A Barnstaple-based scaffolder and nationally recognised housing developer have kept up with high demand for housing and a need for speed respectively thanks to Sayfa Systems’ RhinoDeck load deck platform and trestle system.
Advanced Scaffolding (SW) had previously used RhinoDeck and already appreciated its benefits of ease-of-use and speed of installation. So, when a surge in general demand coincided with a contract from Linden Homes (Galliford Try), Advanced Scaffolding decided that investing in its own fleet of the Sayfa Systems’ load decks was vital.
Matt Bacon, Advanced Scaffolding’s founder, said: “While it normally takes a minimum of four hours to fit out the average ground floor of a new-build semi with tube and fittings, it takes just over an hour to fit out the same area with RhinoDeck.
“This means we can now fit out between seven and eight plots in a day as opposed to being limited to a maximum of two plots using conventional methods.
“This is not only a massive benefit for us, wanting to make the most of labour, but also provides knock-on benefits for Linden Homes, including added flexibility, productivity and safety on-site.”
