FAQ

Plank related questions?

What plank size is the right size?

The longer the aluminium plank, the better (generally).

Longer requires less moving around of your setup, and provides a more spacious workspace. So it is normally recommended to go as long as you can possible. 

The right length planks will also be defined by the space you have to get the job done.

If you're regularly using planks or have multiple different spaces, then it will be better to have a range of different planks lengths to avoid costly delays and extra work. 

There is no one size fits all. 
Instead, we choose the right plank size best matched to the space and limitations we face.

Why no extendable planks?

Yakka Gear's planks are made from one solid extrusion and reinforced with 2x internal support columns.

We refuse to offer the extendable plank, because it is made of many individual sliding components which may create unsafe wobble and instability when walking across it.
The shape is not symmetric on each end, which means it is unsuitable when used as a ramp because it is off-balanced.

Are the rubber treads removeable?

Yes, you can manually pull out the rubber treads if not desired.

How to cut the planks?

Our planks use a removable endcap system, which allow you to easily relocate it to the newly cut end.

Cuts may be made made with a circular saw with an aluminium cutting blade. Please seek expert help if required.

Are endcaps important?

Yes. They prevent rubbish from filling inside the plank, and prevent injury by covering the sharp ends.

Do I need an Expert Plank Clamp?

With Expert Plank Clamps you will 2x your work capacity, and 2x your safety.

The magic of the Expert plank clamp is the simplicity and safety of linking 2 planks together.

Why not just put 2 planks side by side then?

If you have ever tried this then you will already know how dangerous it is...
This is because the planks will lift up and down independently of each other as you shift your weight from one plank to another — which creates a trap for getting your feet or tools stuck.

The Expert Plank Clamp prevents the planks from moving independently.

But not all clamps are made equal.

Avoid using any design with a nut-and-bolt system that requires an Allen Key (aka Hex Key) for tightening. These designs are frustratingly fiddly to use.

Expert Plank Clamp difference?

Easy hand lever for adjusting tightness.

The spreader bar system wraps around both planks from underneath to help evenly distribute the weight across both planks and therefore effectively creates a 50% reduction on the planks flexing.
