Lead picture[edit]

The lead picture is great BUT I can't actually see the scaffolding unless the picture in much, much bigger. The fancy way to deal with this would be an little inset that shows a small portion of the picture, magnified many times. Any photoshop skills out there? ike9898 14:17, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

scaffolding material[edit]

Steel scaffolding, Q235/Q345

Two-Types of Scaffolds[edit]

There are two types of scaffolding. Suspended and supported. Supported scaffolds are built and designed above their supporting structure (think pipe frame scaffold). Suspended scaffolds are built and designed below their supporting structure (think window washing scaffold). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:18, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

There is not much detail on types of scaffold. There should be more detail included as far as frame scaffold, tube and clamp (including types of clamps used), and multipurpose utility (used to hang drywall type) scaffolding. Fsabelhaus (talk) 15:02, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

   I don't think that the latter is really considered scaffolding (talk)  —Preceding comment was added at 02:41, 19 March 2008 (UTC) 

swivel beam clamps[edit]

why is it so hard to find out about the swivel beam clamp. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:46, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Answer: You can contact Qingdao scaffolding: the biggest scaffolding coupler/clamps manufacturer and supplier in China, can supply swivel beam clamp. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:17, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Sphinx in 1925.jpg[edit]

The image File:Sphinx in 1925.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

hanging scaffolding[edit]

trying to find any information about hanging scaffolds. not suspended scaffolding or swing stages, but hanging scaffolding that gets its support from beams. basically building from the top down using beam clamps. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:46, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Ancient Africans[edit]

"The ancient Africans have also used wooden scaffoldings to support mosques." --LOL...Mosques were not around during the "ancient" period. Islam let alone African adherents to Islam did not become widespread to well after 600AD. This is not "ancient." (talk) 03:23, 3 January 2011 (UTC)


As far as I'm aware, they are never known as poles in the trade, but tubes. I intend to replace the use of the word 'pole' with 'tube' where appropriate. Markb (talk) 11:25, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Bamboo scaffolding be merged into [Scaffolding]]. In the Scaffolding article, there is a Specialty scaffolding section, listing numerous types of scaffolding, none of which has it's own article, except for Bamboo. I see no reason why Bamboo scaffolding needs its own article, unless there is going to be an individual article written for each type of scaffolding. SarrCat ∑;3 01:25, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Of course bamboo scaffolding should be merged into this main article on scaffolding. In Southeast Asia the question would lead to the response "What? You mean there are other types of scaffolding?" — Preceding unsigned comment added by R.d.noonan (talkcontribs) 04:02, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Agreed and  Done
