Product Watch: WORKHORSE Scaffolding
This year at the World of Masonry, Non-Stop Scaffolding introduced a new product, WORKHORSE scaffolding. For the first time, mason contractors can own 105 feet of jack-up scaffolding for less than $10,000.
WORKHORSE is a lightweight, jack-up scaffold system specifically designed for inside and outside walls under 20 feet high, and delivers about 30 percent more production than frames. Field-testers report that the scaffolding can pay for itself in as little as five weeks.
The masons start building the wall off the scaffold and never move until the wall is topped out. WORKHORSE can be moved around by hand, on casters, or with a forklift. The material stocking area will hold 3,800 pounds, and the towers weigh only 123 pounds.
WORKHORSE has been in development for about three years. Non-Stop Heavy-Duty users asked for a system that could be used on short walls, inside and out, that would give them the same high profit margins they enjoy using their Heavy-Duty outside.
