Kwikstage scaffolding is made from hard wearing galvanized steel. It is easy to erect and dismantle. It is useful for any type of residential scaffolding and can be built to your desired height.
Single scaffolding is used for brick masonry and consists of ledgers, standards, putlogs and more. Double scaffolding is used for stone masonry. Two rows of scaffolding are built to make the holes in the walls stronger. In cantilever scaffolding, standards are supported on needles taken out through holes in the walls. It is used where the upper part of the wall is under construction or the ground cannot support standards.
