Different Types Of Scaffolding To Use In Construction

by Kevil Nill Nescaffold
Every construction project has its specifics when it comes to the use of scaffolding structures. However, most of the structures serve the same purposes, that is, enhancing safety and boosting access, balance, and positioning. Among the different types of scaffolding equipment available for construction work, you can explore some of them below.

Suspended scaffolding

As the name says, these structures need to be on a suspended level for accessing hard-to-reach spots. They are also essential when working on structures with irregular shapes and complex angles. Whenever you need to paint skyscrapers, repair windowpanes, or clean high-rise structures, you can use suspended scaffolding too.

Single and double scaffolding

Single and double scaffolding have been in use for the longest time possible. They are set around any structure type and for a variety of uses. You can use them to ease access or balance and position workers and help them to work safely. To keep the structures sturdy and robust, all technical requirements from the equipment manufacturers must in place.

Cantilever scaffolding

Cantilever scaffolding is another type that you can use for your different construction projects. Its standards need support from a series of needles that go through different holes in walls. Due to the nature of these structures, using them demands that you follow the necessary setup precautions and requirements too. Safety and precautionary checks must be in place too.

Steel scaffolding

There are also steel scaffolding structures for use in different applications, including construction. This type of scaffolding equipment is made from steel tubes fixed together using steel fittings or couplers. The significant advantages of steel scaffolding are the robustness, durability, and strength that they bring to every project.In addition, the structures are easy to assemble and disintegrate, which makes it easy to use them from one site to another.

Trestle scaffolding

With Trestle scaffolding, the platforms get their support from tripods or movable ladders. This type of scaffolding structure is mostly used during indoor construction works, including paint and repair works. The maximum height for these structures is usually five meters only.

Patented scaffolding

Patented scaffolding are made of steel too. They also come fitted with couplings and special frames. Patented scaffolding structures are readymade, which means you can buy them from a scaffolding shop and use them immediately. One of their benefits is that you can adjust them to fit your structures.
