Where is it good to buy scaffolding

Postby Sage » Tue Jan 19, 2010 5:59 pm

Title says it all. I may not be at this years burn but for my prep of next year I want to start by designing a scaffold tower and thus need to know where everyone gets theirs. Thanks

Call United Rental in Reno. Depending on what you want they will rent and deliver it to your campsite.

A tower for *what*?

What I am thinking of is something like two seperate towers that are three stories each. These will serve as tents and camp. The towers will then be linked by a bridge with railings so nobody can fall off easily. Also I was thinking of more buying the scaffolding because there are other events that I go to that would be great for a camp like that.

I'd suggest buying it locally so you can do a practice run on erecting & covering it, and so you can make sure you have all the parts needed before you get to the desert. And no doubt Chicago would cheaper than Reno.

:D
I was just about to say... Craigslist. Saw quite a bit of it on the Sacramento list recently. Watch for bent or mismatched parts. I have some frames of two different brands, and they are ALMOST interchangeable. :cry:

Always install ALL the locking pins. Gravity is NOT enough to keep it together.

Have fun!
