As a business, we pride ourselves on answering construction industry issues before they’ve even been realised. Our MD said the following on his reasons behind designing this product:

“Preventing unauthorised access to scaffolding on construction sites is crucial, this could be due to the scaffolding being incomplete or even locking of sections or lifts where certain types of work are being carried and the area needs to be restricted.

“Another major problem we come across is unauthorised access by members of the public, clients and contractors have a responsibility to ensure that unauthorised access onto scaffolding is prevented, not just outside working hours, but also at times when workers are present but unauthorised to work in these areas.

“I’ve been on sites with up to 100 live scaffolds all with different padlocks and keys and then we evolved to using combination padlocks, even with this change it was a huge pain point for many site managers and difficult to administrate and that’s one of the main issues I looked to solve when designing our scaffold ladder guard, to solve a problem we are all encountering daily.”
