About Supported Scaffolding

Supported scaffolds consist of one or more platforms supported by outrigger beams, brackets, poles, legs, uprights, posts, frames, or similar rigid support. Because frame scaffolds are the most common type of supported scaffold, we use the Frame module to describe requirements that are common to all supported scaffolds.

Brown United scaffolds can be customized to conform to all of your needs. Our scaffolding is versatile and can support ramps and extreme skateboarding to sound equipment for concerts as well as shoring and access for construction.
