Adjustable Suspension Scaffold

What Does Adjustable Suspension Scaffold Mean?

A suspended scaffold is any platform that is supported by ropes suspended from an overhead structure. These are also known as two-point scaffolds. There is a thin line of difference between the two-point scaffolds and suspended supported scaffold like a supported scaffold suspended over the side of the bridge.

Safeopedia Explains Adjustable Suspension Scaffold

Adjustable suspended scaffolds are typically used by window washers, but they also have a prominent role to play during high-rise constructions. An engineer has to be consulted before planning to use these scaffolds because it demands careful calculations as to where the supports should be anchored. The main responsibility of the engineer is to ensure that the suspensions are anchored to a strong structure.
