Scaffolding towers are more suited for construction and home renovation projects than simple ladders but there are obvious risks involved when using one. Safety is the number one consideration when buying your own scaffolding tower system. Therefore the danger of choosing the wrong one could lead to disastrous results. So in buying your very own scaffolding tower system you need to take into consideration the following:
- Material – aluminum and steel are the usual choices because of its tensile strength but composite scaffolding made up of fiberglass is also available
- Compliance to British and European standards – EN 1004 or the standard for mobile access working towers
- Strength & Stability – this is attributed to the metal thickness and tube diameter
- Height – either platform height and working height, both are taken into consideration with regard to the height of the project you’re working on
Taking all these into consideration let me present you with some information on a high quality scaffolding tower system made by the Youngman Group, BoSS Evolution.
