3 Kinds Of Scaffolding


Scaffolding is the structure that is put up around buildings while the buildings are being worked on. Scaffolding allows the workers to be able to stand where they are working and gives them a place to set the equipment and materials that they need to do their job. There are several different kinds of scaffolding that are used. Each kind has been developed to work in specific situations, although some of them can be used in different settings. 

Scaffolding Parts

There are several parts to each scaffold. The standards are the long vertical parts that are generally anchored to the ground. Put logs are horizontal pieces that run perpendicular to the wall, using the wall to support one end and the ledgers to support the other. Ledgers are the pieces that run parallel to the wall horizontally. Braces are the diagonal pieces, they are there to make sure that the scaffolding is strong enough. The boarding on the scaffolding is where the people can stand while they are working. 

Single Scaffolding

Single scaffolding is also called bricklayer's scaffolding since it is primarily used by people who are doing brick work. Single scaffolding is made up out of one set of frames created by a single set of standards and associated parts. The put logs are supported on one end by the scaffolding and on the wall end by putting them in holes in the walls. 

Double Scaffolding

This is generally called stone mason's scaffolding because stone masons are the ones who tend to use it the most. Instead of just a single framework, there are two sets of framework, one near the wall and one further out. Instead of anchoring the put logs on the wall, they are more likely to be anchored to the set of scaffolding frames that is nearest the wall, because it can be hard to put holes in the wall to place the put logs.

Cantilever Scaffolding

Cantilever scaffolding is used in places like high rise buildings or areas where the street is narrow or a sidewalk needs to be kept clear. Instead of having standards that are anchored to the ground, they are angled into the wall and use that to support the weight of the scaffolding, which can be either a double or single scaffolding. 

Scaffolding makes it possible for workers to work on buildings, walls, or other structures safely and lets them keep all their necessary work involved materials with them. For more information, check out websites like http://www.allstareq.com/.

Renting The Right Equipment For Your Project

As a new homeowner, I remember looking at my landscaping and wishing for better things. In an effort to make the area beautiful, I borrowed a tractor from my friend and started moving land around. Unfortunately, since I didn't know what I was doing, the job took me a lot longer than it should have. Unfortunately, my mistakes also led to me having to hire someone else to finish the job. The goal of my site is to teach you how to rent the right equipment and tools for your next DIY project. You never know what you will want to tackle, but by using the right tool, everything will be more manageable.
