Expandable Scaffold Plank

Expandable Scaffold Plank

Place sole boards underneath the scaffolding framework if you're erecting scaffolding on soft or unstable ground. You could use regular scaffolding boards, however, they tend to a bit too long.

Be careful not to mix any scaffolding components that are not designed to be compatible.

When estimating your budget on scaffolding, make sure not to put price before safety.

Never use unstable objects such as bricks or boxes to support DIY scaffolding.

To prevent workers from slipping it's essential for a scaffolding plank to have a non slip surface.

Independent scaffolding is a supported scaffold consisting of a platform(s) resting on cross beams (bearers) supported by ledgers and a double row of uprights independent of support.

A few Internet sites that both sell and rent scaffolding have estimator tools. These tools enable you to design the scaffolding for your particular needs and project and then tell you what would be needed for your design.

Always read carefully and follow all instructions regarding scaffolding erection, usage and dismantling.

When selecting scaffolding components, make sure that they have been constructed the requirements of the ASTM and ANSI.

It is essential that all base plates and screw jacks (that come with base plates) must be secured firmly to the base of the scaffolding.
