Frame Scaffolding

Though there are many types of scaffolding systems, frame scaffolding is most commonly found on construction sites. Different configurations are usually available where frame scaffolding is concerned:

  • Sections that look like a ladder
  • Sections that are walk-through
  • Sections that contain a walk-through portal and ladders

With this type of scaffolding, connected by two crossed sections of support poles, two sections of the scaffold frame are set up. A square shape is used for the organization of support poles. To the top of the preceding sections, new sections are assembled. To help carry out the work of construction workers/builders, the sections eventually reach the desired height.

Starr Industries carries frame scaffolds and much more.

What Is Frame Scaffolding?

In the construction industry, one of the most commonly used scaffold systems is referred to as tubular metal frame scaffolding. Connected by crossed frames, this scaffolding consists of welded aluminum or steel frames which form a supportive framework. They are used to support scaffold platform systems such as scaffold planks.

For reference, the basic types of scaffolds include the following…

  • General scaffolds: This applies principally to personnel hoists, man lifts, etc. which are sometimes viewed as machinery or vehicles. Technically, however, as another type of supported scaffolds, they can also be included.
  • Supported scaffolds: Consisting of one or more platforms, supported scaffolds are just that – supported by loadbearing, rigid members like outriggers, frames, legs, polls, etc.
  • Suspended scaffolds: There are also suspended scaffolds which are, again, just that – suspended by some non-rigid, overhead support like ropes. They consist of one or more suspended platforms.

The Benefits of Frame Scaffolding

 Numerous advantages and benefits are offered by frame scaffolding. Some of these are as follows:

  • To support 20 K loads, shoring frames are specially engineered.
  • For businesses that frequently work at heights, this is an economical scaffolding solution.
  • To bridge between frames, from 8 feet up to 28 feet, heavy-duty trusses can be used.
  • Walk through and ladder frame configuration flexibility.
  • Giving workers more room to maneuver (and additional options), aluminum and steel planking in lengths from 2 feet to 10 feet can be used.
  • For any equipment, tools, or workers needed on the job, excellent support is provided by the sturdy design.
  • At the jobsite, labor and time are saved thanks to easy, fast, disassembly and assembly.

Applications of Frame Scaffolding

Also possibly referred to as staging or simply scaffold, the uses for frame scaffolding are many. To meet various project requirements, frame scaffolding systems are equipped with different kinds of steel props and steel walking boards. This provides added safety assurance, a sound working environment, and more. There are nets and dense handrails around the scaffolding to help prevent accidents.

For frame scaffolding, the most common application is that of construction sites.

It is perfect to use in general maintenance, masonry, and façade work such as flooring, claddings, restoration, and renovation due to its easy disassembly and erection.

For decorating projects and the building of houses, it can also be employed.

Frame scaffolding is efficient, reliable, and safe and offers a wide selection of tube sizes and frame lock types with robust steel tubing.
