Kwikstage scaffolding System

Kwikstage is a kind of modular scaffolding system that is used for several purposes. Kwikstage is considered the most efficient form of scaffolding and is mainly designed for shoring floors and bays and is used both in construction and formwork. This is because it allows the scaffolders to safely change their shape according to the ongoing project. This type of scaffolding can either be set up in the front or back of the building without much strain, making it a popular method.

Scaffolding components

A kwikstage scaffolding system is made of several single components that can be assembled to fit the construction project. The components of the scaffolding include:


A ledger is a horizontal tube that connects the standards. The ledgers may range in size, and come in the following sizes: 600, 900, 1000, 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500, and 3000.

Basic jack

The basic jack is placed at the bottom of the scaffolding structure to help keep it stable. This part is known to serve as the basic foundation of the scaffolding structure.


Also referred to as uprights, kwikstage standards refer to vertical tubes used to support the weight of the entire scaffolding structure. They are available in different sizes including 500,1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, 3500.
