Scaffold towers, also commonly referred to as access towers or tower scaffolds, are a useful alternative to ladders. That is especially true when there is work to be done at height. Our scaffold towers are ideal for all your non-powered access requirements. Particularly applicable are maintenance, decorating or general building works;

  • All scaffold towers include large work platforms to accommodate a worker, their tools and materials.
  • Scaffold Towers offer a much safer work environment than precariously attempting to balancing on a ladder.
  • As a self-standing structure, our scaffold towers are self-supporting and secure. This eliminates any risk of slipping.
