Scaffolding is the foundational part of construction projects. They are used to carry the weight of workers and their materials while ensuring they can work at great heights during a building’s construction or maintenance. At Starr Industries, we provide many types of scaffolding to meet your project objectives. Here are the main types of scaffolding.
Wooden and Bamboo Scaffolding
Wooden and bamboo scaffoldings are some of the most affordable types of scaffolding. They are usually used in Asia as they are highly flexible, environmentally friendly, and easily accessible. Wooden scaffolding is usually made of pre-cut lumber which is a cheaper alternative to steel. Bamboo scaffolding is widely used in Hong Kong to build the tallest buildings as it’s also commonly found.
Tube and Clamp Scaffolding
Tube and clamp scaffoldings are a type of scaffolding that is simple and highly popular as assembly and disassembly are easy. They usually comprise tubes and clips. Erecting the scaffolding only requires the tubes to be linked together alongside the clamps. The flexibility of this assembly allows it to be made in different shapes, which is highly beneficial for buildings with irregular shapes. It’s also able to resist natural wear and tear, especially helpful in countries with winter or harsh weather.
Systems scaffolding is one of the most intricate types of scaffolding, consisting of pre-engineered parts that fit together in a systematic way. Systems scaffolding consists of multiple types of scaffolding, such as stair scaffolding and Haki scaffolding.
Stair scaffoldings allow employees to move up and down through a series of staircases, providing easy navigation without jeopardizing a worker’s safety. They can support the weight of materials and workers alike.
Haki scaffoldings are like stair scaffolding, except that they are lighter and highly adaptable. They also have lesser parts compared to other scaffolding systems.
Kwikstage scaffoldings consist of five parts only, making them easy to set up and tear down. Non-slip platforms and multiple guard rails can help make them safer and sturdier to work on. The Kwikstage scaffoldings are highly used in Australia and the UK.
Suspended or Swing Set Scaffolding
Suspended or swing set scaffoldings are the type of scaffoldings that are suspended by a cable system, enabling the platforms to adjust to different heights. They are a good alternative to tall structures to lift heavy weights or making small improvements that may not require major equipment investments.
Mast Climbing Scaffolding
Mast climbing scaffolding is a type of scaffolding that allows a mast climber to traverse various heights on stable mast structures. They are often used to lift heavy loads.
Frame & Brace Scaffolding
This type of scaffolding is very light and can be set up with relative ease. However, the frame and brace scaffolding may not be able to support and carry heavy weight the way other system scaffoldings may be able to. They are often used in small-scale projects like residential and commercial building constructions and comprise multiple frames and planks. Being lightweight also allows it to be transported and deployed quickly, having the mobility aspect.
