Scaffolding could be a provisional structure used to support people & material within the construction or repair of buildings or different structures, also known as staging or scaffold. It is widely used on site to get access to heights & areas which might be otherwise exhausting to get to. It is also used in adapted systems for formwork & shoring, concert stages, grandstand seating, access/viewing towers, ski ramps, half pipes, exhibition stands, and art projects. It is classified as tube & coupler (fitting) parts, H-frame / facade standard system scaffolds, prefabricated modular system scaffold components, timber scaffolds and bamboo scaffolds. Each type is made from numerous components such as ledger, scaffold tie, base jack, brace diagonal, transom, brackets and coupler.
