There are two popular types of scaffolding systems used to construct scaffolds, the cuplock scaffolding and kwikstage scaffolding.
The kwickstage scaffold is actually the easiest and simplest form to assemble.
It is also the most popular type used on construction projects and work sites.
This is because it offers a lot of advantages over other types of scaffolding that are more complicated and time consuming to assemble.
They go up quickly and easily and any semi skilled personnel can easily assemble them as there is no need for specialized training.
Working height regulations are very important and this type of scaffolding gives the workmen the necessary space and height needed to comfortably and competently carry out their various jobs on the job site.
It is very important on construction sites, to have a fall protection platform especially for jobs that require very high elevation.
The kwikstage scaffold has the added benefit of providing added protection by way of this platform.
It provides an important avenue of support while a building is under construction or repair.
The scaffold is constructed of several tubes assembled in a grid pattern.
The packages comprise handrails, braces and you have the option of including toe boards.
It can be purchased in different packages or by the individual pieces.
The beauty of this and any scaffolding system is that it offers a full range of versatility and function as it can be customized to the requirements of your different projects.
This option can offer significant cost savings as it can be purchased new, used or refurbished.
A wide cross section of unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled workers involved in different commercial and industrial sectors utilise kwikstage scaffolding.
Unskilled and semi- skilled workers include construction crews, painters, bricklayers, roofers, masons and carpenters.
These workers will spend a lot of their time everyday using the scaffold to transport their tools and the materials needed to do their jobs.
They will also utilize it to move around on the job site. They are the group of people who rely on the safety and strength of this type of scaffolding.
They can carry out their different jobs in confidence knowing that it has been rigorously tested according to the highest industry standards and is guaranteed to safely hold many times its own weight.
There are several different groups of skilled professionals such as architects, engineers, city planners and other government inspectors who will also utilise the scaffolding in order to adequately perform their duties.
These individuals may not be present on the job site every day and so they may not spend as much time on the scaffolding.
They will use it occasionally to monitor or check on the job being done and to keep abreast of the progress on the site.
For government officials who are in charge of inspecting, approving and issuing permits, they may also have to use the up close access provided by kwikstage scaffolding to effectively carry out their jobs.
