Our Expatriate Inspectors, Experienced Supervisors, and Advanced Scaffolders are able to perform any scaffolding works flexibly and safely even within a narrow deadline.

What is the BS1139 scaffolding standard?


To form a scaffolding BS1139 standard system in accordance with regulations to ensure work quality safety requires many high requirements. BS1139 scaffolding is a scaffolding system consisting of galvanized or galvanized steel pipes tightly linked together by a system of accessories such as rotating shackles, couplers, clamps, putlog, boards, ladders, etc.

Why do we need to apply scaffolding BS1139 standard?

We can see a scaffolding BS1139 standard popularly mentioned in Construction and Engineering.

The use of scaffolding BS1139 standard is one of the essential scaffolding requirements that units need to comply with. Because compliance with the standards calculated and issued by the Ministry of Construction will help ensure the safety of the project during the construction process.

In addition, construction scaffolding is one of the important materials that determine the success or failure of construction works. Therefore, construction scaffolding needs certain evaluation and production criteria to ensure construction safety as well as the effectiveness of works.
