There are a few different types of structure that our domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding teams erect around the Wimbledon area. On this page, we’ve run through each one and when it comes in handy. Need scaffolding hire ASAP? Call us right away on 01304 213 960.
Supported Scaffolding – The most common form of scaffolding hire structure you’ll see around the Wimbledon area, this is the go-to access solution in both domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding applications. Built from the ground up and precisely tailored to the building which it surroundings, supported scaffolding features a number of struts, supports and platforms to enable work across a number of levels. It’s highly secure, versatile and safe – essentially becoming an extension of the property it’s attached to.
Independent Scaffolding – Also called birdcage scaffolding, this is usually employed as a domestic scaffolding solution as it has just one level. It can also come in useful in commercial scaffolding situations, however. Less difficult (time-consuming) to erect and dismantle than supported scaffolding, it supports itself and isn’t attached to a structure. If you’re only carrying out work around Wimbledon at one fixed height, then independent scaffolding is a fantastic solution.
Hanging Scaffolding – Suspended from the upper levels of a property, hanging scaffolding hire allows for work at heights that supported scaffolding cannot reach. They’re a popular commercial scaffolding hire solution for property maintenance companies looking after tall properties around Wimbledon, but less commonly employed as a domestic scaffolding solution. Hanging scaffolding also enables work to be carried out on sites where there is dangerous/uneven ground which wouldn’t safely host a supported scaffolding base.
Rolling Scaffolding – This is a great domestic scaffolding hire solution for Wimbledon clients who need to work at height across multiple areas. Wheels are attached to the bottom of the scaffold, and can be locked in place when work is being carried out. They can rarely support many users though, and are seen as more of a “temporary” solution. For example, they can be great if you need to reach the tops of walls for decorating work inside a property, as they provide more support than a ladder. This means you can safely take your time and deliver a better quality finish.
