If you are intending to undertake work at height, our alloy scaffold towers give a safe and stable work solution. They are straightforward to construct and come with the modern safety innovations including handrails and stabilisers, and they do not need any specialised equipment to get them up and running.
The ladder is fixed to the narrowest side of the tower, preferably inside the base region. It can be upright or angled. All conventional ladder regulations apply.
Dimensions will fluctuate according to the requirement, but standards should not be fewer than 1.2 M or further than 2.7 M apart. Foot ties are fixed from the base of the standards. Except for the working platform, ledgers and transoms should be fixed to the standards with right angle couplers. The suggested maximum freestanding height for static towers is 10.8 M, but that this may be extended to 50 M if it is attached to a structure at 6 M interludes. The working platform should be completely and closely boarded to a space of at least 1.2 M x 1.2 M. Guardrails and toe boards are be required on all four sides, and the toe boards must rise at least 150 mm higher than platform level. Guardrails need to be at least 950 mm above the platform width with the length between the tip of the toe board and the guardrail not surpassing 470 mm.
