When is Scaffolding Necessary

When work is being undertaken on almost any form of building, scaffolding might well be necessary whether it is going to be constructed, knocked down or repaired. It matters not if it's a residential, public or industrial building, and it doesn't matter what the size of it is. A high office building being knocked down will have a scaffold that's dismantled from the top down as the structure becomes shorter. It matters not what the needs are, there is a type of scaffolding which suits.

Scaffold Boards Torpoint (PL11)

However, the intended use of scaffold boards in Torpoint is to provide a strong working platform for workers on scaffolds. They're typically inserted along scaffold lifts, and are supported at intervals that are based upon the quality or grade of the boards being employed.

Scaffold boards in Great Britain are commonly 225mm wide, 38mm thick, and are supplied in lengths ranging from 5 feet (1.5m) to 13 feet (3.9m). Wooden scaffold boards are easy to spot because they've got a metal band on each end, to help stop them splitting and strengthen the exposed end grain of the board. There are various different sorts of scaffold boards and they're not all made from timber.

The Different Types of Scaffold Boards

Grade "A" Scaffold Boards - Used on building sites for many decades by scaffolders throughout the United Kingdom, grade "A" scaffold boards have typically been regarded as the standard board for those in the scaffolding sector. While the name seems to indicate that they're the best quality boards, this isn't in fact the case - they've been known to break on occasion, and they don't meet British Standards.

BSI Standard Scaffold Boards - These scaffold boards do conform to British Standards requirements (BS 2482:2009) and are recommended for use on-site. The metal band on the end will contain all of the relevant information for identification including whether they've been visually or machine graded (V or M), and the British Standards mark. To fulfill the recommendations these boards need to be supported at 1.2m intervals.

Plastic Scaffold Boards - Torpoint scaffolding contractors who prefer boards which are more durable, are more rot and water resistant and are anti-slip, can use plastic scaffold boards.

Metal Scaffold Boards - Very strong and durable, metal scaffold boards are flame retardant and comply with British Standards requirements (BS EN 12811).

Flame Retardant Scaffold Boards - If there's a need for wooden scaffold boards that are flame retardant to Class C of the British Standards BS EN 13501-1, these can be purchased.
