The Alto Scaffmate is an all-aluminium access platform to allow scaffolders to safely erect and dismantle scaffolding. Usable at any point along the guardrail, the Alto Scaffmate provides a convenient, secure, slip-resistant hop-up platform position that gives additional reach to help install or remove scaffolding.
Manufactured in the UK and weighing less than 7 kg, the Alto Scaffmate range represents the optimum solution for scaffolders seeking a safe, cost effective, multi-height step-up device.
The Alto Scaffmate is available in 2 configurations. Scaffmate One is a single, fixed height platform option that connects to the 1.0m guardrail tube using quick release auto-latch brace hooks that lock onto the scaffold tube and prevent unintentional removal. The Scaffmate Duo is a 2-positioned platform unit that can connect to both the 0.5m and 1.0m guardrail tubes.
Both units have the 50mm height adjustment on the legs and swivel feet to cope with ground irregularities. The platform is made from slip resistant aluminium with a generous 540mm x 405mm area giving a safe working platform. Both Scaffmate versions automatically latch in the open and closed positions for secured use and easy transportation. The Scaffmate Duo has a folding ladder section that latches up into a safe, parked position when being used as 0.5m step.
The Alto Scaffmate is a scaffolders step as outlined in SG4-15 section 3.2.1 providing protection for the scaffolder working with tube and fitting as well as all systems using tubular ledgers. Always use with compliant personal fall protection system.
The feet at the bottom of the Scaffmate are height adjustable by 50mm to accommodate varying guardrail heights, and together with a non-slip working surface, provides the scaffolder with a safe working platform.
All deployment and removal actions use automatic spring loaded locking devices both at brace hooks and hinges to secure the Scaffmate safely in position.
The revolutionary Scaffmate Duo gives the scaffolder 450/500mm and 950/1000mm step up height eliminating the need to carry two items of equipment. Less to carry, less to transport, less cost.
Corrosion resistant aluminium ladders and platforms make the Alto Scaffmate a lightweight yet durable tool for the working scaffolder. Steel components are also bright zinc plated for corrosion resistance.
