Scaffold Roof

A scaffold roof is a temporary structure that is typically used to erect a safe working platform shelter that allows workers to access the upper part of a building and perform tasks while being protected from the elements. Scaffolding roofs are designed to ensure the safety and efficiency of construction projects.

Components of Scaffold Roof

Eave Spigot

Positioned within the top chord of the UNIT Beam at the eaves and fixed in position with a Quick Release Pin, this component tensions the sheet tracks and has location sockets for the Roller Brace.

Rail Beam

A galvanised steel H-Beam with a tube runner welded to the top flange. Attached to the support scaffold with Boltless Girder Clamps, these components provide support for the rolling castor assembly.

Roller Braces

Links adjacent beam lines (trusses) at the ridge and at eaves level. End hooks locate corresponding sockets on Ridge / Eaves Beam.

Ratchet Strap

Used in conjunction with the Sheet Tension Bars, ratchet straps secure and tension the roof sheet to the supporting structure at the eaves.

Beam Spigots

A four hole spigot used, in conjunction with 12mm quick release pins (or M12 x 60 Bolts and nuts), to connect differing lengths of Unit  Beams, Ridge Beams and Eaves Beams to one another. 

Diagonal Brace

The brace is attached diagonally between the top of the vertical posts of the unit beams at the position of the brace frames. Ends include a special claw casting, facing opposing directions.

Scaffold Roof Sheeting

650gsm flame retardant sheeting, with Keder beading to both the left and right hand edges, for location into the sheet tracks. Pockets are positioned at each end to receive the Sheet Tension Bars.

Rail Beam Wheel

Sits on top of the Rail Beams to allow the roof structure to be rolled out. Castors are linked with scaffold tube and have locking nuts to prevent movement when roof is in final position.

Rail Beam End

One of these closers is used at each end of a length of Runway Beams, they prevent the castors from rolling off the track. They are attached with two M16 x 40mm hex bolts, washers and hex nuts.

Ridge Beam with Track

The Ridge beam track is an aluminum profile, no need bolt fixing. The 36 degree high pitched roof is snow rated, whereas the 18 degree is used to protect from heavy rainfall. 

Sheet Pulling Bar Assembly
Pulling Bar Assembly

Inserted through the Sheet Tension Bar at one side of the sheet, the nylon wheels of the assembly are positioned on top of the Sheet Tracks at either side, guiding the sheet smoothly over the roof.

Spring Pin

These special M12x70mm Quick Release Pins are used to fix the Spigots to the unit beam and the ridges.

Laser Cutting Scaffold Roof Tarp

Our scaffold roof tarpaulins are processed by laser cutting, which is not only more accurate but also more efficient, which can greatly increase productivity and reduce costs.

Moreover, our laser cut tarpaulins are specially treated to be UV, corrosion, and aging-resistant. You don’t have to worry about the tarpaulin fading, becoming brittle, or losing its performance in long-term use. Our tarpaulins will provide long-lasting, stable waterproofing for your building, leaving you worry-free.


High Quality Scaffold Roof

High Grammage: The use of PVC tarpaulin with a weight of 650g/m2 or 850g/m2 ensures excellent waterproofing. It blocks the intrusion of rain and moisture and protects the interior of the building from water vapor.

Flame retardant: It complies with DIN 4102 fire class B1. This means that in the event of a fire, it reduces the risk of fire spreading, providing security for your life and property.

Customized: APAC offers heavy-duty industrial scaffold roof sheets designed to accommodate temporary roofing systems. Standard sheets are made in 5m length increments, and any length of the sheet can be made to order.

Perfect Packing Scaffold Roof Sheeting

Our sheets are professionally packed to ensure their integrity during transport and storage. Firstly, we will fold the sheet, and then we will secure it with specialized tarpaulin packing tape to ensure that it does not fall apart during transport. In addition, we will place the packed sheet in a tarpaulin bag to further protect the tarpaulin from moisture and contamination. This professional packing method not only ensures the quality of the sheet but also improves the convenience of transport and storage.

Applications of Scaffold Roof

A scaffold roof is usually used in conjunction with scaffolding to prevent weather-related delays and to provide temporary shelter for workers, mostly in rainy and snowy areas.
