Finding a Quality Scaffold Tower to Hire

Safety Checks

If the company you've found was not on personal recommendation but is fairly local to you go and take a look at the scaffold tower you want to hire, check that the scaffolding boards are ok and included in the hire price. Don't accept anything that shows signs of rust, safety has to be paramount when you are working at height and rust may indicate a weakness in the equipment's basic structure. If you are satisfied that there are no significant defects in the equipment then complete the hire agreement. When you hire a scaffold tower and it is delivered to you, get somebody to help you erect it, then one of you can check each component before it goes into the structure. Once the tower is in the process of being erected you should check each level when it is complete to make sure that it is sturdy enough to take the next one.

Working on a Scaffold Tower

Make sure that all the guard rails fit properly and are in good condition as these could be the things that prevent you from falling from quite a height. You should always wear a safety harness when you are working on a scaffold tower. If you don't own a safety harness then you should ask for one to be included when you hire a scaffold tower Make sure that base plates are fitted onto the feet of the tower even if you've not erected it on soft ground. Base plates give extra stability to a scaffold tower and it's always worth doing things to improve that.
