When working at height, the first rule is you have to have the best equipment for the job. Some pieces of kit like stepladders give you stability but not a great deal of height, and you might find that some ladders give you the height you need but you might worry about stability.
Enter the mobile scaffold tower which is the best of both worlds. But why would you use a mobile scaffold tower, and is it as convenient as a ladder? Read on to find out.
A mobile scaffold tower gives you unrivalled stability
The first obvious thing to point out us unlike conventional two-legged ladders, mobile scaffold towers don’t need to be laid against a strong structure to keep them upright and stable. For extra peace of mind, some towers also have extra support legs that can be fitted so the structure is even more stable.
Towers are versatile
Towers can be used for many different jobs, as long as they are stationed on a level surface. They can be used indoors and outdoors, as the wheels make them easily manoeuvrable, and the working platform is surrounded by support bars which will allow you to work on surfaces in front and above you (like the outer walls of a house).
They can be moved to wherever they’re needed
Standard scaffold towers have to be assembled and taken down every time they need to be used somewhere else, whereas mobile scaffold towers can be easily moved to wherever they’re needed.
They are stronger than ladders
Mobile scaffold towers have a strong cross-beamed structure, which makes them stronger than standard ladders. This means that they can take more weight and workers can potentially use heavier equipment without any safety concerns when they are working on the platform.
They are very safe
Safety is paramount when working from height, and mobile scaffold towers are designed to provide a strong, stable, and safe base to work at height from.
