LVL Walkboard Applications
Scaffolding is a temporary structure used throughout construction job sites to support materials and a crew while they repair, clean, or construct bridges and buildings. Their walkboards are made up of either wooden or metal planks.
Wooden scaffold planks are made from several varieties of wood; however, construction-grade lumber should never be used. Even the sturdiest looking construction-grade plank can lead to serious harm to property and people. These boards are rated based on their capacity to handle building load—not on their ability to handle loads from workers and equipment.
Because scaffolding is an integral part of this industry, it’s imperative for walkboards to be safe. Those who regularly work on scaffolding should inspect planks at timed intervals to catch damage early.
Some builders use aluminum walkboards rather than a basic wood option. If the aluminum isn’t high quality, it can lead to disastrous results. Warped aluminum may pose a fall risk or cause workers to be injured by its high surface temperatures. Opting for wooden planks keeps job sites safer, and is more cost effective.
