Scaffold Testing 

Our highly advanced scaffold testing and verification facility is at the core of every scaffolding solution, scaffold fitting and component manufactured, supplied, repaired or reconditioned by St Helens Plant.

From a single fitting or component to a container load of scaffolding our scaffold testing division is comprised of some of the UK’s most proficient and stringent scaffold testers and verifiers. Utilising a combination of cutting edge technology, alongside some long established, traditional, old-school techniques. We ensure each and every fitting, system or component not only meets, but exceeds UK and EU safety standards and regulations.


No fitting, system or solution is passed for dispatch until it meets with industry standards, alongside our own stringent quality assurance processes.

Safety, reliability and quality of repairs, refurbishments, updated modifications and testing of prototype scaffolding and access systems – large or small, comes as standard. The St Helens Plant quality guarantee and industry recognised approval is a highly sought after sign of premium production of the very best of British manufacturing and engineering.

Scaffold Testing and verification is the most vital aspect to scaffold manufacturing. As a leading scaffolding manufacturer, scaffolding supplier and scaffold repair and reconditioning facility, scaffold safety is at the core of all our services. Our scaffold testing division consists of some of the most experienced and proficient scaffold testers and verifiers within the industry.

We have the skills, experience and knowledge that’s needed to repair, recondition, refurbish and fabricate all types of modern day system scaffolding, traditional tube and fitting scaffolding and access systems. We are extremely familiar with common vulnerabilities and areas most likely to suffer defects, through general wear and tear and potential misuse.

Using a combination of traditional testing methods alongside newly evolved modern day technologies, we implement some of the most stringent scaffold testing procedures used within the industry. Working in line with British safety standards, which are some of the highest regarded safety standards, worldwide. Alongside guidelines set out by the HSE, BBA, HAPAS and ISO.

We ensure each fitting, component and scaffolding system not only meets, but exceeds the highest legislation and is in accordance to British, EU and International regulations, before being passed for distribution and dispatch.
