The kwikstage galvanised diagonal braces fit into the outside “V” section on the kwikstage scaffold standard.
As a result, the scaffolding resists lateral movement. However, in certain circumstances, over 4 metres, either outriggers or tying into a structure shall be required. Installation is always diagonally across the full width of the scaffold at every 3rd bay. Diagonal braces form an integral part of the structure, and without diagonal braces, scaffolding is significantly weaker and may collapse.
