Product Overview

DESSA products are continually developed to ensure the best value and user experience.

All products provide excellent safety features with the added benefit of labour savings and quality in manufacturing. By design, DESSA products are manufactured in a TUV approved QA environment and are fully traceable to source. All DESSA products are carefully made to avoid problems which may arise from the aluminium welding process – heat affected zones are minimised and bolt holes are placed to avoid them.

All products are tested for accuracy after manufacture to ensure unrivalled consistency.

A proven range of systems with over 20 years of continual use in extreme climatic conditions. All ranges are lightweight and designed to be erected without the use of a crane. Multi-purpose weatherproofing fits roof and scaffolds alike and Altrad DESSA temporary roofing can be erected as mono pitch, duo pitch or vaulted configurations using 40cm, 70cm, 78cm and 133cm beam options. Unique boltless technology developed by Altrad DESSA means entire roofs can be erected without the use of tools. Altrad DESSA roofing is suitable for use with any scaffold product and maximum stock utilisation is ensured as Altrad DESSA roof systems employ universal beams that can be used for everyday scaffolding tasks.
A huge range of general purpose scaffolding beams available in 40cm, 70cm, 78cm & 133cm depths and from 0.5m to 8m in length. Lightweight and economical, these beams are manufactured to the stringent requirements of EN1990 ensuring every beam can be traced individually. Altrad DESSA beams are compatible with tube and fittings and all modular system scaffolds.
An essential part of any scaffolder’s toolkit, the safety platform allows the safe erection of the next lift. The OneUp™ is a fold-flat item for easy handling and has an integral ladder to suit system scaffold as well as traditional tube and fit scaffolding. The non-slip, light-weight platform can carry 175kg and should be used in conjunction with relevant PPE.
The RANGER™ stairs system is a quick and easy alternative to ladders. Articulating stair units are designed to suit system and traditional scaffolds. Suited to longer scaffold projects where a solid stair case is more desirable.
• Flat packed and erected in seconds
• Simple inventory for all applications
• No tools required for use
