Part 23 Scaffolds and Temporary Work Platforms

Section 333 Double-pole scaffolds

This type of scaffold is supported from the base by a double row of uprights, independent of support from the walls and constructed of uprights, ledgers, horizontal platform bearers and diagonal bracing. Figure 23.8 shows a typical double-pole scaffold. Readers should compare this design of scaffold to the single-pole scaffold shown in the Figure 23.15.
