Our history & journey | Over 100 years’ experience

SGB celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2019. SGB has played a major role in the development of the scaffolding industry, mainly because it developed the Cuplok™ system, one of the most frequently used scaffolding systems in the world.

Today there are millions of cubic meter of original Cuplok™ in the market, but also a lot of copy products. One might argue that this is proof that many of the contractors believe in the added value of Cuplok™. However, the risk comes from the design and loading capacities of the copies. Original SGB Cuplok™ is designed and manufactured up to certain specifications to hold specific design loads. For example, the Gr43 Cuplok™ loading capacity is 57KN. Gr50 Cuplok™ has a loading capacity of 74KN. Copy products might bring risks to contractors, as they might inadvertently use lower grade material based on the assumption that it has the same loading capacity and features. As result, failure could happen during pouring and major losses could happen. This safety approach is not only reflected in the standards for product development but also in the corporate-wide procedures for Occupational Health & Safety. This is why for 2015 and 2016, SGB have had zero LTI (Lost Time Injury) throughout Middle East, Africa, and South East Asia.
