Plastering high walls and ceilings can be a lengthy process when you don’t have the right equipment. Constant moving of ladders and trestle systems can be time consuming and essentially a loss of potential income. Plastering stilts are invaluable when it comes to completing such jobs.

The basic function of plastering stilts is to allow the plasterer to work at heights with ease and the ability to move freely whilst working.

Key points to take note of when considering your next purchase of plastering stilts and to ensure you make the right decision:

What size do you require?

Stilts are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate for different heights between ceilings and contractors.

Do the stilts have adjustable legs?

This feature allows a plasterer to easily and quickly adjust heights of stilts if a property has different room heights.

Do the stilts provide good internal movement?

If plastering stilts provide good internal movement, this increases the level of stability. Therefore when reaching for those hard to get places you can be assured that you won’t fall over.

Strapping into the stilts.

Good stilts should be secured at the foot as well as the calf to provide maximum comfort and security.

What about shock absorbents?

Stilts should have inbuilt shock absorbents 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?

Any plastering stilts you purchase should have unbeatable professional quality. Good quality plastering stilts are manufactured from a lightweight material that is easy to carry and use.

Weight restrictions.

Always check the weight limits of plastering stilts. Ensure the acceptable weight range is suitable for everyone that makes use of the stilts.
