  • A is for Access – to the hard to reach places you can access with aluminum scaffolding in a safe and efficient manner.
  • B is for Best price – Stronghold Hire are one of the most competitive aluminium scaffolding hire providers in Sydney.
  • C is for Corrosion resistant – Aluminium scaffold This is primarily because aluminium spontaneously forms a thin but effective oxide layer that prevents further oxidation
  • D is for Deck – a deck is the access platform that the worker will stand on. They are 600mm wide and vary from 0.6m to 3.2m in length.
  • E is for Easy – Aluminium frame scaffolding is largely regarded as the easiest scaffold system to erect and dismantle.
  • F is for Frame aluminium scaffolding – Stronghold Hire supplies frame scaffolding where basically the standards and transoms are joined together resulting in less components needed. Frame scaffold is better suited to erecting mobile or fixed scaffold towers.
  • G is for Ground – uneven or sloping grounds are not a problem for us to install aluminium scaffolds.
  • H is for Hatch deck – these are the access platforms that the ladders will protrude through.
  • I is for Independent scaffold – our scaffolds can be joined in situ or as independent scaffold towers.
  • J is for the JSA’s (and SWMS) – we provide when installing a aluminum scaffold on construction sites.
