System scaffolding in Australia is one of the primary requirements of any building constructor while carrying out any kind of building or repair job. One of the most popular systems of creating a staging structure is Kwikstage or Quickwedge system, which is a modular scaffolding system in which wedges cater to all requirements of securing all access scaffolds, thereby eliminating all loose ends. The wedge-based fixing of the ledgers and transoms offers an uncomplicated and efficient way of providing access to scaffoldings in the Kwikstage System. It has an inflexible and well-defined four way fixing that renders fastened location without any kind of unwanted movement in the system. This structure furnishes a guaranteed vertical alignment through a highly effective spigot and wedge based fitting.
