While the majority of scaffolders take precautions to avoid damage to properties when working at height, accidents can and do still happen. Whether you’re tackling a chimney, the eaves of a listed stately home, or a roof with Velux windows, it’s important to put in place as many safety measures as possible, and that means protecting the building in question, not just your workers.

Stop Nocs are a simple and effective way of avoiding damage caused by erecting, moving, using, and dismantling scaffolding. Although most reputable scaffolding companies have public liability insurance, this doesn’t necessarily save you from the wrath of an angry homeowner or site manager should any accidental damage occur.

Prevent scaffolding damage with Stop Nocs

While they’re not 100% foolproof, Stop Nocs can help protect the surfaces against which scaffold towers and podium steps are placed. They act as protection bumpers with shock absorbing properties, and can prove invaluable when working with many types of access equipment. They are also fire-retardant. So, as well as stopping your scaffold towers scuffing and denting building exteriors, Stop Nocs won’t cause premises to go up in smoke in the event of a fire.

Here at Zig Zag Access, we sell Stop Nocs in three commonly-used sizes – 150mm, 250mm, and 275mm. These are usually sold in packs of four, but if you require a larger amount, we can ship you multiple packs. Once you’ve received your items, all you need to do is simply push them on to fit around the corners and edges of your scaffold tower or structure. These Stop Noc bumpers will help prevent damage to the building, as well as damage to your scaffolding, workmen, and passers-by.
