Specialist Scaffolding Services

Our service includes the provision of safe access to scaffolds that can be used by scaffolders in the erection process and workmen to get to the working platform, thus removing the need to climb the scaffold directly. Ladder bays and stairways are used where accessibility makes these the preferred option. We adopt a unique system of operation which enables our scaffolding team to work away from and then back towards the means of access and emerge progressively, especially when they want to erect, alter, or dismantle the next lift.

How does scaffold work?
The main purpose of erecting a scaffold is to provide workers with a safe working platform and an access solution suitable enough to walk or work across. There is a European Standard for working scaffolds that sets out optimum performance requirements for safe use. These requirements are virtually independent of the material type from which the scaffold is constructed.
What is a hanging scaffold?
A Hanging Scaffold is any temporary elevated work platform which is suspended by means of structural fittings or fixtures to enable the user to carry out his/her work from this deck.
What is a birdcage scaffolding?
Birdcage scaffolding is a type of scaffolding that has been designed for heavy-duty use. Because birdcage scaffolds are typically wider than conventional scaffolds, the number of braces increase to compensate for the increased stress on the structure.
What is crash-deck scaffolding?
Crash-deck scaffolding is a scaffolding structure used indoors to carry out repairs and home redecoration at ceiling heights. Because they’re internal-deck scaffolds, crash-deck are typically used for lighter tasks.
What is the swing stage scaffolding?
A swing stage scaffold is a scaffold platform that swings to and from a building just like a stage. It swings up and down with the help of ropes tied to a catenary wire or attached to support columns. It is typically used for flat building exterior repairs or painting. The swing stage is the most common form of scaffold used on construction sites.
What is a cantilever scaffold?
A cantilever scaffold is a scaffold consisting of two supports or towers which can extend at an angle from a building or other structure. The cantilever style of scaffolding eliminates the need for poles or frames to be erected in front of a building. So, cantilever scaffolds are often erected near balconies for easy access.
How long will it take to set up a scaffolding platform?
The precise time required depends on factors like the model of scaffold used and other related details, but usually, it is something from a couple of hours to two days.
Is a government license required to install scaffolds?
If you’re a scaffolder or builder who needs to erect a scaffold within your property, you won’t need a license. If part of the scaffold will stretch past the edge of your property, you cannot construct it without a government license or permit.
How far can your scaffold platform extend out from the building?
Vertically: Every 20 ft. (6.1m) or less for scaffolding of fewer than 3 ft. (0.91m) in width; Every 26 ft. (7.9m) or less for scaffolding of more than 3 ft. (0.91m) in width. Horizontally: At each secured end; At intervals of not more than 30 ft. (9.1m) from just one end.
What’s the maximum safe amount of load a scaffold can carry?
To calculate this estimate, multiply 35 sq ft by 25 pounds/sq ft and it can be seen that the scaffold cannot carry over 875 pounds of materials. Thus, only 3 persons (each weighing 250 pounds) and another 125 pounds of tools or materials can be safely loaded onto the scaffold at the same time.
How safe are scaffolds?
If the scaffold is constructed by experts like our team of scaffolders, then we can answer the question positively. Professionally constructed scaffolds will sit safely in any surface type, from an uneven or smooth ground to a sloppy surface. This is because there are some adjustable vertical components on the platforms which are part of such scaffolding systems. An adjustable component is a scaffolding component that is able to compensate for ground irregularities such as bumps and dips.
Is the scaffolding necessary for roof works?
Scaffolding is sometimes required for roof works, most likely because there’s some work involved with the roof itself. The scaffold is needed to ensure workers are kept out of harm’s way from items that might fall from the roof, or that an injury doesn’t occur to those working or walking on the ground. When working within a height restriction, a scaffold with an edge will need to be used and the area below should be kept clear for access.
What is the ideal height of a scaffold on a project?
The ideal height is 6 ft above the ground level in the construction level and 4 ft above the lower level in the general industry. Also, fall protection is required for a scaffolding platform at 10 ft.
What is the right maximum height of a mobile scaffolding platform?
All freestanding scaffolding structures must have a minimum height to base length ratio of 3:1. For general use as a mobile scaffold platform, the maximum height is 9m.
What is the maximum gap allowed between scaffold planking?
The government require that the spaces between scaffold planks and uprights or between the scaffold planks must be s standard width of 1″ or less except the contractor can show that a wider space is necessary for general safety in situ. However, ensure the structure is adequately decked or planked.
Is it advisable to use a ladder on a scaffold platform?
For safety reasons, it is generally not advisable to use a ladder on scaffolding. Ladders do not have the strength and stability of scaffolding. In general, it is a good idea to not place ladders on scaffolding. It carries greater risk than placing it on the ground as intended.
How long can a scaffold stay up?
Most times, a scaffold platform remains in place as erected for months or years.
What is the maximum safe height from the ground for workers on a scaffold?
Once the working height is greater than 3 times the smallest width of the scaffold tower, workers must tie the scaffolding platform to the building structure at specific intervals for safety. A scaffold platform of 5-ft width is required to be fastened if the height is more than 15 ft high.
Can scaffold structures be permanent?
The scaffold forms part of the structure under construction and reinforces the work being done and can be temporary or semi-permanent.
