Volcano Ride

We were approached to design an access scaffold so the existing funfair ride could be re-painted. The main problem with this design was of course the height, approx. 56m and also the location wasn’t ideal, slap bang on the coast. To prevent the scaffold from twisting under its own weight and due to wind pressure, we designed the face brace and also provided plan brace at every other lift with box ties round the 4 steel supports at each lift. Erecting the scaffold took longer than expected due to the wind speeds at the time of year but eventually it was completed.
