Scaffold Boards & Trestles

Scaffold Boards and Trestles are essential pieces of equipment when working at height and when you require the ability to work from side to side with ease. Scaffold Boards are extremely strong platforms, up to 6.1m wide and 45cm deep, that can be suspended between secure trestles or rested on other foundations. Scaffold Boards are ideal for any work, such as brick-laying, plastering or painting, that requires rapid, easy sideways movement. Scaffold boards have optional guardrails for higher working and also optional toeboards.

Scaffold boards supplied by Sterk Systems are made by the market leader, Youngman. These boards are certified to the relevant EU and UK standards so you know you are taking care of your staff as well as staying within Health & Safety guidelines.

Scaffold Superboards

Scaffold Superboards are made deeper, up to 60cm, to provide extra stability and room for manoeuvre. They offer more rigidity over a wider working space. Scaffold Superboards feature an aluminium frame with slip resistant plywood decking. Scaffold Superboards can be used with super trestles or any access towers that can accommodate a 60cm deep board.


Trestles are similar to scaffolds but they come with their own made-for-purpose aluminium supports at each end. They are more mobile than bridging systems but are still designed for everyday heavy use. Trestles can be easily adapted for different widths and can support a board height up to 3.5 metres.

Sterk Systems’ trestles are made by Lyte and are certified to UK and EU standards. They are an economical way to provide for working at height when speed and mobility are of the essence. They are completely safe when used in accordance with manufacturers guidelines.

When you use a made-for-purpose Lyte trestle you are showing your workers that you take their health and well-being seriously.
