At Priority Scaffolding, Cambridge, we can erect a scaffold and temporary roof with tin sheeting for a wide range of needs, most often this is for loft conversions and renovation or refurbishment work to keep projects watertight.

A temporary roof scaffold is erected by fixing the steel probes together to form a large structure that completely covers the required area. The scaffold structure is then covered by a waterproof material such as monarflex. This protects the internal area from wind and rain, thereby allowing any building work to take place without the nuisance of the elements. Erecting a temporary roof scaffold whilst completing any construction can also save you money in the long run. Particularly poor weather when working on a building project can cause problems with materials and tasks which means that they must be replaced, take a longer time to complete or require re-doing, all of which cost you more money. A temporary roof scaffold is a perfect solution to avoiding these problems.

Single Scaffolding

Single scaffolds – otherwise known as a Bricklayers Scaffold, is predominantly used by bricklayers when they are repairing brickwork or building a new property. Single scaffold is best used on smaller buildings due to lack of manoeuvrability in regard to elevating or lowering the scaffold. Therefor single scaffolds are ideal for smaller buildings as they offer a stable base for any labourers, and they are easily erected to the required height.

Independent & Double Scaffolding

Double scaffolding – known colloquially as Masons Scaffold, is perfect for any buildings which are constructed from stone. With any stone building, it is very difficult to create holes in walls for support logs to keep the scaffold secure. Erected in a different way to a single scaffold, double scaffold makes use of an extra section of scaffolding as a support for the rest of the structure.

However, like single scaffolding, there is not a lot of manoeuvrability when it come to raising and lowering the platform, and as such should only be used on similar buildings or when working on a specific area of a building.

Some of our Scaffolding Cambridge work:

Support & Suspended Scaffolding

A suspended scaffold is unique to other scaffolding techniques in that the scaffold is secured at the top of the building rather than at the base. This means that there is no scaffold near the ground to cause inconvenience for vehicles and passersby.  As such this form of scaffolding is highly useful for tall buildings, especially when the building is on a busy road.

The scaffold is suspended from your roof using ropes or wires. This means that the platform can easily be raised or lowered as needed and can be used for a wide range of tasks from repairs to renovations.

Roof Edge Protection Scaffolding

When undertaking any type of construction work the safety of any workers is of paramount importance. That’s why at Priority Scaffolding specialises in edge protection. We can install a variety of edge protection frameworks depending on what material the fixed structure is made from.

Edge protection does exactly what the name suggests by erecting a barrier around any edge that carries risk of falling. This helps to prevent any accidents on the construction site.  Priority Scaffolding can erect any scaffold with edge protection as well as installing edge protection on existing scaffold structures.

Safety Scaffolding – Birdcage & Crash Deck Scaffolding

Crash deck and birdcage scaffolding are useful for completing any indoor renovation or repair work, (this scaffold can be used outdoor if needed), particularly when working in a building with a high roof placement.

As crash deck and birdcage scaffolding are predominantly used for internal work, they tend to be made from a lighter material that regular scaffold, this makes crash deck and birdcage scaffolding relatively easy and quick to erect and dismantle, however, this should still be completed by a professional scaffolder as there are certain requirements that must be met to comply with Health and Safety standards.

Birdcage scaffolding is erected by arranging standards at regular intervals – a maximum of 2.5 metres apart – then tied together using a grid of transoms and ledgers. The top level is then boarded over and secured to create the working platform for labourers. A birdcage scaffold should also offer an enclosed working space for any tradesmen, keeping them safe from falling through any gaps in the scaffold.

Cantilever Scaffolding

Cantilever scaffolding is erected by using steel poles attached to the base of the structure, acting as support for the platform above. As the steel support poles are angled from the base outwards, very little space is taken up on the ground meaning that you are not causing an inconvenience to anyone on the street level. As such this form of scaffolding is very useful if your building is located on the main road. As the platform is elevated and secured away from the road, you are creating a safe environment for labourers to working, minimising the risk of the structure being hit by a vehicle.
