  • Q how to clean aluminum scaffolding

    Cleaning aluminum scaffolding is a relatively straightforward process. Here are the steps you can follow:
    1.Start by removing any debris or loose dirt from the scaffolding. Use a broom, brush or compressed air to do this.
    2.Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing a mild detergent or cleaning agent with water. You can also use a specialized aluminum cleaner if you prefer.
    3. Apply the cleaning solution to the scaffolding using a soft-bristled brush or a sprayer. Make sure to cover all the surfaces of the scaffolding, paying particular attention to any areas with built-up dirt or grime.
    4. Allow the cleaning solution to sit for several minutes to loosen any stubborn stains or dirt.
    5. Rinse the scaffolding thoroughly with clean water, using a hose or pressure washer. Be sure to remove all the cleaning solution and dirt from the scaffolding.
    6. Dry the scaffolding completely with a clean cloth or allow it to air dry.
    7. Inspect the scaffolding for any remaining stains or dirt, and repeat the cleaning process if necessary.
    8.Once the scaffolding is completely clean and dry, store it in a dry, secure location to prevent further dirt or damage.
    Remember to always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and eye protection, when handling cleaning agents and using pressure washers or other cleaning equipment.
  • Q what is cantilever scaffolding


    Cantilever scaffolding, also known as projecting scaffolding, some people call it " needle scaffolding", is a type of scaffolding that is used when a building or structure cannot be accessed from the ground. It is commonly used for repairing, painting or cleaning the exterior of high-rise buildings.

    Cantilever scaffolding is supported by vertical and horizontal members that are attached to the building's structure, and it extends outwards from the building's surface. It is typically used on multi-storey buildings and can be installed at different levels of the building.

    The advantage of cantilever scaffolding is that it allows workers to access the building's façade without having to build scaffolding from the ground up. This saves time and money and reduces the amount of disruption to the building's occupants.

    However, cantilever scaffolding requires careful planning and design to ensure that it is safe and stable. It must be installed by experienced and trained professionals and must be inspected regularly to ensure that it remains secure.

  • Q tips for aluminum scaffold erection

    1. Make sure you are properly trained to erect and use mobile scaffolding.
    2. Assemble the mobile scaffolding according to the manufacturer's instructions.
    3. Check the mobile scaffolding before each use and after any modification.
    4. Make sure that the surface of the moving scaffold is level and free of holes or obstacles.
    5. Support all scaffolding horizontally and diagonally.
    6. Clamp or secure all planks.
    7. Prevent joint separation.
    8. Provide workers with a safe way to enter and exit the scaffolding.
    9. Safe access ladder.
    10. Make sure the platform has suitable guardrails (hands, midsection, toes).
    11. Make sure each wheel or caster has a brake to prevent rolling and spinning.
    12. Lock the caster brakes before climbing on the mobile scaffolding.
    13. Secure or remove all materials, equipment and personnel from the platform before moving it.
    14. Push towards the base when moving.
    15. Use the built-in ladder to reach the platform.
    16. Increase the base size of the scaffold by installing outriggers.
    17. Please refer to your jurisdiction's occupational health and safety regulations for high stability requirements.
  • Q what are working height, working platform height and scaffolding height meaning

    A working height means when workers on the scaffolding, the area of the height they can reach. 

    working platform height means the top scaffolding height.

    scaffolding height means the full height of the scaffolding.

    normally, the relationship between them shown as below:

    working height = working platform height + 2m 
    scaffolding height= working platform height + 1m safeguard
    scaffolding height= scaffolding frame height + safeguard height + casters height
  • Q what sizes of single scaffolding

    A the single scaffolding has limited width of 0.75m.
    the length of scaffolding set have 2m, 2.5m and 3m.
    the height of scaffolding is custom to clients' need.

  • Q what are the features of aluminum scaffolding

    1. Aluminum scaffolding conforms to European standard HD1004
    2. It is convenient to carry tools and carry materials up and down,especially the inclined ladder frame, which greatly increases the working space and reduces the construction time
    3. Easy to disassemble and assemble,and it is light and durable
    4. In addition to single-set construction, it can be combined into various styles, suitable for different venues, such as escalators, stairs, construction sites, etc.
    5. Various design components to meet different application needs
    6. Platform can be placed at different heights O Guardrails and skirting boards ensure safety.
