Several days ago, Prime Steel Pipe shared the brief introduction of scaffolding pipe, I believed that those people who saw that article must have a basic understanding to scaffolding pipe. Today, Prime Steel Pipe will continue to share some information of that, its advantages and disadvantages will be listed below.


Advantages of scaffolding pipe:


1) Bearing capacity is large. When the scaffolding geometry and construction in line with the relevant requirements of the specification, under normal circumstances, the capacity that single tube of scaffolding can bear will reach up to 15kN ~ 35kN (1.5tf ~ 3.5tf, design).
2) Easy assembly and disassembly, erection flexible. As the length of the pipe is easy to adjust, fastener connection is simple, thus it can be adapted to a variety of flat, facade buildings and structures with scaffolding.
3) More economical. Processing is simple, primary investment costs is low; if carefully designing scaffold geometry, paying attention to improve the use of steel pipe turnover, the amount of material can also achieve better economic results. The amount of steel in the building per square meter of fastener steel pipe frame equivalent is about 15 kg.


Disadvantages of scaffolding pipe:


1) Fasteners (especially its screw) are easy to lose;
2) The bar at the node for the eccentric connection, by the anti-slip force transmission load and internal force, thus reducing its carrying capacity;
3) The connection quality of the fastener joint is significantly affected by the quality of the fastener itself and the operation of the worker.
