21 Mar The Benefits of Quickscaff
Quickscaff is one of the oldest methods of scaffolding. Initially, this conventional mode of constructing scaffolds was erected using timber. Mattered not the type of building in question: from homes to business premises and other commercial properties to schools, you name it.
The use of timber to construct quickscaffs (or any other scaffold for that matter) would not be sustainable in this day or in the environment’s best interests. Fortunately, those days are past us.
Over the years, things have evolved and today the best quickscaff structures are made from steel, mostly using leftover material. Therefore, before we venture into the benefits, it’s also good to point out that quickscaffs also contribute towards solving the issue of waste material, along with creating a greener environment.
There is no denying that erecting a quick scaffold is an intricate affair and does require a team of experienced professionals who are skilled in the art of putting up a sturdy scaffold structure and are aware of the entire complexities.
Then again, most large structures do (as those in which quickscaff is best employed). There are some situations in which this traditional system may be too much of a hassle, such as works that involve the occasional tradesman, technician, or DIY user: the small time projects.
That said, here are some of the obvious benefits of this system:
- Few systems work well than quickscaff when it comes to fairly large projects that take time to complete; large domestic structures, for example, as well as industrial, commercial and mining projects
- Modern quick scaffolds tend to be very stable and can withstand the test of time (to projection completion) as well as the harshest of elements as is common in some parts of the country
- A quickscaff system provides for ample room to move and place tools and heavy duty materials such that those working high up can stay for extended periods of time without the need to climb down
- Galvanised steel does not rust meaning once it’s set up, it can have a rather long lifetime without posing safety concerns; in most cases until the project is complete. In fact, the bearing capacity of steel is capable of lasting a lifetime (if need be)
- A stairway eliminates the need for ladders and improves safety and efficiency on the site (our structures are tested and approved to Australian standard AS 1657)
Good and solid foundations are an essential part of this business. Therefore, all in all, modern quickscaffs are ideal when it comes to providing efficiency and security for the workers.
