John Taylor, PHD’s Contract Manager, developed a bespoke scaffold tie to resolve most of the common issues reported with typical scaffolding ties. After months of development, the JT Tie© was born.
There are three main concepts to the JT Tie’s design; reduce the amount of materials used, decrease the chance of removal/tampering, and eliminate the cutting of tubes, increasing the sustainability of materials.
The JT Tie went from concept, through to our in-house design and engineering team, and undertook vigorous testing through the external company TESMEC Ltd.
In October 2019, our patent was registered, and we have successfully rolled out two sizes of the JT Tie across most of our sites, including Barratt’s Hounslow Quarter, L&Q’s South Grove, and Lendlease’s Elephant Park.
