WIDE RANGE OF ACCESSORIES

Sidewalk frames, debris retainers, console brackets, lattice beams and multi-purpose decks.

Catari FA-48®

Catari FA-48® is a frame scaffold with slide-in fittings that grant a fast, simple and effective assembly.
The range of accessories ensures an easy adaptation to every façade configuration and even further scaffolding applications.

SAFETY COMES EASY USING CATARI FA-48® FRAMES

While the gravity pins of the frames ensure that guardrails and diagonals are fastened with a single push, the built-in spigots grant their correct setting in the upright. Once stacked, the upper frames automatically prevent the decks against accidental lifting or tilting.

QUICK ASSEMBLY

To increase the length of the scaffold, add new frames and connect them with guardrails; to increase the height, stack additional frames on the top of the existing ones; diagonal braces and decks will grant the rigidity of the scaffold, waiving the use of ledgers.

FURTHER EXPLORING

The use of special frames, console brackets, adjustable guardrails and toe boards, castor wheels, lattice beams, slim and corner decks, enhance scaffolding on complex façades, such as circular line-ups, corniches, balconies, porches, building corners or protruding façades.

Stair towers can be assembled for an ampler access, using the standard components and pre-assembled stairways elements.

Façade scaffold

Either in a residential context, single or multi-family houses, or even in a commercial or industrial context, Catari FA-48® is an option for bricklaying, masonry, plastering, painting or cladding works.
It is a certified steel scaffolding that offers its users simplified safety, easy handling and unbeatable speed of assembly.

Expanded work areas

The use of console brackets and lattice beams allows the extension of the working area beyond the standard line-up.

Corners

Connection and angular decks ensure a safe corridor on corners as well as the possibility of assembling circular scaffold. Telescopic toeboards and guardrails adapt to the available size between frames, thus ensuring a safe perimeter.

Stairways

When a wider access is required on-site, a stairway can be quickly integrated into an existing scaffold or set-up as a stand-alone access structure.

Safety during assembly

Advanced guardrails or temporary guardrails can be used to carry on the assembly from the level beneath, as a complementary protection for scaffolders.

Special frames

Assembly frames, with either reduced height or width, are useful for overcoming constraints such as slopes or balconies, without changing the line-up of the scaffold.

mobile scaffolding

Castor wheels

Mobile scaffold can be an option for sequential works. The twin breaks assure the safety of the structure while parked.

Catari US® compatible

Catari US® and FA-48® core components have a matching grid-size, which benefits scaffolding on complex structures.

Anchoring options

Against load-resistant walls, lattice ties can be used to suspend the scaffold, rather than support it on the ground. In reverse, adjustable stabilisers are an option against windows or glass walls.

Scaffold project design

Erecting a scaffold in multi-storey buildings or even in single-family houses can be challenging due to the on-site constraints. To overcome these limitations, the engineering team of Catari develops tailor-made solutions using 3D modeling and scaffold structural analysis software, which lead to a detailed identification of commissioning quantities and an improved visualization of the final solution.

Reference applications

façade scaffolding

Building construction

Rebar works, formwork assembly and façade cladding

The same scaffold was used for the rebar and the formwork assembly, as well as for the façade works that came afterwards.

  • Scaffold system: Catari FA-48®
  • Highlights: façade scaffold, rebar scaffold
birdcage scaffolding for ceiling works

Ceiling works

Birdcage scaffolding, domes

The compatibility with Catari US® allowed the scaffolding to be assembled under a complex dome for ceiling restorations.

  • Scaffold system: Catari FA-48® + Catari US®
  • Highlights: vaulted ceiling, bridging ledgers
Scaffolding beams, scaffold lattice beams

Protruding façades

Balconies, pitched roofs, attics, cornices, dormer windows

Lattice beams were used to erect a cantilever scaffold over the dormer window.
For an enhanced safety of the scaffold crew, advanced guardrails were assembled from below.

  • Highlights: dormer window, advanced guardrails
industrial scaffolding for tanks or silos

Working on tanks

Circular façade, industrial construction, tanks

Angular decks were used in between the frames to ensure a continuous working corridor outside the tank, whereas the stairway placed adjacent to the scaffold guaranteed that the circulation upwards and downwards was done in safety and without interfering with the works in progress.

  • Scaffold system: Catari FA-48®
  • Highlights: angular decks, aluminium staircases

The staircases were placed in alternate directions to grant workers a shorter access to the roof. Ready-to-use safety accessories such as handrails and a guardrail for egress, granted that the side protection was settled quickly and without wasting time using tube and couplers.
