Small Scaffolding

Small Scaffolding

Falls from a height, especially from independent scaffolding, continue to be the biggest killer on construction sites.

A scaffolding course will enable you to gain vital knowledge you'll need to ensure that all your scaffold work is safe.

One of the most overlooked scaffolding components is scaffolding tube.

Hiring scaffolding can be a good way of reducing scaffolding costs if you only have a small scale project to undertake.

Due to lack of storage space smaller scaffolding companies will often leave their scaffolding up until it can be moved to the next job.

Be sure that when you research a scaffold company you keep in mind your own needs for scaffolding - make sure the scaffold company will be able to be flexible enough to accommodate what YOU want from them.

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.

There are a number of scaffolding types available. Therefore it's always advisable to familiarize yourself with the hazards associated with the scaffold type you're using.

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

In some Asian countries, historically, scaffolding bars made of bamboo have been used to construct high rise buildings, and are still used even today.
