How to choose the scaffold?

Apr 04, 2018

For mobile scaffolding products that can be built quickly and safely, besides the consideration of price. Also, consider the use and performance of the product. There are two types of scaffolds on the market: the welding frame and the non-welding. They differ in many ways, so choose wisely.


First, the raw material. The scaffolding on the market is basically made of 6061-T6 and 6082 aerospace aluminum. In contrast, the aluminum scaffolding of 6061 is a good quality, which is suitable for the lighter, low-air work; While the welding performance of 6082 is general, but the strength and hardness are much better than 6061, which is suitable for high-altitude operation which requires large work load.


From the efficiency and risk of the construction, the welding frame type of scaffold is all welded into a piece of frame structure. In the process of high-altitude construction, the welded frame has a large weight, and one person will have more difficulty in lifting the welding frame, so it will definitely affect the construction efficiency while working in the high altitude.


Without welding single scaffold, the weight of the single piece is definitely lighter than the frame that is welded together. Therefore, it can be constructed by one person at high altitude. It is safer and more reliable than the welding frame of two people.


In addition, the welded frame type of scaffold is connected by a buckle type, and the non-welding scaffold USES a hammer to fasten the connection. In this way, the overall connection effect is better, and the stability is higher.


If the price is considered, a frame type scaffold can be selected within a height of 10m. If you are focusing on solid security and building diversity, or if you are working at a high altitude above 10m, you should try to choose ringlock scaffold.
