Scaffold Tower

What are scaffold towers?

An access scaffold tower is a movable lightweight unit which can be used internally and externally and is a popular solution for anyone needing to safely obtain access to unreachable areas. These types of secure mobile units can be used where a ladder or working from the ground is no longer possible.

Mobile scaffolding towers can be built up quickly and are ideal for anyone wanting temporary access to multiple areas. Our towers are made of strong aluminium and are a versatile piece of gear, they have the capabilities to be raised or lowered to suit your working needs and can be disassembled and stored with ease. The access towers we supply have various components to make them a safe and moveable working platform.

When you purchase a scaffold access tower from us you will get the following:

  • Wheel castors.
  • Brace hooks.
  • Hooks for the platform.
  • Clips for toe boards.
  • Floating spigot and locking clips.
  • Collar casting.

Our safety tips for using the towers we sell.

When using a movable access tower, safety is a top priority and below are some simple safety tips to remember:

  • Never attempt to use this product in high winds (PASMA recommends ceasing work on scaffolding towers when winds reach and exceed 17mph).
  • Do not use these items as a support for any other access equipment for example ladders or trestles etc.
  • If there are any parts of the tower that are missing, or any parts faulty then you should NEVER EVER work from it.
  • If you need to move the tower around, ensure the height is reduced beforehand.
  • Ensure you are not near any power lines or any type of overhead obstruction when moving these products.
  • Always make sure the ground you are placing the scaffold tower on is level and solid.
  • Please do not attempt to move a tower whilst a person or materials are on the working area.
  • Ensure the wheel breaks are on at all times when the tower is stationary.
  • Never climb the outside of the tower to access the top platform, these products are not designed to be accessed that way. You should always access scaffold towers in the appropriate way.

This is a process that is used in relation to fall protection on mobile towers. 3T stands for “Through the Trapdoor” and is one of the appropriate methods of erecting a moveable scaffold tower and putting the installer at minimum risk. This is a recommended safe process and if you are not aware of this procedure and you are responsible for building such towers it is worth obtaining training to ensure it has been erected safely.
