What can I use scaffolding for?
Scaffolding is generally used for easy access to areas of a building that would normally hard to reach. Roofs & high walls are the main reason why scaffolding is almost essential with all large-scale construction projects. Whether you’re renovating a building or repairing a roof on a warehouse, scaffolding is a vital service. There aren’t many other alternatives that will provide such easy access. Scaffolding allows the workers safe access to where they need to be, making sure they aren’t precariously walking on top of roofs etc. Check It make sure that all scaffolding erected is done so with the strictest adherence to HSE regulations.

What type of scaffolding do I need?
The type of scaffolding you use depends on the requirements of your project. Depending on your needs, your scaffolding will change to accommodate your specific demands. There’s a range of scaffolding we can put in place. Working with our clients, we’re able to design & build your ideal scaffold that’s safe & cost effective.
Scaffolding provides access to areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. For any work carried that is above ground level, scaffolding is almost a must. It allows workers to safely work on the interior/exterior of a building on a solid structure. Whether it’s refurbishment work or construction, scaffolding goes hand in hand with any commercial or industrial project.
Types of scaffolding:
Scaffolding can be made from a range of different materials. Aluminium is a popular metal due to its weight bearing strength & it’s lightweight. It’s Aluminium weight that makes it such an appealing material as it’s much easier to load, transport and work with. Compared with steel, Aluminium is a much lighter alternative that has its benefits. Steel is still heavily used however its uses are for more industrial purposes. Depending on your project, our team will decide on which materials are better suited.
Safety is the main priority in our service, which is how a lot of decisions are made when we’re designing your scaffold. If your site is in a particular area that suffers from high winds, we may opt for a heavier scaffold in order to ensure absolute safety. Our specialists have had decades of experience, so they understand the different requirements different site conditions will bring. With so much knowledge about the different types & suppliers of scaffolding, scaffolding parts and supplies, training scaffolding, scaffold, regulations etc, they are definite specialists in the field.
Duty of care:
As a site/project manager, it’s your duty of care to ensure that labourers are given a safe environment to work in. Scaffolding in Edinburgh isn’t something we take likely, so it’s important that we adhere to all regulations. This encompasses the provision of equipment that offers protection against accidents. Making sure that you’re providing your workers with quality scaffolding is vital.
Our designers work carefully making sure that all designs are compliant with the appropriate regulations. Our CAD software also has systems in place to ensure that all of our designs are fully compliant to NASC Guidelines including SG4:15 and TG:20. This software is one of the quickest & easiest ways we can design your scaffolding.
Our scaffolders thoroughly check all scaffolding built, inspecting every single component that is used. We carry out regular inspections on our materials to ensure that no damaged/compromised materials are being loaded & used.
