Graphical Construction Glossary >> Temporary Work. >> Scaffolding >> Transom Beam
Above is a shot of a break in a scaffold to allow access to the inside of the building. It is spanned by two rather tired looking beams (at the bottom) and beefed up by two ladder beams (above) fixed to the standards with couplers.
Above is a similar situation on a small job leaving access to a residential garage. The scaffolder has fixed a transom truss to the face of the scaffold and has used putlogs to the window sill to carry the load against the wall.
