Scaffold towers are a common piece of equipment used at construction sites, which allows workers to work at a height easily and safely. You may have seen these for yourself, but did you know there are different types of scaffold towers and scaffold alternatives, each being for specific purposes or scenarios? We outline some of the most popular scaffold types in their latest blog post.
This type of scaffold tower is self-explanatory - it’s for use on staircases, indoor and outdoor. Its easy-to-assemble frame creates a hassle-free and safe environment to access hard-to-reach areas around stairs. With simplicity in mind, this is an easy scaffold tower to use to keep the job from becoming arduous.
Cantilever Scaffold Tower
Cantilever Towers are used in cases where there is an obstacle that doesn’t allow a full tower to be erected and prevents you from reaching the area you need. This tower includes an additional platform, which can be installed over the obstacle and provides an easy and safe way for you to complete the task at hand.
Advanced Guardrail Scaffold (AGR) Tower
For additional fall protection, you can use the AGR tower. This tower allows construction workers to assemble the frame from the level below the one they’re assembling, which reduces the danger of falling. At each level, there is also an extra guardrail for the extra safety of your workers.
One Man Tower
Specifically designed for lone workers, this tower can be easily assembled and disassembled by one person. The base can be turned into a trolley for easy transportation and storage, and can be fitted through doorways and into a small van.

This is a different type of scaffold tower as it’s made with fibreglass instead of aluminium, which is non-conductive. These are ideal for working in areas where there are risks from high voltages, such as rail and electrical industries. This type of scaffold tower is also useful in areas where cleanliness is very important, such as cleanrooms or conservation areas, as fibreglass is a clean product and resistant to bacteria.
