A: Both aluminium and steel have their benefits. The biggest advantage of aluminium is its weight in comparison to steel, meaning that the scaffolding is quicker to erect and dismantle. It is best suited to those who only need the scaffolding for a short amount of time. Steel is stronger and more stable and thus more suited to difficult terrain, long periods of time and the winter months with hazardous weather. It is a lot heavier than aluminium and so takes longer to put up and take down.
A: Yes, scaffolding is fantastic in that it can sit on uneven ground thanks to its adjustable vertical components which allows us to tackle any irregularities in the ground. If you have any further or more in-depth questions please dont hesitate to contact our friendly expert team on 0800 088 6392
