While there are a lot of jobs that can be completed with a ladder, there are some scenarios when a ladder simply won't do. How do you know if you should use staging boards and handrails? Ask yourself the following questions:
- Can a ladder provide me with the right amount of space to work?
- Can I complete the job in a few hours or less?
If you answer no to both of these questions, then it might be worth looking into our staging boards and handrails. These products are designed to provide you with space and stability while you work at height. They're non-slip and allow you to work continuously without going up and down a ladder multiple times throughout the day! Ideal if you're painting a house, renovating or working on site.
How to use staging boards
First of all, you need to choose staging boards that are the right length and width for the task at hand. Here at Ladders UK Direct, we supply staging boards in a range of widths and lengths, so you should have absolutely no problem finding one that suits you.
Using staging boards to work at height couldn't be simpler. All you need is a set of trestles that are the appropriate height for the job at hand. Once they're in place, lay your staging boards across the gap and ensure they're secure before starting to work. Staging boards can also be used to bridge an existing gap as long as they're supported properly. If you'd like extra security, we'd recommend using a staging board with built-in handrail(s). These can make it easier to tackle precarious tasks and should help to prevent accidental slips and falls.
