What is scaffolding?

Scaffolding is a temporary structure built using steel poles that are erected horizontally and vertically in a similar manner as a giant Meccano set would be, then laid down using wooden walking boards.

Access ladders and handrails are incorporated as standards that deliver easy access to all the levels of the scaffold. Scaffolding is a versatile structure; it is adaptable for use in hard-to-reach areas and narrow spaces, such as chimneys.

Why do you need scaffolding?

Present health and safety laws in the UK states that the use of scaffolding access structures by construction workers when working at heights is mandatory. Ladders apply to minor jobs alone; scaffolding is a legal prerequisite for projects at heights with a long lifespan.  You will need scaffolding for projects such as paint jobs on exterior walls, fascia and window replacement, and chimney restoration. Whether you’re doing repairs or erecting a new building, you need access to the higher regions of your structure or roof.

It’s crucial if you plan to work on your chimney, roof tiles, or eaves.  Scaffolding is the ideal solution when it comes to situations like this. To ensure safety at your site, scaffolding should be hired and assembled. Scaffolding structures provide easy access to areas that are difficult to reach. In ensuring your projects are carried out safely and on time, scaffolding is your best bet to save money and time. Scaffolding is especially useful when heavy materials, such as mortar bricks, have to be used during construction work. Materials can be stockpiled on the scaffolding before work begins; it helps reduce the need for endless trips moving them. Ready to start?  Talk to us, our professionals are willing and available.

How does scaffolding work?

Scaffolds are constructed using metal poles that are laid vertically and horizontally. Forming the walkways are the wooden boards that are placed on the poles. These poles are called lifts or levels. Certain projects may need multiple levels; this can be achieved by placing more wooden walkways or adding more horizontal metal poles. However, this process is more expensive and increases the duration of scaffolding installation.

For most scaffolds, access ladders and safety handrails are the standard. Scaffolds are erected by scaffolding professionals, who have the equipment to tackle obstacles that could affect the safe use of the scaffold. The flexibility of current scaffolding structures allows them to be used in confined spaces such as chimneys or in areas that are difficult to access.

Scaffolding Types

  • Residential Scaffolding 
  • Commercial Scaffolding
  • Industrial Scaffolding

What are the common uses for scaffold?

The UK health and safety regulations have altered the rules governing the use of scaffolding structures during construction work. Workers are now mandated to use scaffolds and access structures for all work done at heights. In addition to this, ladders must not be used for extended periods. This means scaffolding will be the new norm for scaffolders to use to reach elevated positions in building construction projects. The construction process is safer when scaffolding is used because it prevents workers from falling while working at heights. Construction sites are safe and secure when scaffolding structures are used, especially when working at heights.

Can anyone erect scaffolding?

Scaffolding should be erected, designed, and dismantled by only skilled and qualified scaffolders, under the supervision of health and safety advisers. This is enforced by the work at height regulations of 2005. You void your insurance if the scaffolding system is assembled by untrained personnel. Ensure that the company you are trying to hire has the required qualification, training and experience.

How is the cost of scaffolding hire calculated?

At Ace Scaffolding, our scaffolding is hired out for a set period of time, which is usually 4 weeks. After this period has passed, the hire attracts an extra fee which is charged weekly. Long-term projects may attract extra fees if the project exceeds the set completion time.

What are the elements that influence the price of scaffolding hire?

The nature of scaffolding needed for each project leads to variations in the price charged but the general price of scaffolding is influenced by various factors. Some of those factors that influence scaffolding hire quote include:

  • The number of scaffold lifts needed.
  • The height and length of the scaffolding structure.
  • The number of scaffold lifts that need boarding out.
  • Whether a scaffolding pavement license will be necessary and how much it costs (this varies between local councils).
  • The location of the site where the scaffolding needs to be erected.
  • If beams will be necessary for bridging certain obstacles.
  • Special access equipment or design work required

The duration of time for which the scaffolding stays in place will increase the price of scaffolding hire. The best time to assemble scaffolding is at the start of the project. It’s best to choose a scaffolding company that can deliver scaffolding quickly, and book your scaffolding in advance whenever possible. This saves you from spending money on scaffolding you are not making use of.
