The standard scaffold board will have a maximum length of 3.9 meters and width of 225mm.
Make sure that all scaffolding bars, tools, and materials are at least 10 feet away from energized power lines and that the power lines are also protected.
A mobile scaffold is a type of freestanding independent scaffold. It is mounted on castors or wheels that swivel and allow the scaffold to be easily moved from location to location.
Make sure all planks and walk boards are at least 36 inches below the highest point of any portable scaffolding.
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.
If scaffolding has been erected completely around a building, use 'stand off' bracing members to ensure that the scaffolding is restrained.
Price is always a consideration when choosing a scaffold company - make sure that the scaffold company that you choose will not compromise on service or safety.
