It is hard to imagine any industry without the idea of sustainability. Scaffolding systems must not only comply with the highest safety standards , but also be cost-efficient and durable. That's why our team is constantly looking for new solutions to make your work with and on the scaffold as sustainable as possible. Did you know that you can use your RINGSCAFF modular transoms for more than one purpose? Read more about how you can make your next scaffolding project particularly sustainable here.
A scaffold should not only be made of stable, high-quality material so you can use it for a long time, but it should also be protected against the effects of the environment to which it is exposed. That is why good scaffolding systems are protected against corrosion. In scaffolding, painting or galvanising steel are particularly popular. Read here why this is the case and which method suits your use cases most.
Ringlock scaffolding can be considered one of the most modern scaffolding systems in the world. In our last blog post, we explained the design and application areas of a modular scaffold with ringlock connection. But for whom and why is this type of modular scaffolding exactly the right one? In fact, there are many good reasons to use a ringlock scaffold like RINGSCAFF. We have summarised 5 of them for you here.
Cuplock, Kwickstage, Ringlock, you name it – there are numerous connection methods and types of modular scaffolds. Scafom-rux highly versatile modular scaffolding system RINGSCAFF, for example, belongs to the ringlock scaffolding type, also called ring scaffold or rosette scaffold. The RINGSCAFF scaffold can thus not only be erected quickly, but is also extremely resilient. Of course, the "old hands" in scaffolding have been familiar with this for a long time. But as a newbie, you first have to get an overview of the different systems and types of modular scaffolding. Read here how a ringlock modular scaffold is composed and what advantages its connection method has.
Whether you know it as 48.3 scaffold tube or 1 ½ inch tube - the diameter of a standardised scaffold tube is always 48.3 mm. But why is it sometimes called 1 ½ inch scaffold tube? Surely something doesn't fit? Read here what it's all about.
Staying flexible even when your order books are full to the brim doesn’t have to be difficult. With the option of renting scaffolding instead of buying, you save e.g. storage costs for scaffolding parts that you do not need regularly. We explain our scaffold rental process from use period of the rented scaffolding to the return transport here.
Sometimes you’re planning a project which requires special scaffolding parts you won’t ever need again or the order situation is particularly high and you need to stock up on scaffolding material for a short period of time. In these cases, scaffold rental might just be the right option for you. But how does the scaffold rental process look like, actually? We have summarised the first steps from offer request to the delivery of the rented scaffold here.
This year it is finally time again: BAUMA opens its doors in Munich from 24th to 30th October 2022. With 3,700 exhibitors on an exhibition area of over 600,000 m2, it is not only the largest trade fair in the construction industry, but also the largest trade fair in the world. And it is still growing. Everything you need to know about your visit to BAUMA and valuable tips for your stay in Munich can be found here.
System scaffolding or modular scaffolding has long since established itself on the global market. Users on the European continent, in Australasia and North and South America appreciate the easy handling, the fast assembly and dismantling times as well as high safety standards of the system scaffold. Read here why you should have it in your inventory.
Whether you know it as tube and coupler, tube and fitting or tubular scaffold, the tube and clamp scaffold has a long tradition. In this article we take a closer look at the traditional tube and clamp scaffold and answer the question why it has remained on the market until today.
BIM - Building Information Modelling - is not only a great advantage for the construction industry per se, but also for us in scaffolding when it comes to efficient planning and execution of scaffolding projects. In order to use BIM effectively for you and your clients, you need to invest in and prepare a few things. This includes suitable software. We have summarised here what this software should be able to do and why this investment can be worthwhile for you.
In last week’s post, we introduced you to the challenges the team of Scafom-rux’ client GABADI S.L. faced when assigned with the task of replacing the entire membrane of a 215-meter-long LNG-carrier. A working platform made of 800 tonnes of RINGSCAFF material had to be erected inside the tank for this purpose. Find out here how the scaffolders dealt with the difficult material supply, the octagonal shape of the tank and the sensitive membrane material, and what special role rented material played in the process.
