Scaffolding and scaffolding equipment comes in quite handy when you are remodeling your home or garage. In fact, it provides a multitude of benefits, even when you are only using a single wall of scaffolding. If you remodel your garage and build upward to give the garage a second story, you can actually construct scaffolding "in the round" to work on this project. Here are just some of the related benefits to working with scaffolding in this fashion.
It Reinforces the Strength of Each Side of Scaffolding
Imagine three or four sides of scaffolding all connected at the corners via 90-degree brackets. This is essentially what "in the round" or "wraparound" means when referring to a scaffolding structure of this type. The benefit, of course, is that the scaffolding attaches to each side and reinforces the strength of the scaffolding overall. It is very difficult to shake the scaffolding and try to make it wobble when it is connected in this fashion.
You Can Place All of Your Supplies on One Level
On each level of scaffolding, you can place buckets and tools for use. As you work on each new level of the garage, you do not have to constantly climb down to grab what you need. You can walk to a corner or to the edge of a scaffolding platform to get tools or supplies. You can do this to each new level of remodeling and construction on which you are working.
Your Help Can Be on the Same Level as You
Let's say that you want to take the roof off of your garage in big chunks. That is incredibly difficult to do alone, and not much easier when you have help, but no scaffolding. When your help is present, and you are working from scaffolding, you and your crew of helpers can detach the roof of the garage, lift it up in chunks, and move it toward a dumpster that you have placed in front of or in back of the garage. All of this is accomplished by standing on the same level of scaffolding and moving about on the platforms in the direction of the dumpster.
Additionally, if you need to cover up the garage rooftop or construction with a large tarp to protect it from the weather, it is much easier to stretch it across the expanse of the structure when your helpers each take a side of tarp and a side of scaffolding. By walking away from you on the platforms of the scaffolding, you get an unfurled tarp. Then everyone can attach and secure the tarp at the point where they have stopped on the scaffolding. It goes much quicker than trying to attach a couple corners of tarp on one side, and then trying to roll it out over the top of the structure as you go, hoping that the wind does not take the tarp off while you are trying to finish this task.
If You Fall off of the Scaffolding, the Scaffolding Will Not Topple on You
In most instances, you are safely hooked onto your scaffolding to prevent serious falls. In the event that you do fall and/or attempt to grab at the scaffolding's vertical bars or horizontal platforms as you fall, you cannot take the scaffolding with you. Its tight connections to the other sides of the scaffolding prevent the scaffolding from falling. That means that you cannot and will not be able to pull the scaffolding down on top of yourself when you fall and try to grab on to prevent your fall (but you fall anyway).Share
