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
