Ritzglas® Insulating Modular Scaffold is essential for the performance of hot line work on high and extra-high voltage systems, mainly in substations.

The new Scaffold with Insulating Fittings is provided with modules that are interchangeable with the aluminum fitting modules.

ADVANTAGES
- Lighter weight modules
- Easier assembly
- Insulating components are immune to Corona Effect

The Insulating Scaffold provides for safe and comfortable positioning and access to necessary heights, especially in confined spaces such as substations. This equipment fostered the development of a large number of hot line works, extensively performed by the Hot stick or Bare-hand Methods.

Built with light-weight and interchangeable fittings, the Insulated Modular Scaffold can be easily and quickly assembled by only two linemen, without any additional tools.

Its structure is built with Ritzglas® insulating poles, which electrical and mechanical characteristics are according to IEC-60855 and ASTM F 711 Standards requirements. Its platform boards are made of fiberglass, therefore, the insulating scaffold can be used on energized systems up to 800 kV, with total guarantee of electrical insulation and rated working load of up to 300 daN (660 lb), applied to the center of the platform.
