The HAKI Beam Rider is the key component which makes the HAKI Universal System so adaptable and versatile.
Beam riders enable off-node connections removing the need for additional support legs. This is useful when creating returns, building scaffolding around challenging structures or to fit around piping and ducting. The beam riders can also be used to create supports when using scaffold boards with the system. When using the beam riders, ledgers and transoms can be fitted at right angles to one another anywhere in the scaffolding. In addition to this adaptability, there is also an increase in productivity as fewer components are required and larger bay sizes can be utilized. Made of steel, beam riders can be used in both the HAKI Universal galvanized steel and HAKI Universal aluminum systems. The Beam Riders are mounted on the ledgers or transoms. Tighten the locking screws by hand. Hook a ledger or transom into the pockets of the beam riders and lock it. Always check the permissible load on the loadbearing ledger or transom.
