Title: scaffolding types and its uses

Scaffolding Types with Their Uses
What do we understand by the word Scaffolding?
  • All things considered, framework is only a
    temporary structure which is utilized to offer
    help to the first structure and in the meantime,
    it likewise works as a stage for the laborers to
    play out the development works. As per the sort
    of development work, the kind of platform will
    contrast. Framework should be well-fabricated,
    solid and firm to help specialists and other
    development material laid on it. Both of steel or
    timber, platform is comprised of.

Trestle Scaffolding
  • The working platform is supported on movable
    ladders or tripods in trestle scaffolding. It is
    used up to a height of 5m and is normally used
    for work inside the room like repairs, paintings
    and likewise.

Steel Scaffolding
  • Steel scaffolding is made from steel tubes that
    are set jointly by steel fittings or couplers. It
    is simple to erect and to dismantle. It has
    better robustness, greater durability and
    superior fire resistance. Though it is not
    affordable cost wise, it provides greater safety
    for workers. Thats the precise reason it is used
    so widely these days.

Patented Scaffolding
  • Patented scaffoldings are also made from steel
    however, they are fitted with special couplings
    and frames etc. These are readymade scaffoldings
    that are obtainable on the market. Working
    platform is set on the brackets that are
    adjustable to the required level in this type of

Suspended Scaffolding
  • Suspended scaffolding is mainly used for
    paintings, repair works, etc. Here, with the
    assistance of chains or wire ropes etc., the
    working platform is suspended from roofs. It can
    be lifted or lowered to the desired level.

Cantilever Scaffolding
  • In cantilever scaffolding, the standards are
    supported by a chain of needles and these needles
    are pulled out via holes in the wall. This is
    known as single frame scaffolding-type. In
    another type, needles are supported inside the
    floors via the openings and this is called
    independent or double frame scaffolding type.
    When constructing cantilever scaffolding, good
    care should be taken. Normally, under below
    mentioned conditions, cantilever scaffolding is
    used. scaffold board is used as the platform.
  • When the upper part of the wall is under
  • When ground is close to the wall and is free from
  • When the ground is not capable of supporting

Single Scaffolding
  • Single scaffolding is usually used for brick
    masonry and so it is also known as brick layers
    scaffolding. scaffold board is used as the
    platform. Single scaffolding comprises of
    standards, putlogs, ledgers etc., which
    corresponds to the wall at a distance of around
    1.2 m. Distance amongst the standards is around 2
    to 2.5 m. Ledgers join the standards at an
    upright gap of 1.2 to 1.5 m. Putlogs are
    extracted from the gap remaining in the wall to
    one end of the ledgers. Putlogs are positioned at
    a gap of 1.2 to 1.5 m.

Double Scaffolding
  • Double Scaffolding is normally used for stone
    masonry job, therefore, it is also known as
    masons scaffolding. scaffold board is used as
    the platform. It is also known as the independent
    scaffolding. Typically, in stone walls, it is
    tough to make holes in the wall for supporting
    putlogs thus, two scaffolding rows are made to
    make it robust. Basically, the first row is about
    20 to 30 cm away from the wall, and another one
    is 1m away from the first row. Then after putlogs
    are positioned that are supported by both the
    frames. In order to make it sturdier, cross
    braces and rakers are supplied.

 Kwikstage Scaffolding
  • The Kwikstage system is manufactured from hard
    wearing galvanized steel. Kwikstage scaffolding
    system is effortless to assemble and erect and
    simple to take down. For builders working on big
    or small projects, this scaffolding system is
    very helpful. Wherever regular scaffold is used,
    Kwikstage scaffolding can also be used as an
    alternative. Using a strong and safe interlocking
    system, the patented Kwikstage modular system can
    be built to any height.
