We have long span beams that go over all obstacles, including a conservatory.

Yes, we can supply you with a ladder upon request. An internal ladder is always required with any scaffold system. We ensure the ladder is free from the ground, uses the correct angle, we secure the brace at the bottom and attach it to the top of the structure.

If you job runs longer than 6-8 weeks, steel scaffolding is the cheaper option. Aluminium scaffolding is usually recommended for jobs that run for a few hours or weeks.

Our team of scaffolders in Brighton have CISRS cards. It is proof that they trained for and passed all assessments and qualifications required for scaffolding jobs in Brighton. This also provides peace of mind that your installation will be safe and efficient.

Yes. Ground which is not flat or even isn’t a problem. Our scaffolding systems integrate components to ensure stability on uneven grounds.

Generally, you don’t need a permit. It is only required if the structure is on a footpath or road and if it runs for up to 12 weeks. Ace Scaffolding will obtain all necessary permits on your behalf from the local council, and this usually takes 10 days.

We prefer if you give us a week’s notice for simple projects and two weeks for complex projects but in most cases, our contractors will begin work as soon as possible. Work will be delayed if you have overhead cables that need to be shrouded. A delay will also occur if the scaffold is going to be erected in a public area, highway or pavement, in which case we will need to obtain a permit from the council before we start work.

We require a 50% deposit on the date you make the booking and the balance at the time of installation.

Simply call us on 01273 257201, send us an email or complete the contact us form to request a quote. We’ll assign you a quote manager who will contact you to discuss your project.

The result of the inspection is used to create a no-obligation quote, and the entire process takes 24 hours to complete.

It is difficult to have set prices as projects differ in scope, size and complexity. We are happy to provide a guideline and a formal quote.

Steel or tubular scaffolding is manufactured from an aluminium tube or galvanized steel and connected by couplers or steel fittings, it is easy to assemble and dismantle and steel scaffolding also has better resistance to fire, whilst remaining more robust and durable. The downside is that it’s more expensive than bamboo, it requires skilled labour to assemble and requires regular maintenance. But the benefits of steel outweigh the initial cost, and it is also considered the safest option for workers.

Bamboo Scaffolding has been popular in Asia for thousands of years. It in use in places such as Hong Kong, China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India. The benefits include the fact that it is environmentally friendly, has a better tensile strength and is much cheaper than steel.

Conversely, bamboo has diminished in use due to a shortage of material and labour and recent safety concerns. Organic scaffolding such as bamboo also weakens over time.

There is a lot of confusion when people hear the term “scaffolding”. In education, it refers to multiple instructional strategies a teacher uses to move students towards a stronger understanding and improved independence in the learning process. Think of it as temporary support a teacher uses to help a student acquire the skills they need to achieve a higher level of comprehension.

The same is true of scaffolding, in that they are both “temporary support”. In construction, scaffolding is a temporary platform to support workers and materials working on a construction site.

Scaffolding inspections are critical to ensuring workers’ safety. It should be carried out at regular intervals and performed by an experienced person. Our inspectors are CISRS-registered and they received training from the manufacturer of the specific scaffold they are inspecting.

Ace Scaffolding inspects scaffolding before first time use, at least once a week and after a situation that could endanger the safety of the installation such as a storm or bad weather. We ensure that we follow all Work at Height Regulations in the UK at all times.

  • Missing fall safety system
  • Unsecured scaffolding
  • Poor quality materials used in erecting the scaffold
  • Insufficient maintenance
  • Poor construction
  • Severe weather conditions
  • Lack of platform strength
  • Poor platform planking
  • A platform that is narrow
  • Clutter on the platform
  • Unsafe structure design

Ace Scaffolders Brighton takes safety seriously. We ensure that our workers, your construction site and anyone in the vicinity is safe whilst erecting your scaffold, and we use high quality equipment during installations.

A poorly designed scaffold has disastrous consequences for everyone involved. We train our employees to recognise a damaged structure and to check for missing safety components such as guardrails, toe boards and planks. We keep the site clean and organised at all time and ensure the scaffold is erected by trained professionals, only.

All contractors in Brighton erecting scaffolding must be qualified, and trainees must be supervised by qualified personnel. They are required to have received training equal to the scaffolding job they are performing.

At the very least, a crew should include a qualified scaffolder who has received training from the Construction Industry Scaffolders Registration Scheme (CISRS). Alternatively, they should receive training from a supplier or manufacturing for that specific scaffolding job.

For smaller construction, such as domestic scaffolding, we suggest a height of 1.8 metres to allow access for a standard height person. This also allows space for painting and maintenance work. Ace Scaffolding will tailor the system to meet your project needs.

Depending on the type of scaffolding, it takes anywhere from 2 to 48 hours to assemble your scaffold.

Over half of the scaffolding incidents on construction sites involve falls from an elevated height. Fall protection should be placed on all scaffolding and suspended 10 ft. above ground.

Bad planking or unsecured planking is another reason. If the plank is not properly secured, it could cause the worker to fall. Planks should not be overloaded. The right grade of lumber should be used and the finished work thoroughly inspected.

Getting struck by debris or falling tools. Guardrails protect the worker from falling and materials from hitting people below.

Being electrocuted by electric lines. We ensure that our contractors in Brighton maintain secure clearance from power lines. At least 10ft. for voltage under 50 kilovolts and 10.4 inches for every volt over 50 kilovolts.

Single Scaffolding is also referred to as Brick Layer’s Scaffolding. It is used by brick masons. It consists of a single framework of standards fixed to the ground about 2.4m apart.

Suspended scaffolding is used for repair work, plastering and painting. The working platform is suspended from rooves and supported by wire ropes or chains.

Supported scaffolding is the most common structure in Brighton. You will see it in many construction sites that require elevation. It is also considered the safest type of scaffolding.

Birdcage scaffolding is a simple design used for one level constructions only. It is easily assembled, making it the perfect option for contained projects.

Cantilever Scaffolding or needle scaffolding is used when the structure can’t be built from the ground up. It is supported by needles made from timber and fixed to the window or wall corners.

Mobile scaffolding or trestle scaffolding is made from lightweight materials, making it easy to move around. It is used for construction projects where lots of work will be done in one space.

The scaffold in building construction is a temporary platform that elevates and supports both materials and workers during a repair, cleaning and construction of a machine or structure. It includes several plants of a convenient length and size with different types of support depending on the use of the scaffold.

It is an integral part of any large construction project and has been in use since the first buildings were constructed. Scaffolding serves multiple purposes including the support of heavy loads of building materials such as blocks, cast-in-place concrete and bricks.

Temporary roofing solutions are also an option in emergencies such as storm related damage and other accidents that that could cause unexpected and necessary repairs. A temporary roof would give you time to avoid panic repairs that would end up costing more money. You would have time to properly assess the damage and decide on the best course of action to take. Such solutions, however, do not last for too long, so, do not relax until you get a lasting solution to your roofing problem.

A wet patch acts as moisture control. A good one of high quality can stick to wet surfaces and keep out moisture. It has setting temperatures of above 5 degrees Celsius and is ideal for localized damp or wet areas to act as a temporary seal. It can be used in any kind of weather; dry, hot, wet, or cold. A wet patch can be used for holes and cracks even in the rain or under water.

Leak stops are temporary solutions designed for flat rooves. If there is a flat roof leak, a leak stop is applied to the area affected. The material is powdery at first and when it touches the water, it uses the water path to carry itself into the hole or damaged space in the roof. At this point, it solidifies and acts temporarily as a plug or dam, keeping water out. It can be tricky, however, depending on the size of the hole or how serious the problem is. Leak stops general last a few months and so the need to find a more permanent solution is important.

Temporary roofing is a good idea if you’re still in the process of gathering funds for your roofing repairs and would like some time to do so and at the same time reduce the chances of further damage, then a temporary roof would be a great option for you. It is important, however, to keep in mind that temporary roofing lasts for about 6 months to year and how far they can go is largely dependent on how serious the external environmental factors are.

If you don’t get a permanent solution done in time, it may mean you would have to reinvest in a temporary roof to keep your building protected until you’re completely ready. You can ask your service provider, who would be well versed with your weather conditions about just how long you can keep the roofing solution without needing a change.

You can start by making sure they are registered and licensed to provide temporary roofing solutions. You also want to know about how qualified their staff are. If you’re not satisfied with the answers you get from them, a good way to check how good they are is ask questions about them. Hopefully, they’ve left good lasting impressions and can be recommended by people. This would also help if they deliver poor services; you would know to find more reliable service providers.

The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation and Health and Safety Executive has expectations regarding temporary rooves. There are also important industry standards to be met. You can ask about their procedures, safety regulations, routine checks and inspections, all of which you can weigh against industry standards before making any major decisions on your project.

When it comes to roofing and related things, it is best to let it be handled by professionals. Even roofing repairs ought to be handle by professionals. Trying to erect a temporary roof yourself may cause an accident or increase the damage you may be trying to cover. Ensure to seek professional opinion and if it is something you can handle yourself, then they would advise you on how best to go about it; best resources and safety precautions you would need to take.

Other than obvious pointers like a leak during rain, a hole or a tear in the roofing system, you can ask your roofing provider to give you a list of things to look out for that could be signs of a problem with the roofing system. It would also help to know what you or others working within the area could do before the professionals arrive.

You do not always have to wait until you see an obvious problem or a possible problem listed on such lists before you reach out to your roofing providers if you feel there might be a problem. If you notice anything at all out of place or strange with the temporary roofing system, give them a call and have them come look at it.

No, it does not take long to dismantle a temporary roof. Just as you can have a temporary roofing system up in no time, you can also have it taken down in no time. Dismantling is best done professionally, so do not attempt to do it yourself.

No, it doesn’t take long to erect a temporary roof, which is why it is a preferred option. They can be set up in very little time, so, you won’t have to worry about waiting for a long time before you can continue with your project. It is advisable, however, to get an estimated time frame from your service provider so that you can fit it into whatever plans you may have.

The entire process, even with any delays, is still not time consuming at all and in some cases, would require little input from you outside of supervision.

Yes, you can. Temporary roofing is not always for just full covering. While this can be provided and has its benefits, if you need to cover only specific areas of your building, that can be done as well. You only need to discuss your needs with your roofing solution providers to know what can be and what cannot be done.

No, your temporary roof provider should take care of all of your assembly and dismantling needs. Even if you do not use the roof for as long as initially estimated, it still would not be your job to take it down. It is also important that you do not attempt to do it yourself so as to not endanger lives and equipment.

Temporary rooves are not only beneficial because they provide weather and waterproof. They are also beneficial because they provide well protected work spaces as well. People won’t have to work exposed to bad weather. They won’t also have to suspend work in such situations; you could have a dry working area and improve productivity levels.

Just ensure that you educate anyone working beneath a temporary roof about safety precautions they would need to follow.

There are many flexible temporary roofing solutions to choose from. If you think you’d need to make such changes during the course of your project, you can discuss it with your temporary roofing provider to figure out how best to go about it. Do not attempt to do it yourself at any time, to avoid accidents and expensive damage costs.

Big or small, temporary roofing solutions are available to a wide range of building sizes. Whether the project is residential or commercial, you can be sure to get a solution to fit its size. Even if you have an unusually big or small project, there would be various options available to you, including designing a custom made temporary roof to fit your need. Don’t worry about the size, just talk to the right people to help you make the right choices.

Every project has different needs in various areas including temporary roofing. There really is no one size fits all plan so, not being sure is no problem at all. You can discuss the kind of project you’re doing and its requirements with experts who would then help you figure the best temporary roofing solutions available to you.

You should ask questions, if you have any about what sort of protection you’d be getting with their temporary roofing solution, what your obligations would be at different stages like assembling and dismantling. If you have any doubts at all, you can always get a second and third opinion if necessary.

If you use the services of a good and reliable company, temporary rooves are quite safe. Your service provider would have to understand that you are trying to create a safe environment for your employees and equipment. The industry has laid out safety requirements and you can also get to know them so you can be guided as well.

You can find out about safety requirements you and your workers have to adhere to and make sure they are informed. When done rightly, temporary rooves add to the functionality of your project and are safe.

Temporary rooves are as the name suggests, temporary. They can be used for a couple of months, or at most, one year. Whether they last more than a few months, however, depends on the weather conditions they are exposed to. Environments with harsher weather conditions are bound to wear out temporary rooves faster than environments with more stable or pleasant weather conditions.

The nature of your project could also be a determinant in how long you could use a temporary roof; the kind of work done beneath the covering or internal safety requirements you may have to follow. If your project will be taking a long time, you could look into very affordable replacement options. A reliable service provider would have routine safety checks to make sure your temporary roof meets safety requirements at all times.

The most obvious benefit of using a temporary roof is that it would provide protection to your building; waterproofing and weather proofing. They are designed to withstand high winds, heavy rains, snow and sleet. Other than that, temporary rooves:

  • Provide a protected working environment for your staff; protected from harsh weather condition that could endanger their health.
  • They are cost saving if you’re covering a damaged area while working out repair plans.
  • Provide protection for equipment or tools that could become damaged if exposed to the elements.
  • Time saving because work can still go on underneath them.
  • They are a good way to protect your project while buying time if you’re still sourcing funds for a permanent solution.
  • Can be used for full covering or partial covering as needed by your project.

Temporary roofing is a covering that is used to protect a building from damage that could be caused by rain, high winds and other harsh weather conditions. When water, for instance, gets into buildings, it could result in expensive repairs and replacements which could be avoided with temporary roofing systems. They are also used for quick and effective leak stop measures in cases where a repair or replacement is already needed.

If you would like to know more about Ace Scaffolding in Brighton, or have a building project that will need scaffolding, simply contact us by phone on 01273 257201. Someone will be on hand to answer your questions. If you need scaffolding, our specialists will be happy to come to your construction site and take a look around in order to determine the right scaffolding for your building needs and offer other expert suggestions.

Because working at heights poses significant risks, both to those working on the scaffold and those below, we do not recommend that you attempt to erect a scaffold on your own, unless you are trained and competent in scaffold erection. Even then, you will still need the assistance of other qualified people, as a scaffold cannot be erected by one person.

If you obtain your scaffold from us, we would send specialists who will erect the scaffold the correct way and check to see that everything is safe for use. The safety of lives is too important to make scaffolding a DIY project.

Additionally, any alteration or modification on the scaffold will invalidate our insurance cover, so even if you are smart with your hands, it is best to leave scaffolding assembly for the experts.

While it is not necessary to have formal training in order to use a scaffold (carry out construction work on a scaffold), you do need to be considered qualified in order to do so. Competence here indicates that you understand how to use safety equipment, the risk inherent in using scaffolding (risk of falling and falling objects) as well as some experience using scaffolds. We however recommend that a qualified person be on site to supervise the workers who will be working on the scaffold to ensure that all the safety protocols are followed.

We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver your requirements quickly, but this also depends on your exact location in town. However, as long as you give us enough notice – at least one week, we would be able to obtain your requirements and erect your scaffold so that you can start work and meet with your project timetable.

CISRS cards (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme) are cards used to show proof that scaffolding workers in the construction industry have received formal training and have the necessary qualifications needed in the field of scaffolding. This is a very important document which shows whether an individual is qualified to work on, with and around scaffolding.

At Ace Scaffolding, all our employees are CISRS card holders. They have all passed through the formal training, hold the relevant qualifications and have gone through several assessments that qualify them in the field of construction industry scaffolding.

This means that you are in experienced and safe hands if you choose us for your scaffolding needs.

There are dozens of scaffolding companies in Brighton that can provide quality construction equipment, but over the years, we at Ace Scaffolding have earned a name for ourselves as one of the top names in the industry, both within and outside Brighton.

Even though we offer high quality scaffolds at very competitive prices, we do not shirk on safety, responsibility and customer service. Our employees are trained by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and also carry CISRS cards.

We tend to go over and above the call of duty to ensure that our customers are happy with our equipment and can complete their project on time. This is the secret of our popularity in the industry.

Don’t take our work for it, visit our testimonials page to read what past customers have to say about us.

It is important that scaffolds are inspected every time that they are used in order to ensure that they remain safe for use. This inspection should be done by a qualified person. It is also vital that the scaffold is inspected every time it is erected or altered, or after adverse weather such as a heavy rain, snow or strong winds. Adverse weather can undermine the strength and stability of the scaffold which can result into construction accidents.

If there is no adverse weather, we would recommend that the scaffold is inspected at least once every seven days unless when the scaffold is moved or altered, then the inspection should take place before it is used.

Even if you have a qualified person who can inspect the scaffold, you can rest assured that we would maintain best practices and inspect our equipment on a regular basis in any event. In the event that a fault is detected, unless you have a qualified person on site, make sure to let us know so that we can fix the problem before anyone uses the scaffold.

Insurance is an important consideration when choosing a scaffolding company. You want a company that is properly insured in case anything goes wrong.

At Ace Scaffolding, we have the necessary insurance coverage for anything that can go wrong. We are covered to the tune of £10m in public and employers liability. However, note that any alteration done to our scaffold will invalidate our insurance cover, so you may not be able to make any changes once a scaffold has been erected.

That being said, you may also have to contact your insurance provider to find out if any part of your policy is in conflict with using scaffolding on your premises so that there is no conflict of interest at the end of the day.

The safety of lives and property is one of the most important considerations when working on a building site. Accidents from falls and falling objects are some of the major causes of construction site fatalities and it is the responsibility of everyone on the site to ensure that the equipment and tools are safe for use.

At Ace Scaffoldings, we take safety very seriously and to this end, we have a policies, guidelines and regulations that control how we work. For example, our workers are mandated to use a safety harness once they get to a particular height to provide safety in the event of a slip and fall. Additionally, our scaffolding comes with grips, guardrails, handrails, stable and slip resistant platforms and user instruction. We also make sure to carry out a risk assessment before the commencement of work in order to identify potential risky areas and deal with them.

We are actively involved in meeting the safety goals of the Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and make sure that each and every one of our pieces of equipment is up to the approved HSE standards.

The cost of scaffolding depends on a number of factors, such as the size, height and material of the scaffold, the location where it will be used, the duration of use and any other add-on equipment that will accompany installation. However, because we do not believe that scaffolding should cost an arm and a leg, we took a good long look at the prevalent prices in the industry and came up with some of the most competitive prices possible.

As with all construction work, disruptions are likely to occur, and in the process of erecting a scaffold, there is the possibility that some part of the property may get damaged, such as the garden or the roof. But while there is the possibility of this happening, it is the exception more than the rule.

At Ace Scaffolding Brighton, safety and care has become a habit. Our workers are instilled with a sense of proper work ethics, best practices and highest safety standards. This makes the possibility of damage to property very low. That being said, the real test of a company is not in how they carry out their job, but in how they deal with challenges. When the unexpected happens and our scaffold causes damage to your property, we make sure to work with you to find a solution to the problem.

Our major goal is to ensure that all our customers are happy, both with our equipment and with our services and we are willing to go out of our way to make this happen.

There are three main types of scaffolding: supported platform scaffolding, suspended scaffolding and adjustable scaffolding. The unique requirements of your building project will determine which of these three to go for.

If your building project is at a site with firm and even ground, the supported platform scaffold will be a good choice. But, if you are building on soft or uneven ground, you should go for either a suspended scaffold or an adjustable scaffold. But, besides the site topography, your type of construction will also influence your choice of scaffolding. For example, suspended and adjustable scaffolding are ideal for very high buildings with perfectly square or rectangular dimensions while buildings without a perfectly boxed dimension would work well with a supported platform scaffold.

If you are still unsure about the type of scaffolding that would work well with your building project, call us on 01273 257201, an expert will be available to walk you through your choices.

Scaffolding is typically made from steel and aluminium, while the platform is usually made of wood. Steel scaffolding tends to be more expensive as it is more durable. They are also the best choice for when you need a scaffold for a long period of time. Aluminium scaffoldings are not as expensive as aluminium but they are also durable. This type of scaffold is recommended for projects that will be completed in a short time.

We have scaffoldings made from both stainless steel and aluminium but your project requirements and budget will determine your choice of scaffolding.

Scaffolding is typically used in construction sites and building projects, and like every other city in the UK, you will need city council approval such as a planning permit and building regulations approval before you can commence any construction work in Brighton. These approvals cover you for your use of scaffolding as long as you obey the relevant Health and Safety requirements. However, if the scaffold will be erected on a public highway, a footpath or any other location reserved by the city, you will need to acquire a license before the scaffold can be erected. You will also need a license if you intend to use the scaffold beyond the number of weeks approved by the local planning authority. We can obtain the relevant permits and licenses from the local council on your behalf and the cost (if any) will be added to our quote. But please give us at least 10 days’ notice prior to commencement of work for this process to be completed.
