A mobile scaffold is a wheeled structure that can be assembled on-site and used for a variety of purposes. It is often used for brickwork or repairs, but can also be used by decorators or window cleaners. What are the advantages of using a mobile scaffold?

Easy assembly

Firstly, mobile scaffolds are very easy to put together on-site. It is usually a one-person job, and their assembly does not require any special training. They will come with simple instructions on how to construct them. This makes them especially useful for a single tradesperson, or on construction sites where workers are needed for other tasks.


A second advantage is that this type of scaffolding is very light and easy to manoeuvre. It is easy to transport to the site itself and then can be moved from one place to another. The fact that it is on wheels means that it does not need to be disassembled to be moved, although you should make sure that it is not too tall and that there are no overhead cables or other hazards when you are moving it.


Despite being lightweight, mobile scaffolds are designed to be very strong. This is partly because they are made of aluminium, and partly because of the design of the scaffold. They will have no problems supporting your workers and their equipment, although you should make sure that you do not exceed any recommended weight limits.


A fourth benefit is that the scaffolding can be used for a wide variety of jobs. Many tasks, such as painting or inspection, need access to the whole of a building but do not require a lot of time to be spent in any particular place. Such jobs are well suited to a mobile scaffold as it can be moved around as the job progresses. However, a mobile scaffold is just as well suited to tasks that require intensive work at a particular spot because they are so stable.


Finally, mobile scaffolds are very safe. They usually have a wide platform on which to work, so that operatives do not get in each other's way and there is plenty of room for any equipment. They also include safety railings to ensure that there is no danger of falling. Your workers can, therefore, use the scaffolding with no fear of accidents.
