In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the NASC has published new guidance to improve safety on site during scaffolding operations. One of the recommendations is the use of Gin Wheels to eliminate operative contact when passing materials up the scaffold.

A Gin Wheel allows site operatives to keep two metres apart whilst transferring materials from ground level up the structure, providing a simple and cost-effective means to maintaining social distancing on site.

The Gin Wheel is hung from the top of the scaffold and a rope is operated from the ground floor to take material up to the working level using either a lifting sack or bucket for fittings or a knot the boy scouts would be proud of for tube.

In order to provide an additional level of safety, we can also supply a Gin Wheel fitted with an integral brake, as this feature automatically engages if the rope picks up speed to the point an accident or drop is possible.

Matched up with a long-lasting and durable leather 40g lifting bucket and rope custom fitted with a prefixed steel hook the set up is made even safer and quicker to use as knots are eliminated.

This way of working provides us with a simple solution to maintain the level of social distancing on site, in accordance with NASC guidelines.

We have a large stock that’s tested, maintained and ready to go.
