Product overview

Whether you’re painting, cleaning, building or tackling any other serious job at height, a quality scaffolding tower is essential for the enthusiastic home handyman.

With a wide non-slip platform you’ll have plenty of room to move around safely. The tower is sturdy with tough cross braces for exceptional stability - exactly what you want when you’re high up off the ground! The lockable rubber castor wheels make it easy to roll it to your next spot. You can even work on uneven surfaces simply by adjusting the height of one side of the platform.

This scaffolding tower has been robotic welded then fully hot dip galvanised. This means the joints aren’t going to rust or become weak, even if you leave it out in the rain. The rivetless, weldless joints in the platform also give it extra strength, so not only is it super reliable, this scaffolding will make sure you get the job done safely as well.

A solid scaffolding tower is a great investment that will last for years - saving you the cost and trouble of hiring one again and again. Order yours today. You’ll wonder how you ever did without it.

Comes with a 2 Year Trade Tested warranty.

A cost effective and versatile product which has made chores easier but more importantly safer to execute. It has been used frequently since purchase for jobs inside and outside the house.

Loved this, easy for two of us to put up. Just needs outriggers on one side to make sure it does not tip over, but great.

Well made for the price all steel so can be left outside erected. Not the sort to be erected every day. Definitely needs the separate stabilizers if you are going to work on the top levels.

The cost of hiring scaffolding can get very high especially if you're like me and need it to do odd jobs when I'm ready. I end having to hire for weeks. This has certainly removed that pain. I was delighted to see how quick and easy the tower is to setup. And I'm able to reach pretty much all of the areas on our 2 storied house. Perfect thank you!

Solid structure, functions well, standing platforms where they hook on to rail some are not cut out properly, knock with hammer pretty hard to release it. I used a grinder and reshaped it, all good now!!!

Good value for money

Positives - really simple to assemble, very good value for money. Planks feel sturdy for me (~100kg), can double them up to make them more so. If you are a DIY'er trying to avoid having to get more expensive rental scaffolding (like me...) it will do the trick just fine Negative - not great quality control, I needed to scrape out some metal blocking one tube and fix one of the braces that didn't fit properly. If you want to work at the top I highly recommend getting the extra support braces, they make a huge difference... otherwise the scaffold will feel pretty wobbly.

Useful and perfectly adequate for purpose. I like it is steel not aluminium.

AJ Auckland

Great value for money

Was initially hesitant, but its built well, moves easily on the castors which when locked are sturdy. Was missing one R Clip, otherwise in great condition. The extra plank I purchased has made a great safe working platform. It has already paid for itself compared to hiring scaffold.

Value for money

I'd buy another. Although some finishing work was required, heavy drips of galv at leg bases, I had to file it down so the leg sockets fitted correctly. The bracing retainer clips were faulty from manufacture in two places. I didn't trust these clips alone and strapped the braces up tight to legs with heavy cable zip ties. I'd suggest a threaded stud with nut here. Anyway I'm getting on with the job and it's a whole lot safer than accessing roof from a ladder. Also saving a fortune on scaffold hire.

It is good!

over 2 years ago


Eventually used on holidays to paint my house (2-storey building, nearly 6 m high. Can't even imagine how I'd do the job without this Scaffolding Tower. And because the job was bog and I had to do it over the month period - to buy the tower was a better option than hire. Bought it without safety outriggers but decided to buy them later - tower is definitely more stable. Recommend. What I didn't like: some pins in the wheel block got rusted in couple of weeks. Mmmmm.... Could do better....

Solid Construction

This galvanized steel scaffolding is very sturdy. It was a bit of a challenge assembling by myself, but would be easy with two people. It could have come with instructions, even though it is quite easy to figure it out. I have used aluminium scaffolding before that was a bit flimsy.

Rusty Canterbury

Great piece of kit

over 3 years ago


I recently installed a new ceiling fan in our lounge, which has a cathedral style ceiling, a 5 metre peak. I purchased this scaffolding to allow me access the ceiling safely and this is exactly what this scaffolding allowed me to do. The erection process was executed by my myself with the assistance of my wife, to lift the top end sections into place. Weight wise, the sections can be be moved by a person with average lifting capacity. Having worked on building sites for many years and using scaffold on a number of occasions, I found no difficultly in putting the unit together, but my wife did say that for someone who had not done this before the job could be rather daunting. Suggestion of adding somesort of assembling instructions for those customers who have not done this prior would be of great benefit. Beside that minor issue, a great piece of kit for anyone who has height access issues. Falling from a ladder and causing yourself serious injury or even death is not worth the risk, especially when this kit is available at this cost.

Well designed equipment

over 3 years ago


Owning schools that train people in scaffold erection and use, I have to say how impressed I am with the design and quality of this product. My only comment or suggestion would be that the manufacturer offers half height safety rails and perhaps kick boards for the top section. With these additions the set would be highly acceptable.

Michael Otago

Works a charm

over 3 years ago


As a novice, they took a bit of figuring out, but they absolutely do the job I need them to do. Some of the welding is a bit average but it doesn't actually affect the way the scaff works.

Generally good quality finish though some sections minor rough - no show-stoppers. Easy to erect with two able people. Good value for money work platform for the handyman.

RICK Hawkes Bay

From a welders point of view the quality is crap and i would be ashamed if i welded these components. From a value for money point you could not make it and have it deliverd for the same money. It works well and is easy to put up. The frieght co TOLL here in Hastings is the best there is . Full marks to them. Trade teseted service is also fantastic.
