bolt that passes through the ring and tightens onto the tube. The bolt is typically equipped with a wing nut or other type of easy-to-use fastener for quick and easy installation and removal.


Tube couplers are a type of scaffold fitting used to connect scaffold tubes together in a secure and stable manner. They are an essential component of scaffolding systems, as they allow scaffold tubes to be joined together to create a scaffold structure that can support workers and materials.

Tube couplers consist of two hollow tubes, each with a protruding section on one end. The protruding sections fit inside the ends of the scaffold tubes and are held in place by a series of bolts and nuts. The bolts and nuts are tightened to create a strong and secure connection between the scaffold tubes.
