A system scaffolding construction can incorporate varying distances between legs for maximum flexibility.
There are two primary categories of scaffolding, fixed and mobile.
A good scaffolding design should provide a way for workers to climb from platform to platform with ease.
Falls from a height, especially from independent scaffolding, continue to be the biggest killer on construction sites.
The independent scaffold has standards or uprights on both sides of its working platforms. This allows the independent scaffold to remain upright without support from the building under construction or repair.
When erecting mobile scaffolding ensure that all working platforms are tightly planked.
To erect scaffolding, a scaffolding company must first apply for an appropriate permit.
A scaffolding framework is usually made from a series of metal poles and wooden planks which act as working platforms.
Bamboo scaffolding is well renowned for its strength.
Not only is it important to purchase or rent the correct type of scaffolding to insure that the job is done correctly, but also to maintain the safety of the construction workers employed on the job.
Scaffolding is a vital requirement for any construction project. Unfortunately, scaffolding is not cheap! Find out more about the the ins and outs of hiring your own scaffolding, which of course, is the less costly option.
