Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1031677A2] The invention relates to a scaffolding attachment (54) for scaffolding (34) and to scaffolding (34) including a scaffolding attachment (54). In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the scaffolding attachment (54) forms a ladder with the scaffolding (34). The attachment (54) comprises a ladder portion (56) and left and right locking arms (58, 60). Left and right stiles (62, 64) of the ladder portion (56) have recesses (72), for engaging bracing tubes (50, 52) of a frame section (36) of the scaffolding (34). The locking arms (58, 60) include similar recesses (76), also for engaging the bracing tubes (50, 52). The ladder portion (56) and the locking arms (58, 60) co-operate to engage and surround the bracing tubes (50, 52), and the locking arms (58, 60) are coupled to the stiles (62, 64) by nut and bolt assemblies (70), to lock the scaffolding attachment (54) to the frame section (36) in a releasably tight-fit. Rungs (66, 68) of the ladder portion (56), together with the bracing tubes (50, 52) provide rungs of the ladder. <IMAGE>
