What's the Difference between Ringlock (K-Ring) & Cuplock?

Ringlock scaffolding is relatively new type of scaffolding system, designed with prefabricated components, each manufactured to be installed in a specific location.

Ringlock (K-Ring), like Cuplock (K-Lock) is a modular type of scaffolding designed with speed of installation and ease of adaptation at the forefront.

Brisko Metal Resources currently supplies Cuplock and Kwikstage systems, with Ringlock – also known as K-Ring our own accredited equivalent soon to be available.


What is Ringlock Scaffolding? (K-Ring)

Ringlock is becoming the popular system of choice mainly due to its unique ability to cater for complex geometries, providing far more flexibility than cuplock or kwikstage scaffolds.

K-Ring our non-branded equivalent of Ringlock is extremely versatile. It can be erected for straight, curved or circular configuration for both access and support, and also for independent mobile towers.

There are no loose components on the K-Ring System that can be lost or require maintenance. All components are hot dipped galvanized with a minimum zinc coating of 85 microns.

Ringlock is a low-maintenance type of scaffold, being a fully galvanized system repair and refurbishment is far less than is required with painted systems such as Kwikstage. Ringlock also has the ability to be quickly and easily adapted, as and when required.

Ringlock is engineered with a unique rosette-type central connecting point that provides the ability to achieve angles in installation other types of system scaffolds cannot.

Components are quickly attached to the rosette central point. Which features a 4-way design, with up to 8 various angles possible.

This type of design is what provides Ringlock with more flexibility than its preceding system – cuplock.

Due to this unique rosette-type central connecting point, Ringlock can easily and quickly be installed on complicated building geometries, with no need for time consuming tube and fitting scaffolds.

Ringlock K-Ring supplied by Brikso Metal Resources conforms to BS1139 Part 5, HD1000, OSHA and Australian New Zealand Standards.

Fully Tested to BS EN1281, audited and approved by NASC (National Access and Scaffolding Confederation).

Certification, load data and complete user guide is also available on request.


What’s the Difference with Cuplock Scaffolding?

Cuplock differs from Ringlock due to design.

Cuplock is designed with a central node cup-type connecting point that permits components to be attached, locking in place via the cup-type connection.

Cuplock can only provide 4 way angles at the central connecting point, whereas Ringlock has the ability to provide up to 8. 

Cuplock (K-Lock) features no loose parts and with corrosion protection by hot-dip galvanizing to British Standard 729, minimum thickness of the zinc coating is 85 microns.

Cuplock is another popular type of industrial scaffold, also being fully galvanized and low-maintenance, featuring prefabricated parts and quick installation.

Cuplock is also a robust system, chosen over Kwikstage by many contractors and companies due to being low-maintenance and considered more robust than Kwikstage.

K-Lock supplied and available from Brisko Metal Resources conforms to BS1139 Part 5, HD1000, OSHA and Australian New Zealand Standards.
