What is scaffolding used for?

When constructing, maintaining, or repairing a building or other structure, scaffolding serves as temporary support for the work team and the supplies they need. It is often used to open passageways to places that would otherwise be inaccessible, and it is made to be solid enough to bear the weight of employees, equipment, and supplies. Scaffolding may be constructed from a range of materials, such as steel, aluminium, and wood, and it is simple and quick to create.

What are the 3 types of scaffolds?

  1. Supported scaffolding: This type of scaffolding is held up in ledgers and transoms fastened to the structure or building. The scaffold platform, which is normally built of wood or metal planks, has a secure foundation thanks to the ledgers and transoms.
  2. Suspended scaffolding: This type of scaffolding is supported by cables or ropes fastened to the top of the building or other structures. The scaffold platform, which is commonly built of metal or aluminium, is suspended below the ropes or cables.
  3. Mobile scaffolding: This type of scaffolding is built on wheels and intended to be transported easily from one area to another. It is also referred to as a rolling scaffold or a scaffold on wheels. It is frequently employed for building maintenance and repairs, as well as interior and outdoor painting.

Additional scaffolding designs include tube and clip, system, and single pole scaffolds.
