Scaffold is a common solution for access needs and reaching elevated areas on construction, mining and industrial sites. However, the process of setting up and breaking down the scaffold is inefficient and quite unsafe. It can also be inconvenient in terms of production as specialised contractors or qualified employees are required for the installation and removal process.

When working at height, scaffold provides inferior security and protection to those occupying the area. Bend-tech has a range of fully certified access platforms that a compliant with Australian Standards for a variety of situations, permanent or mobile. Our platforms provide greater safety and efficiency in all situations, increasing peace of mind and productivity on-site.

The problems with scaffold

Australian and New Zealand standards require a licensed rigger to legally erect scaffold. The rigger is responsible for the assembly and installation of rigging gear such as ropes, pulleys and winches to lift and lower position equipment. The appeal of scaffold is often its temporary nature; however, scaffold is a system that is simply less secure with far less structural integrity. A single site may need numerous scaffold to be set up and taken down, requiring extensive time and man-power, reducing productivity and efficiency.
