With more than 5,128 vacancies in the construction industry with 25 miles of the Halifax area at the time of writing, business appears to be booming across West Yorkshire and beyond. However, as the demand for experienced construction workers is currently outstripping the amount of suitable employees, there’s an increasing number of contractors coming into the Halifax and West Yorkshire areas who need quick, reasonably priced, and easy access to scaffolds, ladders, and low level access equipment.

Reliable hire of scaffolds, ladders, and low level access equipment

Unless you were born and raised in Halifax or currently work in West Yorkshire, you may be unaware of our access equipment sales and hire company – Zig Zag Access.

Zig Zag Access helps companies across Halifax, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Nottinghamshire, and The Midlands with construction projects. We stock a vast range of access equipment in our Leeds city centre depot, and can deliver the majority of items to locations that fall within our delivery areas on a hire basis.

Low Level Access

Our low level access platforms are suited to a variety of tasks – both internal and external. Our extensive range of podiums and folding towers allow you to select the right product for the task at hand. However, should you need expert advice on which type of low level access equipment your project would best benefit from, don’t hesitate to ask our team of professionals at Zig Zag Access. You can hire Alpha Step, Delta Deck, Sherpascopic, and Zap 2 podiums and platforms for jobs that require a platform height of up to 4.2m and a platform size of between 0.6m x 0.44m and 5.8m x 3.2m.


Scaffolds are required for many construction projects that are carried out in Halifax and Yorkshire. Because they come in so many different shapes and sizes, buying them all in and finding a secure place to store them is pretty much impossible for most construction companies. Therefore, Zig Zag Access offers a vast selection of scaffolds for hire, including the Octo 250, Stairwell Towers, and Boxing Ring Towers.

Scaffolds provide security, comfort, and flexibility for construction contractors, and if you choose the Octo 250 tower, you’ll have a wider choice of working heights than any other system. Its climbing frame design allows for 250mm centres on a full-size 2m frame and up to seven smaller-sized frames.


There’s a reason why Zig Zag Access is known as THE go-to place for trade ladders in Halifax, as well as throughout Yorkshire. We stock an extensive range of Aluminium Extension Ladders, Combination Ladders, and Roof Ladders, as well as specialist ladders – all of which are certified to BSEN 131 standard.

Our experienced team will be happy to advise you on which ladders are best suited to any particular job. So, feel free to ask our advice either in-store or over the phone.
