Scaffold Boards for Sale in Aldershot | Plus a Wide Range of Complementing Scaffolding Fittings, Like Scaffold Tubes

Some individuals who come to us seeking scaffolding equipment or scaffolding accessories, particularly in the residential sector, often inquire about the necessity of using a tower. There's a common misconception that regulations forbid operating at heights using ladders or stepladders, but this isn't accurate. In reality, many in Aldershot carry out minor tasks using ladders with scaffold boards for platform support. Our Guildford location offers scaffold for sale, including trestles, scaffold, boards and security barriers, should the former be the best option.

Furthermore, we provide a comprehensive selection of scaffolding supplies, including scaffolding fittings, SmartGuard® edge protection, temporary fencing, and safety gear. Naturally, scaffold tubes and scaffold boards for sale are also part of our inventory.

The responsibility lies with you or the tradesmen you’ve brought in, if you’ve employed them, to evaluate the associated risks and equip the job site with appropriate scaffolding equipment as necessary. Realistically, constructing a tower for minor tasks, such as replacing a few shingles on a garage roof in Aldershot, and incurring the additional costs of purchasing or renting scaffolding supplies, may not be the most prudent business decision for a tradesperson!

But know that, while we offer scaffold tubes and scaffold boards for sale, we’ll never pressure you into unnecessary purchases. Using a ladder or scaffold boards on trestles enables work to be carried out from the ground with a low chance of someone getting hurt in case of a fall. Even when working at low heights, a trade might still employ temporary fencing to deter trespassers from the base of the ladder/working platform. However, if a tower is indeed required, we have scaffold for sale and will provide various innovative systems to suit your needs.

Scaffolding Equipment | Selecting the Correct System

For work on residential properties, we recommend a baseline structure referred to as supported scaffolding. Necessary scaffolding supplies for these systems include scaffold boards and scaffold tubes, in addition things like couplers. Erected from the ground upwards, this scaffolding adheres to a predefined design. It's important to note that many properties in Aldershot area feature curved shapes or intricate architecture at unusual angles.

In such cases, tradespeople utilise scaffolding fittings and complementing scaffolding equipment in accordance with a customised design, involving careful considerations to ensure security. A proficient scaffolder will determine the most suitable plans a specific building style.

Any scaffold erected within the confines of your property, whether by yourself or a contractor, typically does not require approval. However, if a section of the scaffold overhangs a neighbouring public access way, a license from Aldershot Borough Council is necessary. Whenever feasible, the contractor overseeing the project should secure access to systems using security barriers and temporary fencing.

Regardless of your requirements for working safely at height, we offer scaffold tubes and scaffold boards for sale tailored to your needs and project specifications.

Scaffolding Safety – Responsibility Throughout a Project

For residential projects around Aldershot, the individual utilising the scaffolding equipment holds responsibility for ensuring adherence to all relevant regulatory standards. However, the regulations can be different when the work is commissioned by businesses requiring construction services. This typically encompasses:

  • General Builders
  • Developers
  • Estate Agents
  • Letting Agents

This responsibility falls under CDM Regulations, where the company commissioning the work in the Aldershot area is accountable for safety on a site. And despite it being true we offer scaffold for sale, our job is strictly limited to providing scaffolding supplies to clients.

This is why so many operations prefer to handle the procurement of what they need to get a project off the ground themselves, including scaffold boards, scaffold tubes, scaffolding equipment, not to mention security barriers and temporary fencing. Erecting scaffolding and equipment requires a tradesperson to possess the appropriate ability and safety knowhow. Additionally, scaffolding contractors will have valid CISRS cards and conduct safety inspections every week.
