However, the intended use of scaffold boards in Wilmington is to provide a secure working platform for workers on scaffolding. Scaffold boards are generally mounted lengthwise along scaffold lifts, and given extra support at evenly spaced intervals which will depend on the grade and quality of the boards.

Scaffold boards in the United Kingdom are traditionally 38mm thick, 225mm wide, and are supplied in lengths ranging from 1.5m (5 feet) to 3.9m (13 feet). Easily recognised because they have a galvanised metal band at both ends, timber scaffold boards require this extra protection to strengthen the exposed end grain of the board and help prevent them from splitting. Scaffold boards aren't necessarily all made from timber, and they come in various different types and grades.

The Different Types of Scaffold Boards

Grade "A" Scaffold Boards - Used for decades by scaffolders all over the UK, grade "A" scaffold boards have generally been thought of as the standard board for anyone in the scaffolding sector.

Plastic Scaffold Boards - Plastic scaffold boards are another alternative for scaffolding contractors in Wilmington, they are anti-slip, are more water and rot resistant, have a longer service life, and can be bought to British Standards requirements.
