Buying scaffolds that can be simply erected whenever you or team members need to reach second-story heights or higher is probably on your list if you plan to work on more multi-story buildings in the future. Of course, there are H-frame, Towers, and other systems to choose according to work or site needs, but the issue which could concern you most is the material of the scaffolds you buy. Fiberglass seems to be an unusual or uncommon choice, but as it has the following features and benefits, you might want to rely on this material for your own scaffolding.
Fiberglass Is Lightweight
Your team must transport scaffolds to and from client sites. They must arrange each piece, do their work, and finally dismantle all the components and transport them back to your storage facility, wherever that is. Not only could it be uncomfortable for them to lug around heavy, bulky, and dense metal pieces, but their discomfort could also cause delays in the actual work getting performed. You owe it to the team to think about fiberglass scaffolds. Fiberglass tends to feel less heavy. This will enable faster movement and quicker setup.
Fiberglass Doesn't Rust
Unlike steel alloys or regular aluminum scaffolds, fiberglass isn't ever going to rust on you. You won't have to determine how to avoid corrosion. There's no moment spent hoping that the scaffolds aren't so rusty that they'll break and jeopardize anyone's safety.
Fiberglass Is Less Conductive than Metal
Metal is excellent for electrical conductivity. However, on a site where your team must work, conductivity isn't wanted. In fact, some welding or electricity-related jobs could be downright panic-inducing unless fiberglass scaffolds are standing there. You can expand the construction jobs you accept because the fiberglass makes you and the team safer.
Fiberglass Is Customizable
Your work is likely to be seen by anyone with access to the site. That can be strangers driving on the road, competitors, and possible clients. Standing out and being seen might not be a major priority as you're working, but it can still help to catch people's eyes. Fiberglass scaffolds are customizable in noticeable colors. Causing heads to turn toward the site and your work could be rather beneficial in attracting those who could give your team a future project.
Scaffolds of all materials have their own benefits and features. Fiberglass, however, offers a great deal for your team. Look at samples or discuss them with scaffold distributors before ultimately choosing.Share
