The main difference between tube and fitting scaffolding & system is that system scaffolding comes in prefabricated. Even though it is more costly than Tube and fitting scaffolding, it is easier to assemble.
On the other hand, tube and fitting scaffolding require nuts, clamps, and bolts to hold the tubes together when assembling. It is not prefabricated, making it slightly more challenging to assemble than system scaffolding.
Tube and fitting scaffolding is the most common type of scaffold as it has been around for quite some time.
In a nutshell: System vs Tube and Fitting
|System scaffolding||Tube and fitting|
|It is a prefabricated scaffold that does not require nuts or bolts to tighten during assembly||It requires nuts, clamps, and bolts to hold the tubes together when assembling|
|It’s more costly than tube and fitting||It’s an affordable option|
|It is easier to assemble||It’s slightly challenging to assemble because it’s not prefabricated|
