If you’re looking for a tower to use safely in areas with electrical hazards, GRP/Fibreglass scaffold towers are the solution to your problems.

For the safety of your company and your employees’ health, Fibreglass towers minimise risk in the workplace and provide security & protection for your installation and repair jobs.

What Is a GRP Scaffold Tower?

A GRP/Fibreglass scaffold tower is a non-corrosive and non-conductive tower ideal for performing any repair or installation jobs in electric-sensitive areas.

Due to their fibreglass build, GRP towers are appropriate for specific areas where aluminium scaffold towers are not ideal.

These refer to areas where an explosive atmosphere may occur.

Thanks to the non-corrosive and also non-conductive properties of GRP scaffold towers, investing in one provides a safe working load for your company, employees, and maintenance workers.

Do I Need a GRP Scaffold Tower Hire?

Think power lines, electrical faults, and railway tracks. [R] All these elements carry the risk of where an explosive atmosphere may occur.

Using aluminium products or equipment near electric-sensitive areas can lead to oxidisation, corrosion, or combustion, which is a severe safety measure one can’t simply neglect.

For this reason, you need equipment or a product that can handle these risks efficiently and, overall, provide a safe working platform for any on-site jobs in these areas. For some smaller jobs this could be GRP Podium Steps and GRP Ladders

Investing in a GRP scaffold tower hire benefits your workers and the company by making it safe to use in the rail industry or electrical engineering applications.

GRP scaffold tower hire also comes with a ladder system, making it easy to access equipment safely, but also securely.

Benefits of GRP/Fibreglass Scaffold Towers

What makes a GRP scaffold tower different from aluminium or alloy scaffold towers? These benefits may be able to shed some light and provide better insight.

Ideal for Zone 1 Areas

You’re already aware of how dangerous it can be to use any mobile device in a petrol station.

Smoking a cigarette near the petrol pump, for example, can lead to the smoke vapour igniting and, in effect, cause an explosion.

These dangerous or hazardous areas are classified as zones, specifically, zone 0, zone 1, and zone 2. [R]

Manufacturers design hazardous equipment products with each of these zones in mind and a GRP scaffold tower is a clear example of this and is ideal for zone 1 areas.

Zone 1 areas carry the risk of an explosion due to any faulty repair or maintenance operations and leakages.

This zone applies to working in railways, repairing electrical lines, telephone exchanges, and any other area that may lead to an explosion or “spark.”

Non-Conductive and Non-Corrosive Properties

These properties provide a safe working height platform for your employees in electric-sensitive areas and make it resistant to any damage caused by gasoline or harsh chemicals and electrolytic corrosion.

Non-Oxidising

The non-oxidising benefit keeps the surfaces of your tower residue-free and clean, which is essential for hygienic purposes.

Non-Sparking

When repairing electrical lines or performing any electrical task, a non-sparking product provides safety against any vapour, dust, or combustible elements.

Lightweight, Durable Frame

The lightweight, durable frame of a GRP tower allows you to transport it quickly to the site of installation or repair.

Working in high-voltage areas requires a stable & durable working height platform to carry out maintenance operations safely.

Paired with the non-conductive, non-corrosive, and non-sparking properties, maintenance/repair workers will have a secure working platform to use.

FAQs

Is It Safe to Use Scaffold Towers?

In our experience, it is safe to use a scaffold tower, granted you follow the manufacturer’s instructions of proper capacity workload and use the best practices when working at height.

When working at a particular platform height, especially near electrical lines or in a high voltage area, please note that you are still required to wear proper PPE at all times. [R]

What Is the Difference Between Standard and Narrow Width Scaffold Towers?

The main difference is the amount of space your workers have to work. Standard or double width scaffold towers measure at 1.45 m wide, while narrow types measure at 0.85 m.

Depending on your needs and applications, a wider frame allocates more space for your workers.

However, a narrow or single width (0.85 m) can be useful in an area where the surrounding area space is limited or restricted.

Do I Need to Hire Additional Tools and Equipment With the GRP Tower Hire?

No, you don’t need to hire additional equipment or tools since the GRP tower hire comes with a complete set of equipment you can use, such as:

  • Locking castors
  • Toeboard
  • Braces/poles
  • Stabilisers
  • Integrated ladder system
  • Working height platform

 

This availability also means you don’t have to outsource tools from various tool hire shops needed for the GRP tower hire.

However, you may want to hire a hoist or pulley system for larger tools so you can access these safely without risk. For smaller tools, you can use a tool belt as well.
