Types of scaffolding you can hire

Whether you’re scaffolding your house to painting the window frame, to replacing that broken roof tile, no job is too big or small to use scaffolding. Safety is always number one priority! Let Direct Scaffolding make sure you are safe.

Tower Scaffold

A tower scaffold consists of four vertical standards that are connected both longitudinally and transversely. It can also be two frames in plan that are connected transversely that creates a scaffold of one bay.

Independent Scaffolds

Independent scaffolds are constructed by two parallel rows of standards that are tied by transoms, these bridge the width of the scaffold and ledgers. A gap is left to allow for the continuation of the masonry.

Bridge Scaffolds

A scaffold bridge is the way to be able to work on an area that cannot be supported from directly underneath it by a scaffold tower. These will be situated at either end of the bridging. 

Cantilever Scaffolds

Cantilever scaffolds are what are used in order to overcome things that are obstructing and blocking the area where the scaffolding needs to be erected. 

Chimney Scaffolds

Chimney scaffolds make it possible to level off and create a raised platform for working on chimneys that are found on slanted roofing. This is multi pointed and adjustable to make this achievable.

Edge Protection Scaffolds

Edge protection scaffolds ensure the safety of anyone on a roof. By installing guardrails, handrails and scaffolding it stops there being a chance of people or materials from falling.
