Types of Scaffolding > Standard (Frame) Scaffold

Tubular metal frame scaffolding systems are probably one of the most commonly used scaffold system in the construction industry. The scaffold consists of welded steel or aluminum frames connected by cross braces to orm a framework to support scaffold planks or other scaffold platform systems.

Frames are manufactured in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, the most common being a standard 5 foot by 5 foot frame and walk-through arch or arch frame

The arch frame scaffold is very common in the masonry construction sector as it allows convenient movement between the frames for distribution of materials. Outrigger brackets or side brackets can be installed on the side of the scaffold at varying levels to provide a convenient personnel platform for work at the building face.
