Scaffolding Outriggers at ScaffoldMart

What is an outrigger? It’s a triangular bracket that clamps to the bottom of a scaffold configuration to increase it’s base dimensions in order to increase the stability of the tower.

OSHA’s federal regulations state that a towers maximum standing height may be no higher than four times it’s minimum base dimension. This means that a tower consisting of 5′ and 7′ sides has a minimum base dimension of 5′, times four is 20′ – that is your maximum allowable standing height.

Use outriggers to extend these minimum dimensions, and provide a stable platform at height that meets regulations.

Local codes may be more strict than federal regulations. Make certain to check with your most local authority to make sure you are meeting your areas safety criteria.
