All forms of independent scaffold erected including to local authority standards & terms & conditions. An independent scaffold consists of a double row of standards, with each row parallel to the building. The inner row is set as close to the building as is practicable. The distance between the lines of standards should be the minimum necessary to accommodate the required number of boards and toe boards.

The birdcage scaffold, also known as the independent, is one of the simpler and more common forms of scaffolding you will find on a typical UK building site. Consisting of two rows or more of standards or vertical poles, the birdcage scaffold is usually connected by using horizontal pieces as well as ledgers and transoms. Birdcage scaffolds are intended for use on single story levels only, and often used by trade’s people when working on a ceiling. As the name might suggest birdcage scaffolds are almost always fully enclosed so that trades people working on them are protected from falls thanks to the scaffold’s cage like structure. Birdcage scaffolds can reach heights of more than sixty feet.
