Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates to a scaffold device, and more specifically, to an adjustable scaffold device to be suspended from a top of a wall.
  • Scaffolds are devices that are used to allow workmen to work at various heights or locations when constructing a building. For example, scaffolding may consist of an elaborate formation of posts, rods, connectors, and planks with the planks used to support one or more workers along a horizontal work surface. Scaffolds are used instead of ladders and provide a platform on which a worker may safely stand for constructing the building or structure. Although such scaffolding is useful, it takes a large amount of time to construct at the jobsite and remove the scaffolding from the jobsite. In order to solve this problem, there have been developed or proposed various scaffold devices or brackets that are used to assemble scaffolding at a jobsite. Some of these scaffold devices are collapsible or folded into a flat package for transportation or storage. However, such devices or brackets are not adjustable and only provide for a small platform or horizontal work surface. There are times when a larger work surface or platform is necessary for better work conditions or safety. For example, it would be beneficial if the work surface is wide enough to allow two workers to pass without one of the workers having to move out of the way to allow passage of the other worker. None of the prior devices provide for the ability to adjust or expand the work surface.
  • It would be advantageous and desirable to have a scaffold device that is adjustable. The present invention is designed to obviate and overcome many of the disadvantages and shortcomings associated with present scaffold devices or brackets. In particular, the present invention provides the ability to adjust the width of a horizontal surface to provide various sized platforms or work surfaces for one or more workmen. The present invention also provides a scaffold device that is adjustable and can be folded or disassembled into a unit for easy transportation or storage.

The adjustable hanger assembly 18 is used to hang or suspend the devices 10 from the joist 100. Further, a plank 104 is placed on the support members 14 and the stops 46 are used to prevent the plank 104 from falling off of the devices 10. The horizontal support members 14 may be adjusted to accept larger planks 104 by repositioning the exterior member 24 relative to the interior member 26. Also, the horizontal support members 14 may be adjusted to accept smaller planks 104 by sliding the exterior member 24 toward the interior member 26. It is further contemplated that more than one plank may be positioned on the support members 14 to have a larger or smaller work surface as is required for a job. Although not shown, it is also possible that the exterior member 24 may have a series of apertures along a top surface of the member 24 to accept pins that are adapted to hold a pair of planks 104 in place. This will prevent movement of the planks 104 when a worker is walking on the planks 104. It is also possible and contemplated that the main support 12 may have an aperture near the bottom end of the channel member 20 to allow a worker to place a nail through the aperture to secure the main support 12 in place against the wall 102.
  • In operation, a worker transports one or more of the scaffold devices 10 to a worksite and then disassembles the scaffold device 10 from the folded condition or state, as was shown and described with reference to FIG. 3. Once the component parts have been separated, the adjustable hanger portion 18 is adjusted to be able to fit over the structure, such as the joist 100 of the wall 102, to which the device 10 will be suspended. Once in place the interior member 26 is placed at a desired height by choosing one pair of the apertures 22 and inserting the fastener 44. Once the position of the interior member 26 has been selected, the exterior member 24 is placed over the interior member 24 and adjusted to the desired width for a work surface or the width of one or more of the planks 104. The end 78 of the cross member 16 is positioned in the channel member 20 and secured in place by the use of the fastener 36. The other end 38 of the cross member 16 is then positioned to abut the exterior member 24. The fastener 40 is used to secure the end 38 of the cross member 16 to the exterior member 24 and the interior member 26 is also secured to the exterior member 24. The planks 104 may now be positioned on the horizontal members 14 and a worker may walk or work on the planks 104. A worker may easily use the device 10 for construction purposes on rafters, joists, a roof, siding, gutters, or fascia boards. As was discussed previously, a worker may also nail or secure the main support 12 to the wall 102. The scaffold devices 10 may be left in place and may be taken down when the job has been completed. Once taken down, the device 10 may be folded and secured as has been discussed. It is also possible that the device 10 may be placed on the wall prior to the wall being erected. For example, the wall may be fabricated on the ground and prior to the wall being moved into an upright position and secured in place, the device 10 may be attached.
