Plans To Build Scaffolding

Plans To Build Scaffolding

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

Fixed scaffolds are constructed alongside a building and can be either independent or putlog.

Scaffolding costs can be high and it is therefore important to read any customer reviews on each company you might consider to use to ensure you are dealing with a reliable company.

Be aware that scaffolding firms may be able to hire scaffolding poles out to you at very low cost.

The width of the boards will always determine the width of the scaffolding structure. It is recommended that the width scaffolding should be no less than 600mm. A four board scaffold would be 870mm.

When using a scaffolding company make sure that an appropriate license has been obtained before any work has been started.

The independent scaffold has standards or uprights on both sides of its working platforms. This allows the independent scaffold to remain upright without support from the building under construction or repair.

As a general rule, a scaffold becomes unstable once its height reaches 4 times its width.

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

Ever thought that it may be cheaper to buy your own scaffolding rather than rent it?
