Scaffold is a temporary structure that is primarily used to support people and is used in the construction industry for the repair of building and other large structures. It is normally a modular system of metal pipes that are known as tubes in the UK, however it can be made out of other materials. Bamboo is still used in some of the Asian counties. The European standard specifies that performance requirement and methods of structure and design for access and working scaffolding. There are now requirements that have to be followed in the structure that reply on the adjacent structure for stability. These requirements have to be applied when using working scaffolding. The purpose of scaffolding is to provide a safe place to work that also has safe access for the work to be carried out and completely. The documents will tell you what the performance requirements are for the working scaffolding. These are substantially independent of the materials of which the scaffolding is made. This standard is to be followed for the basis of enquiry and design. However there are rules that have to be followed for structural design, these are particular relevant to scaffolding that are made out of certain materials.
