3 Reasons to Use Scaffolding for Construction

Access scaffolding makes life a lot easier for construction workers, especially for large-scale projects that require prolonged aerial access. Whether you are constructing a high-rise building or a townhouse complex, scaffolding systems offer many benefits. As a leading provider of scaffold rentals for operations of all sizes, the team at United Scaffold Supply knows how invaluable the right scaffold system can be for demanding projects. That is why we have compiled a list of 3 reasons to use scaffolding for construction to demonstrate why they are worth investing in.

Learn how to choose the right scaffolding system for your construction project.

3 Benefits of Scaffolding Systems for Construction Projects

Scaffolding systems offer the following benefits for large-scale and small construction projects alike:

1. Enhanced Safety

Construction projects require workers to perform a variety of demanding tasks in many different locations. Scaffolding systems give workers a secure, firm, and level workspace, allowing them to stay safe throughout the duration of the project, even when working at great heights. When combined with fall protection equipment, site safety training, and other precautions, scaffold systems are a safe option for nearly any type of job.

2. Increased Accessibility

Certain areas of a construction project can be difficult to access without proper equipment. Access scaffolding lives up to its name by allowing for access to every area of the building(s) you are working on, allowing workers to paint, plaster, or perform other tasks as needed. This is especially important for tall buildings, as safe and prolonged access is not possible for multiple workers with other types of equipment.

3. Time Savings Through Increased Productivity

While some sites utilize ladders, scissor lifts, and other aerial work platforms, these systems only allow one or two workers to perform their tasks at the same time. By erecting a scaffold system for your project, you are investing in a system that allows many workers to perform their work at the same time. This more than makes up for the time it takes to erect the system and take it down, allowing you to stay on schedule by maintaining a high level of productivity.
