The days of using ladders for builds, especially taller constructions, are a thing of the past. Scaffolding forms an integral part of the construction industry and is needed as they provide stable working platforms when working on structures (walls, columns, etc) where the height is greater than 1,5 metres. Whether needed for new builds or repairs on existing structures, ensuring that quality materials are used in scaffolding is of the utmost importance.

Why is Buying Scaffolding from a Reputable Supplier Preferred in the Long Run?

Construction companies use scaffolding as it provides a more secure structure during a build, and as such, should be purchased from a reputable supplier. Cutting corners when buying can be detrimental in the long run as sub-standard materials are used, especially when purchasing equipment online, sight unseen.

There are certain factors that need to be taken into consideration before taking the plunge to buy that will ensure that you have bought scaffolding of the highest quality and from a reputable supplier.

Steps to Consider Before Buying

First and foremost, you need to research the supplier. Make sure that the supplier you choose has the necessary skills and experience to provide scaffolding from materials that are safe and durable. Standards need to be met so the supplier you buy from needs to work to recognised SABS standards. Avoid manufacturers using unspecified materials and knock-off products as they are not held to the same quality control standards.

A reputable company will offer high-tech scaffolding. Although it is more expensive, it is better in the long run as it is more adaptable and provides better stability, which in turn avoids unforeseen hassles on the job site.

Unique markings indicate where it has been manufactured, which makes it easier to locate and quarantine any defective products. If there is material failure, there will be no problem tracking the parts.

Strong technical support needs to be offered in the event of failure. Having a reputable supplier that can be on hand to assist with any failures will ensure a build on schedule.
