DUPLANK

The Premium LVL Scaffold Board Range

DUPLANK (or TOPplank) is a premium LVL Scaffold Board product supplied by Duscaff. 
The boards are manufactured by MLT Ltd; Europe's largest LVL producing facility.


DUPLANK is an engineered wood product with physical and mechanical properties surpassing solid timber and glulam, manufactured from premium European LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber). The structural uniformity of LVL makes it the perfect solution for a safe, lightweight scaffold plank. Each DUPLANK is made by laminating thin veneers together which increases the reliability and strength of the product. 

8 Year Guarantee

Duscaff guarantees a service life of minimum 8 years on the DUPLANK LVL Scaffold Boards if the boards are used appropriately.*

Quality Control and Structural Verification

DUPLANK is manufactured under the procedures of the VTT184/03 certificate and the EN 14374.
Each DUPLANK is individually proof tested to verify the strength of each plank exceeds the bending moment requirements for the working loads set out in the Live Load Duty Category Table 1 below. 

DUPLANK Span and Load Tables

1/60 deflection limit.
Applicable for single span and continuous planks.
UDL calculated with 3 load combinations.
PL calculated with 7 load combinations.
One PL allowed in each span.
UDL = uniformly distributed load.
PL = point load. 

DUPLANK IS A STRONG AND LIGHT LVL SCAFFOLD PLANK 

The structural uniformity of LVL combined with the strict quality control of all processes of manufacture ensures DUPLANK is safe and for purpose as scaffold planking.

The superior technical characteristics of DUPLANK make it ideal for use in place of other LVL scaffold planks and ordinary timber planks. Use of DUPLANK is also advantageous: 

• In the chemical industries and marine applications for corrosive environments.
 

• Where the electrical insulation properties of DUPLANK are another safety advantage.
 

• Where sparks arising from metal on metal contact may present a hazard for safety.
 

• Where the scaffolding layout precludes the use of a modular system. 

DUPLANK FEATURES:

  • Individually proof tested

  • 100% sustainable Russian Spruce and Pine

  • Strong and long lasting

  • Customer specific edge branding

  • Enhanced durability and safety

  • Meets all industry standards

  • Stamped as “scaffold plank”

  • Excellent structural rigidity

• Lightest in weight in it's class

• Perfect for petrochemical and gas industries

• Anti-corrosive chemical properties 

  • Predictable strength

NUMBER OF PLIES AT 38MM THICKNESS

DUPLANK is homogeneous with superior strength properties and is proof-tested to ensure compliance to the OSHA and ANSI A 10.8- 2001 Standards and is stamped accordingly.

Its outstanding technical characteristics is a result of a combination of best quality raw materials, high-tech equipment, and brand new production technologies. To ensure production of best quality LVL we use 1 additional veneer ply for every thickness beginning with 38mm (14 veneer plies instead of 13 for the thickness 38mm and 15 veneer plies instead of 14 for the thickness 42mm with every single veneer thickness of 3mm).
