Modular Stages on the Rise

Posted: 1/14/2013

There are countless movies, television commercials and shows in which the characters are in sticky situations, and they find the best way to get out of a difficult situation is to climb aboard a modular stage that happens to be located outside the window of a building. Modular stages allow people to get out of difficult situations, but these stages aren't just for the benefit of Hollywood actors to make an impressive action sequence.

Construction companies are finding that they provide a great resource and solution to many in masonry and restoration needs. Modular stages are being utilized more over the traditional straight stages for efficiency and safety on the workplace. Traditional straight stages are ladders connected by planks, which provide a workspace. Modular stages are lending more advantages and safety features on the worksite.

Within recent years, scaffolding companies have a noticed an increase in modular use. There has been an increase within the last five years in instances of construction companies renting and purchasing modular staging for the purposes of masonry and restoration work. Construction companies doing masonry and restoration work are turning away from traditional straight stages for many reasons, and are realizing the advantages of modular staging. Not only do the modular stages allow for access at great heights, but also they provide numerous other functions.

One of the noteworthy advantages of modular staging is the ability to create custom stages to meet the specific needs of a job. Modular stages can be built to integrate and work with the different angles and corners of buildings, to allow easier and overall safer access to workers.

"Hi-Lo modular units lower project costs by their versatility/ease to be able to change different cofigurations to meet the access requirements a building creates on a project," says Scott Lupini, VP of Lupini Construction.

The ability of modular stages to meet the needs for an individual job proves to be extremely valuable. Adaptability of modular staging allows for closer access to work surfaces, as opposed to a straight that might not exactly fit the job. This could cause workers to reach farther or work at drastic angles that might further endanger their safety. These unsafe practices can put unnecessary stress on motors and/or outriggers.
