Cubby Caps

Cubby Caps - Image

Scaffold tubes are produced and used without the ends enclosed which allows foreign obejcts to be placed inside (welding rods, screwdrivers, debris, dust particles, etc.). This then causes a major safety problem when the scaffold is dismantled, with the potential for falling objects to cause serious or even fatal injury.

Cubby Caps are plastic end caps which solve this safety problem. They are simple to install but difficult to remove and do not interfere with the current erection and handling methods.

The cap comes in three variants - general (1), flanged (2) , and the Sella cap (3).

The flanged model (2) takes the basic Cap shape and adds a protective lip to the end of the scaffold tube, with the centre hollowed out leaving a wall at the bottom. This allows the scaffolders to carry the tubes in the same way as they currently do, but prevents any foreign objects from being pushed into the tubes. The end caps have an interference fit with the tube, thus making them difficult to remove.

The Sella Cap (3) is similar to the flanged cap but has a closed end to prevent any foreign contamination or foreign particles entering the inside of the scaffold tube.

The material used in all Cubby Caps is high density polythene which has good chemical resistance and is stable over a good temperature range. All products in our range are available in a special Glow in the Dark material. These products work by absorbing either natural light or electrical light within the product and releasing it in the form of a glow for a limited period of time, when the lighting goes off. Ideal for indicating walk ways and dangerous obstructions in the dark.

Case Studies

The Cubby Cap has yet again proved an effective safety tool in the prevention of injury to personnel during our recent Cracking Complex Shutdown.

Objects such as welding rods or bolts, inadvertently placed inside the ends of scaffold tubes, effectively become lethal missiles during scaffold dismantling with a high potential for a serious injury.

We are pleased to report that there were no incidents – that is Accidents or Near Misses reported of that nature during or after the shutdown. The insertion of Cubby Caps should have become a standard ‘best practice’ for all scaffold activity on our site and you have my support to achieve this.

I would like to take this opportunity to endorse the Cubby Cap as a fine, innovative safety product that we've introduced at Sullom Voe Terminal.

In the past we have had numerous near misses caused by dropped objects and have recently embarked upon a programme of prevention. The Cubby Cap has provided the Terminal with some much-needed reassurance in this area.

The fact that it makes it impossible for people to store hammers, files etc in the end of scaffold tubes will significantly reduce the potential for serious incidents and injuries.

The BP corporate HSE goals are no accidents, no harm to people, and no damage to the environment. At Sullom Voe we have made the Cubby Cap a site standard and believe that this product will support our achievement of these goals.

These internal tube caps are an excellent solution to a long-standing safety problem within the construction industry.

Debris falling from inside scaffold tubes has been a consistent problem. All scaffolders will recount stories of near misses or even being hit by welding rods, small pipework, stones or hacksaw blades which have been hidden or stored in the ends of scaffold tubes.

Unlike the external type tube cap end, the Cubby Cap cannot be interfered with and does not degrade with wear and tear. Since it has been introduced on the sites that I am familiar with there has not been a single incident involving debris falling from inside scaffold tubes.

I believe that the Cubby Cap is an excellent innovation within current safety items and has long been overdue in being brought on to the market.
