What is scaffolding? What is scaffolding used for? Why scaffolding is needed? Perhaps on your daily commute, you may walk past construction sites and often see scaffolding structures, but rarely think about why scaffolding is needed.
Wikipedia said, “Scaffolding, also called scaffold or staging,is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and all other man-made structures…”
Scaffolding is a temporary structure, a platform, used in construction, bridge construction and other projects. Workers must rely on scaffolding to complete the construction of buildings, bridges and other projects. In addition, in order to ensure the safety of workers, the quality of scaffolding must comply with industry standards, such as BS/EN/SGS, etc.
Scaffolding is common in various construction sites because of its easy installation and disassembly and excellent safety, and even some people have scaffolding products in their homes. Generally speaking, scaffolding products can be used for the following five purposes:
1. Scaffolding for Ship Maintenance
2. Scaffolding for Home Painting and Decoration
3. Scaffolding for Exterior Wall Renovation
4. Scaffolding for House Improvements
5. Scaffolding for Building Inspection
In the maintenance of the hull, in order to meet the needs of construction operations, it is necessary to set up the convenient operation of scaffolding, it is the permanent construction facilities of ship repair enterprises, but also to ensure the safety of construction, engineering quality and construction progress of one of the important work links.
When decorating a house, painters work at a higher height and need a platform from which they can safely move and place tools and equipment, which means that scaffolding is important to keep them safe and provide a safe platform to work on.
For older buildings, the external walls will be peeled off to facilitate repainting of the building's external walls. Workers need to move around the building and have easy and safe access to all areas of the building, so scaffolding can help fulfill these needs by providing a safe surface and area for work.
House Improvements means when a homeowner or landlord decides to extend a house, remodel a loft, build a garage or replace a dilapidated roof, often construction workers need access to the roof, or need to be on a platform, so scaffolding is needed to get the job done more comfortably and faster.
Building inspection is usually to check the reliability of the building and the safety of the building. Because inspection activities require inspection of various parts of the building, and the inspection part of a high-rise building may be located 100 meters above the ground, this inspection requires the installation of safety equipment, such as scaffolding, and it is worth mentioning that the installation of scaffolding must meet the specified safety standards.
