The benefits when you buy Cuplock scaffolding



Once you have taken the decision to buy scaffolding for either your business or a personal project, you are faced with the next choice…..which scaffold system to opt for.

As you will know, there are a wide variety of types of scaffolding and many component scaffold systems available today. A small selection of the types of scaffolding available to you include tube and clip, kwikstage, haki, layher, ringlock and cuplock. All these systems have their own unique features and can be very effective dependant on what you are going to be using your scaffold, your level of experience working with scaffolding and also your budget.

With this in mind, during this blog post we will be looking in more depth at the Cuplock modular scaffolding system.  Cuplock scaffold is probably the most popular component scaffolding system in the world; in fact here at MJR Group Solutions our scaffold erection and contracting division use this system for many contracts.

As a component scaffold system, Cuplock scaffolding is highly versatile and can be used in a wide variety of projects and applications of all sizes.  It can be used on a small scaffolding in Glasgow for an extension, right through to a major commercial scaffolding contracting project.   With a range of different sizes and load capacities it can support frame, column material lifting frame, climbing scaffolding, hanging frame scaffold and many other arrangements as is required by a project.

In business today efficiency is key to hitting deadlines and keeping within budget, here is where Cuplock excels.  With Cuplock scaffolding the scaffolding erection and dismantling times are around three to five times faster than conventional tube scaffolding. There are no requirements for many tools, and the whole system can be erected and dismantled with a hammer.

A major concern for many people when choosing scaffold is the versatility of a component system. They often worry it will not be suitable for certain types of work.  This need not be a worry when you buy Cuplock scaffolding.  With extreme versatility the system will be adaptable to almost any type of project, big, small, straight forward or technical.

As Cuplock is steel scaffold, the load bearing capability is great.  This means that it is suitable for all projects, both those are for access only or those where there may be a need for the scaffolding to hold a quantity of heavy material while operators are at work.

Scaffolding is unfortunately never cheap. It is important that you realise this. Cheap scaffold is not safe. Always buy from a reputable source, your safety is more valuable than saving a few pounds on buying potentially dangerous and untested scaffolding.  That being said, Cuplock has the benefits that it has fewer components, so less chance of losing pieces, which can often happen with other systems.

Now we are not saying Cuplock is the best choice for everyone, but it does fit the needs for a wide range of our clients. As with any major purchase, you will want to talk to professionals for advice.
