Installation process

As with other INTAKS configurations, install follows an orderly, sequential and easy to complete process:

  1. Lay out Soleboards and Screwjacks where Standards are required.
  2. Configure support frames for the bottom platform with tool-less Transom and Standards.
  3. Build first bracing bay.
  4. Install remaining support frames.
  5. Install platform with Interlocking Planks.
  6. Install Handrails using tool-less Spring Clip mechanism.
  7. Install Toeboards using tool-less Toeboard Plank Clips.
  8. Configure and install Standards and Transoms for the next level.
  9. Install Interlocking Planks on next level.
  10. Create Ladder access and install Swing Gate.
  11. Install diagonal face braces, rakers and ties where required.
  12. Install Toeboards on next level.
  13. Complete final checks and handover to site manager.
  14. Dismantle process is the reverse to installation.
