In scaffolding systems, a bottom cup, also known as a base plate or footplate, is an essential component used to provide a stable and level footing for the scaffold structure. It is designed to distribute the weight of the scaffold and the load it supports evenly on the ground surface, preventing sinking or tilting and enhancing safety and stability.The bottom cup is typically a circular metal plate with a threaded socket in the center. This threaded socket allows the bottom cup to be securely attached to the end of a scaffold leg or vertical tube. It acts as a base and serves as the point of contact between the scaffold and the ground.To set up a scaffold, the bottom cups are first positioned on the ground at the desired locations, and then the vertical tubes or scaffold legs are inserted into the threaded sockets of the bottom cups. Once all the vertical tubes are in place, the scaffold structure is built by adding horizontal tubes, diagonal braces, and other components, creating a sturdy and safe working platform.The use of bottom cups ensures that the scaffold remains stable and level, even on uneven or soft ground surfaces. It also helps to prevent damage to the ground by evenly distributing the weight and load of the scaffold structure.
