Introduction

Scaffolding is a temporary structure used to support construction and maintenance crew during the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and other structures. Scaffolds are used on such sites to access high areas that may otherwise be hard to reach.

There are many different types of scaffolding, including:

  • Trestle scaffolding
  • Steel scaffolding
  • Patented scaffolding
  • Suspended scaffolding
  • Cantilever scaffolding
  • Single scaffolding
  • Double scaffolding
  • Kwikstage scaffolding

Scaffolding may be made from variety of materials such as steel, aluminium, nylon, polyester, wood and bamboo.
