Scaffold Tower Hire



Folding Scaffold Towers




In 2005 there were some significant changes to the working at height regulations and this affected a good many people in the construction industry. Over the years the number of accidents involving step ladders had increased due to the fact that even when they were placed on a perfectly flat and stable surface there was a tendency for them to tip. Folding scaffold towers are now used where step ladders were previously used and they have a range of safety features that make them a popular choice. Building companies use them for low level access jobs and they are perfect for almost any diy project and a lot safer than the traditional ladder.

An Alternative Choice



Folding scaffold towers are a popular alternative choice to the heavier more traditional scaffold towers, largely because they are much lighter and easier to assemble and to store away. The folding tower folds flat when not in use and this makes it easier to transport from one location to another. Folding equipment is a safe alternative to the step ladder and much easier to use than other scaffold towers. The towers have smooth rolling and lockable wheels so they won't move while you are working. The top of the platform has a guardrail all the way round so you can move about quite safely while you are working and the platform has a non-slip finish, vital when you are working at height.

Easy to Work With



Folding scaffold towers not only provide a safe way for working at height, they also offer an easier way because you have access from all sides of the platform, which means that you don't have to move the tower every time you want to work on another part of the project. Folding scaffold towers are so easy to assemble, all you need to do is snap them open and they are just about ready for use. When the tower is not in use you can store it against a wall because it folds flat, which means it can even be transported in the back of a van or a car with a large space in the back. You do need to ensure that the tower is on a level surface as this makes for much safer working at height.

Portable Working Equipment



Folding scaffold towers are portable and can easily be moved from one site to another or one area of the home to another. When you are working at height it is always a good idea to have someone working with you just in case there is a problem and they need to fetch help. Whenever you are working at height, whether it is in a commercial situation or on a diy project, a safety harness and a hard hat are essential safety equipment. You should never work at height if there is a high wind because this poses a significant safety hazard. When you set up and use a folding scaffold tower you should always do so in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
