How to choose the facade scaffolding?

Braces and platforms are used to increase stiffness. The facade scaffolding is very versatile. They are used for external works on the facades of buildings. It is perfect for frequent changes of the length of the platforms and the height of the frames. When choosing it, one should pay attention to several aspects and parameters that determine its reliability and stability, as well as its applicability.

Load on the facade scaffolding

This is a key factor that we should take into account when choosing a scaffolding. The maximum load is the weight the scaffold can support. Most often it is 200 kg / m2 (2kN / m2), although there are also those where the load is smaller or greater. This is the optimal value for safe use of the facade scaffolding. If you want to save, you can choose a scaffolding with a lower load, but knowing that it will be much less useful.

Scaffolding dimensions

The height of the scaffolding determines the possibility of using it for specific works. If the building is high, the scaffolding must also meet this parameter. We always adjust it to the conditions in which the works will be carried out. Currently, there are systems on the market that can be installed without any additional static calculations, up to 64m. The width of the platforms is also important, which affects the safety and comfort of the work carried out. In addition, that determines the possibility of maneuver and freedom of movement on the scaffolding. The optimal width of the platform is 70 cm, but they can be 60 cm, and sometimes even more than 100 cm. The length of the platform is within 0,74 – 3,0 m.

Fixing method

The scaffolding assembly should be easy, but it is precisely this that is of great importance for the stability of the structure. Not everyone can take on this task, but only qualified and trained people. It is important that the scaffolding is on a profiled and stabilized surface. As for the structure inclination, it should not be greater than 1%. Handrails are used for platforms located higher than 1 m. We also pay attention to the scaffolding geometry. The maximum load determines the longitudinal spacing of the frames and the width. The service load will be greater if there are more tools and building materials on the scaffolding. In order to stabilize the scaffolding better, we need to anchor it to the building facade. Metal structures should be grounded and additionally equipped with lightning rods.

The individual façade scaffolding structures differ mainly in the maximum load, dimensions, structure and components, as well as the mounting options. We always adjust the scaffolding to the works carried out, to the height and width of the building, as well as the ground directly next to it.
