The most important use of a facade scaffolding is a new construction scaffolding or a renovation scaffold.
For civilian construction a scaffolding will be used that is suitable for:
- building up the facade and / or masonry.
- the prevention of falling from a floor in construction.
- material storage in combination with carrying out activities. This is usually a scaffolding with load class 4 (300 kg/m3) or heavier.
Because there is no need to take existing buildings into account, there is usually enough room for the scaffolding for new buildings.
For civilian construction a scaffolding is used that offers sufficient space, delivers the desired load class and where the scaffolding can be adapted to the building process such as:
- Consider the design of the object.
- Temporarily support and shoring of e.g. of balconies.
- Adjusting the scaffolding width during the construction of masonry or the application of plastering.
For civilian construction, the Layher Allround scaffolding system is the most suitable.
For renovation a scaffolding will be used that is suitable for:
- Restoring the facade, brickwork joint and plastering.
- Maintaining window frames and painting.
- Light work with limited material storage, usually scaffolding load class 2 or 3 (150 or 200 kg/m2).
This work takes place at existing buildings. As a result, the space for setting up the scaffolding is often limited and material supply is less simple (existing paving, existing garden layout, accessibility of backyards, alleys etc.)
For renovation a scaffold is used that takes up little space, is easy to install and is easy to transport. Different Layher scaffolding systems can be used for this application.
- The SpeedyScaf renovation scaffolding. Also available in aluminium.
- The Allround scaffolding system constructed with a limited floor area (usually 0.73 or 1.09 m width). Also available in aluminum.
- Rolling towers.
