What is scaffolding?
Scaffolds are short-term structures erected to keep workers safe on construction sites while providing access to heights. A scaffolding structure can be compared to a huge Meccano set because it consists of an arrangement of horizontal and vertical steel poles inlaid with wooden walkways. It also includes features like guardrails and ladders that increase security and accessibility. Scaffolding systems can be used in narrow passages and areas that are hard to reach (such as chimneys) because of their versatility and varying designs.

Why do you need scaffolding?
Under the new health and safety law in the UK, workers on construction sites must use scaffolding platforms for access to high-level jobs. This implies that ladders are only used for minor jobs, and scaffoldings are the legal requirements for major long-term projects. If you want to do jobs like the painting of external walls, roofing jobs, window replacements and fascias and so on, scaffolding is a must.
If you are constructing a new building or doing general renovations, then you have to make use of an access platform to reach parts in the building you can not easily assess. You can make use of this if you plan to work on roof tiles, chimneys or eaves. Scaffolding does the job of providing this access. Hiring and assembling scaffolding ensures maximum safety at your site. Scaffolding structures provide easy access to areas that are difficult to reach.
In addition, scaffolding allows your professionals to conduct work quickly and in a more efficient manner, which saves money and time. Scaffolding is particularly useful in projects where heavy materials like steel beams and mortar bricks are being used for construction. Before work commences, materials can be arranged on the scaffolding so the need to move the materials about is reduced.

How does scaffolding work?
Scaffolding is assembled using poles arranged vertically and horizontally to form the ultimate support pattern. Wooden plank walkways are then laid on these poles; they are called levels or lifts. If your project needs multiple levels or lifts, then more walking boards or horizontal poles are added, but this increases the price of the equipment and the scaffold installation takes longer.
For most scaffolds, access ladders and safety handrails are the standard. Scaffolds are assembled by scaffolding experts with the equipment and expertise to address any challenges that may affect safe usage of the scaffold. The flexibility of current scaffolding structures allows them to be used in confined spaces such as chimneys or in areas that are difficult to access.
What are the common uses for scaffold?
Because of the current amendment to health and safety legislation in the UK, tradespeople now have to use scaffold platforms and access equipment for all kinds of work at height projects – prolonged use of ladders is now restricted. This means scaffolding will be the new norm for scaffolders to use to reach elevated positions in building construction projects. Scaffolding typically makes the project site safer for work; it helps prevent accidents during renovation, decoration and construction on elevated structures. When working at height, scaffolding is your ideal choice because it prevents accidents like fall from heights.
Can anyone erect scaffolding?
Scaffolding structures must be designed, installed, and disassembled by professional scaffolders in compliance with industry health and safety regulations. The Work at Height regulations of 2005 enforces this rule. You void your insurance if the scaffolding system is assembled by untrained personnel. So, before hiring a scaffolding company, please ensure that they have the relevant experience and are highly trained.

Typically, scaffolding is usually hired for a fixed period (often four weeks), with an additional rental fee charged weekly following the fixed period. For long term projects, you may likely have to pay extra charges if the project extends beyond the anticipated time.
What are the elements that influence the price of scaffolding hire?
There are various factors which affect the price of scaffolding hire. For one, the project type will greatly affect the price. Some of those factors that influence scaffolding hire quote include:
- The dimensions of the scaffolding structure
- If a a scaffolding pavement license is required and its cost
- The number of scaffolding levels required
- The number of walkways to created on the lifts/levels
- The location of the project site
- If customised designs or access equipment are required
- If beams will be needed
Scaffolding hire cost increases as long as the scaffold remains standing. The best time to assemble scaffolding is at the start of the project. Remember to only choose a scaffolding company that can quickly deliver, and also schedule for the installation in advance. This saves you from spending money on scaffolding you are not making use of.
