In today’s hi tech world, it is no wonder that even scaffolding has risen to new levels. However, there are those jobs where traditional scaffolding is sufficient and the most cost effective scaffolding solution. As one of the most convenient and easy to assemble types of scaffolding, if the job is not too complex, traditional new build scaffolding is ideal.
Most often traditional scaffolding is set up on the job site with boards, tubes and connectors/fittings. When ordering the materials for this type of scaffolding, you must have specific measurements. Pipes are fitted into the boards where holes have been drilled and for those pipes that connect to each other, very specific fittings are utilised.
Tubes are typically cast from galvanised steel and aluminium. Of course, galvanised steel is sturdier and would most likely be used when the platform will carry heavier loads. Even so, the ease at which this type of scaffolding can be assembled on site makes it a perfect solution for those times when workers need to quickly access heights for a quick inspection and/or repair. During a new build, this happens a whole lot more frequently than you can imagine.
Perhaps the biggest difference between traditional new build scaffolding and newer, hi tech scaffolding is in the fact that most traditional scaffolding conforms to standardised sizes. You can still build scaffolding to your requirements but it will take some amount of assembling to do so. Newer, state-of-the-art customised scaffolding can conform to varied specifications a bit easier. Some of the materials in newer scaffolding are considered ‘space age’ products that are fabricated to be lighter in weight but equally as sturdy. To put this another way, lighter weight tubes and pipes can be more easily cut to shorter lengths which makes it simpler to customise.
Since scaffolding needs to bear a certain amount of weight and is designed to resist environmental factors, it is good to know that the Urban Scaffolding Solutions team is there to help design and assemble your equipment.
