Things You Should Know About Scaffold Hire

by Zoe Sewell Professional Blogger

Scaffolding is used in many places especially when there is a need for ample spaces to walk and to put the tools within reach. It saves a time and also increases productivity. There are different kinds of scaffoldings and each is used for different purposes. In general, if you are using scaffolding regularly, then you should consider buying it but if you will use only occasionally, then you should opt to scaffold hire so that there isn’t much additional cost. 

As it has been said above, there are different kinds of scaffolding which is used for different purposes. For example, there are mobile, fixed and hanging scaffolding. 

  • The mobile scaffolding has the added benefit of not requiring support from any other external structure. Hence, if you need to scaffold hire, where there’s no need for external support, then you should go for mobile scaffolding. The basic feature is that it is free from need of any other support. It also has the added benefit of quick assembly and mobility. Since it is mobile, it is easy to move from one place to another place with ease which is not the same case with other types of scaffold hire.
  • Fixed scaffolding may or may not need a support and depending upon these, the fixed scaffolding has been classified into two more types. The type of fixed scaffolding where, no support from any other external structure is needed, that type of fixed scaffolding is called independent scaffolding. But the other type of scaffold hire, the putlog scaffolding does require an additional support in order to provide a working platform. Does, depending upon the aspect about whether a fixed scaffolding may or may not need an external support from another structure, the fixed scaffolding has been divided into two types. One type is independent scaffolding where you do not need structure in order to provide the working platform but the putlog also do require external structure in order to provide a secure environment.
  • The hanging scaffolding is a suspended platform. It is used for various purposes such as washing windows in big buildings. The benefit of a hanging scaffold hire is that the whole platform could be raised or lowered depending upon the need. Thus, the hanging scaffolding is perfect for window washing which does require one to go up and down in order to wash the windows in various levels.


Safety factor: While you are going for a scaffolding hire, safety should be one of the primary aspects. If there isn’t enough safety factor, then there could be dangerous consequences. Hence, you should always gather more information about hiring a scaffold so that, you could be safe while using it. 

The budget may play a role in deciding to use a scaffolding. But even if you are tight on the budget, the safety should never be compromised as otherwise, there could be a fatal accident and thus lives could be lost. 

If you are planning to hire a scaffolding, then the best option for you is to go to a professional who has years of experience under their belt. There will be various local scaffolding suppliers but you should be careful while choosing one as the scaffolding might not give that much security. Only after a careful inspection, you should decide whether you want to go on with the one you are eyeing on or not. 

When choosing the right scaffolding you should ask other people who have experience and also search on the internet so that you can choose which scaffolding is best for your needs. Safety and durability should be your top priorities and you never compromise to save a few bucks.
