    NASC LAUNCH INTERACTIVE GUIDE ON SCAFFOLD DESIGN

    Package aims to help clients, suppliers and users to confirm compliance  

    The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) has launched a new “interactive guide software package”.

    The new guide has been developed in conjunction with CADS (Computer and Design Services Ltd) to help clarify what is and what isn’t a ‘Basic Scaffold’ as covered in TG20:08 volume 1 and to demonstrate safe methods of working to BSEN12811-1.

    ‘Basic Scaffold’ test provided

    TG20:08 interactive guide has been designed enable Scaffolding Contractors, Main Contractors and Clients to verify whether a proposed scaffold structure will comply with TG20:08 as a ‘Basic Scaffold’.

    The guide describes TG20 topics with text, videos and graphics in a step-by-step process. The interactive element provides a 3D environment where the user can edit, adapt and customise standard scaffolds.

    Within the 3D environment users can check to see if their scaffold ‘Passes’ or ‘Fails’ the criteria for a ‘Basic Scaffold’. The system will identify the particular parts of the scaffold that do not comply.

    Designed for everyone working with scaffolding contractors

    NASC have designed the guide to aid: Scaffold managers, Scaffold supervisors, Scaffold estimators, CDM and CDMC’s, Quantity surveyors, Main Contractors, Site Managers, Site Agents, Health and Safety consultants and anyone else working with scaffolding contractors

    The Interactive Guide provides the following features…

    • Step by step introduction to TG20:08 and how to use the software
    • Easy to use drag and drop tools
    • Specific selection of ‘S’WIND factor
    • Alter Duty loadings on the scaffold
    • Configure tie patterns and layouts
    • Add sheeting/netting to your custom scaffold
    • Add pavement lifts
    • Add specific items such as bridging beams

    The package is priced at £250 plus VAT (for non-NASC members) the software (including a DVD and Dongle) can be directly ordered from the NASC at http://www.nasc.org.uk/tg20interactiveguide
