Erecting Scaffolding Properly
Opt for casters. If you plan on moving your scaffolding to work on various spots, include casters in your scaffolding setup. Remember to lock the casters when you get it into place.
Assemble the scaffolding frame. Lay out the ends of the scaffolding. Lift one end piece, and attach the upper cross brace. The far end of this brace should support the end piece while you lift the second end piece and attach its upper cross brace. Secure the ends of the cross braces to the bottom of the opposite end frame.
Make sure the scaffold is stable. Move the scaffold into your desired position, and make sure it is level and secure.
Place the planks. Lift the planks through the scaffold bars and into place. Hardware should be included to fasten the planks into place.
