Safety is a priority and G-DECK has been subjected to stringent testing and analysis to prove its load carrying capabilities. Both proven on house building and construction sites G-DECK STANDARD is the system of choice for the working platform market.
The G-DECK STANDARD load deck system is a flexible access decking system designed to meet a variety of end user needs. The system provides an integrated working platform with handrail option; this can be erected at a range of heights from 0.8m up to 5m. The deck has been shown to accommodate imposed loads up to 6kN/ m2 or 600 Kg/ m2 which provides for a wide range of uses on site.
With options such as handrails, spring access gates, and being self-supporting, the G-DECK STANDARD system really is a market leader in innovation.
G-DECK STANDARD is the only system in the market that has been drop tested, G-DECK withheld a drop from 3m with 150kg.
The corrosion protection system enhances durability and enables G-DECK to withstand the weather, providing an extended service life without any reduction in its strength.
G-Deck has been assessed in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 12811-1:2003 and BS EN 13374:2013, and materials used throughout the system comply with the requirements of BS EN 12811-2:2004. G-Deck has passed a rigorous physical testing regime specified by independent engineers and undertaken at a UKAS accredited laboratory.
G-DECK has been proven to be capable of accommodating a uniformly distributed load of 6Kn/m2 at a platform height of 1.8m or 2Kn at 5m. Through calculation and physical testing it has met the requirements of the following European design standards when used in accordance with this guide: BS EN 12811-1:2003 Load Class 3 at a platform height of 1.8m or 5m, BS EN 12811-1:2003 Edge Protection Requirements, BS EN 13374:2013 Barrier Class A.
Our LITE system was developed to offer a stronger, more rigid, faster and budget conscious alternative to plastic decking.
Our LITE system was developed to offer a stronger more rigid budget alternative to plastic decking. The system has been designed for companies that just need a work on/walk on platform and do not need a lot of load bearing.
Still sticking with our trademark metal decks, for the legs we developed the strength in them by adding a metal inner for stability; our Lite system has already been a great success in areas such as pre fabrication houses and other trades such as carpentry and electricians.
The G-DECK LITE system is a safety platform designed to meet a variety of end user needs. The system provides a walk on/ working platform; this can be erected up to a height of 3.0m. The deck has been shown to accommodate imposed loads up to 200 Kg per m2 which provides for a wide range of uses on site.
The deck can be erected by using a simple mallet by a two man team at a rate of up to 100 square metres per hour. Critical components positively lock into place for maximum safety and security.
G-DECK LITE is the only system in the market that has been drop tested, G-DECK LITE withheld a drop from 2m with 100kg.
Compared to market alternatives our components are lighter, easier to move and transport and in a typical stillage can store twice the amount of components in whether they are decks or legs to competitors.
G-DECK Lite was loaded incrementally to a SLS loading of 2Kn/m2 as agreed with the manufacturer. The allowable displacement was set at L/100 (10mm) in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 12811-1:2003.

LDS Hire & Sales Limited are proud to announce our latest system launch called DUAL.
DUAL is a true hybrid system that is designed for scaffold companies in mind that enables existing birdcage equipment to be re-used such as scaffold tubes & fittings together with our DUAL brackets and G-DECK decks to create a best of breed working platform and give huge savings on purchase costs.
Our brackets are designed to fit perfectly over the tube to create the leg that the decks sit on. Tubes can also be fitted at the top of the bracket that allows a further tube run so things such handrails can be created with ease.
You can brace the legs if needed by using standard tube and fittings.
We always advise to add props to joists underneath if using DUAL is being used on first & second floors.
DUAL is tested to BSEN 12811

Certified to British Standard BSEN12811 CLASS 4.
1250mm x 750mm footprint and colour but can be tailored for specific requirements.
Chequer plate hatch covers for better grip above.
Combo locks – saves time finding keys for padlocks, sites can have the same individual combo on all.
Man hatch – Cannot be left open as self closes (a must for hatches as prevents drop in’s)
Can easily fit under any decking system.
Quick and easy to install.
It comes with three hinged access hatches. The first is for the ladder, the second is for a person to access up or down and the third letterbox style hatch is for allowing any decking system to be passed up or down without any fall arrest from above.

G-DECK tower is a self-supporting structure which uses the same components as used in its trestle and working platform. It can be utilised for areas such as boundary walls, gable ends and for places that need tradespeople to work at a higher height. The tower can be erected with ease and can go up to 3.4m in height making it very versatile for hard to reach areas.

The G-Deck trestle system forms part of our main G-DECK system. We wanted to design a system that could be both a trestle initially for low level builds and then with ease use the same components to create a crash deck platform, this was with a view to saving our users money who needed both.
Compared to most systems which are one or the other, our system can be used at low level course for building up starting at a deck height starting at 0.8m and options to extend up when needed. With additional components such as handrails, cross braces and toe boards, our trestle system is very secure and easy to erect.
Then once you have completed the low level, you use the same components to then build out your crash deck working platform.
