Aluminium vs Steel Scaffolding

Construction Scaffolding is an important investment for New Zealand businesses and people who work in the sector. Equiptec has produced the Multiscaff range of aluminium scaffolding to ensure that this investment pays dividends long into the future.

The key advantage of aluminium over steel scaffolding is that aluminium scaffolding is so much lighter than steel alternatives, while retaining the superior strength needed in such  crucial pieces of equipment.

Though aluminium scaffolding systems are less moderately priced than steel, over time the greater efficiency of aluminium systems will work in your favour.

You will notice lower transport costs, with less weight requiring less fuel to transport aluminium scaffolding systems

Less weight also means that the system is easier to move around and set up for your team, with crane costs and lifting incidents minimised, increasing safety while giving nothing away on performance.

Being less labour intensive also quickens the set up and dismantling times on Multiscaff systems, lowering the cost of these processes to your business.

Lighter aluminium scaffolding also means that Multiscaff scaffolding is less likely to damage the structure being worked on or the surrounding environment, and on sites where there are weight restrictions, aluminium scaffolding is obviously preferred.  

Furthermore, alumininium does not rust. It can corrode, but when it does the affected area will form into aluminium oxide, which is a very hard material that works to actually prevent further corrosion.

So choose Multiscaff Aluminium Scaffolding for all your commercial & industrial scaffolding needs and benefit from the extra safety, handling advantages and flexibility that makes aluminium scaffolding the industry’s number one material of choice.
