Why invest in a scaffold tower?
From serious DIYers to trade professionals, scaffold towers can make all kinds of tasks simpler. Ideal for undertaking anything from rendering and plastering, to more heavy-duty jobs, such as bricklaying and roofing, scaffold towers offer huge versatility making them one of the most popular products at Browns Ladders.
Top 3 reasons for choosing scaffold towers
- They enable you to reach heights safely
Working safely should always be your number one priority, and when you’re working from a height, a scaffold tower promises that all important stability and security. Scaffold towers give you extra reach and stability compared to a regular ladder. Although some ladders can reach as high as scaffold towers, they may not be as secure when being used at maximum reach.
- They offer a spacious and secure work platform
Another reason why scaffold towers are a worthwhile investment is because they offer the user a solid platform to work from, as opposed to a rung or step. The size of the platform makes work more comfortable, while the shape and surface area ensure your feet are placed flat, instead of positioned awkwardly on a narrow area. This means there’s less chance of slipping.
- They’re easy to assemble and transport
Most modern mobile scaffold towers are designed so that they can be easily erected and dismantled. This helps prevent accident during set up and dismantle and generally makes working on the job that little bit easier.
At Browns Ladders we have a huge range of scaffold towers available for purchase, some more suited to DIY work, others for more heavy-duty construction jobs. Below you’ll find a few of our top picks.
