Discover our know-how in the manufacture of scaffolding decks:


Aluminum/plywood decks

With a perfect finish and enhanced durability, the decks consist of an aluminum frame and interchangeable, Combi-type, non slip plywood decking (thickness 9 or 12 mm). It is also equipped with manual or automatic locking system.

Full-aluminum decks

Tested for their resistance in compliance with standards EN 12810 and EN 12811, our aluminum decks consist of a self-supporting structure with extruded aluminum profiles and non slip aluminum decking.


  • Lighter than steel: for the equivalent surface, an aluminum deck weighs half as much as 2 steel half decks.
  • Reduced handling: aluminum decks are delivered as a single unit, against 2 separate sections for steel decks, which are heavier to carry.
  • longer lifetime: aluminum is maintenance free.

Trapdoor decks

The specifications of trapdoor decks are identical to standard decks. The added trapdoor facilitates access to an optional fold-up ladder. An all-aluminum version and an aluminum/ plywood version are available. Each trapdoor come in standard, long or offset version. A safety mechanism with hinged closure and locking system is included on all our trapdoor decks. These decks provide great stability to the structure and a comfortable work surface.


  • Several versions of trapdoors
  • Increased safety
  • A wide choice of options: inbuilt access ladders, handles, engraving, etc
  • Ensure safety for workers moving on the scaffolding

Telescopic decks

Quarter decks and half decks

Quarter decks and half decks are available in different sizes and several finishes:

Several hanging solutions

The hooks allow to suspended the decks on the scaffolding structure. It’s a very important element that needs to be designed for profiles on which it hangs. For this reason, FORTAL has developed an innovative scaffolding deck hook (patent 11 56111) with a steel frame and a polyamide decking that combines robustness, strength and aesthetics. Two types of safety systems are available for these hooks: automatic or manual. Customisation of the RAL colour and engraving for the hooks allowing to be identified on worksite thereby avoiding theft.
