WHAT IS A SWING STAGE SCAFFOLD?

A swing stage scaffold is a temporary working platform suspended from 2 points.  With the ability to raise and lower the swing stage scaffold platform to a required height using a pair of electric traction hoists, which travel up or down flexible steel wire ropes.   Swing Stage Scaffolds are suspended from temporary free-standing support structures called rostrums.

VERSATILE SWING STAGE SCAFFOLDING

Alphasafe's fleet of swing stage scaffolds and rostrums are formed using precision engineered European modular systems and can be designed to fit specifically into a variety of site conditions and dimensions

Alphasafe can design a broad variety of versatile swing stage scaffold platforms for any access problems.  Our swing stage platform options include:

  • Traditional swing stage drops,
  • Monorail swing stage solutions
  • Cantilevered swing stage platforms
  • Custom engineered configurations and components
  • Stages up to 16m in length
  • Corner sections
  • Single person cages
  • Narrow and compact swing stage platforms

WHY USE A SWING STAGE SCAFFOLD?

Efficiency, Safety, and Value are some of the many advantages of swing stages.  Because swing stages can access full facades, and they contain fewer parts compared to a scaffold to access the same area.  They require less equipment and less labour which makes them quicker to install, with a much lower cost than scaffolding.

Swing stages are an effective and safe means of accessing high level works without the need to install a scaffold or tie to a building and minimise disturbance to the daily operations of your building or project

They provide a safe, fast and cost-effective method of getting the right tradesman to the right point at the right time on your project whether it’s on a façade or within an industrial plant.

 

ADVANTAGES OF SWING STAGE SCAFFOLDING:

Typical advantages include:

  • Reduced manual handling risks compared to scaffolding
  • Rapid installation times can aid project schedule
  • Reduced labour and transport costs compared to scaffolding
  • No tying to the building structure is required
