Scaffold Handrail

Scaffold Handrail

Be aware of all the health and safety regulations associated with construction scaffolding.

Hanging bracket scaffolds may have horizontal structures that are supported by the floors of the building or other edifice under construction or repair.

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.

Most scaffolding bars, particularly in North America, are usually connected with metal 'Clams' (clamps) which offer a versatile and effective method for the erection of scaffolding.

Make sure that the scaffold companies you propose to use have a good history in terms of reputation service and safety.

In general you can use steel scaffolding and mild steel scaffolding up to ten stories. Any higher workers must take extra supportive measures.

To erect scaffolding on or over a public highway, you'll need to be issued with a license from your local Highway Authority.

A good scaffolding design should provide a way for workers to climb from platform to platform with ease.

Vertical scaffolding tubes must be supported on proprietary base plates to ensure the safety of the scaffolding.

Be very careful that it is in good condition if you buy scaffolding that is cheap.
