Build Your Own Scaffolding

Scaffolding bars are used to make the structure of scaffolding which is used for the construction and maintenance of buildings etc.

Even the Romans used scaffolding in their construction projects!

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

Always ensure that DIY scaffold is properly secured, with outriggers as necessary, before use.

Always take the time to familiarize yourself with the scaffolding regulations.

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.

The scaffolding regulations are designed to protect the public as well as providing safety to workers.

Overall, scaffolding costs, like any other construction cost, will vary from project to project and whether you hire out or do it yourself.

It is not unusual for scaffolding companies and contractors to offer a complete scaffolding hire service for its customers.

Remember to be careful whenever you're erecting scaffolding on soft, frozen or suspect ground.
