UKSSH Delivers Huge Savings on Cost of Loading Towers


The standard method of producing a loading tower in traditional tube and fittings can justifiably be described as probably the most complex – and time consuming - scaffolding structure on site.

UK System Scaffold Hire has developed and refined a system scaffold solution that removes the need for a scaffold design, reduces the erection time by a remarkable 80% and removes the need for regular safety inspections.

The devil’s in the detail.

It’s always the big elements of a project that get the most attention.

Ask a Safety Officer, Construction Director or Quantity Surveyor to look at a typical construction site and list where improvements can be made, and few will focus on the ubiquitous loading tower.

That’s because it’s hidden in plain sight: virtually every site needs them, they have always been made in tube and fittings and all the hassle that surrounds them is taken for granted:

  • The need to have a specialist design for each tower
  • The requirements of TG20 and SG4:15 which have undoubtedly contributed to site safety but, in a prime example of mission creep, have also resulted in a significant increase of materials used on each tower
  • The inevitable impact that additional materials and compliance with Working at Height regulations has on the number of man hours required to build a loading tower
  • The need for it to be thoroughly inspected at intervals not exceeding seven days … and that means checking EVERY fitting on EVERY tower!

 

Think about it and the standard method of producing a loading tower in traditional tube and fittings can justifiably be described as probably the most complex – and time consuming - scaffolding structure on most construction sites.
