New system scaffolding lands in the UK


Generation Hire & Sale, supplier of access and safety products to the UK construction market, has secured its status as sole distributor of the German produced ALTRAD Futuro multi-directional modular scaffold system. ALTRAD Futuro is the perfect system for industrial and civil engineering, where adaptable heavy-duty scaffolding systems are especially important. ALTRAD Futuro is a scaffold system for the future, as it gives the owner the peace of mind that they have invested in a system scaffold that has been manufactured to the highest standards. From its own factory based in Germany the whole process is controlled from start to finish with continued testing in all parts of the process.

Advanced Functionality

Managing Director Mark Clifford commented “The key to the success of ALTRAD Futuro in industrial applications is the tension – optimised socket plate, which contains 8 specially formed openings capable of taking up to eight ledgers / diagonals. Because of the way the openings are formed, virtually any angle can be set. As a result, ALTRAD Futuro scaffolding can be erected even in areas where access is restricted.”
Manufactured and tested to the highest standards the system complies with latest European standards. ALTRAD Futuro has also been audited by the NASC and has met the criteria to satisfy the NASC Code of Practice for proprietary System Scaffold.

Hassle-Free Construction

Scaffolds are built using multi boarded levels reducing the need for ledgers as the steel boards form an integral part of the structure thus saving material, weight and labour, making the system one of the quickest to erect and dismantle in a safe manner.
Typical Applications
Extensively used in Europe, the ALTRAD Futuro system is described as a fast, safe and economical solution, suitable for industrial, marine, offshore, petrochemical and general construction.
