  • Higher load bearing capacities than other 75cm beams.
  • 6 hole spigot improves strength.
  • Available in 1,2,3,4,5 & 6m lengths from stock. 8m x 75cm available by special order.
  • 18 degree, 12 degree and 6 degree ridge beams available.
  • All chords and posts manufactured in traditional scaffold tube size.
  • Vertical posts are provided each 1m on all beam sizes.
  • All posts have collar to enable snap on plan brace – eliminates K frames.
  • Consistent diagonal node spacing when multiple beams are joined.
  • Closed end beams so whole length can be used for support unlike other 750 beams where end support has to be set in 0.5m each side, effectively wasting 1m of beam each time.
