Mobile Scaffold

Mobile scaffolds are a type of supported scaffold set on wheels or casters. They are designed to be easily moved and are commonly used in the construction industry for plastering, painting and other work, and is also widely used in daily life where workers must frequently change position.

The Benefits of Using a Mobile Scaffold

  • cost-effective
    for those with a smaller budget or limited resources, these temporary platforms can be a cost-effective solution that still gets the job done.
  • versatile
    more stability or extra working space than a standard ladder would be able to provide;
    can be set up on uneven ground, making them a practical solution for construction sites where conditions are not always ideal.
  • spacious
    are available in various sizes, allowing you to choose the best option for the needs of your project;
    makes completing a job much quicker as you’re not having to prepare various tools.
  • easy to assemble
    many mobile scaffold towers fit together in a modular design, making them very easy to put together.
    additional levels can be added if extra height is required.

APPLICATIONS

Applications of Mobile Scaffold

  • In the construction industry, workers use scaffolding towers to complete different jobs, such as roofing and brickwork and to carry out repairs and maintenance. Even when a building is complete, it’s still important to complete regular surveys. Scaffolding towers allow building inspectors and civil engineers to adequately assess the exterior infrastructure.
  • Plasters, Decorators, and Window Cleaners, who need to access areas at height. Although they could use a ladder, it would make it very difficult and unsafe for them to carry equipment up and down.
  • Another industry which uses mobile scaffolding is events. From constructing staging to installing cameras and speakers, this is another example of how these portable structures can be very useful.

Use & move

Whilst it’s very easy to move a mobile tower due to its lightweight nature and design, always make sure those around you are aware of what is happening first.
There are a few things to bear in mind when using a tower.

Never use a tower if:
   In strong winds
   As a support for ladders
   They have broken or missing parts
   They have incompatible components

When moving a tower, you should always:
   reduce the height to a maximum of 4m
   check that there are no power lines or obstructions overhead
   check that the ground is firm
   push or pull using manual effort from the base only

Erecting a Mobile Scaffold Tower

There are two safe systems of work when erecting a tower:

  • Advance guard rail system – This is where temporary guard rail units are locked in place from the level below and are moved up to the platform level. They are in place before the operator accesses the platform to fit the permanent guard rails.
  • ‘Through-the-trap’ (3T) – This involves the operator taking up a working position in the trap door of the platform, from where they can add or remove the components which act as the guard rails on the level above the platform. It is designed to ensure that the operator does not stand on an unguarded platform.

Safety Precautions

Tower scaffolds must comply with the standard required for all types of scaffolds, including double guardrails, toeboards, bracing, and access ladders.

When you have hired your scaffolding tower, it should arrive with all the necessary components to ensure it is safe and stable.

For a tower to be structurally sound, it relies on all parts being in place, as they are at risk of collapse if some sections are abandoned.

Following assembly, all towers must be inspected to ensure they are safe for workers to use. Moreover, if the tower is being used for any type of construction work and a person could fall 2 metres or more from the platform, then it must be inspected after assembly and then every 7 days. If the inspection shows it is not safe to continue, then you must stop work immediately and correct any faults that have been identified.

The result of an inspection must be recorded and kept until the next inspection is recorded.

12 metres

Mobile Scaffold is an aluminium structure that is erected on site. It can be built to a maximum height of 12 metres and comes equipped with lockable wheels or casters for easy maneuverability. If you need to work at heights, but are constantly on the move there is a Scaffold that will suit.

If anyone could whip up a scaffold tower and start using it, there'd be a whole lot of health and safety risks at play. The Highways Act 1980 states that regardless of whether a scaffold tower will be used long or short-term, a licence for the placement of it must be obtained from the Highway Authority.

Common hazards that workers must be aware of when using mobile scaffolds include falls from an elevated level, tip-overs, electric shocks, structural failures or collapse, and falling objects. OSHA Standard 1926 Subpart L provides the construction industry guidelines for Scaffolds.
