Scaffold Tower Blog
Scaffold towers are a common piece of equipment that allows workers to access heights easily. Popular in the construction industry due to their adaptability, mobility and strength, scaffold towers provide a stable surface for staff to work from. Many scaffold towers have additional support legs which can be fitted around the base to provide even greater stability.
Similar to podium steps, scaffold towers provide workers with a wide working platform which has guard rails around the entire platform. This encloses the user and significantly reduces the chance of workers falling from height. Podium steps however, lack significant height.
There are different types of scaffolding towers which are best suited for certain purposes and come with their own limitations. Choosing the right scaffold tower for your intended need is essential for your safety.
Like all equipment used for working at height there are hazards. Always ensure your equipment is safe for use and carry out regular inspections
