Scaffoldings in most of asia are made of bamboo and I heard they are safer and stronger than ours. Yes, for skyscrappers too. _________________ Opokonverob Project (A RPG like in the good old days)

Eh, that scaffold has some problems. It's missing a 6" toeboard along the bottom, so you don't kick anything off it by accident. Also, using a wicker floormat or runners for planking is fucking rediculous. I reach new heights safely since I took the OSHA Scaffolding Construction Outreach Program. Even got a T-shirt for it. _________________ He's not dead, he's going to teach god how to drive.

I was walking by scaffolding in London where the workers were handing giant pieces of pipe up from one level to another by hand - I kept having visions of a piece being dropped and plunging through my skull. _________________ Bridgekeepers robes and a .223 Pistol, an unstoppable combination.

I have help build/take down dozens of scaffolds and there was never a incident in handballing equipment. All someone needs to do is twist whatever is passed up/down once they have control of it. Easy and fast.
