When it comes to scaffolding in construction, we often need to make a choice between ringlock scaffolding and cuplock scaffolding. Let’s take a look at which one is better for you.
The load-bearing support of the main structure of the building is mainly based on the vertical shaft pressure. the ringlock scaffolding’s vertical rod and horizontal rod mechanical specifications are 48*3.0mm, the material is Q235, while the cuplock scaffolding’s vertical rod and horizontal rod are Q355B, and the specification is 60*3.2mm. Its bearing capacity is significantly enhanced, the file limit value can reach 20t, and various rod axis are mixed at one point. the overall stability strength of ringlock scaffolding is 200% higher than the cuplock scaffolding.
Ringlock scaffolding using an independent wedge with locking mechanism, due to interlock and gravity, timely pin against knock, horizontal rod plug can not take out, plug-in function since lock, can press the pin for lock and pull down, plus buckle and pillar contact surface, to improve the bending strength of the steel pipe, and can ensure that the combination of the two, the pillar will not deflect.
Although the rent fee for ringlock scaffolding is higher than cuplock scaffolding, ringlock scaffolding still has its own advantages. Due to the large bearing capacity of the ringlock scaffolding, the spacing and step distance are both 1,500 mm. The number of poles used in the same unit is only 65% of cuplock scaffolding. As the increasing of spacing and step distance, it reduces the amount of horizontal rod and vertical inclined rod indirectly by using ringlock scaffolding.
Ringlock scaffolding has the advantages of standardization of the component series, easy transportation and management, no scattered easy components, low loss, and less late investment. And ringlock scaffolding is characterized by less structure, lightweight. There is no need to reinforce after a building molding. With the merits of easy construction and disassembly, within the normal construction period range, you can save labor costs to speed up the construction speed through reasonable organization and deployment, thus reducing the rental costs.
In addition, the ringlock scaffolding adopts a hot galvanizing process, the appearance of the frame is gray metal color. With beautiful and unified color, the ringlock scaffolding is more beautiful than cuplock scaffolding.
Through the above comparison of scaffolding manufacturers, have you made your decision?
