A putlog scaffold may also be called a bricklayer’s scaffold. As such, the scaffold consists only of a single row of standards with a single ledger. The putlogs, (transoms with one end flattened) are attached to the ledger at one end but integrated into the bricks at the other. Spacing is the same on a putlog scaffold as on a general purpose scaffold, and ties are still required.
