Tips and guides to help you find the right scaffolding

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right scaffolding for your job

1. What is scaffolding?

Scaffolding is a temporary structure assembled during construction or building maintenance to support workers in safely accessing higher platforms for light and heavy duty projects. Scaffolding must meet strict safety requirements and regulations as failure to do so could result in serious injury or death. Scaffolds are available for hire in various supportive types depending on size and weight of material load, and worker requirements.


2. What are the different scaffolding types I can hire?

iSeekplant offers five different types of scaffolding hire suppliers across Australia.


3. What is a mobile scaffold?

Mobile scaffolding is used in construction as temporary support platforms with wheels for easy transportation. Easy transportation of mobile scaffolds is useful for plastering and painting projects. Mobile scaffolding can be easily assembled with coupler and tubes, modular scaffolds, and forged frame. Safety measures of mobile scaffolding include securing the frame with diagonal and horizontal braces, ensuring the braces are securely attached, and ensuring the wheels are sturdy with safety locks.


4. What is a tower scaffold?

Tower scaffolding is similar to mobile scaffolding as tower scaffolding is also used in construction as temporary support platforms with wheels for easy relocation. Tower scaffolding stands independently on four vertically connected standards usually made from aluminium, but with steel options also available. Safety measures of tower scaffolding include increasing stability with an extra, short stabiliser bay or outriggers.
