NOTE This is L, as shown in Figure 2 (see Clause Z).
3.6 staging
working platform constructed to provide a flat, horizontal working surface
5 Materials
Materials shall conform to the material requirements of BS EN 131-2. Stagings and trestles made from plastic materials shall conform to the requirements in BS EN 131-2. All metal components, with the exception of metal fastenings, shall be protected against corrosion by one of the methods given in BS EN ISO 14713-1. Metal fastenings shall be protected against corrosion by one of the methods given in BS 7371 (all parts).
