Scaffolding, also called scaffold or staging, is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and all other man-made structures. Scaffolds are widely used on site to get access to heights and areas that would be otherwise hard to get to. Unsafe scaffolding has the potential to result in death or serious injury. Scaffolding is also used in adapted forms for form-work and shoring, grandstand seating, concert stages, access/viewing towers, exhibition stands, ski ramps, half pipes and art projects. -----quoted from Wikipedia
What is suspended platform?
A suspended scaffold incorporates a suspended platforms that can be raised or lowered when in use. Other frequently used terms are ‘suspended cradle’ and ‘swing-stage’ scaffold. They can be assembled from scaffolding. Suspension platform is an efficient modern overhead operation equipment that can replace traditional scaffolding and reuse. General suspension platform can be divided into manual and electric.It is widely used in exterior wall construction, curtain wall installation and exterior wall cleaning and maintenance, and also in large tanks, bridges, dam and other works.
Advantages and Disadvantages:
The suspended platform/swing stage is generally divided into two types: pedal suspended platform and electric suspended platform, which can reduce labor intensity, improve work efficiency, and can be reused as a new type of high-altitude operation equipment. The construction cost is greatly reduced, which is only 28% of the traditional scaffolding, and the work efficiency is greatly improved.
The hanging gondola is flexible in operation, easy to shift, convenient and practical, safe and reliable. The suspended platform is used for the construction of the external wall. Compared with the steel pipe scaffolding on the external wall, the suspension platform has the advantages of fast installation, saving a lot of scaffolding materials, labor saving, convenient operation, flexibility, and better technical and economic benefits. The hotter the prefabricated buildings rise, the more and more suspended platform will be used.
In the short term, due to the limited level of the operator, especially the electric gondola, the user is required to understand the essentials of electrical maintenance; the balance torque is at least twice the overhanging torque; the knowledge intensive is higher! And the scaffolding has been used for many years, Especially the steel pipe snap-in scaffolding currently used, safety knowledge is more popular. At the same time, suspended platform and traditional scaffolding are used in different stages of engineering construction, and each has its own characteristics. The ZLP630 gondola is mainly used for the later coating construction of the exterior wall, which is convenient to move, low in cost, and relatively fast and safe. The traditional scaffolding is mainly used in the main construction and plastering stage. In this stage, the building must be erected because of the vertical closure of the building. As for safety, no one has yet made a demonstration, but from the operator’s mentality, workers can move easily on scaffolding and come and go freely, which is far better than an electric gondola.
Therefore, in terms of the overall trend and future prospects, the gondola is more competitive. In the current market, since most of the operators still use traditional scaffolding to build, this group of people has a larger base than the electric gondola operator, and there are many decisions. Traditional scaffolding still used in the project.
