Assembling Your Self-Lock Scaffolding Tower

You may be wondering how to repair roof tiles after a storm or to paint those tricky areas that fall just short of your ladder’s reach. Self-lock scaffolding is a quick and easy solution for home maintenance and renovations. It’s easy assembly makes this scaffolding system a popular purchase at South End Scaffolding. We manufacture scaffolding products according to client-specifications and SABS standards, guaranteeing you a safe and reliable platform to work from. That said, how simple is it to erect your own self-lock scaffolding tower?

Where to Erect Your Tower

Accessing tricky areas to paint or do repairs often requires assembly on uneven ground. If you’re using self-lock scaffolding to do indoor maintenance or for décor applications, this shouldn’t be a problem. However, you may be concerned about balancing on a tower outside where it’s easy to trip over bumpy paving and or to roll down a slanted driveway. Castor wheels provide a simple solution to this problem. They’re attached on the bottom of your tower, allowing you to move around with ease and to cover the entire breadth of your workspace without needing to lift your self-lock scaffolding system once it’s assembled. Castor wheels can also be locked to keep your tower in place. This makes it possible to work on uneven surfaces without the risk of an unsteady tower. Once locked in place you can rest assured your scaffolding will not move around.

Assembling your Self-Lock Frames

The quick and easy assembly of self-lock scaffolding may be its bestselling point. This system is made up of lightweight self-lock frames that connect effortlessly and are secured with plan braces. Plan braces are positioned diagonally across every third level of your tower, which keeps it square and stable. Knee brace and coupler sets are necessary to secure the bottom of each tower as well as tie bars to prevent it from folding open. In addition, tie bars can be used to form a safety railing at the top of your tower. This is how self-lock scaffolding is assembled, with minimum time and effort required.

Securing your Platform

Self-lock hook on boards create a stable platform to stand on. They clip onto the frame as do the self-lock hook on ladders, allowing for safe and efficient access to the top of your tower. South End Scaffolding manufactures hook on boards in different lengths and hook on ladders from 1m to 3m that can bear up to 18.65kg (3m ladders). To prevent your tools, building material or paint supplies from falling off the tower, toe boards fit easily on the self-lock frame to create a box around your platform.

Assembling your self-lock tower could not be easier. It makes accessing those hard-to-reach places safer and easier. With lightweight frames and lockable castor wheels, you will find this scaffolding system mobile and versatile for both indoor and outdoor use.
