  5. 5. INTRODUCTION1. Compatibility of Excel Modular scaffold Excel scaffold is designed and Engineered to be compatible with standard tube and clamp components (i.e.: Clamps, poles, ladders and ladder brackets) that are currently available within the scaffold industry. These tube and clamp components are generally used for:* Tube and Clamp for tie offs when needed for Seismic Considerations* When needed to transition Horizontally to get around obstacles* When needed to transition Vertically to get around interference* Ladders and ladder brackets for access to work platforms* As needed for structural bracing and reinforcement2. General Erection Criteria Excel was designed and Engineered to be constructed using the same requirements, specified by OSHA and CAL-OSHA, that have been historically used with tube and clamp and other system type scaffolds. Excel expects all users to be familiar with all Federal, State and local regulations governing scaffold construction and use. Excel expects all users to erect, modify or dismantle scaffolding using only qualified and competent personal, with adequate supervision. Excel expects all users to provide supervision that is competent and qualified, that can inspect and sign off on each scaffold before authorization is given for general use. Excel expects all users to follow all common safety guidelines including; pre job briefings, procedure compliance, tagging, flagging, wearing proper PPE, weight loading restrictions, vertical leg placement, use of diagonal bracing, horizontal wraps, proper use of hand rails, midrails, toe boards, safety netting, screw jacks, ladders, metal or wood decking, etc. Excel expects all users to utilize a registered professional engineer (licensed PE) to design and approve drawings as required by OSHA, CAL-OSHA or any other regulatory agency.3. Special Considerations Be extra careful when working with components that telescope. Telescoping components can move/slide while being transported, handled and passed to other workers. Many Excel Scaffold Components swivel, slide or hinge. Use caution when passing to other workers, transporting and installing these items. Insure that all items containing locks or pins are secured before handling, transporting or passing these items to another worker. All material must be inspected prior to use! See Section R for inspection guidelines.
  6. 6. Intended Use of Excel Modular scaffold1) Unless otherwise stated all load data presented in this manual includes the OSHA (4:1) Safety Factor.2) Unless otherwise stated all load data presented in this manual is only for downward or compressive loading.3) Excels scaffold material when constructed for normal use is not designed to be up or side loaded in excess of OSHA and ANSI requirements. When conditions require special loading, extra design features must be added to insure proper stability.4) Once installed and completed scaffold should be considered part of the customers plant equipment. Abuse or mistreatment of the scaffold material should not be tolerated.5) The scaffold material should be inspected for damage and repaired after any incident which could affect the integrity of the scaffold material such as: a. ) The scaffold comes into contact with any moving equipment, forklifts, trucks or trailers and other types of mobile equipment. b. ) The scaffold is affected by an unintended load; flanges or piping attached to a crane or come along, objects dropped from above or swung in from the side, etc. c. ) Excessive force is applied to the scaffold from abuse or accidental contact. d. ) The material is modified in any way with a torch, saw or other equipment. e. ) The material is affected from corrosive chemicals that remove the coating and/or damage the base metal. f. ) The material is bent or otherwise damaged.6) The end user should insure that their competent qualified individuals and scaffold erection personnel are trained and fully understand the above requirements.7) When testing of material is required it should be conducted by qualified personnel in a testing environment. Field testing of scaffold components should not be conducted without a formal test plan approved by the manufacturer. 8) All end users must be trained in the proper use of Excel Modular Scaffold. The tech manual is provided as a reference for training. New users should examine the Thumb Rules at the end of the Manual. 9) OSHA requires that inspections must be made by the scaffold builder and end user.10) All material must be inspected prior to use! See Section R for inspection guidelines.

  11. 11. Excel Modular Horizontal Bar with Trigger Guard & Lacking Latch Excels newest end connectors function exactly the same as the current end connectors. The enhanced design provides a straighter more aligned horizontal that has a better fit to the cup. All loading and performance remains the same. The new end connectors can be used with the existing horizontals. The new end connectors provide several enhanced features which improve scaffold construction and safety. The main feature is the new safety latch which prevents the horizontal from being accidently disconnected. It provides a new level of safety and security. The horizontal is unlatched by raising thebottom trigger to free the latch and pressing down on both triggers to unhook from the cup.The new end connector design allows metal scaffold boards to be placed the full length of thehorizontal.The new horizontals are capped on the top to prevent debris from entering into the trigger lockingmechanism.In seismic or high vibration areas the bottom latching trigger can optionally be fitted with a spring fora double positive locking system. Also a hole is provided below the top trigger where a bolt canbe added that will prevent the end connector from unlatching.EMSLC-TSM-1001 Section: B-1A Revised: 10/22/10

  29. 29. Excel Modular Diagonal Pin BraceThe Excel Modular Diagonal Pin Brace is designed to be a multipurpose brace. Ithas standard swivel clamps on each end so it can be fastened to any scaffoldvertical or horizontal. It also is drilled and fitted so a standard vertical pin (LP1) canbe used to connect two or more braces together. This may be desirable when thereis a need to brace longer structures, up to fourteen feet. These braces are designed to be pinned together using standard vertical locking pins to create longer braces where needed. 14 ft Truss When more than one brace is used, the brace Wire Tie should be tied when possible, in the middle with #9 wire or equivalent to a horizontal, vertical or another diagonal. When braces are connected together the middle clamps may or may not be used.

  31. 31. Excel Modular General Guidelines for Bracing The following bracing recommendations are for all, non-seismic scaffolding, built using Excel scaffold components.Bracing and / or tying should be applied to any scaffold where the top of the scaffold has a movement of morethan 6 inches in any direction. The bracing should be placed to run in opposite directions on opposing sides. Itmay be zig-zagged or run all in the same direction. (See Normal Bracing diagram below.) Bracing under the board deck, attached diagonally from vertical to vertical, should be placed every third deck when possible. Normal Bracing (Plain or zig-Zag) Heavy Duty BracingSingle bay scaffolds should be braced on a minimum of two sides and when feasible on all four sides, startingat the bottom and continuing to a minimum of 10 feet from the top of the scaffold.All other bay configurations require bracing placed on one bay for every 30 feet length of scaffold (Generallyevery 4th bay). At a minimum, bracing should be placed on the inside and outside row of the scaffoldingverticals, starting at the bottom and continuing to a minimum of 10 feet from the top of the scaffold.Scaffolds that contain side brackets or outriggers , where there is a possibility of tipping, must also be bracedor tied, with tube and clamp, a min of 2 strands of #9 wire or equivalent, to plant approved structural steelcomponents (i.e.: I-Beams, Handrails, Grating, etc.) The following additional bracing recommendations are for light duty, non-seismic scaffolding, built using Excel scaffold components.Bay widths of 42 inch and less, that are less than 20 feet tall may not require Bracing. The special truss designof Excel Horizontals provides the necessary bracing. Scaffolds above 20 feet tall should be braced usingclamp braces or tube and clamp applied to the bottom of the scaffold leaving an unbraced height of 20 feet orless. (Bracing should always be added if there is excesive movement of the scaffold structure.)Scaffolds with a deck height less than 10 ft. do not require bracing provided they are tied off, with tube andclamp, 2 strands of #9 wire or equivalent, to plant approved structural steel components (i.e.: I-Beams,Handrails, Grating, etc.). The following additional bracing recommendations are for medium and heavy duty, non-seismic scaffolding, built using Excel scaffold components.Heavy duty scaffolds should have as much bracing as required to meet the desired loading. Bracing and / ortying should be placed on all sides of the scaffold. Multibay scaffolds should have bracing on every other bay,front middle and back rows. (see Heavy duty bracing diagram above.)
