TYPES OF SCAFFOLDING WHICH ARE COMMONLY USE AT SITES


We have many types of Scaffolding but four important scaffolding are describe below. 
  • Steel or tubular Scaffolding. 
  • Masons Scaffolding 
  • Brick layers Scaffolding 
  • Needle Scaffolding.

1.STEEL / TUBULAR SCAFFOLDING: 

The steel or timber scaffolding is essentially similar.The wooden member are replaced by 38-64 mm diameter steel tubes.Special types of steel couplets or fittings are used for connecting different members. 
In this type of scaffolding the vertical tubes called upright are spaced 2.5 to 3 m apart.Each standard is welded to a base plate. The steel scaffolding plate has a holes in their base so that it can be spiked to a timber or concrete base. In this way rigid foundation is formed for the scaffolding. 
Ledgers are spaced at 1.8 m vertically apart and the short tubes are normally 1.2 to 1.8 m in length.

TUBULAR SCAFFOLDING: 

Tubular scaffolding mounted on wheels and can be used for carrying out the work of painting the walls, under side roof etc. 

The tubular scaffolding has several advantages over the timber scaffolding such as rapid erection and dismantling, greater strength and durability.

2. MASON’S SCAFFOLDING: 

Usually mason’s scaffolding is use in stone masonry work. In mason’s scaffolding two frames of standards, at a distance of 1.5 m from the first one. The mason’s scaffolding is entirely independent of the stone wall. The mason’s scaffolding is use to carry heavy loads because the loads of the stone block is very heavy. Hence the mason’s scaffolding are made stronger by placing the standards at a fairly close distance apart. 

3. BRICK LAYER SCAFFOLDING: 

This type of scaffolding consist of standard firmly.The Standards are connected to each other by ledgers at every rise of 120 to 150 cm. The brick layer scaffolding’s are provided on the building side and are secured in position with the help of rope-lashing. In high Scaffolding the cross braces are used to stiffen the temporary structure. The Braces which is used in temporary structure consist of poles tied by rope-lashing on the standard. 

4. NEEDLE SCAFFOLDING: 

The needle scaffolding is to provided for a building on the side of a busy street where construction of ordinary scaffolding will obstruct at that place needle scaffolding is use.

  1. when you encounter a clogged drain, it is likely that you may try to clear it using hot water. If the problem does not solve immediately or it recurs, it is likely that there is a block that needs to be removed. Dismissing it can elevate the problem and cause serious issues to the plumbing. plumbing services
