Aluminium Mobile Scaffolding Information
As with all our products, our Aluminium Scaffold are manufactured to Australian Standards and registered with WorkSafe.
What is Mobile Scaffolding?
Mobile scaffolding (also known as rolling scaffolding) is a form of temporary support platform on wheels that can be used for many different purposes. Mobile scaffolds are usually found on construction sites when workers need to work at heights and/or constantly change their positioning. They are similar to a fixed scaffold tower, however the addition of wheels at the bottom means that the scaffold is able to be moved to a different location with ease.
Aluminium mobile scaffolds can be used for a multitude of different jobs such as:
- General maintenance work at heights.
- Residential construction.
- Commercial construction.
- Electrical maintenance.
- Renovation and restoration work.
Advantages of using Rolling Scaffolding
These aluminium structures are easy to move. Mobile scaffolds run on wheels or casters which makes them easy to roll from one location to another with a simple pull or push. If you need to free up more space at the end of the work day, dismantling a mobile scaffold is fast and simple.
Safe & Convenient
Mobile scaffolds are far safer and more convenient than their traditional scaffolding predecessors. Mobile scaffold platforms are guarded with safety railings to reduce the chance of a worker falling off. It also takes very little effort to raise or lower a platform which makes this type of scaffolding a great option for renovations, DIY projects and tradesmen.
Extra Room to Move
Mobile scaffolding have much more flat space than traditional scaffolds. This allows workers to freely move around and provides more room for tools / materials on the platform. This creates a safer and more efficient environment for workers.
Manufactured from aluminium, mobile scaffolding is extremely sturdy and lightweight. This makes it easy to move the platforms around which lowers the risk of accidents or injuries occurring on the work site.
At CanDo we offer a site advisory service to ensure that our clients receive a fixed quotation for a tower that fits the purpose of their specific job.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are mobile scaffold towers safe?
Yes, when mobile scaffold towers are set up and used correctly they are a very safe structure.
A scaffold tower is a self-supporting, highly rigid structure. These towers are designed for use on jobs where height is the fundamental requirement.
Scaffold towers offer resistance against slips and provide more room to move about freely while you work.
With the ability to accommodate the worker, their materials and tools, scaffold towers have become a popular choice amongst workers.
Why use a mobile scaffold tower?
If you need to work at heights but are constantly on the move, the mobile scaffold is the ideal solution.
How high can a mobile scaffold go?
Mobile Scaffolding can be built to a maximum height of 12 metres and comes equipped with lockable wheels/casters for easy security and maneuverability.
Do you need a harness on a mobile scaffold?
If you're a scaffolder working at height, you need a fall arrest harness and a twin-tail lanyard.
Falls from height account for 30% of construction industry fatalities in Australia.
Can I erect my own scaffolding?
You can erect your own scaffolding tower as long as it is under 4m in height. Workcover/Worksafe regulation applies to any structure above this height
We do not recommend that you attempt to erect a scaffold on your own.
Working at heights poses significant risks to those working on the scaffold and those on the ground. Keeping people safe is too important to risk making the erection of scaffolding a DIY project.
How long can you have scaffolding set up?
There are no regulations on how long scaffolding can be left up.
This is because different projects take varying lengths of time to complete.
