What are the different types of scaffolding used in Brighton?
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.
