Small Scaffolding

Always ensure that DIY scaffold is properly secured, with outriggers as necessary, before use.

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

Hoop irons (or nail plates) are a protective metal plate fitted to the end of a scaffolding board.

Finding scaffolding companies that you can trust is very important when buying or hiring scaffolding, to ensure that you are getting a good quality product.

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

If the scaffold is 4 times as high as its base is wide, outriggers should be installed to increase the scaffold's width.

Before portable scaffolding is used, all the wheels will need to be locked and rigid which will keep the portable scaffolding stable for climbing.

Whether you erect scaffolding, or run a business that rents scaffolding, make sure you purchase the insurance programs and coverages that will suit the needs and risks of your business.

Always take the time to familiarize yourself with the scaffolding regulations.

Any safety feature that can be applied to a scaffolding plank will add to its value.
