According to Pro Plaster Products , plastering ceilings and high walls can be a lengthy process when the right equipment is not available. Persistent moving of ladders and trestle systems can be time consuming, which is why plastering stilts are invaluable when it comes to completing such jobs.
Plastering stilts enable the plasterer to work at heights with ease and the ability to move freely whilst working.
Pro Plaster Products offer the following key points to take note of when considering the purchase of plastering stilts, ensuring the correct decision is made.
What size is required?
Plastering stilts are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate for different heights between ceilings and contractors.
Do the plastering stilts have adjustable legs?
Adjustable legs enable the plasterer to quickly and easily adjust the height of the stilts if there are different room heights in a single property.
Do the plasterers stilts provide good internal movement?
If plastering stilts provide good internal movement, this increases the level of stability and the user can be assured that they will not fall over when trying to reach those hard to reach places.
Strapping into the stilts
Good plastering stilts should be secured at the foot as well as the calf to provide maximum comfort and security.
What about shock absorbers?
Plastering stilts should feature inbuilt shock absorbers to support a plasterers joints during movement. This is important due to the amount of time spent walking on stilts as a plasterer.
How does the quality measure up?
All plastering stilts should have unbeatable professional quality. Good quality plastering stilts are manufactured from a lightweight material that is easy to carry and use.
Always check the weight limits of plastering stilts. Ensure the acceptable weight range is suitable for everyone that makes use of the stilts.
