Scaffolding Rental Prices

Scaffolding Rental Prices

There are many types of small portable scaffolding towers that can be hired or purchased relatively cheaply for use in a domestic or DIY situation.

There are two primary categories of scaffolding, fixed and mobile.

Scaffolding systems that are correctly designed will have work levels which are decked with regulation sized planks and have appropriate access for workers.

Make sure all planks and walk boards are at least 36 inches below the highest point of any portable scaffolding.

Scaffolding tubes are now usually constructed of galvanised steel but historically have been made of wooded staves and bamboo.

You should expect wooden scaffolding planks to have a shorter useable life than the scaffolding framework.

As portable scaffolding becomes more and more popular, there are more and more companies who are able to train those who use portable scaffolding.

If you are working on a building that is adjacent to a public highway, then the safety of all highway users is of great importance.

Good jobs in scaffolding could be difficult to find - make sure you keep ahead of the game when looking for scaffolding jobs.

Never use unstable objects such as bricks or boxes to support DIY scaffolding.
