There are many different materials that could be used to create an aesthetically secure and safe scaffolding system to provide temporary structure support for maintenance or construction work The most popular are aluminum, steel, and timber.
While each has their own advantages in scaffolding businesses, we’ve chosen to use the steel in all our scaffolding services as part our scaffolding system due to many of the reasons listed below.
Sturdiness of scaffolding made from steel
Steel is one of the strongest and most durable materials for scaffolding, ensuring an uninjured and stable platform to work on.
It can stand up to the strain and stress that scaffolding has to endure due to the weight of equipment and employees and also the force it might feel from powerful winds.
It’s sturdy and strong against all that is to say that there’s no need to worry about the scaffolding breaking or becoming loose, put workers and passers-by at risk.
The steel scaffolding is long-lasting and tough.
Steel is very durable and is able to stand against the most severe weather conditions such as storms, heavy rain and snow.
It has therefore an extended life span than other materials and is able to last many years, and perform jobs with no damage. This makes it an environmentally sustainable option for scaffolding materials.
It is easy to put together and take down.
In comparison to other substances, steel is much easier to put together and requires shorter time to assemble – regardless of the size of the scaffolding needed. This allows scaffolding to be constructed at a speedier pace that, in turn, allows construction work to begin earlier.
When looking to buy scaffolding get in touch with the experts…
Once the work is completed then the scaffolding is removed quicker, which will ensure an overall high-quality construction project.
Steel is great for larger tasks.
As opposed to the timber-based scaffolding, steel scaffolding is able to be constructed at great heights , which allows us to complete tasks for larger construction projects with no limitations.
It is also a good option for double or single scaffolds, based on the mass of the building materials.
Steel is more sustainable
One of the less well-known benefits of Steel scaffolding is the fact that it’s an eco-friendly material particularly because of its sustainability.
While timber is the direct consequence of deforestation, the industry utilizes primary energy efficiently it conserves resources that are not renewable and reduces the amount of waste that is generated.
We are proud to say that we are a steel using scaffolding company as it enables us to deliver efficient, environmentally-friendly and, most importantly, safe scaffolding on jobs of all sizes.
