Setting Up Scaffolding

Setting Up Scaffolding

If you buy folding scaffolding it may be easy to set up but can be difficult to stack up high and difficult to store.

Scaffolding tubes are usually connected with metal 'Clams' (clamps) which offer a versatile and effective method for the erection of scaffolding.

Throughout the whole of Asia bamboo scaffolding is a common sight on many construction sites.

When you first look at a scaffolding structure it can seem that it's supporting the building. It's only when you take a closer look you'll find it doesn't.

Steel scaffolding is a must for all major construction projects because of its safety and contribution to higher efficiency.

The purpose of construction scaffolding is to provide a safe working platform to help builders in the construction of buildings.

Guard rails should be provided when working on scaffolding over the height of 10 feet. Otherwise, each worker must be protected by a fall protection system.

Scaffolding costs can be greatly reduced if you 'do it yourself' - however, be warned that if anyone other than yourself uses the scaffolding you will have to ensure that all the current scaffolding regulations, especially with regard to safety, are adhered to - otherwise your scaffolding costs could be more than just financial.

ALWAYS WARE A HARD HAT whenever you're erecting, dismantling or moving scaffolding.

Make sure that all workers are aware of the new 'fall zone' when moving portable scaffolding.
