Offshore Scaffolding Sales is a dedicated company that exports a comprehensive range of scaffolding and ancillary products. The company is an alliance between Caspian Access and Plant Hire, which have locations based in Hull, Immingham, Leicester and Middlesbrough, UK.

Both companies have extensive experience in supplying scaffolding and ancillary equipment to major onshore construction projects and offshore projects in the oil, gas and petro-chemical industries.

New and used scaffolding equipment

As one of the largest independent exporters of scaffolding equipment from the UK, exporting scaffolding around the world from Australia to Zimbabwe, both new and second hand (used), Offshore Scaffolding Sales has a vast network of the very best timber mills in Europe. This allows us to supply the finest quality traditional scaffold boards, which are all produced to required British standard BS2482.

Laminated scaffold boards

Offshore Scaffolding Sales has a joint venture with a leading manufacturer of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) boards. We supply LVL boards produced to the OSHA industry standard and pre-supply goods that are PFS certified.

LVL scaffolding boards are a manufactured timber product specifically for use as a scaffold board. The unique process by which it is manufactured avoids the natural defects commonly found in sold sawn timber. Natural characteristics such as knots and ware are rearranged to maximize strength and minimize warping and splitting.

The timber used is of the best quality. European whitewood, poplars and Asian pine is selected for the manufacture of our LVL boards. The timber used is selected from top-quality mills that can guarantee all timber is from sustainable forests either to their natural standards or to the FSC standards covering the earth’s natural resources.

Our LVL boards are supplied with PFS certification, which ensures correct procedure and quality control.

Offshore Scaffolding Sales’ recent and past projects include supplying the scaffolding requirements for the Espoir FPSO project, the Okume project in Equatorial New Guinea and the BPTT project on the Cassia platform off the South East coast of Trinidad in the West Indies, as well as the joint venture between Bechtel-Enka for the second generation in Tengis, Kazakhstan.
