System scaffolding offers an easy-to-use, quick-to-set-up solution that’s far safer than many other options. This hassle-free scaffolding system incorporates a fall prevention methodology, versatile design functionality, and a lightweight footprint. Discover the value our system scaffolding will offer your next job site or project.
About System Scaffolding
Also known as modular scaffolding, system scaffolding consists of standards, ledgers, pre-engineered joints, and transoms. It’s considered much safer because it can accommodate tall buildings, complex design structures, and greater load capacities.
There are four basic system scaffolding types:
Advantages of System Scaffolding
OCTO system scaffolding is the industry-preferred scaffolding solution. It’s superior to older, less customizable products because it’s stronger, safer, and more versatile. It is also cost-effective and requires a smaller storage area at job sites.
With OCTO system scaffolding, you:
- Save money by using 50% fewer pieces.
- Enjoy faster and easier scaffolding setup.
- Spend less on transporting and storing materials.
- Bear more weight safely at higher heights.
- Create a scaffolding frame setup with complex custom dimensions.
- Enjoy the security that comes with using the industry’s safest scaffolding.
No matter your job, system scaffolding is up to it. Whether repairing a large ship, carefully restoring a 300-year-old building, or painting a hospital tower, the answer is system scaffolding.
How System Scaffolding Works
Unlike older frame-type scaffolding with two legs rigidly connected, system scaffolding is a modular, more flexible designed scaffolding product. Each OCTO system connection point is held together with an infallible locking safety mechanism that gets tighter with use, not looser making OCTO a far safer scaffolding system.
These adaptable design features allow for the perfect fit for each unique job, application or project. Our OCTO system scaffolding solutions will create a solid foundation for work around complex structures while maximizing users’ safety and productivity.

Safety & Fall Prevention With System Scaffolding
Our Company’s dedicated safety culture is one of several reasons why we recommend system scaffolding over other products.
OCTO system scaffolding is inherently safer because it’s more stable than other scaffolding options. You can expect leg loads of up to eight metric tons, higher height capability, and structure for falsework applications.
The components are also designed to be stronger and more easily handled. Locking mechanisms tighten with use, and the daily OSHA-required safety inspection is simple and easy.
These factors play a significant role in reducing potential trips, hazards, and gaps. Additionally, the erection process complies fully with Work at Height Regulations. And the use of GuardAid®, a scaffold positional tool, reduces the chance of falling from height.
With these safeguards in place, you can rest assured that you’re not putting your crew at risk.
The Superiority of OCTO® System Scaffolding
While there are other options available for system scaffolding, we prefer and use OCTO® because it’s safer and more versatile. This scaffolding system’s versatility comes from the 360° joint connection, which makes OCTO® ideal for various industries.
Clients with tight deadlines trust us to safely and quickly erect their scaffolding. The OCTO® system design uses far fewer components required to assemble a scaffolding structure. With fewer components comes less weight, meaning we can erect your scaffolding and dismantle it much quicker than competitors.
OCTO® scaffolding has been used in construction, industrial, aviation, and marine markets for over 100 years. The system has been continually tried, tested, and improved over this time to increase versatility, safety, and productivity.
For these reasons, we trust OCTO® scaffolding for our customers.
