We work closely with our Scaffold designers to create bespoke scaffolding structures. From building scaffolding to bridges to walkways, we can design and implement bespoke scaffolding to your needs.

Require event scaffolding? No problem, our designers have experience within the Events sector and can send the detailed designs to our scaffolding team to complete your staging, grandstands or any other needs you may have.

Popular types of scaffolding

Single Scaffolding (Bricklayer’s Scaffolding): This is the simplest type of scaffolding and consists of a single row of vertical standards (uprights) placed parallel to the building’s wall. Horizontal ledgers connect the standards, and putlogs or transoms provide a platform for workers. Single scaffolding is commonly used for brickwork or stonemasonry.

Double Scaffolding (Mason’s Scaffolding): Double scaffolding is used when single scaffolding alone is not sufficient to support the structure. It involves two rows of vertical standards, with horizontal ledgers connected at different levels. The outer row is placed close to the wall, and the inner row is supported by the ground. Double scaffolding provides increased stability and strength.

Cantilever Scaffolding: Cantilever scaffolding, also known as needle scaffolding, is used when there is no ground support available or when work is being carried out on upper levels of a building. It consists of needles (horizontal members) that are supported by the floor openings or holes in the wall. Needles are anchored by tying them into the building structure or using counterweights.

Suspended Scaffolding: Suspended scaffolding is commonly used for tasks like window cleaning, painting, or repairs on tall buildings. It involves hanging platforms that are suspended from the roof or a higher level using ropes or chains. Workers can lower or raise the platform as needed. Suspended scaffolding offers flexibility in accessing different areas of a building.

Steel Scaffolding: Steel scaffolding is made of steel tubes and couplers. It provides high strength and durability, making it suitable for heavy-duty construction projects. Steel scaffolding is modular, allowing easy assembly and disassembly. It is commonly used in large-scale construction sites, bridges, and industrial projects.

System Scaffolding: System scaffolding is a modular type of scaffolding that uses prefabricated components like frames, braces, and connectors. It offers flexibility, quick assembly, and enhanced safety. Popular examples of system scaffolding include cuplock scaffolding and ringlock scaffolding. These systems provide versatility and are used in various construction applications.

Mobile Scaffolding: Mobile scaffolding, also known as rolling scaffolding or tower scaffolding, is designed with wheels or casters, allowing it to be easily moved from one location to another. It provides a convenient solution for projects that require frequent repositioning of scaffolding, such as painting, plastering, or maintenance work.
