Scaffolding Firms Near Me
If you are looking for scaffolding firms near Northampton, we can help. Scaffolding can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including assisting in painting murals and stage event lighting. However, the most common application remains to be construction scaffolding.
Evidence of using scaffolding in aid of building tall structures can be found all over the globe, dating back to as early as 5th Century BC. As time and technology advances, the material and techniques used to erect scaffolding has been massively refined. Wooden and bamboo tubing has been replaced with aluminium and steel, favoured for their durability.

At Moulton Scaffolding Services we take Health and Safety seriously. While a scaffold is one of the safest access solutions, there are still a lot to be considered due to the nature of working at height. This applies to most scaffolding as the height is generally over 2 metres.

Types of Scaffolding
The age-old advice in the construction industry- "choosing the right tools for the job" is applicable to scaffolding. Despite the modular appearance, there are many types of scaffolding available and each have their advantages in certain situations. Here are a few of the most commonly used types in UK and some areas of Europe.
Tube & Clamp: This is the most common type of scaffolding you will find. As the name suggests, there are two main components to this method of scaffolding. They are one of the most versatile solutions as they are highly adaptable- even to building with ireegular shapes. The clamps, or clips, are sometimes referred to as "couplers".
Single: This is a very basic scaffolding system, often used by bricklayers as the wall gains in height. The scaffold is erected parallel to the wall, typically at a distance of around 1.2m. There are typically only three components involved and the name derives from the fact that there are only a single side of vertical standards.
Kwikstage: For larger projects in the UK, you may find that Kwikstage (sometimes referred to as Quickstage) scaffolding is preferred for their rapid assembly and disassembly. The patented design and modular and can be adapted with ease to adjust to projects of any size, whilst providing a reliable solution.
Trestle: Similar to Kwikstage scaffolding, the components in a trestle system are often pre-fabricated into strong load-bearing shapes for ease of assembly. They are suitable for commercial projects which requires height without a hefty supporting system. They are sometimes preferred for their mobility.
Commercial Scaffolding Hire
Our range of versatile scaffolding projects are suitable for a range of applications in and around Northamptonshire, including residential, commercial and industrial hire. They not only aid in the construction, but also maintenance, repair and cleaning of these properties.
For residential projects, there are often the temptation to work from a ladder instead. While it's a cheaper and more temporary solution, there are more risks involved. By choosing to hire a scaffolding system from professional such as Moulton Scaffolding Services, you are guaranteed a safe and legal access solution for your project. Commercial scaffolding hire are required for projects which are at least 6 ft above a lower level. Fall protection is required for falls higher than 10ft, often in the form of guard rails.
Industrial Scaffolding Northampton
Over the years we have worked with business of all sizes and nature in Northamptonshire, including industrial sites such as factories and plants. We are experienced in providing a timely and secure scaffolding solution for industrial buildings of all sizes.
The application of scaffolding on industrial properties varies from construction, repairs to general inspections. The sheer size of the buildings often present their unique set of challenges, including access and minimising disturbance to the plant. In any case, a reliable scaffolding system often forms one of the most basic requirements to the a successful project. We can work with buildings more than 300ft in height- our team are also trained to handle hazardous material such as asbestos.
