                                             What are the Top Differences between Scaffold and Suspended Scaffolding?

Scaffold means different brackets that are placed for solving the issues of horizontal and vertical transportation for employees in a worksite. These are used in spots where the inner and outer walls are decorated or when it is impossible to construct a high floor in a building. Suspended scaffolding is a suspended platform that is used for modern overhead operation, and is extremely efficient in form. Know about some of the main differences between Scaffold and Suspended Scaffolding.


Scaffold is used mainly for construction, overhead installation, periphery safety grid maintenance etc. it is made across the globe in materials such as composite material, steel tube, timber, bamboo and the like. In a few projects, scaffold is used like a template. It is also used widely in mine, bridge, traffic road, municipal facility, advertising industry and a number of other departments.

Suspended scaffolding is of two types - electric and manual. It is used widely in outer wall maintenance and cleaning in high rises, curtain wall installation, outer wall construction etc. It may be used also in the construction of dams, bridges, large tanks and other engineering operations.


When compared to a scaffold, a suspended platform has many advantages. A scaffold can be used in buildings that have less than 6 floors. A scaffold height is usually around 2 m, laid one by one and accumulated. Scaffold, taking its stability into account, is used in ad plaque or low-story buildings.

However, for erecting the outer wall of building, electric hanging basket is needed. It is used always in high rise buildings that have more than 30-stories. The suspended platform, when compared to the full steel tube scaffold, is used for erecting the outer wall and has many benefits due to the economic benefits, technical benefits, flexible operation, convenience, saving of labor, mass scaffold materials savings, fast build-up speed and more. Hanging scaffold is used widely in decoration of vessels in the vessel manufacturing industry, installation of shaft elevator orbit, overhaul of large dams, maintenance and installation of large-scale cables etc.


With a suspended form of scaffolding, it is possible to save the rental fee. When a powered suspended platform is used, the pipeline use time can be reduced and the rental fee can be reduced as a result. This is very safe, easy and fast in construction. It can also save labor fee. A vertical transportation is adopted in work site during the period of construction.

When the outer frame is built up, it can reduce the operator’s labor strength greatly. In case the condition permits, a single-row protective frame can be adopted in the individual part or place. This can lower the expenses associated to vertical transportation. Suspended form of scaffolding can be used to save joist beam cost, loading and unloading fee, consumption and transportation fees.

It makes use of sub-sectional build-up, and can consume less quantity than a complete scaffold. This can significantly save low consumable cost, cleaning fee, joist steel cost, loading and unloading fee, transportation fee and consumption expenses.
