Scaffolding provides a temporary platform easier to work on than ladders and allows more freedom of movement. Most modern styles use tough steel or aluminium frames.
Birdcage scaffolds are easy to set up and scale well. However, they need braces to maintain stability in windy conditions. Other outdoor types include single pole, cantilever and suspended platforms. Many indoor models have wheels for easy movement. The right scaffolding for your needs lets you work comfortably in difficult places.
