For use indoors and outdoors, often needed on stairs and with the ability to reach indeterminable heights, a scaffold tower provides a safe platform for workers to access hard-to-reach areas without the hassle. With each type of scaffold tower playing a pivotal role in construction, renovations, and repairs, choosing the right one is important for achieving the desired result. As the leading scaffolding manufacturer, we at Disc-O-Scaff offer customers Selflock and Kwikstage access solutions.

Scaffold Towers Provide Versatile Solutions

With each scaffold tower being specifically assembled for use in a particular environment, having the correct type of scaffolding solution will save you time and help improve the overall quality of the project. Here is a list of different types of scaffold towers:

  1. Staircase Scaffold Tower

As the name suggests, these scaffold towers are ideal for use on staircases as well as for any small repairs or electrical work that need to be completed indoors or outdoors. This type of scaffolding makes it easier to navigate all the hard-to-reach areas on stairs.

  • One-Man Tower

Many access trades only need one person to complete the job. On this type of scaffolding, base jacks are normally replaced with castor wheels to provide mobility, making this scaffold tower ideal for painting at heights. Due to their diminutive size, they can easily be dismantled and transported in a van.

  • Standard Scaffold Tower

Small builds, repairs, or renovations need a quick, simplistic scaffold tower that is easy to assemble and dismantle. Varying tube, plan brace, and tie bar sizes make it possible for these towers to be customised to specific requirements.

  • Cantilever Scaffolding

There are often situations where the building needs to be done over an obstacle. In this instance, a cantilever scaffold tower provides workers with an additional tower, making it easier to complete a task. Additional safety gear, such as a harness, is advisable.  

  • Tube Scaffold Tower

Renovations rely on tube scaffold towers due to their versatility. These towers can be assembled around a large area and arranged in almost any shape. Clamps and couplers are among the vital components that hold this scaffolding together.

  • Supported Scaffolding

In situations where the ground is not very stable or the elements, such as strong winds and heavy rains, may pose a problem, the scaffolding should be firmly anchored to an existing structure for stability. Supported scaffold towers are held structurally in place by several components and then connected to a rigid structure for safety.
