Fixed or mobile scaffolding?

One of the aspects that must be clear is whether the scaffold must be mobile or fixed. For example, if work is to be carried out for the rehabilitation of facades or the assembly of a stage, the client will undoubtedly need a scaffolding that remains static. But sometimes it is necessary for the scaffolding to be mobile to be able to move it easily and for its use to be more versatile than in the case of fixed ones. In both cases, at DR.SAFETY DR.SCAFFOLD we have different options for both fixed and mobile scaffolding and we can provide the best solution for your project.

Scaffold material

Depending on the work environment or the type of materials to be handled, it will be necessary to opt for a steel, aluminum or fiberglass scaffold. The latter are those used for work with electricity since this material isolates from possible electric shocks. They are characterized by having striking colors since in this way they are more visible in the work environment. Fiberglass scaffolds are also often used in refineries, docks, chemical industries, as they prevent sparks from rubbing against other elements and do not pollute in sanitary environments.

One of the most popular types of scaffolding is aluminum as they are light, easy to assemble, and disassemble, as well as easy to transport. Its height can be adjusted without a problem and there are all kinds of options on its dimensions. Another of the criteria that must be taken into account before choosing one or another option is whether the scaffolding is needed for interior or exterior since the material can also be decisive depending on the type of project to be carried out.


Scaffold height and weight


It is important to be clear about the maximum height at which you want to put your feet, this determines the material to be considered, complying with the rules and, taking into account that it allows you to use it for work at lower heights. On each model of scaffolding, we can offer different options to our clients according to the height and number of people who will carry out the work to be done.

Scaffold storage and dimensions

The dimensions, we have to analyze the most appropriate, for the work to be done, if space is needed on the platform for one or more people, if the type of material we handle on the scaffold is bulky if the environment where we have to move regularly the scaffold is not very wide. If we have to transport the scaffolding, to do the work, we must consider the measures that the vehicle we have gives us.

Options including scaffolding
