The mason frame scaffolding is recognized by its sturdy, easy to install and disassemble, but if the construction requirements are not clear, there is still a certain risk in the construction of the scaffold. For example, do you know the maximum load capacity of the mason frame scaffolding?

What is the stonemason frame scaffolding?

Mason frame scaffolding is a common industry term referring to our popular frame and support scaffolding. All types of contractors, from carpenters and mason to weekend project owners, use the most common scaffolding to make bricks or bricks safer and more efficient. It is easy to install and remove, allowing you to reach the required height quickly.

Masonry frame scaffolding is generally used for masonry. They are usually used by one or two-story residential contractors, painters, etc., but their modular framework can also be stacked multiple times in large construction projects. In the masonry frame scaffolding, there are two standard frames, 1.5 m from the first standard. The masonry frame scaffolding is completely independent of the stone wall.

The mason frame scaffold consists of two ladders, two pairs of crossbars and four connecting pins.

Frame scaffolding is easy to install and remove, saving time and energy.

Workers can climb the ladder smoothly and safely without the need for additional ladders.

The trapezoidal mason frame scaffolding is especially suitable for brick structures, exterior wall paints or plastering works. Easy to operate, the masonry frame scaffolding can be moved with the casters to carry heavy objects because the weight on the stones is heavy. Therefore, by placing the standard at a fairly close distance, the mason frame scaffolding becomes stronger.


Maximum expected load of mason frame scaffolding

Each scaffolding and scaffold assembly should be capable of supporting its own weight without damage and at least four times the maximum expected load applied or transmitted to the scaffold. In order to calculate the maximum expected load, the total weight of all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, transfer loads and other loads applied to the scaffold (or scaffold components) is reasonably expected at all times. (estimated 250 pounds per person.)


Rug load capacity of mason scaffolding

The loading of scaffold and scaffolding components must not exceed their maximum expected load or rated capacity, whichever is less. The rated load capacity of the bracket is defined as follows.

The maximum weight that can be applied to the bracket is determined by the data provided by the manufacturer and is expressed as an allowable load per square foot (eg, 25 psf, 50 psf or 75 psf, multiplied by the square feet of the working surface of the bracket).

A simple method of overloading to determine if the stent is overloaded is the deflection method. When loading, the deviation of the platform, wood or trim panel shall not exceed 1/60 of the span. The deflection is measured with a tape measure and a straight edge.

What are the general requirements for scaffolding?

Scaffolding above 125 feet above the floor must be designed by a registered professional engineer (ie qualified person).

Prohibition of scaffold lean brackets is prohibited. Tilting brackets are supported by leaning against a building or structure and resting against a building or structure.

Shore scaffolding is prohibited. The scaffold on the shore is placed against a building or structure and secured with props. 


If you understand the maximum expected fit of the mason frame scaffolding, then you will be able to ensure the safety of the construction workers on the scaffold and the safety of your property, which is why it is important to choose a qualified scaffold for precision testing. If you want to buy a safe, durable, reasonably priced, high quality mascot frame scaffolding, Nanjing Tuopeng Construction Technology can provide you with the perfect product.
