The MacBrace is a simple component that allows the MacDeck system to become totally free standing when built in line with manufacturer guidelines. This means that the MacDeck system can be erected without supporting walls – this is a common requirement in today’s housing market with low level living spaces at single story and protruding porches.

Macdeck FAQ

Macdeck can be loaded up to 2.0kn (200kg) per m2, the weight should be evenly distributed above the legs, loading diagrams are provided on request for each specific house builder. *Please note, the loading is also determined by the floor joist manufacturers load capacity, you can load our system to 2.0kn. However, please bare in mind the joists may not be able to sustain the leg load imposed when the decking system is fully loaded.
Macdeck is specifically designed to allow tubular or system scaffold to be built through the system. JMSS have a generic scaffolding design with supporting calculations for the erection of party wall scaffolding to be built through the decking system. JMACs heritage and experience comes through managing a successful scaffolding company, this allows us to tailor and advise on bespoke projects to coordinate scaffolding operations with safety decking platforms, creating value for money for the client.
