About bushing-type scaffoldings

GBM bushing-type italian scaffoldings are just what you need for a safe scaffolding that is quick and easy to use.

Connection between the frameworks is carried out by means of pipe horizontal ledgers and diagonal braces featuring - at the ends - forged steel pins, which are inserted into bushings (rings) welded onto the uprights of the frames.

GBM bushing-type scaffolding falls within the class of "facade scaffolding” with prefabricated frames. It is obtained by connecting several steel frames with standard height and depth on which the bases and parapets are fixed.

It is the easiest scaffolding to use. Being standardised and quick to assemble and disassemble, it does not require special manpower skills. It comes with the respective documents ("scaffolding instructions booklet").
