When bricklayers work on scaffolding

Trestling, boxes, ladders, loose construction elements, etc. must not be used to increase the working height. On rolling scaffolding, all wheels must be braked during use. The brakes must be easy to operate without using tools. There must be no people on the scaffolding while it is being moved.

  • Work platforms With a hydraulic work platform, you can reach exactly the working height you require.
  • Vertical transport Hoisting and transport cases are ideal for use together with electric hoists. Work platforms with cranes with suction cups are ideal for storey construction. Scaffolding with trolleys provides new options for vertical transport and fitting.
  • Covering scaffolding When working on scaffolding and other open structures where employees are subjected to unpleasant weather, such structures must be covered over the winter insofar as it is possible and reasonable to do so. “Long periods” for working on scaffolding, for example, means around 6 days.
  • Scaffolding for bricklayers It is important to select a scaffold type where the various scaffold elements weigh as little as possible. Choose a scaffold type where the scaffold elements are to be handled as little as possible. The traditional heavy bricklayer scaffolding should be replaced with more lightweight forms of scaffolding and/or scaffold elements which the company is going to buy new scaffolding parts anyway.
