Access Scaffolding Vs Shoring Scaffolding

Getting to know the differences between access scaffolding and shoring scaffolding can help you make an informed decision about what type of scaffolding will work best for your specific needs. At United Scaffold Supply, we understand how important it is to have the right equipment for the job. That is why we offer a selection of scaffolding equipment, including access scaffolding and shoring scaffolding.

What is Access Scaffolding?

Access scaffolding is designed to provide temporary access to hard-to-reach places on large construction sites. This type of scaffolding is available in a selection of different systems such as ring-loc systems, tube & clamp, and frame scaffold and stairway towers for construction access and for public use. All access scaffolding is constructed to meet rigorous safety standards and can be equipped with aluminum plywood decks, steel plank systems, high steel standards and ledgers, as well as stair towers.

The Benefits of Access Scaffolding

Some of the main benefits of using access scaffolding on your next big project include:

  • Adaptable to workplace requirements
  • Fast, easy setup and dismantling
  • Has a high load capacity
  • Safe access help promote quality and efficient work
  • Offers freedom of movement and adequate workspace

What is Shoring Scaffolding?

Shoring scaffolding is a heavy-duty system that is particularly ideal for applications that exceed the load-bearing capacities of traditional scaffold towers. This type of scaffolding can easily be combined with columns for added support and can be used in multiple arrangements with various load-bearing capacities. Some of the different arrangements that shoring scaffolding can be used for are:

  • Slab support systems
  • Temporary support for structural repairs or renovations
  • Temporary Re-shore of existing structures for added capacities when required
  • Temporary support to facilitate Demolition works

The Benefits of Shoring Scaffolding

Some of the main benefits of shoring scaffolding include:

  • Adaptable components for propping and general scaffolding
  • Easy to assemble and disassemble
  • Offers exact height adjustment
  • Offers superior system technology
  • Strong, verified high load-bearing capacity
