Scaffold Hoarding

Australian Scaffolds recently installed a facade scaffold with Type A hoarding attached in Newcastle NSW for our valued client Infrastruction (NSW) Pty Ltd. The scaffold hoarding was attached to a facade scaffold and used to create a protected work zone.

The facade scaffold was 20m long x 10m high and included 2m high stairs, beige shade cloth to exterior and 2m high scaffold hoarding. The project was completed in 1 day. Using the scaffold wall cassettes which attach to the scaffold decreases installation time by up to 80%. The scaffold hoarding system utilises lockable steel doors that simplifies site security.

Types of Hoarding – Definitions

Type A: Type A hoardings generally consist of a 2m high ply-sheet fence attached to a supporting timber or steel frame.

Type B: Type B hoardings are a more substantial structure that spans a footpath or roadway and affords overhead protection to the public.

Type C: Type C hoardings with overhead sheds or storage.

If scaffold is placed on public land, a council permit will be required.
