Are you looking for Stairway Scaffolding? That’s the question asked by one of our recent customers, Hurjoht Singh. Here at RG Scaffolding Birmingham, we would recommend using this Stairway access Tower when painting and decorating stairways or narrow access passages within the Birmingham and West Midlands area.
Stairway Access Tower
The scaffolding has easy access from both sides of the stairwell unit to the platform is provided by a walk-through ladder frame.
How to use it?
Simply walk through the frame and climb the ladder, the frame is designed to access problems in high to reach areas above stairwells. An integrated access frame can be accessed and still be obtained on the staircase.
If there is a requirement for access above this height, it is possible to adapt a standard Single Width Ladder Frame Tower to suit this application. Where possible, fit stabilises to both sides of the tower with a maximum sideways extension of 650mm, reaching down the stairs with a maximum distance of 650mm.
Health and Safety
Never Climb onto the tower from the outside of the frame, as this can cause you to fall from a high distance. Always climb from within the structure itself, using the ladder that is provided with the scaffolding frame.
This will prove that you take health and safety seriously and will help get onto tender lists and face potential clients, many of which won’t even consider working with a contractor or company that does not have access to a qualified health and safety consultant.
Outsourcing this service also works out to be more cost-effective than hiring a full-time employee, and less time-consuming than training a current employee. It also doesn’t put a strain on resources and it removes all pressure from your shoulders (and paperwork from your desk) so that you can focus on the day to day management of your business and ensuring that your team are productive. If external health and safety support is not something you have considered before, then it’s worth getting an idea of costs and how it could add value to your business.

Scaffolding design is essential to ensure that each job has a scaffolding structure on all Birmingham sites that is tailored to the nature of the construction site and the work itself, as well as ticking off safety measures and avoiding any legal or compliance issues.
Before the scaffold designer starts work on the design, they must be made aware of any obstructions that need to be avoided or bridged over and any doorways or access routes that need to be kept clear.
