Since 1998 we have predominantly used system scaffold. Clients are sometimes unfamiliar with the flexibility of system scaffold and having used traditional scaffolding for many years are reluctant to change. However, when they do make the change, they are pleasantly surprised. Their perceptions on systems were based on experiences with scaffolding contractors who used a hybrid of traditional scaffold and system scaffold for the same scaffold with the resulting problems that brings - gaps, lapped boards, etc.
When we use a system scaffold we provide the full system which, when designed and planned well, is by far the better option.
