The Metal Store is one of the leading online suppliers of scaffolding tube in the UK.
What are scaffolding tubes and what are they used for?
Scaffold tubes, often referred to as scaffolding pipes and poles, are made of lengths of galvanised steel tube. Due to being cost-effective, strong and secure, scaffolding tubes are ideal for creating support structures in construction work.
The use of scaffold tubes is crucial when workers are required to be raised and supported on a temporary platform. Reasons for this could be the construction, renovation or repair on a building or piece of machinery.
Various structures can be built using scaffolding tubes. A few examples of these include single, doubled, cantilever and trestle scaffolding supports. These structures, and many more, can be achieved using standard steel scaffolding tube when used with the correct fittings.
Why create your structures using scaffold tubes?
Scaffold poles can be assembled and dismantled with ease and are simple to set up. When set up correctly, the scaffolding itself will not move or sway, creating a secure space that can be trusted.
Scaffolding tubes are highly resistant to strong winds and rain, remaining undamaged in the harshest weather conditions, allowing for safe and productive work to continue.
