Kwikstage transom are the transverse horizontal load-bearing members of the scaffold. Made from two lengths of 50mm X 50mm angle iron welded back to back forming an inverted “T” section with banana transom ends assemble at each end.
Transoms are made by welding two 5.00 mm angles back to back. Transoms fit into the lower pressings on the standards to carry steel boards which make a safe working platform.
Automatic basing out/transverse spacing is afforded by Kwikstage transom, which come in four basic lengths of 2.4M, 1.8M, 1.2M and 0.7M which provide 10, 7, 5 and 3 board platforms respectively. A 1.2M return transom is available for flush deck right-angle corners where appropriate.
Transoms have been tested at central point loads as per the requirements of Australian Standards. The inverted “T” transom provides a captive, flush deck. Galvanised steel provides long-term durability.
