No lucK in a search of past posts...I'm looking for a residential scaffold to use in finished homes to hang 2 story entryway lights. I'd prefer fiberglass & I guess the working platform would need to be approx. 14-16'.

I don't know of any fiberglass ones. I would think they would be heavy. Here's a link to some aluminum ones.

More often I think A frame ladders are used. I believe it's a 2 person job especially in a finished home, but some have set up a 14' by themselves.

12' is too short for 2 story homes. Some have stood on the top and had to reach for the cieling.

14' is ok for your standard 2 story homes

16' will work when the cieling slopes up a bit, the floor drops down a few steps, as well as your standard 2 story homes. The 16' is a double sided which is good because one can hold a fixture while the other wires it.

If you want to borrow a 16' let me know.

Scaffolding can be heavy and use 2 to set it up safely.
I would guess on spending around $1000 to get what your looking for in steel. It is also another thing to store.

Tiger:
'Baker' type scaffolding kind of works up to 12', 2 sections, w/rails & outriggers. Perry is one brand.

The aluminum pipe type has advantages as far as weight, but the cost is higher.

16 foot fiberglass A ladder, and a helper? Tough to navigate in a lot of homes.

Tiger,
Try your local drywall supplier. I've purchased 3 sections of 6' bakers scaffold from mine for around $250 per secion. Each section comes complete with frame, wheels, and platform. The outriggers were extra. Mine is Sunny brand.

Thanks all. I got a triple scaffold with outrigging & guardrail from Badger Ladder. I'll let you know how it works out.

Thanks,
Dave
