Five Types of Scaffolding Commonly Used by Sutton Customers

Birdcage Scaffolding

Birdcage scaffolding, also known as independent scaffolding, is a cuboid shaped structure which is free standing. As the name suggests it looks like a birdcage with regular placed vertical and horizontal scaffolding poles placed in parallel lines. Scaffolding companies such as ourselves tend to provide this type of scaffolding hire for smaller, single-story Sutton properties which are contained. Birdcage scaffolding provides a strong, secure platform.

Cantilever Scaffolding

At Full House Scaffolding our scaffolding erectors often get requests from Sutton customers requiring cantilever scaffolding. This kind of scaffolding is created at angles, with one side attached to the building and the end directing down. New platforms get support from the platform below and each level can carry workers and equipment. Cantilever scaffolding hire is useful for reaching round corners and unmovable obstacles.

Mobile Scaffolding

Scaffolding companies provide mobile scaffolding when workers need to move across construction sites easily. Known also as rolling scaffolding, scaffolding erectors construct mobile scaffolding from materials such as light steel and secure wheels to the bottom of the structure. The scaffolding can be rolled across distances and is often used as a portable working platform for new-build construction sites in Sutton and other South London areas.

Suspended Scaffolding

Suspended Scaffolding hire is ideal for reaching high levels or when building a base structure from the ground is not feasible. This type of scaffolding is attached and suspended by scaffolding erectors to the top of a building or roof. It is versatile and movable, allowing workers to move up and down levels via a levers and pulley system. Window cleaners often hire suspended scaffolding from scaffolding companies to clean skyscrapers in Sutton.

Supported Scaffolding

Supported scaffolding is the safest type of scaffolding. It gives extra support by strongly bound scaffolding poles and platforms secured to the building. This type of scaffolding hire is the most popular requested from scaffolding companies such as ourselves and is ideal for a range of construction projects in Sutton. Supported scaffolding is built from the ground up and can be constructed by professional scaffolding erectors quickly and easily.
