What Kind of Scaffolding Do You Need?
Scaffolding is temporary support that is assembled for the uses of construction work, to help underpin the original building or structure. Types of scaffolding can vary, depending on the kind of job, building and material you are working with. The majority of scaffolding is made up of steel and timber, being a stable and strong candidate to work with and support structures, materials and workers.
Steel scaffolding is made up of steel tubes, creating a strong and sturdy support for workers and materials to be loaded on to. Steel scaffolding can competently reach great heights without affecting the safety of the scaffold, and withstand strong winds and harsh weather conditions whilst carrying heavy loads, making it an efficient and time-saving option within scaffolding.
Mobile scaffolding is a very similar form of standard scaffolding, however, it has its added benefits such as being capable of being moved with the help of wheels that are mounted to the bottom of each support pole. Mobile scaffolds are perfect for transporting equipment and materials spread over a large area.
A builders trestle scaffolding system offers an easy and inexpensive way of creating an uprising platform that is suitable for activities such as painting and decorating. This type of scaffolding is designed to help with light-duty work, where the ceiling is not higher than the height of this scaffold can reach.
Cantilevered scaffolding is a form of scaffolding that is normally used to overcome obstacles that prevent a scaffolding tower being erected or reduce the chances of damage occurring to the structure beneath. Cantilever scaffolding uses needles to support the work platform. These scaffolds are used for situations where the ground surface cannot support a scaffolding standard.
