Using Temporary Roofing with Scaffolding
Temporary roof scaffolding and covering help to guard your building’s structure when you need to repair tiles or have a leak in your roof.
Here in the U.K, we have plenty of rainy days, so if you are waiting for a new roof to be installed on your property you simply can’t expose it to the elements.
For our latest blog, our team of specialists are going to explore temporary roofing in more detail and explain how it works with scaffolding.
How Temporary Roofs Work
Most temporary roofs are put together in sections on the ground and then lifted into place by a crane, which reduces the amount of working at height plus it is quicker and more cost-effective.
Encapsulating the sides gives your roofing a watertight finish meaning that work can continue throughout the year without the fear of any stoppages due to adverse weather.
One of the most common temporary roofs specified is the UBIX system, which allows safe installation by feeding the sheeting through runners from the scaffold on either side of the structure.
Here is a breakdown of the basics of the UBIX system –
- The light and the aesthetic weather-resistant roof is quick to assemble
- It can be built as a mono or duo pitch roof
- The roof opens to allow materials to be craned through
- Temporary roofs can be used as a mobile roof structure
- They usually span up to 15m, but greater spans are available from different suppliers
