Welcome to Crossway

Our business is based around the Van Thiel Concept which starts from the storage, handling and transportation of materials. As material are stored in stilages and bins and are loaded by forklift in our yards and unloaded on site by our lorry mounted cranes.

We do not use 21 ‘ tubes, as these weigh up to 30kg and we deem them to be too heavy for manual handling, this was the main reason we adopted the current way of working. Our longest tube is 4meters in length which are easier and safer to handle when in use.

Once erected the scaffold can be easily adapted by sliding the telescopic transoms either in or out with up to three inside boards between inside standards and face the building. The Tubelock system is ideal for timber frame, concrete and steel buildings, which need to be cladded in various materials
We only employ 100% direct employees and qualified operatives, most of who have been with the company for many years. Please note our accreditations – they speak for themselves and distance Crossway from the nearest competitors

Van Thiel
In recent years Crossway have invested in the Van Thiel Concept. This encompasses the whole process of the loading and unloading of materials, and the speed of erection, adaption and dismantling.

There is no requirement for servicing, as the Tubelok connectors and wedge fittings are service-free.
Also Van Thiel equipment gives many health and safety advantages to the workforce. Materials are lighter weight and easier to assemble. With tube-lock and shorter lengths there is less strain on the scaffolder, and with joints crimped to the tube lengths there is less risk of a joint falling off and causing injury.

Van Thiel equipment has no protruding tubes, allowing tarpaulins and advertising banners to be more
easily attached.

Van Thiel Extendable-transoms in conjunction with hop-up brackets can extend and adapt to the building's specifications - ideal for brickwork scaffolds, where adaptions are needed. Thiel-Lock transoms have been designed so that a scaffold no longer requires cross-bracing, with platforms completely clear.

This separates members from the rest of the industry. Many public and private organisations and an increasing number of local authorities are now specifying that the scaffolding contractors they employ must be members of the NASC.

All NASC members are independently audited every 2 years to ensure they are adhering to the code of practice.

Crossway adopt new SG4:10 PROCEDURE 1 - Click here

Crossway adopt new SG4:10 PROCEDURE

SG4 was the name given by the NASC to the procedure implemented 10 years ago by the scaffolding industry to provide a safer way to erect and dismantle scaffolding

SG4 was approved by the HSE however it was not ideal as it allowed scaffolders to transverse, unprotected until they could connect the end of a single guardrail.

Over the last ten years SG4 has been revised with SG4:05 in 2005 and now SG4:10 to be implemented from the first of January 2011

SG4:10 means quite simply that are all scaffolding operations must be conducted behind a minimum of a single guardrail (all working platforms must have double guard rail and toeboard as per the Work At Height Regulations, 2005)

It is now an offence for a scaffolder to work without at least one single guard rail erected in advance.



Crossway develop step up platform system - Click here

Crossway develop step up platform system

There have been various innovations developed recently by the scaffolding industry including advanced guard rail systems prior to SG4:10 becoming active.

Crossway have implemented the step up platform system which means the scaffolder can erect the guardrails for the next lift, protected by the ledgers and transoms of that lift in advance, before accessing the next lift. The scaffolder still has to clip on to the ledgers whilst accessing the step up.


Note: Many unregulated scaffolding erectors have not implemented SG4 at any stage of its development. There is usually a tell-tale sign if there are no single guardrails on any of the lifts



Forthcoming developments – steel boards - Click here

Forthcoming developments – steel boards

Crossway are leading the development of a steel scaffolding board, for use on conventional scaffolding systems. It has long been a worry for major contractors that the timber scaffold board can be suspect and subject to abuse on site, such as cut marks from roofing and other operations. This kind of damage could be undetected by scaffold inspectors if the scaffold is loaded with materials.

Timber boards have limited lifespan of 2 years when a steel board will last for 10 years plus



Crossways new hoarding system - Click here

Crossways new hoarding system

Crossway are utilising the benefits of a unique plastic hoarding system which clips easily to their Van Thiel scaffold system.
The hoarding is made from panels ranging up to 5 metres in height and can be used for most applications where security is an issue, whether it be in a shopping centre or historic buildings and churches. There is a constant issue with church projects where security is paramount due to the high amount of lead used in church roofs. Insurance companies insist that hoardings must be a minimum of 5 metres high therefore the plastic system Crossway are using is much quicker and cheaper to install than the timber plywood or corrugated metal alternatives.
