Choosing the Right Scaffolding in Bexleyheath

Our scaffolding contractors will recommend the ideal scaffolding solutions for each individual domestic and commercial project in Bexleyheath or the nearby area. Following an initial site survey and risk assessment, scaffolding companies can provide clients with detailed designs for the scaffolding services they require, available at highly competitive prices. From start to finish, home and business owners can rely on the expertise of our scaffolding erectors to assemble strong and versatile supporting structures for any size job.

Types of Scaffolding for Your Property

Supported scaffolding

 

  • Single scaffolding is known as brick layers’ scaffolding because of the style of scaffolding services it is typically used for. Scaffolding companies often supply commercial clients in Bexleyheath with single scaffolding structures to carry out stone construction and brickworks. The frame is attached to the side of your Bexleyheath property and held together in place by a vertical standard, which is a pole that runs the height of frame from a ground base.
  • Trestle scaffolding services are designed to allow builders, painters and decorators to access the width of your Bexleyheath property at an elevated height. This can be to repair exterior brickwork or cladding, as well as fitting or cleaning windows. Scaffolding contractors and scaffolding erectors assemble a horizontal platform across ladder frames, which are securely positioned at 70°. Due to the elevation, trestle scaffolding uses handrails and access gates for easy access and safety exits.

Free-standing Scaffolding

 

Double scaffolding or masons’ scaffolding is an alternative to single, supported scaffolding, suggested by scaffolding companies if the frame cannot be attached to the walls of your Bexleyheath property. The reason for this is mostly due to the material of the building wall which cannot be connected to easily. If this is the case, scaffolding erectors will construct double scaffolding which has two rows for balance as a freestanding tower. The second row is also needed to safely support the weight of builders and building materials.

Suspended scaffolding

 

  • Cantilever or needle scaffolding is fitted to hang outside windows, suspended over obstacles, oddly-shaped areas or immovable objects that prevent single scaffolding frames from being used. Scaffolding contractors will strongly suggest this option to Bexleyheath clients if the ground around the property is uneven or too wet to safely assemble supported structures.
  • Trestles can also be designed for moveable scaffolding services, to be raised and lowered whilst scaling interiors or exteriors of your Bexleyheath property at varying heights. Scaffolding companies are usually requested to build this kind of trestle platform for projects centred around cleaning windows, painting, decorating and general restoration work.

Mobile scaffolding

 

If you are carrying out renovations around different sections of the house or undertaking construction across different sites in Bexleyheath, mobile scaffolding services may be preferred. Our scaffolding erectors will put together mobile towers and show clients how to safely manoeuvre and keep the scaffolding stationary by locking the wheels into place. The sturdy, lightweight frames can help you to transport tools and building materials to different locations, making it easier to continue working on expansive projects.
