Window Washer Scaffold

The main purpose of scaffolding structure is to provide a safe working place for workers who are involved in working in high rise structures.

Bear in mind, as the size of a construction project increases, so does the cost of scaffolding.

Scaffolding accidents within the construction industry are likely to be caused by a lack of appropriate safety checks and negligent poor structure.

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

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

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.

Independent scaffolding is a supported scaffold consisting of a platform(s) resting on cross beams (bearers) supported by ledgers and a double row of uprights independent of support.

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

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

You need to always be dealing with scaffolding companies which provide good, safe products which will allow you to trust those products for years to come.
