There are many different materials that could be used to create an aesthetically secure and safe scaffolding system to provide temporary structure support for maintenance or construction work with the most common being steel, timber and aluminum.
Although each has their own advantages in scaffolding businesses, we’ve chosen to use the steel in all our scaffolding services as part our scaffolding system due to many of the reasons listed below.
Sturdiness of scaffolding made from steel
Steel is without doubt one of the most robust and durable materials for scaffolding. It provides an uninjured and stable platform to work on.
It is able to withstand the weight and stress that scaffolding has to endure due to the weight of equipment and employees and also the force it might feel from powerful winds.
It’s sturdy and strong against everything, which means that there’s no need to worry about the scaffolding breaking or becoming loose, placing workers or pedestrians at risk.
The steel scaffolding is long-lasting and tough.
Steel is very robust and will stand up against harsh weather conditions, including severe storms, heavy rains, and snow.
It has therefore more longevity than other materials and is able to last several years and even jobs with no damage. This makes it an environmentally sustainable choice for scaffolding materials.
It is easy to put together and take down.
When compared with other substances, steel is much easier to put together and requires less time , regardless of the scaffolding height required.
This allows scaffolding to be built at a speedier pace whichin turn allows construction work to begin earlier.
After the project is complete then the scaffolding is removed quicker, which will ensure an overall high-quality construction project.
Steel is great for larger tasks.
As opposed to wood, steel scaffolding can be constructed at great levels, which permits us to do tasks for larger construction projects with no restrictions.
It is also a good option for double or single scaffolds, based on the mass of the building materials.

Steel is more sustainable
One of the lesser-known benefits of Steel scaffolding is the fact that it’s an eco-friendly material particularly because of its sustainability.
While timber is the result of deforestation, the industry makes use of primary energy in a way that is sparing it conserves resources that are not renewable and minimizes waste.
We are proud to say that we are a steel using scaffolding company as it enables us to deliver efficient, environmentally-friendly and, most importantly, safe scaffolding on jobs of all sizes.
