If you need scaffolding towers, accessories, fittings, beams or more and wish to to buy, rent or want us to erect scaffolding on your behalf, Horsham Scaffolding can supply all your needs. We stock a wide range of products and are constantly keeping track of new and improved products when they come to market.
Scaffolding tubes are one of the basic materials and components used in scaffolding. Tubes can either be steel or aluminium. However there are some tubes which are comprised of glass fibre.
Tubes come in a variety of lengths and the industry standard diameter for the tubes are 48.3mm.
We stock both steel and aluminium tubes. The main difference between the two are that aluminium is a lower weight than the steel so it has a greater flexibility to it and is easier to construct. Due to the weight difference and ease of construction, the aluminium tubes are often the more popular.
You can buy tubes from us and then cut them down to size, or we can cut them for you. You can also hire tubes from us.
To save you the hassle of erecting your own scaffolding, we can also construct the scaffolding for you. Please visit our services page for more information.
Scaffolding is impossible to use without boards as they provide a working surface for those using scaffold. The boards are usually wood and tend to come in three standard thicknesses. Usually, customers will use the 38mm board but we also stock 50mm and 63mm.
In addition to the wooden boards we also stock:
Fire retardant boards, Kiln dried boards, Plastic boards, Laminate boards, Steel boards
Scaffold fittings generally come in drop forged or pressed steel and we can provide both materials.
We stock doubles, singles, swivels, joints, girder couplers (used in pairs), roofing couplers, left and right board retainers, tube clamps, base plates, pressed sleeves.
Couplers are the fittings you will need in order to hold the scaffold tubes together. There are three basic coupler types – right-angle couples, putlog couples and swivel couplers. We stock each of these.
We stock the preferred system scaffolding used by customers in the UK – Kwikstage, Scaflok and Layher.
Each of these systems can be used for nearly every job type and are safe to use if you are erecting the scaffolding yourself.
Kwikstage is the system which most people use today as it is cheaper than the Scaflok system.
The Layher all-round scaffolding system is one of the best scaffolding systems available in today’s market. It is manufactured in Germany and boasts a 360° connection technology meaning it can be used for the widest variety of projects. It is most commonly chosen by industrial and commercial customers.
Beams are an important part of the scaffold structure because they offer openings and bridges within a structure. They can be used to spread the load across the scaffold. In other words, they are needed when scaffolding cannot meet the needs of access due to load restrictions. They can be used with crash decks, temporary roofing, mobile platforms and many other structures.
Beams are different and will have different qualities. Always account for the strength of the beam you are using and take into consideration the load it will need to carry and the span needed.
At Horsham Scaffolding we have a huge range of beams. We offer alloy beams. These are high quality yet lightweight beams and they can be used with all types of scaffold.
We also stock aluminium beams. These are cheaper than most other kinds of beams but still perform as well as most other materials. Due to their lightweight material they are easier to construct and so are often favoured by our customers.
These beams are available to be bought and hired from Horsham Scaffolding. We can also use them if you wish to have scaffold erected by us and we can offer advice on the best beams to use taking into consideration what access you need, the load you anticipate they will need to carry and their strength.
At Horsham Scaffolding we offer a comprehensive range of scaffold towers. They are available in single or double width and we would advise that these are far more stable than using ladders.
Towers are the equipment to use if you are working high off the ground. They can be used by commercial and domestic customers. Towers sit square on the ground and so do not have a tilt or angle and are not “propped” against a building. They provide a very secure base in which to work from if you are painting, re-tiling a roof or checking chimneys, for example.
There is a large range of scaffold towers available on the market. You can have a fixed scaffolding tower which needs to be taken apart and then erected again each time it needs to be moved. Or you can choose the mobile scaffold tower which has specials casters to enable the tower to be moved.
The towers we stock come in steel or aluminium. For jobs which will take a long time, steel would be the wisest choice as it is more durable. It is also the more expensive material choice. However it is not advised to use aluminium for tasks which require it to be used over a long period of time. Aluminium is the preferred choice for quick jobs or for occasional use.
For more advice about scaffold towers please do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you choose which is the best kind of tower for the work you need completing.
We provide a huge range of scaffold accessories so we can accommodate all the needs for a wide range of projects. However, if you cannot see an accessory you need in the list below, please call us as we will be able to help.
