Wide or narrow aluminium scaffold

You decide whether you need a wide (1.35 metre) or narrow scaffold (0.75 or 0.90 metre). The wider scaffold has two platforms along each other, giving you a larger working surface. This is very useful if you work for a long time in the same place. A narrow scaffold has only one platform on every level, which makes it suitable when you have little space to work in.

Which platforms should you choose?

Based on the length of the platforms, you can determine the width of the scaffold. You can actually make this as large or small as you wish. Our platforms are available in sizes of 1.85 metre, 2.45 metres and 3.05 metres. If you opt for a scaffold from the RS TOWER 4 series, then you can choose lengths of 1.85 metre and 2.45 metres.

The material of the platform is also extremely important. The choice consists of wooden platforms or Fiber-Deck® platforms. Wood is cheaper than Fiber-Deck®. In comparison, Fiber-Deck® is 30% lighter, super-strong and indestructible. If you regularly assemble and disassemble a scaffold, you can certainly envision the positive effect of this version on your body. The maximum load per platform is 250 kilos.

How high should I build my scaffold?

Perhaps the most important factor is determining your working height. This of course is related to the height that you have to reach. The working height is equal to the platform height of a scaffold plus 2 metres, but that also depends on your own height. The taller you are, the higher the working height.

The maximum working height of a narrow scaffold is 10.2 metres, both indoors and outdoors. You can install a wide scaffold indoors up to a height of 14.2 metres. The platform heights are therefore 8.2 metres and 12.2 metres respectively.
