A Guide To Scaffolding
Scaffolding is a temporary, elevated platform with supporting structures that are used to support workers and their materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and other man-made structures. It’s used widely on site to get access to heights and areas that would otherwise be hard to get to.

We appreciate that these commercial developments we’ll be working on will require vital health and safety procedures. When we set up and erect your commercial scaffolding, we can also include security fencing and barrier systems to ensure public safety, as well as prevent noise pollution from the works being carried out, rubbish chutes for safely disposing of waste when working from a height, hoists and various types of cladding to make the works more aesthetically pleasing. All our scaffolders are also completely trained to CISRS industry recognised standards.

Here at ASC, we are more than familiar with Scotland’s unpredictable weather! When a roof is being removed, it’s important to make sure that all the elements are kept out, to prevent any damage to the building’s structure. Here at ASC, we can provide you with temporary roof scaffolding, combined with weatherproof sheeting.
Along with weatherproofing, the protective scaffolding will also protect site workers underneath and the flow of traffic from falling components or objects.
We have extensive experience in providing protective scaffolding for work on a variety of buildings, with our past work including bridges, church steeples and turrets high up in landmark city centre buildings.
