Scaffolding serves an important purpose in construction. Quality walkboards are essential for providing a safe walking and standing surface on scaffolding. Given the temporary nature of scaffolding, most users opt for less expensive wooden planks over metal planks when purchasing walkboards for scaffolding. Not all wood planks are equal, however. It’s essential to use scaffold-grade lumber that follows OSHA regulations.
Kennison Forest supplies high-quality wooden scaffold planks manufactured in the USA. All scaffolding walkboards distributed by Kennison have been thoroughly tested for safety and compliance with OSHA standards. Contractors and builders have trusted Kennison for more than 30 years as a reliable provider of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) scaffolding planks.
Scaffolding Planks Made in the USA
Kennison Forest is the exclusive distributor of SURE-LAM LVL 2.1E and 2.3E scaffold planks in North America. SURE-LAM 2.1E and 2.3E planks are manufactured in the USA using only the highest quality Douglas Fir veneer. Scaffolding planks made from Douglas Fir offer the strength and durability necessary to safely hold workers and tools. Douglas Fir wooden planks are also ideal for outdoor construction sites because of the material’s resistance to the negative effects of humidity.
SURE-LAM 2.1E and 2.3E walkboards meet all of the necessary standards required by builders and contractors, such as:
- ICBO 1997 Uniform Building Code-Structural LVL
- APA/EWS inspection
- Individual proof testing
Kennison Forest also supplies 2200F machine stress-rated (MSR) 1.8E solid sawn scaffold planks. MSR planks exceed OSHA safety regulations and provide minimal variability between planks for optimal support of people and equipment.
Our American-made planks are available in all standard and custom sizes with custom embossing. We maintain an extensive stock of planks that are ready to ship in support of projects with short lead times.
