Scaffold Tower Plans – The Basics

6m scaffold tower

For those building a new home or remodeling an old one, the 6m scaffold tower is a must have equipment that can be very useful in keeping construction on schedule and safe. Used properly, scaffolding is designed to provide safe access for workers to higher levels of a project, whether that be from the top of a building or from a ground floor level. Using scaffolds correctly and safely is essential for the protection of the workers as well as the integrity of the construction itself. For this reason, it is important that anyone who is considering purchasing one of these structures knows the basics about them so that they can be as best suited for their needs as possible.

 

The most important thing to know about a scaffold tower is that it is generally much higher than the actual height of the workers, which is why it is typically referred to as a ‘super scaffold’. The top of this high structure is usually made from either aluminum or steel and has a long rope attached to it at the top to help ensure that the workers are safely able to exit the work area safely and without incident. At the bottom of the scaffold is a landing, which is where the lifters will attach to and the rope will anchor them to the ground. Scaffold towers are typically used for jobs that require repetitive motion, such as scaffolding repair, scaffold erection, scaffold dismantling and similar tasks.

 

When buying a scaffold tower plans it is important to ensure that you are buying one from a reputable company that can provide all of the necessary materials and training to ensure the workers are well trained and can work safely within the Tower. Any scaffold that is used in construction projects should be inspected once they have been delivered and there should be no signs of damage or rust on them. All bolts and nuts should be checked to ensure that they are solid and that they work properly. It is also recommended that all bolts and nuts are pre-drilled so that if the workers do not use them correctly, the chance of them coming off is reduced. Pre drilling will also allow the scaffold to be installed much more effectively, meaning that the job will go much quicker.
