Offshore and Shipbuilding Cuplock Scaffolding and Solutions!

Scaffolding any type of access is far easier said than done. Scaffolding access to a project offshore or within shipbuilding environments requires even more durability and reliability.

Many working within the offshore, oil and gas and shipbuilding sectors choose Cuplock scaffolding as their system of choice. Due to its highly robust build quality, low-maintenance, anti-rust fully galvanised finish and extreme adaptability.

Scaffolding in any type of environment has to be reliable and robust, when scaffolding is required in harsh offshore environments – safety ofshipbuilding-scaffolding-specialists---st-helens-plant supply and longevity of supply is a must.

For decades companies and contractors within the offshore, oil and gas and shipbuilding industries have utilised Cuplock over other types of system scaffolding such as Kwikstage or Ringlock.

All three types of scaffolding system, basically do the same job. Provide access to work at height, alongside being prefabricated. However, that is where the similarities end.

Cuplock above all types of modular scaffolding, is by far the most robust with its anti-rust attributes being fully galvanised. Alongside the ability to connect up to four components at any one time, with a quick and easy “cup-like” locking mechanism.

Kwikstage is generally sold and hired as a fully painted system, not designed with the same level of flexibility Cuplock is. Another con in comparison to Cuplock is the painted finish – resulting in a system that does require more maintenance than Cuplock does due to rust eventually being a factor.
