NASC Releases TG20:13 Update
22nd September 2014
An upgraded version of the TG20:13 eGuide
(Note – the supplement should be used in conjunction with version 1.1 of the eGuide software).
The enhancements to the new version of the package are summarised thus: –
- In addition to the standard 48.3mm Type 4 galvanised tube, compliance sheets are now available for BS EN 10219-1, 3.2mm thick high tensile galvanised steel tubes. Supplement 1 provides detail on the background to this improvement and considerations when using mixed tube stock.
- The inclusion of sheeted scaffolds, constructed with TG20:13 compliant transom units. (These did not form part of version 1 of the software).
- TG20 compliance sheets are now available for tied independent scaffolding and tied towers that are 2.0m, 3.0m or 4.0m tall;
- Minor modifications to Compliance Sheets, including clarification on when it is acceptable to tie to the inner face of a scaffold only and a note that illustrations are intended to enhance understanding of design criteria and that they should not be viewed as design drawings per se.
