Just quoting for a few 4m x 4 lift scaffold towers,

now under the new guidlines does this mean it is not classed as a basic independant? as there will be 4 working lifts. I know you are only allowed 2 lifts working at any time but each lift will used as access any help appreciated, thanks

To my knowledge this can still be classed as a ladder access tower as long as it has a max load of 0.75KN per metre square load.

I would price these around £110 per lift = £440 per tower.

I hope this helps.

Scaffy I wouldn't do it for any less £440 for all the safety factors you have to have in place these days.
I wouldn't like to erect any scaffold today or anyday using them stupid steps and harnesses...only my opinion.

Yer had that sort of figure in mind a few have a bit of a walk on them and a few have some bin sheds under them. With people coming and going all the time things could go pear shaped if some pissed up d*** head trys to climb them.
