Cuplock bracing is a type of steel scaffolding used in construction. It is composed of vertical standards that are connected by horizontal ledgers and bracings, which are held in place by steel cups. The cups have a tapered shape, which allows them to be easily locked into place. Cuplock bracing is a versatile and efficient scaffolding system, as it can be used for a wide range of applications and is easy to assemble and dismantle. It is also lightweight and cost-effective, making it an ideal choice for many construction projects.
