Professional Scaffolding Erection

Our service includes the provision of safe access to scaffolds that can be used by scaffolders in the erection process and workmen to get to the working platform, thus removing the need to climb the scaffold directly. Where it’s practicable, we always use ladder access and ladder bays or stairways in the scaffolding erection process. We adopt a unique system of operation which enables our scaffolding team to work away from and then back towards the means of access and emerge progressively, especially when they want to erect, alter, or dismantle the next lift.

Information about Eastbourne


How does scaffold work?

The main purpose of erecting a scaffold is to provide workers with a safe working platform and an access solution suitable enough to walk or work across. There is a European Standard for working scaffolds that sets out optimum performance requirements for safe use. These requirements are virtually independent of the material type from which the scaffold is constructed.

What is a hanging scaffold?

Hanging scaffold is a temporary work platform erected without any support from below, and which is fastened to an overhead structure by using rigid suspension members of fixed-length.

What is a birdcage scaffolding?

A birdcage scaffold simply means an independent scaffolding platform which consists of two or more rows of standards in opposite directions, connected by sturdy ledgers and transoms, as seen on construction sites across the country.

What is crash-deck scaffolding?

Birdcage or crash-deck scaffolding is a scaffolding structure used indoors to carry out repairs and home redecoration at ceiling heights. Because they're internal-deck scaffolds, birdcage and crash-deck are typically used for lighter tasks.

What is the swing stage scaffolding?

A swing stage scaffold is a scaffold platform that swings to and from a building just like a stage. Its structure is suspended by cables or ropes fastened to stirrups which are located at its double ends. For many reasons, the swing stage is the commonest type of suspended scaffolding used on construction projects.

What is a cantilever scaffold?

A cantilever scaffold is another scaffold which is usually erected to angle out from a building structure. The cantilever style of scaffolding eliminates the need for poles or frames to be erected in front of a building. So, cantilever scaffolds are often erected near balconies for easy access.

How long will it take to assemble a scaffolding platform?

Depending on the kind of scaffold required, it usually takes something from a few hours to two days to properly assemble a scaffold platform.

Do you need a government license to erect scaffolds?

If you're a scaffolder or builder who needs to erect a scaffold within your property, you won't need a license. If any part of the scaffold will extend up to the road or pavement outside your property, however, you must obtain a government license or permit from the local council officials.

How far can your scaffold platform extend out from the building?

Vertically: Every 20 ft. (6.1m) or less for scaffolding of fewer than 3 ft. (0.91m) in width; Every 26 ft. (7.9m) or less for scaffolding of more than 3 ft. (0.91m) in width. Horizontally: At each secured end; At intervals of not more than 30 ft. (9.1m) from just one end.

What’s the maximum safe amount of load a scaffold can carry?

To calculate this estimate, multiply 35 sq ft by 25 pounds/sq ft and it can be seen that the scaffold cannot carry over 875 pounds of materials. Thus, only 3 persons (each weighing 250 pounds) and another 125 pounds of tools or materials can be safely loaded onto the scaffold at the same time.

How safe is a scaffold?

If the scaffold is constructed by experts like our team of scaffolders, then we can answer the question positively. Professionally assembled scaffolds sit safely on any type of surface, be it an uneven ground, sloppy surface, or smooth ground. This is because there are some adjustable vertical components on the platforms which are part of such scaffolding systems. These adjustable components enable scaffolders to effectively compensate for ground irregularities.

Is the scaffolding required for roof works?

Projects which involve working on the roof also require scaffolding. Scaffolds aren't only designed to safeguard workers in this case, but also those walking or working on the ground. So, a scaffold with an edge fastened around the platform is essential if there is any risk of tools or materials falling from the roof to the ground.

At what height is a scaffold needed on a project?

For those in the general industry, the ideal height of a scaffold is 4 ft. above the ground level, while in the construction industry, the optimum height is 6 ft. above the lower level. Also, fall protection on a scaffolding platform is required at 10 ft.

What is the normal maximum height of a mobile scaffolding platform?

All free standing scaffolding structures must have a minimum height to base length ratio of 3:1. For general use as a mobile scaffold platform, the maximum height is 9m.

What is the maximum gap allowed between scaffold planking?

Government standards require that the spaces between scaffold planks and uprights or between the scaffold planks will be no more than 1" wide unless the employer can demonstrate that a wider gap is necessary for safety. Nevertheless, the structure must still be decked or planked, as fully as possible.

Is it advisable to use a ladder on a scaffold platform?

Using a ladder on a scaffold isn't advisable since the main reason for using scaffolding is to help reduce the risk of using ladders. Now, putting a ladder on the scaffold carries more risk than placing it on the ground as intended.

For how long can a scaffold stay up?

Most times, a scaffold platform remains in place as erected for months or years.

How high can workers ascend with a scaffold?

Once the working height is greater than 3 times the smallest width of the scaffold tower, workers must tie the scaffolding platform to the building structure at specific intervals for safety. A 5-ft wide scaffold platform is required to be fastened when the height exceeds 15 ft. high.

Can scaffold platforms be permanent?

Scaffolds are used to construct both semi-permanent and temporary structures ranging from fully-functional buildings to routine operations in the workshop.
