    Scaffolding services involve the setting up of a tall structure, the purpose of which is to provide support and safety to workers who work on buildings, for painting or repairing. Scaffolding structures are also required in construction sites, where a new building is being built from scratch. These are temporary solutions and made using a variety of materials, steel, wood and aluminium are the most commonly used materials. Scaffolding manufacturers often use aluminium in scaffolding due to the many advantages of the material. (Information credit: South End Scaffolding)   Benefits of Choosing Aluminium Over Other Materials:   1. Its Maintenance is Immensely Convenient: This is perhaps one of the most advantageous characteristics of aluminium, which drastically differentiates it from any other material used for the same purpose. The other two materials often used for scaffolding is steel and wood. Wood requires an extreme degree of maintenance. A little carelessness and the wood can split and disbalance the entire structure. Ordinary steel used in scaffolding if not maintained for a certain period can start to rust, which can weaken the stability of the structure. Aluminium, unlike wood and steel, does not rust, even if left exposed to the environment for a substantial amount of time.   2. Aluminium is Affordable: This is a factor that is immensely beneficial, for small events or functions organised by start-up companies. Not all organisations can spend a fortune on one event. Thus, maintaining the overall expenses is an activity that most companies practice. Therefore, aluminium is the ideal choice, as it is more reasonably priced than its competitors. Saving money on scaffolding will cause a drastic reduction in the final budget of the event.   3. It is Comparatively Lighter: When the manufacture or repair of a building is about to begin, the scaffolding structure is the first step that needs to be set up correctly, so that the workers can use them to reach heights and begin their work. The lighter the material is the easier and faster it will be to set up. Aluminium is extremely lightweight in comparison to steel and wood, which makes it easier to connect and install. Besides, when a product is lighter the cost of transportation is also reduced. Thus, light-weight nature of aluminium helps in many ways.   4. It is Durable and Stable: Finally, aluminium as a material is very durable and strong. The level of efficacy in aluminium is very high which makes it superior to its competition, as it undoubtedly is much more stable. One problem that workers might face while standing on a scaffolding structure is wobbling. This happens when a material chosen lacks stability. Such situations can prove to be risky and it might lead to injury. With aluminium scaffolding structures, no such issue arises.   The final conclusion is different materials have different advantages and disadvantages. It ultimately boils down to the requirement of the engineer or an organisation which dictates their choice of material used.

    Stainless steel plates are widely used in the manufacturing industries. Companies offering a wide range of stainless steel and aluminium products do a brisk business throughout the year, due to the immense demand of the product. Stainless steel plate suppliers in South Africa cater to different industries and manufacturing units located in Cape Town and other cities.   Today, different types of materials are available for users, especially for use in the manufacturing sector. Despite many other choices and the availability of different materials, the stainless steel plates have always enjoyed a great demand all over the world. (Information source: http://www.eurosteel.co.za/stainless-steel/plate/)   Why is stainless steel still so popular among the rest of materials which are available? The reason is simple – the demand for stainless steel plates is quite-high because of several benefits associated with the material.   Treatment of Stainless Steel: Stainless steel can be shaped quite easily. It is easy to mould and weld. Thus, stainless steel products can be easily distributed and manufactured. Through the process of cold rolling, stainless steel gets a strong structure. It can easily replace any other material, which can be quite heavy and cost-effective as well. Hot rolled steel is quite useful since it is easily pliable. This kind of steel can be stretched quite easily, and it can shape some unique projects. Stainless steel also goes through two processes during manufacturing which includes descaling and annealing. Annealing is the process when hot rolled steel is usually softened. In the process of descaling, there is a technique called ‘pickling’ which helps in giving the steel a matte finish. It also becomes a sealable product. Thus, from the above it is quite clear that stainless steel can be treated in a variety of ways. Thus, it can be used in creating several products, which are suitable for different purposes.   Great Strength: Why is stainless steel so popularly used in manufacturing stainless steel plates and other products, especially in case of heavy industries? Tensile strength can be measured with steel. It is about how much any material can be stretched before it breaks or before it falls. During the manufacture of steel, a variety of alloys are used, which play a major role in heat resistance factors, in measuring the tensile strength and in determining the resistance of steel to different corrosive material.   Recyclable Material: Stainless steel is a recyclable material, which has increased its popularity all over the world. This is also a reason why it is an affordable material. These days businesses and industries are quite environmentally conscious and do their best to preserve the environment. Stainless steel is one such product which can be recycled. This is not just good for the environment but is also a way of ensuring good business practices.   Stainless steel plate suppliers offer products suitable for use in different industries. Often the plates are customised as per the requirements of the clients.
