Mobilising Efficiency: The Advantages Of Using Mobile Scaffolds In Construction




Efficiency and safety are both paramount when planning any kind of construction project, and your choice of scaffolding system can significantly impact both. Mobile scaffolds, also known as mobile tower scaffolds or rolling scaffolds, have emerged as a versatile solution offering numerous advantages for construction projects in New Zealand. 


So, what makes these kinds of scaffolding systems so special? Why should you consider them over alternative solutions?


The Many Benefits Of Mobile Scaffolding Solutions


These systems have plenty of incredible perks that anyone planning a construction project should know about. Mobile scaffolds are usually used in low level situations, and can go up to 10 metres high. For projects where taller scaffolding is needed, standard scaffolding is typically used.


If you know you’ll need scaffolding for your upcoming construction project, consider a mobile system so you can experience these wonderful benefits:


Enhanced Mobility And Flexibility. One of the primary advantages of mobile systems is their unparalleled mobility and flexibility, meaning they’re easier to transport and handle than standard options.


Unlike traditional fixed scaffolding structures, these mobile versions are equipped with convenient wheels or casters, allowing them to be easily moved and positioned as needed across the construction site. This mobility enables workers to access various areas of the project site swiftly and efficiently, eliminating the need for time-consuming dismantling and reassembly of scaffolding systems.


With a mobile system, construction crews can navigate around obstacles and adapt to changing project requirements with ease. This enhanced mobility not only streamlines construction workflows but also contributes to overall project efficiency and productivity.


Quick Assembly And Dismantling. Mobile scaffolds are designed for quick assembly and dismantling, minimising downtime and optimising construction timelines. Unlike traditional scaffolding systems that require extensive setup and dismantling processes, these can be erected and taken down rapidly, saving valuable time.


The modular design of these scaffolds allows for easy assembly without the need for specific specialised tools or equipment. Construction crews can swiftly deploy them to access elevated work areas and dismantle them just as efficiently once the task is completed. This rapid assembly and dismantling capability make mobile scaffolds ideal for projects with tight deadlines or fast-paced construction schedules.


With a standard scaffolding system, setting up and taking down an extensive system may be time-consuming and tiring for your workers. Mobile systems can be set up, taken down and moved rather efficiently.


Enhanced Safety And Stability. Of course, no matter what you’re building or what kind of property you’re working on, safety should always be one of your top concerns. Safety is paramount in the construction industry, and mobile scaffolds are engineered with safety features to ensure the well-being of your workers at elevated heights. Despite their mobility, they are designed to provide stable and secure platforms for workers to operate from.


Equipped with locking mechanisms or brakes on the wheels, mobile scaffolds remain firmly in place during use, preventing accidental movement or instability. Additionally, guardrails and other safety features provide added protection, reducing the risk of falls and injuries on the job site.


If you want to fully maximise your safety precautions, it’s vital to choose a scaffolding company that has plenty of experience and always keeps safety in mind. You can also ask about edge protection to keep your workers and any bystanders protected. 


Cost-Effectiveness And Resource Efficiency. From a cost perspective, these scaffolds offer significant advantages over traditional scaffolding systems. Their modular design, rapid assembly and dismantling capabilities translate to shorter construction timelines. Furthermore, the versatility of mobile scaffolds eliminates the need for multiple scaffolding systems for different project phases, resulting in cost savings for contractors and project owners alike.


If you’re on a strict budget, talk to Access Safety Systems about your financial limitations and the cost of their services. Together, you should be able to find a good solution that meets your needs without draining your project budget. 


Streamlining Your Construction Project With Reliable Scaffolding


Mobile scaffolds have revolutionised the way construction projects are executed in New Zealand, offering unparalleled mobility, flexibility, safety and cost-effectiveness. From enhanced mobility and rapid assembly to enhanced safety features, these scaffolds are indispensable tools for modern construction professionals seeking to mobilise efficiency on the job site.


If you think that a mobile system may be right for your next NZ construction project, we encourage you to speak to us at Access Safety Systems. Our team is fast, friendly and committed to safety when setting up and taking down mobile scaffold systems.


If you’re still considering other options, we also have standard scaffolding, shrink wrapping, safety netting and fencing solutions available for our valued clients. To ensure safety and quality, we only use high-quality scaffolding from Layher and Intaks.
