Things to consider Size, height and type required — these will have a big effect on the cost of hiring a scaffold. Type of work — this will influence the number of walking levels needed, and how long the hire period lasts. Location of work — prices vary by region, and any restrictions on public access will have a bearing on hire cost. Introduction Building work on homes, commercial buildings, bridges and other structures is made easier and safer by scaffolding. Whether it’s to repair, renovate or decorate, scaffold towers provide workers with a stable and secure way of reaching areas that just aren’t accessible by ladder.

Scaffold tower hire prices vary, so it’s worth getting to know the factors that influence them. This guide will take you through the different scaffolding options available and give you some useful tips on finding the best deals.

What is scaffolding? Scaffolding is a flexible temporary structure made up of metal poles and walking boards allowing tradesmen to work at height around a building. It’s most often used externally, but is sometimes useful for interiors as well, such as working on a vaulted ceiling. Most standard scaffold systems have a simple ‘straight up’ design, but specialist scaffold towers and equipment are available for hard-to-reach areas. The type, design, materials and number of levels are all cost influencers when it comes to purchasing or hiring a scaffold tower.

Scaffold systems have to comply with a variety of safety regulations and performance requirements. These include the European Standard BS EN 12811-1, the Work at Height Regulations 2005, and the safety and best practice standards set down by the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA).
