The guard rail scaffold ledgers are the lateral horizontal members and constructed from the same scaffolding tube as the standard. Their approval classifies them as non-load bearing. The guard rail ledger comes in many sizes and provides automatic spacing of standards in both access scaffold and formwork support applications.
A spigot and captive wedge assembly on each end of the ledger fits snugly into the “V” pressings on the standard, a positive joint is secured by tapping the wedge firm. The captive wedge is easily “cocked” for trouble-free erection and dismantling. Galvanisation during the manufacturing process creates a sturdy ledger able to withstand the elements.
