Safety concerns prompt scaffold brace recall

People who use scaffolding are being urged to take note of the recall of an Oldfields Guard Rail brace as the result of safety concerns.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) recall is for the Oldfields Guard Rail brace – yellow hook for use with the Oldfields 2600 series, Zippy-Scaff, and Mini Zippy-Scaff mobile scaffolding towers. The brace connects to the scaffolding structure.

Affected products have a serial number range 120563200 – 120731996 and were manufactured between November 2020 and May 2024.

The products have been recalled because the locking mechanism may not close properly on the brace, which may cause it to disengage and detach from the scaffold frame.

There is a risk of serious injuries or death from falls or damage to property if the guard rail brace becomes detached from the frame.

Consumers should stop using the product immediately.

Consumers should contact Oldfields directly to arrange to return the brace to Oldfields or have Oldfields collect the brace for a free repair.

For more information or to arrange collection, consumers can call the dedicated recall hotline on 1300 306 999, email or visit
