Scaffolding is an integral

  • Scaolding is an integral part of almost all construction projects and has
    been used ever since the rst structures were built. Commonly needed to
    get access to structures at height during construction, scaolding can
    serve many dierent purposes. Sometimes scaolding is used to support
    workers and their tools, other times they’re needed to support signicant
    loads from building materials, such as bricks, blocks, stucco, or cast-in-
    place concrete, which is known as ‘shoring’ instead of ‘scaolding’.
    Even though there are many dierent types of scaolding, new variants
    come out fairly often. Some of the most popular types of scaolding
    around the world include:
    1. Wooden & Bamboo Scaolding
    2. Tube & Clip Scaolding
    3. Systems Scaolding
    1.Cuplock Scaolding
    2.Kwikstage Scaolding
    3.Haki Scaolding
    4.Staircase Tower Scaolding
    4. Frame & Brace Scaolding
    5. Suspended/Swinging Scaolding
    6. Mast Climbing Scaolding
    7. Shoring
    Why are there so many dierent types
    of scaolding?
    Sometimes a specic type of scaolding is common because the
    equipment is readily available and a lot of people know the system. You
    may already be familiar with these regional dierences, like Kwikstage in
    Australia and Scotland, as well as tube and clip in England and Wales.
    There is a lot of local expertise on the intricacies of each system, as well
    as local codes written with these systems in mind.
    Depending on where you’re working in the world, dierent types of
    scaolding systems will be more common. In Scandinavia and Northern
    Europe where labor is very expensive, aluminum scaolding is becoming
    more common. Since aluminum is lighter than steel, and most scaolding
    has to be manually lifted to be put in place, lighter scaolding means that
    the scaold can be built faster, which reduces labor cost.
    In some countries, aluminum is expensive and labor is much more
    aordable, so wooden poles and bamboo is fairly common. As a designer,
    make sure that you’re choosing the scaolding system that works best for
    your project and follows local regulations.

    including common applications and where they’re commonly used around
    the world.
    Tube & Clamp Scaolding
    Tube and coupler scaolding construction example from Ponteggi Edilponte S.p.A
    This is one of the earliest types of steel scaolding and consists of two
    parts, including the tubes and clips, sometimes called ‘couples’. The idea
    is really simple and one reason why it’s so popular is because of the ease
    in assembly and disassembly. To erect the scaold, you need to connect
    tubes together to make long runs and then connect the verticals and
    horizontals together with clamps built specically for these tubes.
