Working with Alloy Towers!

Once your scaffold alloy towers are assembled stay safe by following these essential tips –

  • Adopt a three-point grip when climbing scaffolding; this can be two feet and one hand or two hands and one foot
  • Use strong and sturdy safety boots ensures better footing on scaffolding
  • Always wear a safety helmet when using a scaffold tower
  • Invest in a tool tray to keep your tools within arm’s reach but away from your feet

British weather can be unpredictable so we would recommend never using an alloy tower in high winds, if you have broken or misplaced any parts or if it has any incompatible components. Also never use a scaffold tower as a support for a ladder, trestles or any other access equipment.
Assembling and dismantling allow towers can be potentially dangerous, which is the reasons our staff are fully trained and put health and safety at the forefront of any project we get involved in.
