Aluminium Scaffold Tower Hire
We have scaffold tower hire available nationwide. These alloy towers provide a much safer and secure means of working at a height – at home and on site. Simple to assemble, these self-build access towers are ideal for working safely and comfortably on overhead installations, decorating jobs, repairs, construction projects and more.
Our aluminium scaffold towers are industry standard pieces of equipment that use the 3T method (Through The Trapdoor) for safe and secure access. This means that the platform is accessed through a trapdoor by climbing the built-in ladder system, from inside the frame of the tower. Rather than climbing all the way up the outside of the tower, which could result in a fall from a great height, these towers are accessed internally, in stages. Whilst assembling the tower, you can install platforms at different heights. When you climb up the built-in ladder, you can access the lower level platform through a trapdoor in the platform. Then from that platform you can climb up further, to a higher platform. This ensures that you are fully supported by the structure of the tower as you climb up to the top.
These scaffold towers are available in ‘double width (1.45m)’ and ‘single width (0.93m)’, and with a choice of either a 2.5m or 1.8m long platform. This gives you the option of having a tower with plenty of space for workers and equipment, or a tower that is compact enough to use in tighter spaces.
Our scaffold towers have colour coded bracing to assist quick and easy assembly, and the platforms are fitted with a wind lock to ensure extra stability and durability. Safety toe boards, stabilisers and adjustable locking castors are also provided, ensuring a convenient and practical solution to your access problems, without compromising safety and security.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between 'Standard' and 'Narrow' width towers?
Our ‘standard width’ scaffold towers are 1.45m wide. This gives you plenty of space for workers and tools. Our ‘narrow width’ towers are 0.93m – they are designed for use in areas with restricted amounts of space.
What is the choice of deck size?
You can select a 1.8m deck or a 2.5m deck.
Do the towers have an integrated ladder system?
Yes. All of our towers have an integrated ladder system which allows access to the platform.
What is 'Working Height'?
‘Working height’ is a term which refers to the height that the tower gives you safe access to work at. Our towers are measured up to their top handrail, so the working height is 1 metre above that – as you can reach up and safely work on something overhead at a height of 1m above the handrail.
Do I need to hire anything else?
No. Although if you are transporting tools, equipment and supplies up the scaffold tower, we recommend that you hire a pulley or hoist system, rather than trying to carry the tools up the tower as you ascend. You can use a tool belt to carry small hand tools up the tower.
Can I hire for less than a week?
Yes. You can hire for a single day or longer - although the weekly hire rate would still apply as a minimum charge.
Can I collect from store?
Yes you can. Although you would need suitable transport, as our scaffold tower kits would not fit into a car. Our Hire Team would be able to recommend if your transport would be suitable for transporting a tower.
Can you deliver to my home or work site?
Yes we can. We can deliver to most areas in the UK mainland – to your home or work site.
