Standard scaffolding has to be dismantled and then reassembled rather than being moved around. It's all very labour intensive but highly rigid and provides a highly safe working environment when done properly. The lightweight scaffolding slots together with no need for tools; comes with its own wheels; and can be moved around; four out-riggers, one on each corner, can then be put in contact with the ground for extra stability, when it comes time to climb up. "It's a wee bit shoogely, David.", exclaimed my roofer as he ascended and constructed the scaffold this afternoon, a little wary of the new technology. "English scaffolds can't be shoogely." came my retort. :-)
Anyhow, we had got the scaffolding for interior work i.e. re-building floors and tall ceilings from the level below and having tried it for some exterior window work this afternoon even my builder now thinks it's just the biz.
