  • Abstract: The scaffold system have been used to assist the smooth construction works and to assure the safety of workers. The toe boards is one of the scaffold elements. It has been applied for workers and constructional materials on a scaffold deck to prevent the falling down. In this paper, thin steel sheets were applied to the toe boards to reduce the self weight. The proposed boards were designed under the recommendation of the temporal construction elements. Also, the wind effects were considered in designing the proposed toe board. The applied design load was the horizontal load from the scaffold deck or the load perpendicular to the scaffold deck. The proposed toe boards were examined numerically by use of the finite element method and experimentally by the loading tests. From both numerical and experimental results, the performance of the thin steel toe board proposed here was confirmed.
