Sustainability in scaffolding made easy: build pallets from your stock material
With clever scaffolding solutions, you can make your work in scaffolding construction a lot more sustainable and thus also more cost-efficient. Because if you have to replace fewer scaffolding parts or have unused parts in storage, you also save money. With our new range of modules, this is very easy. Read here how it works.
Recent market developments in transport prices
In terms of price development, there is a lot going on right now at almost all levels in the scaffolding and construction industry. Among others, prices for steel and aluminium have risen significantly in recent times. This is also due to rising transport costs. In this week's blog post, we want to give you an overview of the current developments in logistics and transport.
Recent market developments of steel and aluminium
Hardly anyone in the scaffolding or construction industry will have failed to notice in the last few weeks that there is currently a lot going on in terms of raw material prices. Russia's invasion of Ukraine at the end of February has led to renewed significant price increases for steel, aluminium and freight rates. Read more about the current situation here.
Sustainability in scaffolding: how to reuse your standard transoms
It is hard to imagine any industry without the idea of sustainability. Scaffolding systems must not only comply with the highest safety standards such as TRBS 2121, but also be cost-efficient and durable. That's why our team is constantly looking for new solutions to make your work with and on scaffolding as sustainable as possible. Did you know, for example, that you can use your RINGSCAFF modular transoms for more than one purpose? Read more about how you can make your next scaffolding project particularly sustainable here.
Infos about BAUMA 2022
This year it is finally time again: BAUMA opens its doors in Munich from 24th to 30th October 2022. With 3,700 exhibitors on an exhibition area of over 600,000 m2, it is not only the largest trade fair in the construction industry, but also the largest trade fair in the world. And it is still growing. Everything you need to know about your visit to BAUMA and valuable tips for your stay in Munich can be found here.
Height rescue: what to do after a fall from the scaffold
When working on scaffolding, safety is of top priority. But despite all safety precautions, you should always be aware of the danger of a possible fall from the scaffold. Even if a fall is arrested by PPE, the accident victim must first be rescued from it before the danger is completely averted. That's why it's important that you and your team are prepared for an emergency. Read here what you need to know about fast and safe height rescue.
What do you need to know about PPE inspections?
Although the use of PPE can help to reduce the number of accidents with serious or even fatal outcomes, it can also involve risks that you should be aware of. In particular, the wear and tear of individual parts can quickly become a safety risk. The good news is that you can prevent this. We explain how to do that here.
Staying safe when working at height: means of accident prevention
Scaffolding systems today are safer than ever. Technical protective equipment such as TRBS 2121-compliant advanced guardrails or personal protective equipment against falls from a height (PPE) help to significantly reduce the risk of serious accidents in scaffolding. But, as always, good preparation is and remains indispensable. Here you can read about the measures you can take to avoid serious accidents in scaffolding and to prepare yourself for an emergency.
What to keep in mind before using PPE
PPE, short for personal protective equipment against falls from a height, is always a must when technical and organisational measures cannot be implemented sufficiently. When used correctly, PPE, for example in the form of a safety harness, ensures that you are slowed down or caught in the event of a fall. Read here what you should know before using PPE.
