Plus much, more! Please give us a call, as we can erect any type of scaffolding on request.
The types of scaffolding we can erect are:-
INDEPENDENT SCAFFOLDING -
Independent scaffolding is the most common type scaffold and can be erected on the majority of properties in the UK. Independent scaffolding can be erected on domestic homes for painting, decorating, building, renovations, maintenance and roof works. Independent scaffolding can also be erected on all types of commercial, leisure and Industrial premises/properties, internally and externally. An independent scaffold consists of a double row of standards, with each row parallel to the building. The inner row is set as close to the building as is practicable. The distance between the lines of standards should be the minimum necessary to accommodate the required number of boards and toe boards.
ACCESS SCAFFOLD TOWERS:-
An access tower scaffold can be incorporated into many different types of scaffolding platforms to provide access to an unreachable area such as a chimney stack or over a conservatory.
Edge protection handrails are used for providing a safe place of work whilst working on roofs or slab edges. There are many different uses for edge protection handrails including providing a double handrail and triple handrail as per current regulations to create a safe working environment for the construction of new built warehouses or for re-roofing flat roofs. With the industrial type of edge protection handrails to steel frame warehouses the scaffolding is usually fixed using steel clamps off the existing steel columns with the double handrail positioned at the correct heights to allow the roofing contractor to install the new roof covering. With this option an access tower will be erected for the roofing contractor to access the roof level.
BIRDCAGE-SCAFFOLDING/LAYDOWN SCAFFOLDING -
A birdcage scaffold consists of a mass of standards arranged at regular intervals in parallel lines, usually evenly spaced apart. These standards are laced together with a grid of ledgers and transoms at every lift height. The top lift is boarded to form the access platform for work on ceilings and soffits, e.g. fix lighting, ventilation or sprinklers over an inside area.
Generally agreed to mean the foundation for a scaffold erected on a pitched roof, when chimneys are to be repaired. Roof saddles are generally erected when minor repairs are made, e.g. replacing chimney pots, or re - pointing etc.- A safe means of access or egress must always be provided, and this will usually comprise an access tower with walkway onto scaffold.
STACK SCAFFOLD -
This type of scaffold, because of the position of the chimney, requires an access scaffold.• Roof stacks are erected where more substantial repairs are required i.e. demonstration and/or rebuilding of chimney in situation where the stack is in such a position as to make the erection of a saddle scaffold impracticable.
SUSPENDED SCAFFOLD -
Suspended scaffolds are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high rise buildings, industrial plant, bridges and other large structures
TEMPORARY ROOF SCAFFOLDS -
A temporary roof scaffold is a scaffold structure used to cover a building during bad weather to allow internal works or roof works to take place.
When you need a temporary roof over your scaffold, Mega Scaffold (UK) Ltd has the solution. The Temporary Roof System is quick to erect and can be built on Traditional scaffolding. Constructed from high strength aluminium beams with a steel framework the Temporary Roof System can achieve spans in excess of 25m. The Temporary Roof System can be used on standard 450mm aluminium beams or the deeper 750mm aluminium beams.
Protection fan scaffolding is a structure that extends from the perimeter of the scaffold to protect people from falling objects and debris.
The cantilever scaffold is a type of scaffolding, that is attached to the main structure at one end and cantilever balanced. It's set up like a plank or diving board and can be used for single level projects.
Detailed/specialized-CAD/Smart scaffolder-drawings & quotations:-
Scaffold design is used when it is not a basic scaffold construction or if the scaffolding is a specialist piece of scaffold like a temporary roof or support scaffold.
Scaffold design is used to give the contractor any guideline drawings and advice notes when erecting a specialist piece of scaffold that may be a temporary roof with a large span or a support scaffold that has to be designed to take an enormous amount of loadings or pressure. The scaffolding design is discussed and drawn up before the contract starts, giving us and the customer an exact drawing with calculations of what scaffolding will be erected and how. The design scaffold is then erected to the drawings and then handed over once completed.
