What is Hanging Scaffolding?
A hanging scaffold is a temporary structure that can be used to support work crews and materials during the project. It is a work platform that is supported by metal brackets and attached to a structured wall. It can be hung from cables or stirrups and needs to be attached to a structure that can support the hanging scaffold and its intended loads. Using hanging bracket scaffolding in London is popular because it is ideal for work on high elevations such as high rises and skyscrapers. It can be used for construction, window washing and building maintenance and is lightweight and easy to assemble. It is a static scaffold, so cannot be raised or lowered so is appropriate for work focused on a particular area.
Using a Hanging Scaffold
A hanging scaffold is perfect for working at height, providing a convenient walkway for workers and the materials they need to use. This could be for work on roof trusses, gutters, under-eave coverings and other building maintenance. The scaffold needs to be designed to support the people and materials that will be working on it, but generally there should be no more than three workers on the hanging scaffold at a time with materials not exceeding 340kg. All those working on a hanging scaffold should be wearing fall protection equipment attached to an independent lifeline. Unlike a swing stage, a hanging bracket scaffold is static, making it more secure and appropriate for longer term work.
