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 install a variety of edge protection frameworks dependent on what material the structure is.
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 to complete any indoor renovation or repair work. (you can use this scaffold outdoor if needed), particularly when working in a building with a high roof placement.
Because crash deck and birdcage scaffolding are predominantly for internal work, they are usually erect with a lighter material. This makes crash deck and birdcage scaffolding relatively easy and quick to erect and dismantle. However, this should be complete by professional scaffolders due to the requirements to comply with Health and Safety standards.
Birdcage scaffolding is erect by arranging standards at regular intervals. A maximum of 2.5 metres apart – then tied together using a grid of transoms and ledgers. We then lay boards over the scaffold and secure them 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 scaffold is erect with use of steel poles which attach to the base of a 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. The platform is elevated and secured away from the road. Creating a safe environment for labourers to work, minimising the risk of the structure being hit by a vehicle.
