Scaffolding Towers

The Health & Safety Executive website says that a scaffolding tower is

“one way to prevent a fall when working at height.  The type of tower selected must be suitable for the work and erected and dismantled by people who have been trained and are competent to do so”.

This captures it perfectly.

Our priority will always be safety.  For those new to scaffolding platform and building work, there are always occasions when the builders or roofers need to work at height.  Often, it can be the case that you need more than one person to work on a particular task at the same time.  This is where the scaffolding tower comes in.

Aluminum scaffold towers are used to access height, conduct maintenance and carry out inspections of the roof and property.

The traditional ladder only goes so far but some jobs require a bigger approach that allows for more. 

Key benefits:

Stability
Height
Strength

Stability

Although it may seem like stating the obvious, the big advantage is that a scaffold tower has 4 legs. This means the worker has both hands free and doesn’t have to use one hand to keep a grip on the ladder. This means his or her balance is better and there is less probability of an accident.

Height

A second feature is that aluminium scaffolding towers can be built in a way that is higher-than-normal ladders will go. This means scaffolding towers are useful in situations where a ladder is not able to help. However, it must be taken into consideration that building your aluminium tower scaffolding higher means that if there is an accident, the consequences may be worse due to the added height. Falls from height are the single most common cause of death when it comes to workplace accidents, so safety is always paramount to us and the industry.

For this reason, guard rails are added to the tower to give workers something to hold on to. Often you can also see additional measures such as safety harnesses used.

Strength

One important feature of tower scaffolding is the number of support beams across the structure.  This provides the additional strength and rigidity required to make it a much safer tool to use for the project.  This matters massively when you are working outdoors & mobile scaffolding tower. There may be winds and the structure may wobble and so the additional support beams provide the crucial strength and that gives the workers and you the all-important peace of mind.

Another benefit of the support beams (cross beams) is that because the structure is so much stronger, you can carry up heavier equipment that ladders don’t usually allow. we are uses high-quality materials for large and mini scaffolding towers as our first priority is human safety.
