What is the maximum load of the platform?
Custers® scaffolding always has a load of 200 kg/m2 (class 3), evenly distributed over the platform. This means that a platform measuring 2.5 metres has a maximum load of 300 kg.
How many outriggers must I use?
With freestanding use four outriggers must be installed. When positioned against a wall, two outriggers are sufficient.

Why is Custers® scaffolding not compatible with other scaffolding?
This is due to the fact that Custers® scaffolding has a more robust wall-thickness (2.3 mm) and it has 8-rungs frames instead of 7-rungs frames.
Our configuration makes it possible to construct a scaffolding with fewer diagonals, which provides more free working space than other systems.
Why does Custers use only 2 diagonals (1 cross) in each section instead of 4 diagonals?
Because of the greater thickness of the walls of the tubes used, fewer crosses are needed. This gives you more free working space.
What is the difference between Handy/Heavy Duty and Corona?
The most significant difference is in the way the product is produced: the Corona has a less sophisticated platform-design and has a much shorter welding time. The Corona scaffolding is equipped with lower priced, lower load-capacity wheels and with fewer stickers than the Handy scaffolding. The wood in the Corona-platform has the same quality as the wood of the Handy-platform.
What is the yellow claw-block colouring for?
This is what is known as the horizontal-diagonal positioned at the bottom of the scaffolding. This brace ensures that the scaffolding is always set up at right angles and it limits the torsion of the scaffolding, which means that a more stable working space is formed. When moving the scaffolding, the construction is also put under less pressure if one of the wheels bumps into something.
Can Custers® mobile scaffolding be repaired?
Yes; you can send the parts of your scaffolding to Custers for repair. This means that it is, for example, possible to replace a broken rung. You can easily repair minor matters such as damaged claw-block and trapdoor tapes yourself.
Is Custers® mobile scaffolding certified?
Yes. Custers® mobile scaffolding complies with the relevant European norms and is certified by the TÜV.
Does my scaffolding have to be inspected?
As applies to all climbing equipment, it is important to have your scaffolding inspected periodically by an expert inspector. This is established in the Health and Safety legislation. Of course, you should always watch out for damages, dents and cracks. In practice, many users have their scaffolding inspected once a year.
