Why Choose Fibreglass Scaffolding?

Choose a fibreglass scaffold tower when you need to be double-sure that your workers are protected from electrical shocks, or when they're working in an environment containing corrosive materials, such as petrochemical plants.


This is the biggest advantage of fibreglass scaffolding, allowing it to be safely used where it might come into contact with live electrical wiring.


GRP (glass reinforced plastic) also protects against corrosive materials that can weaken the structural support of steel scaffolding. This makes it the safest choice in such environments.

Heat resistant

Fibreglass resists heat too, allowing your workers to safely operate close to heat sources that would make other scaffolding materials too dangerous to touch, or might present a fire hazard.


A big benefit of fibreglass wherever its used is its lightweight. This makes it quicker to work with and easier to modify for scaffolding requirements – without compromising on strength and safety.

When to use fibreglass scaffolding

The main reason for using fibreglass scaffolding is when working in areas where regular towers present risks.

  • Working around areas of electricity

    Non-conductivity is the greatest advantage of fibreglass scaffolding. It's designed for safe use when regular towers would present a risk of electrical shocks.
  • Presence of corrosive materials

    Being non-corrosive, fibreglass scaffolding is also used in areas exposed to materials that would otherwise degrade the structural integrity of a steel scaffold.

Yes, our scaffold towers all have integrated ladders to provide safe access to the working platforms.

Can I Pick Up the GRP Tower Directly from Alta Scaffolding?

These towers are self-contained, so there’s no need to hire anything special. As with any other scaffolding, however, it’s always useful to also get a hoist or pulley system.

What Are the Fibreglass Scaffold Tower Deck Sizes?

You can get single- and double-width fibreglass tower decks, typically with a choice of either a 1.8m deck or a 2.5m platform.

Why Hire Fibreglass Over Other Scaffold Types?

As it’s non-conductive and spark resistant, hire fibreglass scaffolding when working on or near electrical systems.
