The Strengths and Applications of Travelling Scaffolding Supplies

Travelling scaffolding serves for many purposes. For example, it can be used for building construction, outdoor ad board erection as well as indoor decoration. Ordinary travelling scaffolding has roller-bearing traverses which are interconnected and the distance between the traverses can be widened to allow the distance between the rollers to increase for various purposes.
Compared to conventional scaffolding frameworks, travelling scaffolding has many advantages. First of all, travelling scaffolding enjoys high efficiency in erection and dismantling. It saves manual labor which only one worker is required to erect or dismantle the scaffolding with a steel hammer. The trouble of screw connections of conventional scaffoldings is avoided. Still, it is time-saving. It is said by scaffolding manufacturers that it is 3 to 5 times quicker to erect or dismantle travelling scaffolding than erect or dismantle conventional screw-connected ones. Therefore, travelling scaffolding supplies are popular with household renovation and small-scale construction projects such as the erection of platform or auditorium.
Second is the high loading capacity. Vertical beams of travelling scaffolding are fixed in co-axial connections while horizontal beams are connected to vertical beams with cup locks. It means the axis leads of vertical beams and horizontal beams converge at the joint which is within the framework surface. Besides, the joint members are resistant to bending forces and enjoy excellent anti-torque performance. This design ensures the stability of the scaffolding structure and allows it to bear heavy load. It is estimated that the loading capacity of travelling scaffolding is 15% higher than that of ordinary clamp type scaffolding structures.
Third is easy maintenance. Travelling scaffolding doesn't apply screw connections. This means that the joint members are less susceptible to corrosions. Therefore, rust or corrosion won't  affect the erection and dismantling of the scaffolding and won't pose threat to working safety either. Besides, travelling scaffolding is convenient for transportation. The maximum length and weight of ordinary travelling scaffolding are respectively 3130 mm and 40.53 kg. So travelling scaffolding can be easily transported from one construction site to the other.
The last advantage is universal purposes of travelling scaffolding. Travelling scaffolding comes in different sizes and shapes with different loading capacity according to the purpose of construction project. For example, travelling scaffolding can be double-pole type, single-pole type. It can also be used as material hoist frame, climbing scaffolding or prop bracket.
In all, these advantages of travelling scaffolding greatly widen its application in the everyday life. It can be predicted that screw-connected scaffolding will become less and less seen while travelling scaffolding wins greater application in the future.
