Construction of buildings and towers are a challenging task that may take months or years to complete. Hence, equipment and machines that can reduce the workload and time of completion are welcomed with open hands. The mobile scaffold tower is one such piece of equipment that makes the work easy and fast. Meanwhile, due to this, the construction workers are adopting this new scaffolding over the traditional one everywhere in the country.
These new scaffoldings provide the combined features of several other types of equipment designed for workers on construction sites. The new mobile scaffolding gives stability, strength and movability, which the traditional scaffolds never did. For example, the stepladders are excellent for providing a stable platform to stand and work, but their immovability and lack of height adjustment features is a disadvantage. So, these disadvantages of traditional scaffoldings make mobile scaffolding much better than all the other options.
The reasons why you must choose a mobile scaffold are listed below:
The main reason why workers prefer mobile scaffolding is because of the stability and strength they provide. The stepladders need to be positioned against the walls or something solid, but mobile scaffolding doesn’t need any support; they can stand on their own and are stable enough that it gives confidence to the workers.
The scaffolding provides a great platform to stand (or sit) and work. Besides, railings surround the top where the workers stand for extra protection, and the height is also adjustable as per requirement. Also, the scaffolding can be used both indoors and outdoors. And, there are support bars for the workers to lean over and reach places where they need to work, and they can do it without losing stability.
The mobile scaffold is easily movable as they come with wheels or casters, and they are its unique selling point. Moreover, the casters can be locked (to stop movement) in place so the workers can stand on the scaffold and do their work. This way, the workers can switch places by moving the scaffolding to different areas even without getting off the scaffolding. Also, the workers at the bottom can move the scaffold to wherever it is required without the need for the people on the platform to get down, and this provides a fast way of completing the tasks.
The mobile scaffoldings are built with strong aluminium bars and have a cross-beamed vertical structure, and this gives more strength than traditional ladders.
The workers can carry heavy items on the scaffolding without any issue, as it can bear the weight of more than three people, whereas the stepladder doesn’t even have room for two people. Also, the space and strength of the scaffolding will let more men work simultaneously on it, making the job easier and fast.
Safety is one more reason the construction workers prefer mobile scaffolding. The protective railings on the top, support bars and firm structure are why the scaffold is safer than other ladders. Besides, the stability and ease of movement and locking ability of wheels are an added advantages for safety.
These features make the mobile scaffold towers more appealing to the construction workers. The construction companies also prefer these scaffoldings to complete the work easier and faster as they reduce labour and construction costs. And with the extra safety features, people will go for these scaffolds.
