It wasn’t too long ago that if you wanted to have any work at height completed you only really had two options. First, you could use a ladder but this would make it very difficult to complete certain tasks. The second option was to hire in professionals who had access to specialist equipment and platforms and therefore could carry out the job.
But it is now possible to make use of scaffold towers at home for DIY projects. This opens up a whole world of possibilities. So let’s have a look at some of the benefits of using a scaffold tower for projects at home.
Greater safety and protection
There’s no doubt that scaffold towers provide the user with a greater level of safety and protection for working at height than using a ladder. Modern scaffold towers are built with safety as the first consideration, so you know that you are using a piece of equipment that protects you as best as possible from any falls or other injuries.
It’s unfortunately true that many people try to use a ladder in conditions that simply are not suitable and can end up injuring themselves. It’s usually far safer to use a scaffold tower.
A scaffold tower is a hugely versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a huge variety of tasks. Most models have adjustable height so they can be customised to suit a specific purpose. So whether you’re painting, hanging Christmas decorations or carrying out maintenance and repairs, these can be useful to you.
Scaffold towers are actually highly convenient – easy to assemble and take down without any hassle, this can be quickly learned and you won’t need extra help. This means that you can carry out complicated jobs efficiently without having to get others involved.
Saving you money
It’s worth remembering that using a scaffold tower is a great way to save money. Rather than having to spend a significant amount of money to use professionals who have access equipment, you can simply make use of your own tower. The scaffold tower is a one off investment that allows you to complete cost effective DIY and maintenance on your home.
Can be hired
It should also be pointed out that it is additionally possible to hire a scaffold tower if you don’t need to own one and would prefer to simply have it for a one off project.
