For commercial and industrial applications at height, scaffold towers are generally preferred. The lathes are quite stable and can generally take a lot more weight of workers, tools and materials. If the tower is to be used outdoors and if it is made of steel, rust and corrosion can become a problem. One solution is to galvanize the steel. Galvanizing is a chemical process in which the steel is coated with layers of zinc, which does not rust or corrode. The steel components of the Saturn Scaffold Tower are submerged in molten zinc and a chemical reaction binds the zinc to the steel. It is not a coating – zinc is permanently and chemically part of the steel through a reaction between the iron molecules in the steel and the zinc. So although the top layer is all zinc, the bottom layers are made of a mixture of zinc and iron that protect the steel below. Galvanized steel is very resistant to rust and corrosion, which makes it perfect for exterior applications. Here is some information on a galvanized steel scaffolding tower with the improbable name “Saturn”.
Scaffolding towers: About Saturn Galvanized Steel Tower
This is a tower of exceptional quality in pre-galvanized steel which has an unconditional 5-year warranty. The steel tubing is quite sturdy, with a generous 38mm (1-1 / 2 “) diameter, as well as a 16 gauge wall thickness. This translates to a wall thickness of 1.59mm. Saturn scaffold towers have a good range of optional accessories, such as casters, stabilizers, internal ladders, and hatch platforms, so that users can design custom solutions for their particular working applications. The most popular frame size is 4 ‘x 4’, but other sizes are available.
Scaffolding towers: Features of Saturn Galvanized Steel Tower
The Saturn Tower is particularly easy to transport and store as it breaks down into a compact package, including the platform planks. The tower comes as a kit with everything you will need, including the frame, diagonal braces, handrails and baseplates. Optional accessories include casters to make the tower easier to move and stabilizers (stabilizers) to secure the tower at platform heights greater than 12ft6. The adjustable base allows the tower to be erected safely on sloping or uneven ground. You can purchase the platform planks with the Saturn tower, or make them yourself according to the dimensions provided.
Scaffolding towers: Some specifications of the Saturn tower
The platform height is 6 feet and the approximate working height is approximately 12 feet. The tower weighs 44kg and sells for around £ 156.00. The safe working load of the tower is 250 kg, provided it is evenly distributed and a suitable platform material is used. Safety guardrails are a special feature of Saturn towers. The guardrails are 3 feet high and are double level. This means that even if users kneel or sit on the platform, they will still be protected by the guardrails.
Saturn scaffolding towers are carefully designed and manufactured to provide safe working at height solutions.
