So-called 'dissolved scaffolding systems' are becoming more and more relevant considering constantly improved safety requirements in scaffolding. With this type of scaffold, for example, the next working level is assembled from the level below even before the scaffold deck is attached. In an interview with the German scaffolding magazine "DER GERÜSTBAUER", our technical manager Jochen Gebauer explains why investing in SUPER RS ultimately contributes to the preservation of your existing stock.
You need variety and action in your everyday life? Is a desk job not for you? Then you already have the first prerequisites for the profession of a scaffolder. In our blog, we have already compiled an overview of how to become a scaffolder. But how are you supposed to know whether you might even be a born scaffolder? To help you out, here are the most important characteristics of a scaffolder.
The festival season is in full swing! After a two-year break, this does not only make music fans are happy again, but also the scaffolders who build stands for loudspeakers, screen supports or stages. Right now, it is more important than ever to have a reliable partner in your scaffolding supplier. Read in our blog which characteristics to look out for in a scaffolding supplier and in how far they are helpful for you.
Especially in the case of high order quantities or the need for special parts, you can increase your stock at short notice with scaffold rental and thus save storage costs. At the end of your project, you simply return the extra material. In our last post, we summarised how the rented scaffolding material should ideally look like when you return it at the end of the rental period. However, it happens from time to time that this doesn't always work out so ideally. We have summarised a few possible sources of error when returning rental equipment.
Basically, you can use your rental material just like your own. The only major difference is that you can return it at the end of the project. Therefore, you should always keep an eye on the condition of the material. You can read more about what you should pay attention to when returning your rental equipment here.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is becoming increasingly relevant in the construction industry. The method has already been or is planned to be made a requirement for public construction projects in many countries. And BIM also has the potential to make work considerably easier for scaffolders.
Have you ever heard BIM? Building Information Modeling is actually used more and more in the construction industry. And this also applies to scaffolding. So, if you want to be well positioned for the future, you should deal with the topic early on. But what does BIM actually mean? We have explained the method briefly here.
Extraordinary large buildings and structures are always an impressive sight and they almost automatically become tourist magnets. But while we are craning our necks to see the top of them, hardly anyone thinks back to the building phase. Today we want to change that and introduce you to a few of the biggest scaffolding projects in construction and renovation. Because the enormous architectural and structural achievements behind the world's most impressive buildings would hardly be possible without scaffolding.
This year, we are once again in for a particularly hot summer. In parts of southern Europe, temperatures have already reached over 40 degrees. The heat is also a big challenge for your work on the scaffold. Read here what you can do to get through the hot working days.
Your safety on the scaffold is not only about PPE and a high-quality scaffolding system but also about the proper maintenance of your scaffolding material. So, before you even begin to erect your scaffolding on site, you should make sure that all components are safe to use. Read here how to keep your scaffolding material in good condition.
Material transport during scaffold assembly and dismantling does not necessarily have to be labour- and time-intensive. With clever scaffolding solutions, you can significantly increase the time and cost efficiency of your scaffolding projects.
