Our scaffold galvanised steel plank are tested and approved as per Australian standards AS 1577-2013. The steel plank spans between the transoms giving a non slip surface. Used to make pathway in the scaffold structure and provides a safe walking platform.
KwikUP’s Scaffolding Steel Boards have been load tested for working load limit [WLL] 250Kg. Our testing has been conducted in accordance with the following safety procedures:
- Stiffness Test
- Strength Test
- Sliding Test
- Coefficient of Friction test
In addition to the aforementioned performance tests, dimensional checks were conducted to determine the planks’ geometrical properties.
GEOMETRICAL OBSERVATIONS of Scaffolding steel boards as follows :
Prior to load performance testing, scaffold planks were examined for configuration requirements in accordance with the below referenced clauses of AS/NZS 1577. Dimensional and configurational details of the planks were recorded as follows:
(Clause 1.5). The length of the planks was 2.4m (nom.) and the width 230mm (nom.): PASS
The planks’ base metal thickness was measured to be 1.8mm.
(Clause 1.9). The planks were stamped with the identification markings ‘KwikUP AS/NZS 1577:2013 WLL 250kg UDL’: PASS
(Clause 6.4). End caps were welded to both ends of the scaffold planks. The end caps were fitted flush to the ends of the planks: PASS
(Clause 6.5). The surface of the planks was perforated with 8.0mm (nom.) circular openings. The preformation openings had a nominal area of 50.3mm
(Clause 6.5). All surfaces of the planks were free from burrs and sharp edges: PASS
(Clause 6.6). The planks were fabricated from galvanised steel sheet to prevent corrosion: PASS
Lateral bracing metal straps were welded between the bottom flanges at 0.8m and 1.6m on the 2.4m long planks.
