A good scaffolding rental company will be able to give you an exact date when the scaffolding will be delivered, and will also agree to give you a guarantee that if they do not deliver on the correct day you will receive some financial compensation.

If modifications need to be made to existing building, it's always necessary to use scaffolding.

As a general rule, a scaffold becomes unstable once its height reaches 4 times its width.

Soleplates are used at the base of the upright scaffolding poles to help distribute weight and minimize damage to the surface.

The width of the boards will always determine the width of the scaffolding structure. It is recommended that the width scaffolding should be no less than 600mm. A four board scaffold would be 870mm.

A scaffolding rental company has the knowledge and equipment to swiftly set up and dismantle scaffolding.

A conventional scaffolding system will be made of a number of sections which are stacked up to build a framework to a desired height.

When installing scaffolding, place vertical ties at the ends of the scaffolding. These ties should only be removed when the scaffolding is dismantled.

Since 1971, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has put a standard in place to help protect workers on scaffolds.

Take time to research the scaffold company you propose to use to ensure that it will meet all of your needs.
