Scaffold Planks for Sale
Scaffold planks or scaffold boards are a big deal. They have to be strong enough to support your crew, equipment and materials. They have to be the correct size to fit the span between the frames.
OSHA Scaffold Plank Requirements
You can’t just buy some boards from the lumber yard and expect them be OSHA compliant. OSHA has strict requirements on how much the boards can deflect under a load. We have taken the guesswork out for you.
Our scaffold planks are made from No. 1 DI65 pine and are tested by an independent agency to make sure they meet or exceed OSHA’s deflection standards under medium duty (50 lbs./sq. ft.) conditions.
What Length Should Your Scaffold Planks Be?
16′ boards will cover two 7′ spans. Use these boards whenever a long work platform is needed. The extra length ensures these boards stay in place better and allow you to construct the work platform faster.
12′ boards are used to cover a single 10′ span and provide a foot of lap on each side.
9′ and 8′ boards cover a single 7′ span. The only difference is how much lap you feel comfortable with. OSHA requires 6″ but many contractors opt for 12″.
80.5″ boards are a special cut designed for use with Non-Stop Scaffolding
Other Types of Boards, Planks and Decking
In addition to wood scaffold boards, we carry other types of boards, planks and decking. These have hooks on each end so they fit on the scaffold frames and don’t move. Some will even lock onto the frames. We have solid aluminum scaffold boards, aluminum boards with a plywood deck, and steel boards.
