Scaffolding Fittings

Even a single-storey construction has access requirements, so unless you have a range of tower scaffold equipment to hand then tube and clamp scaffold is what you need. Whether you are a sole trader, are starting up a scaffolding business, or need to expand your stock, then at Wade, we... Read More


Scaffold Tube

Our tube stock starts at 5 feet and ranges through several available lengths, to 21 feet. These scaffold tubes are galvanised, 48.3mm in diameter with a robust wall thickness of 3.2mm.


At Wade, all our scaffold fittings are drop-forged, rust-proof, and British-made to the highest standard to give you confidence, not just in the construction performance, but also in the lifetime performance of the couplers and other items we have available.


Scaffold tubes are easy to lengthen with a sleeve coupler when your standards don’t quite punch up to height or handrails run as long as you want them to.

For all standard ninety-degree connections a double coupler is the go-to fitting. These will likely be the most-used couplers on any scaffold, joining standards to handrails, transoms, and decks.

Our swivel couplers will join tubes at any angle, whether you are bracing a scaffold, or need it to change direction.

Your putlogs, transoms, and ledgers need a sturdy putlog coupler to keep them secure.


A baseplate will help to stabilise a footing for a standard, but the ground below it must be stable and able to carry the overall weight of the scaffold. If the ground has been excavated for foundations and backfilled, ensure it has been properly compacted.

Rakers alone should not be enough to provide confidence in a scaffold’s structure. Make sure it is properly tied into the structure being built.


For tying into steel frame structures you will need a gravlock, or girder clamp.

And when it comes time to board out your working platforms, loading bays, and staging areas, you will need our board clamps.

Other Items

Don’t forget we also have a range of scaffold boards as well as stillages, chutes, nets, and other scaffolding accessories.

Scaffolding can be complicated to assemble safely, so you must know what you are doing and have a minimum level of competence, and perhaps training and experience before you begin. SMEs and other contractors may require proof of training, while small traders and private individuals work at their own risk.

Whatever your situation, the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) has a range of free advice available too.
