What is Scaffolding? Scaffolding is an integral part of almost all construction projects. It provides a temporary and safe work platform for various types of works such as: construction, maintenance, repair, access, inspection, etc. Choosing the most appropriate form of scaffolding structure is an important stage in the project you are undertaking.

Type of Scaffolding :

Type of Scaffolding Following are types of Scaffolding in construction : Single scaffolding Double scaffolding Cantilever scaffolding Suspended scaffolding Trestle scaffolding Steel scaffolding Patented scaffolding

Type of Scaffolding :

Type of Scaffolding Single scaffolding Single scaffolding is generally used for brick masonry and is also called as brick layer’s scaffolding. Single scaffolding consists of standards, ledgers, putlogs etc .,  Double scaffolding Double Scaffolding is generally used for stone masonry so, it is also called as mason’s scaffolding. In stone walls, it is hard to make holes in the wall to support putlogs. So, two rows of scaffolding is constructed to make it strong.

Type of Scaffolding :

Type of Scaffolding Cantilever scaffolding This a type of scaffolding in which the standards are supported on series of needles and these needles are taken out through holes in the wall. This is called single frame type scaffolding.  Suspended scaffolding In suspended scaffolding, the working platform is suspended from roofs with the help of wire ropes or chains etc., it can be raised or lowered to our required level. This type of scaffolding is used for repair works, pointing, paintings etc..


Trestle scaffolding In Trestle scaffolding, the working platform is supported on movable tripods or ladders. This is generally used for work inside the room, such as paintings, repairs etc., up to a height of 5m. Steel scaffolding Steel scaffolding is constructed by steel tubes which are fixed together by steel couplers or fittings. It is very easy to construct or dismantle. It has greater strength, greater durability and higher fire resistance. 


Patented scaffolding Patented scaffoldings are made up f steel but these are equipped with special ouplings and frames etc., these are readymade scaffoldings which are available in the market.
