Symons junior frames are recommended for platform heights up to 40 feet and loads of 25 pounds per square foot. Lateral support should be provided when heights exceed 16 feet.
Low cost and lightweight, easy handling make these junior frames well suited to the needs of painters, plasters, carpenters and industrial and institutional maintenance personnel. Junior frames are not designed for either shoring or material storage.
Symons Horizontal Bracing
May be used as guard rails and in some applications as as replacement for cross braces, but are generally used to provide additional stability on erected towers. Constructed of 12” O.D. tubular steel with .076” sidewall, all horizontal braces are interchangeable with Symons standard scaffolding.
Symons Junior Adjustable Screw Jack
Allows finer adjustment in height – up to 12 inches – to level frames and obtain fractional – foot adjustments. This adjustable jack will fit over either the junior base plate or the junior wheel caster.
Symons Junior Base Plates
Distributes leg load over a 6” x 6” bearing area, providing affirm footing and protecting frame leg. Two holes permit convenient nailing to wood sill. Junior Base Plates may be used with or without the junior adjustable screw jacks.
Symons Junior Wheel Casters
Are easily substituted for base frames whenever rolling scaffolding is required. Equipped with a foot lever brake that locks the wheel and swiveling action into place, the junior wheel casters can also be used with junior adjustable screw jacks to assemble rolling towers per local codes and rule “N” of the scaffolding and shoring institute’s scaffolding safety rules. The 5” diameter, rubber wheel junior casters are rated with a safety factor of 4 to 1 for an allowable rolling load of 500 pounds per caster. Ball bearing wheels provide smooth, easy rolling action in just about any light scaffolding application.
