Hanging Scaffolds

We can design and erect a hanging scaffold aka a suspended scaffold to give access to areas where a standard scaffold or ground isn't possible i.e. the underside of a bridge, crossing a river.

Temporary Edge Protection

We supply scaffold handrails for edge protection to ensure a safe working area.
Where there is a risk of a fall from or through the roof structure and there are no other means to prevent a fall, temporary edge protection and/or scaffolding should be installed.
Perimeter or edge protection should be installed on all exposed edges of a roof including the perimeters of buildings, the perimeters of skylights or other fragile roof materials, and any openings in the floor or roof.
