TG20:13 on the cusp of being released for general sale..



As the social media promotion of TG20:13  heats up and the announcement of regional NASC seminars, are we in the final week before the anticipated release of this new technical guidance for scaffolding?

The answer to this question is ‘yes’, rumours are many NASC members have already started to receive their one free copy of the guidance. Once on general sale contractors will be able to purchase the full suite from the NASC website at a rumoured cost of £1,000 for the full four-piece TG20:13 ‘suite’.

ScaffMag will have more confirmed details for our readers early next week after attending a NASC conference in London.

So what is going to be included in the awaited suite?

  1.  TG20:13 Operational Guide. A full-colour, brand new, 224-page guide containing detailed practical guidance for most common types of scaffolding supported by structural research and calculation. Guidance is provided for an expanded range of standard structures which includes independent scaffolding, interior birdcages, chimney stack scaffolds, loading bays, ladder-access towers, free-standing towers, lift shaft towers and putlog scaffolding. A NEW range of TG20 ‘compliance sheets’ is included for these structures.
  2.  TG20:13 Design Guide. Intended predominantly for engineers and designers, this 206-page document provides technical data, commentary, and source material for use by competent and suitably qualified scaffold designers in circumstances which are outside the scope of standard solutions provided in the TG20:13 Operational Guide and TG20:13 e-Guide software.
  3. TG20:13 e-Guide. Designed for Mac, PC and tablet use, making it extremely easy to check scaffolds for TG20:13 compliance digitally, with user-friendly software which will facilitate printing and circulation of details of TG20 compliant structures by email. The TG20:13 e-Guide calculates and prints compliance sheets for TG20 compliant scaffolding. It allows TG20 to incorporate a wide range of scaffolding configurations, and calculates safe heights, tie duties and leg loads.
  4. TG20:13 User Guide. A 32-page, full-colour pocket guide in A6 format. This document summarises clearly the requirements for TG20 compliant scaffolding and offers indispensable guidance to the scaffolding operative on-site.
