Scaffold tower iconScaffold Tower Hire range for NW & Manchester

Scaffolding tower hire gives you the ability to work up to heights 14.4m on a safe and secure platform with plenty of working space. Our scaffold towers also allow for heavy building materials and tools to be kept on the platform for efficient working.

Scaffold tower hire is often an economical alternative to traditional scaffolding when the work in one area can be completed quickly and then the tower can be moved to the next work area. As the scaffold towers are complete systems they can be safely erected and moved by operators with minimal specialist training (PASMA training available). This give a great degree of flexibility in working without having to rely on specialist scaffolding contractors. Scaffold tower components are relatively small and lightweight so they can be carried to areas that other access equipment can not reach.

Hire of a Scaffold Tower from the wide range available gives you access at the height you need with a platform size for efficient working without the investment and storage capacity of owning your own scaffold towers. Astley Hire will supply just what you need for the time that you need it. We carry out all the pre-delivery safety checks and only ever supply Alloy Tower hire in A1 safe condition, one less thing to worry about when you need to get a job done.
