If you need a more expansive working space, staging boards are a cost-effective solution to scaffold towers.
Although scaffolding towers provide a stable working platform, you may need specific equipment or products to help you cover a larger surface area.
That’s where staging boards come in, and we’re happy to help you find the best product possible to meet your needs.
What Is a Staging/Youngman Board?
Staging boards are lightweight yet durable boards that grant more access to a broader surface. Staging boards can go up to 6.1 m and come with an optional full handrail system for better security and safety.
Most of all, staging boards are a lightweight staging solution that meets Health and Safety standards [R] and is suitable for working at height.
Do I Need Staging/Youngman Boards?
Whether it’s painting, decorating, or any commercial or industrial work, staging boards provide the convenience of performing long runs rather than continually moving up and down ladders to perform tasks in-between.
Not only is it convenient, but it’s also safer and more secure than relying on a ladder solely when working at height.
Roof work, for instance, can be challenging without the right equipment or products. If the equipment is unstable, this may lead to slips, falls, and accidents on-site.
To comply with proper safety regulations, one can always use scaffolding towers; however, due to the limited space, staging boards offer a wider area for workers to walk on and enable enhanced movement while providing a stable working height platform.
Benefits of Staging Boards
Granted, these lightweight boards aren’t as broad or as extensive as scaffolding towers, but they come with their fair share of benefits useful for many commercial and industrial applications.
Flexible & Cost-Effective
Compared to integrated scaffold decking systems, staging boards are far cheaper and more flexible. The components are also much less; therefore, it requires little to no assembly on your part.
When investing in heavy-duty equipment, it’s vital to consider the components that come with it needed for assembly and the flexibility or portability of these components.
While scaffolding towers have great portability, they’re not as flexible as staging boards.
Most of all, these lightweight boards are complementary equipment you can add for better security & safety if you’re on a budget.
Full Handrail System for Improved Safety
Most staging boards don’t come with built-in handrail systems.
These accessories must be purchased separately but are useful if you expect to use these boards to compensate for heavy foot traffic.
Handrail systems are all the more beneficial if your maintenance workers and employees are always moving from one location to another. This feature, along with the guardrails are excellent additions. [R]
With scaffolding systems, this can be difficult due to its limited space area.
Ideal If You Need a Large Working Area
When working at height, it’s not as easy to move from one repair site to another. Having to climb down and re-position the scaffold tower can be time-consuming and inconvenient.
Staging boards bridge this gap of inconvenience and make it easier for workers to travel from one site to another.
How Wide Are Staging Boards?
Staging equipment, also sometimes referred to as scaffolding boards, has an average width of 225 m and has varying lengths starting from 1.5 m up to 6.1 m.
What Are the Materials Used in Staging Boards?
The most common materials used for staging equipment is Wood and Aluminium. [R] Although you typically use staging equipment in a construction site or commercial & industrial areas, you can also use them indoors.
Suppose you choose to buy staging equipment, either brand new or second-hand; We don’t recommend using second-hand quality since a lower product quality goes against safety regulations and may place more risk for your employees. Of course, if you hire your equipment from us, we’ll check it for you.
One downside to wood materials, though, is you’ll have to change these after a certain period. Alternatively, you can opt for steel equipment, and it’s available to order online, but these are, without a doubt, more costly.
Do I Need to Hire Additional Tools and Equipment With Staging Board Hire?
You don’t need to hire additional tools or equipment along with a staging board hire; however, if you want enhanced safety and security, available accessories or parts for hire include handrail systems.
Additionally, you can also opt to hire extra equipment, such as guardrails and toeboards.
