Scaffolding Counselor

Scaffolding was probably used by humans in ancient times to build the sometimes spectacularly high buildings. Since then, of course, they have changed a lot.

Scaffolding from antiquity to today

One of the ancient wonders of the world was the Egyptian Pharos, also known as the Lighthouse of Alexandria. While the pyramids still do not really know how they were built and most professionals today adopt a kind of thread lamp, so none Scaffolding , the Pharos must have been built by means of scaffolding. It was also not formed from tons of stone blocks, making the use of scaffolding all the more likely.
The Scaffolding probably made of wood or the very common bamboo and were kept with sisal or other fiber plants as strings. Since plants of all kinds do not survive thousands of years, bamboo is considered as the most likely material, since wood was always scarce in Egypt and rather needed for the production of tables etc.
From the Middle Ages to modern times were Scaffolding formed in Europe from squared timbers and Rüststangen.
From the 18th century began the use of iron as a material for Scaffolding from the middle of the nineteenth century, they were enormously refined, as iron and steel could now be made much finer and also bent. The resulting Scaffolding are today referred to as framework trusses.
Finally, in 1952, the first system scaffold was introduced, which already looks very similar to scaffolding used today. System scaffolds made of aluminum are considerably lighter than their predecessors made of iron, to the system of course allows a much faster assembly and disassembly with high security.

What should be considered when buying

Hobby hobbyists will probably need a small stand or rolling scaffold with a working height of about four meters. However, even such scaffolding is already subject to general building inspectorate specifications, which also makes sense, because standing on a scaffold is never without danger. It makes sense, therefore, not to succumb to the price charm of a no-name manufacturer from the Far East, but a scaffolding, if you rarely need it, borrow or possibly with a neighbor or the like to share the purchase.

The currently used scaffolding forms in the professional field

Essentially, four types of scaffolding are used in Germany today.
The type of scaffolding that is most commonly used is the scaffolding that works on facades inside and outside buildings. Stand and rolling scaffolds are also used, which are mainly used by do-it-yourselfers or small craft businesses.

A suspended scaffold is used on special structures where a scaffold would fail: bridges are the main „customer“ for hanging scaffolding. Hanging scaffolding today often serves a second purpose as an advertising medium: Bridges are buildings that are visible from afar and can be used by various companies as advertising space here.

A cantilever scaffolding is in the blanketlet in and then hang down from the ceiling. It is basically a „reversed“ scaffold.

In the case of a Konsolgerüsts consoles are hung in cast-in suspension loops. These loops must then be removed again and accordingly the holes are plastered or they remain as permanent suspension loops exist, which is the case especially in maintenance-intensive buildings or large equipment.

In Germany today, aluminum or iron are the main materials used for scaffolding. Wood has become rare in our country but is still widely used in less developed countries.

The Big Five

The five largest scaffolding manufacturers in Germany today are:
Layher, Alfix, Assco, MJ Plettac and Peri.
