The Ladder Frame Scaffolding is a simple scaffolding. The system is based on a quick assembly of its frames, cross braces and platforms, without needing tools. The Ladder Frame Scaffolding is conceived to works of simple brickwork.
Fabricated frame scaffolds are the most common type of scaffold because they are versatile, economical, and easy to use. They are frequently used in one or two tiers by residential contractors, painters, etc., but their modular frames can also be stacked several stories high for use on large-scale construction jobs.
The scaffold consists of welded steel or aluminum frames connected by cross braces to form a framework to support scaffold planks or other scaffold platform systems.
A scaffold platform allows you to move around more while you're working, whereas a ladder would need to be repositioned if you're working on a wide area.
Scaffolds can be divided into three groups:
All suspension scaffolds must be tied or otherwise secured to prevent them from swaying, as determined by a competent person. Guardrails, a personal fall-arrest system, or both must protect each employee more than 10 feet (3.1 m) above a lower level from falling.
A structure for climbing up or down that consists essentially of two long sidepieces joined at intervals by crosspieces on which one may step.
A ladder is a piece of equipment used for climbing up something or down from something. It consists of two long pieces of wood, metal, or rope with steps fixed between them.
An example of a ladder is what someone would use to climb to the ground from a fire escape on the second floor. An example of a ladder is a person starting in an entry level position and climbing their way up to an executive position. A fish ladder.
