Build Your Own Scaffolding

Ever thought that it may be cheaper to buy your own scaffolding rather than rent it?

Any qualified scaffolder should be able to find employment with building contractors or scaffolding firms.

A license needs to be obtained for any scaffolding that is put up on the highway including the pavement. This is the responsibility of the scaffolding hire company.

It may be more convenient to buy scaffolding rather than rent it.

It may seem easy to erect and use DIY scaffolding but thousands of accidents occur each year on scaffolding.

For light duty tasks, aluminum scaffolding is an ideal choice. Strong and quick to assemble it can easily be moved from location to location.

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.

You must ensure that the scaffolding is secured to building when the height of the scaffolding exceeds four times the minimum base width.

DIY scaffolding systems are generally quite easy and straightforward to erect when the instructions are properly followed.

It's essential that all upright scaffolding poles are positioned no more than six feet apart.
