E-SCAFF was developed in conjunction with scaffolder's who saw an opportunity to create a plank system that would reduce their overall operating costs and make their lives easier. It was developed as an alternative to timber planks for multi-story scaffolding systems and is tested and complies with AS/NZS 1576.1:2010 and AS/NZS 4994.1:2009 Standards. It has been specifically designed to exceed light duty scaffold codes, working load limits and safety requirements. 

E-SCAFF planks are made from UV resistant extra high molecular weight HDPE. Because this material is easy to weld and cut, it is increasingly used as an alternative to steel, stainless steel, aluminium, fiberglass, and wood. The higher molecular weight in this material results in excellent engineering properties.


  • 70% faster to install than standard timber boards on tube and clip systems.*
  • Up to 10-year lifespan versus 5-year average life expectancy of well-maintained standard timber boards. .
  • Up to 75% less maintenance, E-SCAFF does not rot and is easy to clean.
  • Up to 50% more cost effective with reduced weight and storage space required compared with timber planks.
  • 75% lighter than traditional timber planks, E-SCAFF weighs approximately 16 kg compared to approximately 69 kg for four dry timber planks.
  • Improved health and safety. Reduce the amount of weight your scaffolding team lifts by up to 75% (1.8 tonnes) per average house (33 bays).

*All of the above savings are calculated based on a case study comparing E-SCAFF with traditional timber boards on a tube and clip scaffold system and E-SCAFF's 10-year lifespan.
