Kapiti Scaffolding Edge Protection

Working at heights can be a dangerous task, which is why edge protection scaffolding is a critical safety solution. It not only offers a safe working environment but also reduces the risk of slips, trips, and falls.

This functional scaffolding system is designed to provide safety and peace of mind in high-risk areas, ensuring the welfare of employees.

Scaffolding Edge Protection Features

Rigidly fixed around the perimeter of the working area without tying it to your property, they protect workings from falling off the scaffolding as well.

Installed around the lower edge of the scaffolding platforms, they help prevent any tools or materials from falling off and reduce the hazard risk for workers below.

Reliable and secure design to ensure it remains in place during use.

Ergonomic Nature
Adjustable to any height and suitable for different project requirements.

Weather Resistant
The scaffold remains stable and secure throughout the project, even in adverse weather.

Exterior Kapiti Scaffolding

Exterior Scaffolding Hire in Kapiti must be vital to withstand the pressure of the wind and its loading requirements. When using the exterior scaffolding solution correctly, we can successfully complete your project without any delays and be confident when working at heights.

Our team of experts performs weekly inspections to ensure that the scaffold remains the same as it was erected. In situations where there are high winds, we take extra precautions to ensure the safety of the surroundings during the erection and dismantling of the scaffolds. Depending on the nature of the service, we adjust the scaffolds accordingly.

Both long-term and short-term scaffolding options are available for hire in Kapiti.

We found Erect Scaffolding to be very excellent to deal with. Dhillon was on time with the quote and everything on the quote was clear and detailed. Erect Scaffolding were on time for the setup and removal of the scaffolding. The scaffolding looked very tidy with no overhangs, easy to move around and easy for our painter to move up and down. The scaffolding was checked weekly and we would happily use Erect It Scaffolding at anytime.

We required scaffolding 3 stories high on our residential home and Dhillon was fantastic to deal with. I would not hesitate to use Erect It's service again. It was pouring with rain on the day of install but no issues they got it up. 100% don't go anywhere else.

Erect It helped us with a relatively small job with poor access. The team were helpful and professional, setting up safely with exclusion zones. It was no problem including a return visit to add scaffolding once we found we needed a wider operating platform. Professional and helpful, would definitely use Erect It Scaffolding again.

Kapiti Scaffolding New Builds

For residential & commercial property developers in Kapiti, we are the first choice for scaffolding services.

Our equipment is customised to be more flexible, suitable, and viable for any project. Every piece of equipment undergoes rigorous quality checks to ensure optimal performance during construction.

Scaffolding for New Builds in Kapiti is essential for 2 reasons


Scaffolding provides easy access to various heights and areas of the construction site. This is crucial for tasks like bricklaying, window installation, painting, and more. It ensures that workers can reach every part of the building efficiently.


Scaffolding improves workflow efficiency. Workers don’t have to continuously set up and dismantle temporary structures to access different parts of the building. This saves time and allows for a smoother construction process.

How long does scaffolding take to set up?

The time it takes to set up scaffolding depends on the complexity of the structure. A simple scaffold may only take a few hours, while more complex structures could take days to complete. We can provide you with a more accurate estimate once we know the details of your project.

What safety considerations should I keep in mind when using scaffolding?

Safety is always the top priority whenever scaffolding is used. Make sure to inspect the equipment regularly, and that all users are wearing appropriate PPE. All our jobs have pre-inspections and safety audits. Read more about this on our Health & Safety page.

What to consider when hiring scaffolders for your project?

Most importantly, you want to make sure that the person erecting the scaffolding is knowledgeable and NZ-qualified for the job.

Unfortunately, we have seen some clients spend a fortune fixing damage from previous, unprofessional scaffolding contractors.

Ensure contractors aren’t tying any scaffold components to your property (such as verandas and balconies) or walking on your roof straight after a new roof replacement as one scratch/dent can lead to rust – especially if you are near the sea.

When using a reputable, certified and professional scaffolding team like ours, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues as we take all these things into consideration.

Shrink-Wrapping Kapiti

Weatherproofing your construction project is essential for Kapiti homes. Especially during the colder and wetter months of the year, having your exterior shrink-wrapped is critical to the success of your project. At Erect It, we use only high-quality plastic that comes with a leak-proof guarantee that remains securely in place for the duration of your project.

All of the plastic we use for weatherproofing is recycled.
