What Scaffolding Do I Need?

By on Apr 18, 2021 in Blog, Scaffolding |

Here at Network Scaffold Services, we specialise in offering scaffolding services across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Loughborough, Staffordshire and the surrounding areas of the Midlands. With a vast array of services available that all adhere to the latest health and safety regulations, we’re well equipped to help with any queries that you may have. One of our FAQs is people asking what scaffolding they may need. In order to explore this in more depth, we’ve put together the following article.

It’s extremely important to give scaffold services full consideration as cutting corners can often lead to potentially fatal results. 2019 saw scaffolding injuries fall to an all-time low according to the NASC with only 74 incidents reported throughout the year. Our commitment to keeping safe, from pedestrians to your workers, means that we’re aiming to continue bringing this number further and further down.

Bespoke Scaffolding Required

Due to the Work at Height Regulations 2005, it is required that your scaffolding is assembled to a generally recognised standard configuration. It must also be designed using bespoke calculation ensuring that adequate strength, rigidity and stability are guaranteed whilst it’s being erected, used and dismantled. Here at Network Scaffold Services Stafford, we understand that and work hard to ensure that any scaffold gets properly designed around your project’s specification.

In order for us to be able to design your bespoke scaffolding across Derbyshire and the surrounding Midlands, we will need certain information to base our design upon. This includes a variety of information including anything from the location of the site to the maximum working loads to be imposed on the scaffold. To see the full list of information to include, you can take a look at our scaffold design page.

How Can Network Scaffold Services Stafford Help?

Before the installation of the scaffold, we will aim to provide you with a wide variety of information on your desired scaffolding. It’s important that you have a good understanding of the considerations involved in designing your scaffold, hence why we’re so keen to share this information. In addition to advising you on the type of scaffold to get, we will also share the following information:

  • Maximum bay lengths and lift heights
  • Safe working load/load class and maximum leg loads
  • Maximum tie spacing both horizontal, vertical and tie duty
  • Details of additional elements such as beamed bridges, fans and loading bays
  • The information included in relevant drawings if appropriate to your project

In addition to providing the advice and information mentioned above, we can also guarantee that all of our work follows the best practices and regulations set out by the latest health and safety regulations, including the 2005 Working at Height Regulations. As a part of this, we consider the guidance of the NASC in document SG4 ‘Preventing falls in Scaffolding’ for tube and fitting scaffolds, amongst many others to prevent any accidents and injuries.
