Horizontals on 2'6" & 4' frames, braces & handrails - 31.8 mm
Horizontals on 6' x 4' frames & braces - 38.1 mm

31.8 mm o.d. tube is 18 gauge (1.2 mm)
38.1 mm o.d. tube is 16 gauge (1.6 mm)


We have invested many thousands of pounds in Hi-Tech machinery to put a swage on our tower leg, which means you have close contact all round the tube and for the whole length of the swage where the frames join thus making it a much more sturdy tower. It is quicker to erect and dismantle because you don't need any tools and there is nothing to seize up due to corrosion.

The end result being our scaffold towers are simpler, quicker and safer to use for the whole of their life.

A comprehensive range of accessories complement the Economy Tower system giving total flexibility including Stabilisers (which come apart for easy transportation), internal ladders, trapdoor decking, adjustable double locking castors, adjustable bases, double locking castors and cantilever legs.


Locking pins found on many cheaper towers are awkward to operate and inconvenient (there are two locking pins per frame making it longer to erect and dismantle), some need a spanner and they are prone to seizing up due to corrosion rendering them useless thus making cheap towers very dangerous.

Locking pins are supposed to reduce the amount of play or movement created by a loose fitting type socket when joining the frames of a cheap tower. The locking pin is hand tightened forcing the leg of the upper frame against the side of the wall of the welded socket of the frame below

1). This means there will be a strong possibility that excessive movement will be experienced on the tower especially when the tower is erected to higher levels. The pins cannot be over tightened as this may cause the tube to squash inside the socket.
