Scaffolding is used in the construction of buildings to continue construction or cladding at a height of the second floor and above. These are special designs that can be gradually increased in height, light, easy to carry, disassembled. There are two types of frame scaffolding and clamp scaffolding.

In which case, which forests are convenient, let’s try to figure it out.

Scaffolding is in demand among small firms that carry out construction, finishing and repair work. Most forests are not purchased, but leased. Large construction companies use special tower tours instead of scaffolding.

Forests use:

  • When finishing ceilings.
  • At facade work
  • When building walls or partitions.
  • When laying communications.
  • When repairing or restoring low-rise buildings.
  • When mounting and dismantling large billboards.
  • When working on the insulation of the walls of the building.

Forests can be divided into several types:

  • By type of connection
  • size
  • Max load capacity
  • The diameter of the pipes used, etc.

Types of forests:

frame – these scaffolds consist of frames arranged vertically one above the other. They are mainly made of pipes with a diameter of 42 mm. On the assembled frames, floorings from boards are made. To give stability, diagonal connecting pipes are installed. These scaffolds are the simplest and easiest to assemble.

    • pros:
      • Suitable for standard buildings.
      • dismantle quickly
      • The rental price is low.
      • Few details
      • Maintenance-free construction
      • Reliable mounts
      • Good load capacity
      • Easy assembly
    • Minuses:
      • Can’t transform

Clamp – Used on objects with complex geometric shapes. Parts of the forests are fastened with special locks, which makes it possible to collect forests of any height and shape. Separate sections are firmly connected with clamps. If the angle of fastening of the sections needs to be rigidly fixed, a static clamp is used. And if you need a movable connection of sections – a dynamic clamp.

      • pros:
        • Versatile and suitable for working with buildings with complex geometries
        • More reliable and durable than frame
        • Higher load capacity – up to 250 kg.
        • Good resistance to wind, weight and other loads.
        • Good stability
        • Possibility of mounting on inclined surfaces
        • A wide range of work carried out on them
        • High security
        • Versatility
      • Minuses:
        • They are significantly more expensive than frame ones.
