These areas consist of large voids, light wells or most often, over stairs. The difficulty with scaffolding for stair voids is that you cannot set up mobile scaffolds or step ladders due to the uneven base. The balustrades also create problems as they are only 1m apart.
Steel scaffolds are often seen as too bulky or messy (especially as lots of these jobs are carried out on completed projects or towards the tail end with finished paint and surfaces). A lightweight aluminium scaffold, modular type system suits this work perfectly.
A Safe Platform for Pendant or Ceiling Fan Installation
When homeowners or residential builders plan the install of large pendants or ceiling fans in hard-to-reach areas they sometimes overlook the need for a safe platform. They often feel that this is a very quick job, and the electrician will ‘find a way’. Unfortunately, especially in this day and age, this is not the case. The tradesmen require safe, secure and certified working platforms with full fall protection in order to do their job correctly. Even if the scaffold has been accounted for, the length of the pendants and the methodology of how it will be fitted using the scaffold is sometimes vague or underestimated.
Inflated Scaffolding Prices
Other scaffolding companies often inflate the price for these type of scaffolding designs, for the following reasons:
- Concerned that the installers will scratch or mark walls during the materials handling stage.
- Concerned that any ties or push tubes will mark the balustrades or walls due to no protection.
- No room for error on the material selection due to the width of the stairs, the heights of the steps and getting the best height for the electrician to work comfortably.
- That the job may only take 2-3 hours, but they then have to either find another job for these scaffolders or pay them the full day anyway.
