When you have a massive renovation project at home or in your field site, you might need a little extra height advantage. A bridge beam scaffold tower is a great tool to help your projects gain a little lift.
Bridgebeams are safer, more efficient, and more versatile than other platform options for you.
Before you decide which one to hire, read below as we show you why to hire a Bridgebeam scaffold tower for your next project.
What Is Bridge Beams Scaffold Tower
Bridge beams are beams which link two prefabricated scaffold towers [R]. These beams can support a platform, so you have a safer and larger space to move around in.
Bridge beams let you extend your working platform so you or your employees can get more done on higher areas without risking accidents and falls in your construction site.
Do I Need a Bridgebeam Hire?
Installing bridgebeams with your scaffolding comes with many benefits, like expanding your working space. Bridgebeams also give you the ability to work in cluttered areas that you may need to clear above.
A bridgebeam access tower hire is a cost-effective, timesaving, and space-saving way to get suitable bridge beams and scaffold towers for your project.
You can have your equipment delivered, and once you’ve finished using it, we’ll collect the equipment for you.
And you don’t have to worry about costs for minor damage to the equipment. Most hire companies offer reasonable damage fees. We provide free damage waiver on any equipment you hire from us.
Benefits of a Scaffold Tower with Bridges
More Working Space
Bridgebeam scaffold towers improve the safety of your elevated workspace by giving you or your employees a bigger, safe working platform to move around in.
Working on a ladder can be uncomfortable for extensive construction work. With bridge beams, you don’t have to worry about gaps. Bridge beams give you one large, uninterrupted working area.
Works Well With Obstacles
Because bridge beams are aluminium beams which link two aluminium towers, you can work at height without needing to install more legs or scaffolding underneath. Other systems to consider are the use of youngman staging boards with handrail.
Bridge beams are a great way to work overhead without needing to take up more space on the ground. You can install the bridge beams above obstacles like heavy equipment or furniture. For smaller tasks cantilever towers may suit your project.
Safer and More Stable
Ladders are only suitable equipment if you’re working on a project with a short duration and a low risk. A tower with bridge beams is safer to use for long periods.
When properly installed, your employees will be safe working for an entire day without worrying about dangerous falls.
How Long Should a Bridgebeam Be?
We recommend that you hire a bridgebeam that suits the space you’re working.
The bridgebeams here at Lakeside-Hire comes in four available deck lengths: 1.9m, 2. 5m, 3.1m or 4.1m.
You can use these bridgebeams with BoSS 1.8m or 2. 5m deck length, single or double width towers.
What Should I Look For When Hiring Bridgebeams?
You can’t just hire any bridgebeam. We recommend that you check the towers you hire to meet the European safety requirements.
When checking the bridgebeams on delivery, make sure the manufacturer made them from lightweight aluminium. Aluminium is durable and supports a safe working platform.
More safety details you should watch out for include sufficient guardrail [R], handrails and toeboards [R]. These can make your bridgebeams compliant with health and safety along with your own well planned risk assessment.
