Environment Controlled Encapsulation

The Houtman Scaffolding organisation can provide a highly effective encapsulation service that can be quickly installed at any verified safe location within the parameters of any given contract, the encapsulation service can cover an impressive array of sizes and maybe not so straightforward boundaries . With ‘Tuffcoat’ tools and trained employees our teams can envelope a building or bridge structure and offer a temperature controlled encapsulated environment to work in. This type of controlled environment is a most efficient way of offering both a thermal and weather controlled work place within the scaffold. It has proven popular in the area of ‘blasting’ and ‘spraypainting’ to ensure the safety of both tradesmen and public alike.

Access Scaffolding

By far Access Scaffolds would be the most commonly used, but not necessarily the most straight forward scaffolds. The majority of scaffolds are to allow contractors, trades etc carry out some form of construction/maintenance on buildings, bridges and any man made structures. The Access scaffold is a temporary structure used to support work men and materials so they may carry out their contractual commitments.
