SAFWAY SYSTEMS™ TECHNICAL MANUAL 4/98
CHAPTER B
Introduction Component
Allowable Loads
This chapter contains illustrations and
load ratings for the various Safway
Systems™ Scaffold Components. The load
ratings are based on the capacity of the
individual components only. Refer to
chapter D and warnings at front of manual
before computing the scaffold loads.
Allowable loads specified in this chapter
include safety factors required by Federal
OSHA.
When designing scaffolds with unique
configurations or special loading
conditions, consult with Safway
engineering or a professional structural
engineer familiar with scaffold design
prior to design finalization.

Allowable Tension Loading
2,000 lb.
Post connection (SVP) components
(see exploded view page A-10) are
designed to resist nominal tensile
loads, such as those created by
uplift and/or overturning loads.
NOTE: When suspending
(hanging) scaffold, the coupling
(SCP) must be modified as shown
at right.
Allowable Tension Loading
3,500 lb.
If scaffold is suspended, the
coupling must be modified as
follows:
Remove snap buttons supplied
with the SVP posts and replace
with a 3/8″ - 16 NC x 2-1/4″ lg.
hex. hd. bolt structural grade 5,
3/8″ lock washer and a 3/8″ - 16
NC hex. hd. nut.

The swivel jack should be anchored to
structure surface or restrained. Anchors,
bolts or restraints must resist four times
the shear force determined from chart at
right.
EXAMPLE: Assume a compressive
load (P) of 3200 lb. with a 20° slope.
A corresponding 1200 lb. shear force
must be resisted as indicated by
dotted lines and arrows.
NOTE: Where angle exceeds 45° contact Safway Engineering Department.

CHAPTER D
Introduction Tieing & Bracing
Quantities and location of ties, guys and
braces will vary depending upon the
scaffold size, weight, shape and load
conditions. The following general
guidelines indicate minimum Safway
requirements and are not all inclusive.
When designing scaffolds with unique
configurations or special loading
conditions, consult with Safway
engineering or a professional structural
engineer familiar with scaffold design prior
to design finalization.
When designing a square or rectangular
scaffold, Safway recommends a
horizontal diagonal (SHD) be included in
the base design. This diagonal will aid the
erector in providing a square scaffold as
well as assuring hook on plank and deck
will fit properly.
Safway tube and clamp components may
be substituted for Safway Systems™
Scaffold bracing members or horizontal
diagonal members. When doing so the
load capacity of these components and
their effect on the completed scaffold
must be considered.
Assure ties, stand-offs or guys are located
at runner and bearer levels only.
NOTE: Proper access and platform toeboards are
required on all scaffolds. These items have been
eliminated from the illustrations in this chapter for
clarity purposes only.

Scaffolds with Knee-Out Brackets Bracing & Tieing
Allowable concentrated load for
knee-out brackets (SKO) are shown
on page B-8. Loads in table below
may be used when knee-out
brackets are installed in symmetrical
scaffolds as shown in figure 1 and 2,
and in non-symmetrical scaffolds
when auxiliary bracing is installed to
prevent overturning and racking.
