When cleaning windows and exterior building surfaces, you need a platform that will get your crew quickly and safely to the right elevation. Suspended scaffolding is ideal for lightweight applications where variable heights are needed, including window washing.
At Scaffolding Solutions, we’ll provide you with the perfect suspended scaffolding system for your needs.
Safe Window Washing at Height
When your crews are working at height, safety is of utmost concern. That’s why we focus on providing only the highest quality products and most secure designs available with our scaffolding systems.
When choosing the right scaffolding for your window washing needs, keep the following priorities in mind.
Length of platforms needed
If you need wider platforms to handle each floor efficiently, you’ll need to make sure the platforms you order are configured to handle the length required. For instance, the Altrex platforms we offer are rated for different lengths depending on the types of stirrups used and the model chosen.
All components used in your scaffolding system must be rated for the weights you’ll be transporting. While it’s true that window washing typically doesn’t involve massive loads like construction or heavy industrial applications, you still need to ensure your hoists, anchors, and platforms can withstand the weight of your personnel and equipment.
Additional safety features, such as railings, emergency stopping mechanisms, and fall arrest systems, are all necessary when working at height. The best modern swing stage scaffolding components come equipped with superior safety features that allow your crew to feel as secure as possible when working on building exteriors.
