What is the best material for scaffolding?

Scaffolding is commonly made from a few classic materials. You should note that the materials used in scaffolding depend on the part of the structure you are looking at.
We sell scaffolding tube that is made out of galvanised steel. This is a special type of steel that has been coated with a thin layer of zinc, providing a protective barrier against corrosion. This resilience to the elements is especially important when it comes to scaffolding, as structures are often placed outside.
Other materials used within quality scaffolding structures include pressed steel, drop forged steel, heavy-duty structural timber and heavy-duty plastic (for debris netting and covers).

Do you need training to use scaffolding?

Scaffolding is often created to access equipment and hard-to-reach parts of a construction project – for example, the roof of a building. Because of this, proper training is mandatory for anyone intending to use scaffolding. This ensures individuals understand the correct procedures for safe erecting, dismantling and working on scaffolding structures.

Can scaffolding be used in bad weather conditions?

One of the reasons we take such care in ensuring our scaffolding supplies & accessories are made from the right materials, is because of weather conditions. In the UK, weather can be unpredictable. That’s why our scaffolding supplies are made from resilient galvanised steel or other tough materials.
While scaffolding will withstand the elements, especially with regular maintenance checks, that doesn’t mean it’s always safe to work on. In especially bad weather conditions such as rain, snow or high winds – the risk of accidents will heighten.

What are the most important accessories for scaffolding?

Some of the most important scaffolding accessories include:
Gin wheel rope – this is a pulley device that attaches to scaffold fittings. It allows you to lift or lower heavy equipment and materials. It’s an important part of scaffolding that allows for the safe movement of materials.
Scaffold netting – debris netting is crucial for enhancing safety on construction sites. It allows you to catch falling debris, tools or materials to prevent them from causing injury or structural damage. Scaffold netting helps to protect project workers and members of the general public.
Scaffolding tools and spanners – these handy and specialised tools are designed to build or dismantle scaffolding. High quality spanners, ratchets and magnetic spirit levels are important to build scaffolding.
