Quick Deploy Scaffolding
NSRP ASE INVESTMENT: $135K
The Team proposes a novel scaffolding system which is delivered to the job-site pre-assembled but in a stowed configuration and which can be rapidly deployed by a pier crane. Deployment is gravity-assisted, whereby the standards are hinged at their center in a scissor-like arrangement and engage the planking through a sliding hinge mechanism located in a channel. As each story deploys sequentially from top to bottom, a self-locking mechanism located in the planking channel holds the supports at the design angle once the overhead crane has been removed.
