What is suspended scaffolding?

These are platforms held up in the air by a non-rigid means such as wire ropes or chains from an overhead structure. The platform is suspended by a cable system that allows scaffolders and materials to move between heights.

It offers savings on very tall structures that need access for a small improvement or building maintenance. It is mostly used for repair works and painting. The working platform is suspended from roofs and can be lowered or lifted to the desired level. A quality scaffold hires in Brighton will help you complete a construction or renovation safely and efficiently.

The types of suspended scaffolding include

Single point adjustable

A platform that is equipped with a tool to allow movement of the platform to a level where the worker wants to work from. The platform is suspended with a rope from an overhead support. The rope between the suspension device and scaffold must be vertical at all times. The maximum intended load is 113 kg.

Two-point adjustable suspension scaffolds

Also known as swing-stage scaffolds, cables and ropes are connected to stirrups across each end of the platform. You’ve probably seen them in use for washing skyscraper windows and high rise construction building.

A secure anchorage is crucial to the safe use of a two-point suspended scaffold. The weight of the occupants and the scaffold must be supported by each of the scaffold components and the structure it is attached to. It is important to access this scaffold system from the rooftop of the building or from the ground you are working on, not a ladder.

Multi-point adjustable scaffolds

Here, a platform(s) is held up by multiple ropes, equipped with a means to lower and raise the platforms to the required work level. They are used in silos, tanks and chimneys. It must be suspended from hooks, brackets, metal outriggers, wire rope slings or a material with equal strength and durability.

Catenary suspended scaffold

It relies on ropes but uses it in a different way than the single or two point adjustable scaffolds. It uses two horizontal ropes to surround a catenary scaffold and they are connected to vertical pickup ropes attached to structural members of a structure or building.

Catenary scaffolds cannot have more than two platforms and the platform supported by wire ropes should have hook-shaped stops to prevent slipping from the wire ropes. Each person on the scaffold must be protected by a fall-arrest system.

Needle Beam suspended scaffolds

This is a simple scaffold that includes a platform suspended from needle beams and attached to an end of a structure. Hangers or ropes will be used for support and one end of the scaffold is supported with a permanent structural member. We arrange the support connection in a way that prevents the needle beam from becoming displaced or rolling.

Float suspended scaffolds

This suspended scaffold includes a braced platform on two parallel bearers extending at least 6 inches beyond the platform on both sides and hanging from overhead supports by ropes. The ropes must pass under the platform, hitched to an end of the bearer, hitched on the other end and have sufficient rope left over for supporting ties.

The benefits of working with a professional scaffolding company in Brighton

Health & Safety

When choosing a scaffolding company, the choice you make could be the difference between the safety of your workers and the quality of work done on your construction site. Safety is paramount for any job that requires working at height.

Ace scaffolding has a track record for health & safety management. We are members of the Safety Schemes in Procurement, which is the only way to ascertain a company in Brighton that takes safety seriously.

High-quality standards

We are assured by the International Organisation of Standardisation, which is the benchmark for a scaffold hire company in Brighton that adheres to international standards of quality. This means that the quality of the materials we provide meets safety specifications.

We help you save money

Most people in Brighton compare several quotes to find the most competitive quote. We can include ladders, offer a cost-saving bonus for early completion and a small fee for excess hire. We also include scaffolding inspections in each quote. Everything you ask for will be included in the quote we send.

Long-term experience

When buying a product online, you read reviews to see if the product will work. The same applies to the scaffold. You can ask for samples of past work we have completed or ask for recommendations from clients we have worked with in the past.

If your building has any special features that make it difficult to access, we can show samples of similar buildings we’ve worked on to ease your mind and prove that we will provide the same quality of work for your project.

We are insured

As a leading scaffolding hire company in Brighton, we are legally required to provide sufficient insurance coverage for public liability and employer’s liability in case of an unforeseen event. This means that if something happens to one of our workers whilst we’re working on your site, you won’t be held responsible.

There are legal and financial ramifications to using an uninsured scaffolding company. They will be cheaper but the money you end up spending on hospital bills when something goes wrong is 10 times more than the cost of working with an insured scaffolding company in Brighton.
