A hanging or hung scaffold is an independent scaffold that hangs from a separate structure but is incapable of being lowered or raised when in use.
You should consider implementing the control measures below for a hung scaffold:
Single Pole Scaffolds consist of just one row of standards that are connected by ledgers. Putlogs are then fixed to the ledges and built into the structures or building wall.
This type of scaffold depends on the structure against which it is placed for support. It is important to ensure that none of the components of the single pole scaffold are removed before dismantling.
Suspended scaffold is that which incorporates a suspended platform that can be lowered or raised when in use. A swing-stage scaffold is an excellent example of a suspended scaffold.
Additional information is in the guide to suspended scaffolds.
A tower scaffold is an independent scaffold that comprises of 4 vertical standards connected transversely and longitudinally or 2 frames in plan connected transversely thus creating a one-bay scaffold.
A mobile scaffold is a tower scaffold that’s mounted on wheels. Additional information can be found in the Information Sheet: Tower and Mobile Scaffolds.
