Scaffold design drawings
All Scaftec scaffold design drawings are produced using AutoCAD computer aided design software. All necessary plan layouts, elevations, sections and details are included. Drawings can be issued as follows:
Paper copies: from A4 sketches to A0 prints, Electronic copies: generally in PDF format, which can be viewed without purchasing any proprietary software; drawings can also be issued in AutoCAD .dwg/.dwf/.dxf format if necessary. Drawings can be produced as part of the design package, as details for discussions / meetings and for client / contractors tender presentation proposals.

Scaffold design checks and inspections
Scaftec can provide a full inspection and checking service to all our clients. The resources at our disposal allow use to be on site at short notice throughout the UK and Internationally. We can check a built scaffold prior to handover or inspecting specialist scaffolds periodically during the period of use; we can provide the expertise to help you deliver a quality service. Where required we can issue certificates to validate your scaffold providing proof that it is built in accordance with the design or in accordance with appropriate codes of practice.

Structural Analysis
Scaftec provide calculations to substantiate every design. This can range from hand calculations (to check the feasibility of a proposal) to fully computer-produced calculations (to accompany working drawings). For larger or more complex designs (such as temporary roofs and/or large, free-standing, sheeted scaffolds) the frame analysis packages S-Frame and Scia Engineer are used:
