Suspended Scaffolds (commonly known as Swing Stages) are a unique work platform utilized to perform work at great heights along the exterior of buildings.
Hung by ropes or cables connected to stirrups at each end of the platform and secured via an intricate fall protection system, two-point suspended scaffolds are the most commonly used suspended scaffold and play a crucial role in high-rise construction.
Here our client, Browning Chapman, is performing façade repairs and sealant replacement on the Indiana Government Center North Building via use of a two-point suspension suspended scaffold (swing stage).
For more information on two point suspended scaffolds, visit the OSHA Scaffold eTool.
