How the scaffolding is manufactured

First and foremost – technical documentation

The production of even the simplest scaffolding of the most standard shape cannot be started without the preparation of the technical documentation. The documentation should contain information on what protections have been used, what materials and methods of assembly. The documentation contains basically everything that can be said about a given scaffolding. It is worth knowing that the documentation should not only be created, but above all, it should be used when unfolding and assembling the scaffolding.

Selection of individual scaffolding elements

The next step is to choose good-quality components for the scaffolding. It is important that the elements are resistant to all kinds of damage – both mechanical and caused by excessive heat or frost – the elements should also be resistant to UV radiation. In addition, you also need to pay attention to the dimensions and shapes of individual parts so that everything fits together. Everything must be made to measure – otherwise it will not be approved for use.

Facade scaffolding

Such scaffolding can be much higher, which makes it better for the construction of taller buildings. It is worth knowing that such scaffolding should be anchored to the walls of the building to increase its rigidity and static. Moreover, such scaffolding is often confirmed by special certificates – which are granted by research and inspection institutions. Thanks to this, you can be sure about the safety of their use. It is also worth mentioning that the entire structure is rigid – which allows for quick assembly and disassembly.

Joining the scaffolding elements?

However, the scaffolding components themselves are only part of what is needed for the production of the entire scaffolding to be carried out from A to Z – connections are still needed. When it comes to connectors, the most important thing to pay attention to is their quality and the material they are made of. You cannot choose connectors that have been deformed or that have cracks – because they are not safe to use. It is also worth calculating the load that such a single connector can withstand.

Final assembly of the entire scaffolding

Finally, all the scaffolding needs to be assembled to check if everything fits together. It is also important to check the strength of the entire structure. All measurements must be made extremely carefully. You need to ensure that the scaffolding complies with health and safety standards.

Creating a scaffolding is a multi-step process

Due to the fact that scaffolding is a multi-stage process, it is always possible to detect errors at each stage – which increases the safety of using the whole. It is worth emphasizing, however, that no scaffolding will be used unless it is checked and approved by a health and safety worker.
