SCAFFOLDING FITTINGS - DROP-FORGED STEEL

Orchard Hire and Sales sell new scaffold fittings of types that are widely used and approved by scaffolders. They are of a high quality and tested to the relevant British and European standards.

Orchard Hire and Sales also have scaffolding fittings for hire. They are inspected and serviced frequently to ensure that they are reliable on site.

Delivery of scaffolding fittings by lorry or truck is available, typically as part of a mixed load of scaffolding. Small quantities of fittings can be sent in sacks by courier. Larger loads consisting solely of fittings can be delivered on pallets or in crates via our national and international haulage partners.

This page displays the main range of scaffolding fittings. Fittings for prop bracing can be found elsewhere under the heading Formwork & Falsework.
