MAC Universal BrickGuard

About Features Resources Specification & FAQs

MAC Universal BrickGuard

Our revolutionary Brickguard design has been created for use in the construction and scaffolding industry as a result of our frustrations with various Brickguard products over the years. We’ve researched, trialled and tested our Brickguard to ensure we’re offering the best on the market.

About Features Resources Specification & FAQs
Use On All Major Scaffolding Systems
Unique Personalised Branding
Extra Stability & Security

Designed by Scaffolders, For Scaffolders.



The Mac Universal BrickGuard is compatible with all popular system scaffolds, this incudes; Layher, Plettac & Peri Ring System Scaffolds, Haki and Cuplock system scaffolds, and tube and fit scaffolding.

Unique Design

The Mac Universal BrickGuard can be made in any colour and be uniquely manufactured with a clients logo and branding.


The Mac Universal BrickGuard is the only BrickGuard product to bypass the rosette on the ring system scaffold. It also fits securely over the obstacles created when the BrickGuard is fitted to Haki Scaffolding.

Stability and Security

The unique design of the BrickGuard handle provides a robust, durable and secure connection to the handrail, with the ability to be used on any handrail with a diameter between 30mm (Haki, Plettac, advanced guardrail), 48mm (conventional tubular guardrail), and Peri 60mm rectangular ledgers.


Our BrickGuard product provides extra stability in harsh conditions and unrivalled performance in strong winds, compared to other BrickGuard products. This is achieved by the unique design of the handle, coupled with the design of the increased length of the two toe board connectors, increasing the overlapping fit. (This includes System Scaffold at 150mm & Timber Scaffold at 225mm)


Due to the unique design of the MAC Universal BrickGuard, the product can be stacked up to 150 units high on a 1m x 1m pallet space, whilst still maintaining a safe load. This creates up to a 50% improvement on competitor products during transportation, saving on logistic costs and load area.

Reduction In Costs

20% saving on materials used over a 100m run of independent scaffolding when using 2.5m bays with Ring system scaffold, this is due to the brickguards ability to bypass the rosette on scaffolding standards where typical brick guards cannot and 3 components would be required per bay.

  • Mac Brickguards required 100 (1 Per lm)
  • Other Brickguards required 3 per bay total 120

I’d like a quotation for your Macdeck system/products, what are my options?

Our bespoke quotes are based on what service you require. Please see the various options below:

Full Contracting – We provide a full contracting service which includes the supply, hire, installation, and dismantling of the system in one price per m2 for a set time period*. JMAC will manage the allocation and movement of materials on site, leaving all work areas clean and tidy before vacating site. Our trained supervisors will visit site to ensure the standards are maintained. We provide this service within the NE, NW or within one hour of our Stockton On Tees depot. However, we work with a selective group of strategic partners who are based around the UK who can offer the service levels required – Please get in touch and we will recommend the closest one to you.

*Additional hire charges are incurred per week thereafter, should the hire time be exceeded. 

Hire only – We will deliver allocated materials to site specific to your needs. On delivery we will train your workforce/operatives on how to erect and dismantle the Macdeck System safely, and how to store and manage the equipment. A Macdeck certificate is issued once the trainer has evaluated competency levels. Price will be based on a weekly hire rate per m2 and we will collect the kit upon project completion.

Labour only** – If you have purchased or hired our Macdeck system, we can provide a labour only option where our fully trained Macdeck installers will attend your site to erect/dismantle and safely store the system.

Hire and Labour** – A set allocation of materials will be delivered to site. On delivery, the hire will commence for the agreed duration. This acts as the hire element of works.

In geographical areas or specialist jobs where JMAC can provide labour, a fixed labour cost will then be agreed to run alongside the hire agreement. This hire/labour option will provide the client with a supply and fit service undertaken by our knowledgeable and experienced install teams.

Purchase – Our Macdeck system is available to purchase either Mac branded or Bespoke branded (with your company logo). Prices are subject to volume, location and minimum order quantities where applicable.

We’re constantly growing and evolving, so we always try to be flexible with our clients – If you would require this service but your location is not listed, please give us a call to see how we may be able to assist with this.

What is the process should JMSS be successful in securing tendered works?

We will attend a pre-start meeting between the client and our experienced operations team. This meeting will discuss your project programme, time frames and needs, you will receive our operations & maintenance manual, RAMS, booking in procedures training manual, and other supporting documentation. Going forward from this, you can then book in your first plots with our operational admin team and our trained installers will attend site as and when required.

How do I use your booking in service for my project?

A specific service is tailored to the needs of each client, you can email or call our office on 01642 563696.

Is there evidence that work has been completed?

Upon each erection and dismantle, a handover certificate is signed by the JMAC installer and a member of the site team. This handover certificate is a legal document to provide proof that, at handover stage, the system is fit for purpose and in safe working order as per manufacturers guidelines. A copy of this handover is retained onsite for their records and a second copy is returned to the office for payment evidence.
