Why Aluminium Scaffolding
We manufacture and supply the best quality scaffold available in Australia. As part of the manufacturing process, we utilise T-6061 alloy. This provides strength and rigidity to structures, keeping our scaffolding resistant to wear over time under any weather conditions. Given that our sole specialty is aluminium scaffolding, we are the foremost experts with an unmatched level of expertise in this field.
We take workers’ safety very seriously and not only meet but exceed Australian and New Zealand safety standards. We use an efficient system of cross-checking and quality assurance to ascertain the same high standards are applied to every job, however large or small. At Mr Scaffold, our staff is always driven towards continual improvement.
We hire or sell to anyone from home handymen to project managers heading up major commercial builds. We have been entrusted with providing access solutions for iconic buildings, including the Queen Victoria Building and Sydney Town Hall during their heritage restorations.
In most cases, our Estimator will come to your site to view and discuss your exact requirements. Show us where you would like the scaffold erected and any known hazards. We also get a first-hand look at the environment including parking and surrounding structures. Our Estimator will provide a detailed, itemised quote for your build. Hiring costs can be broken down as follows: delivery, weekly hire, pick-up and extras. Once approved, our team arrives at your site to erect the scaffold tower.
Upon completion of the erection phase, a certified professional will provide a scaffold ticket for the tower.
