Its common terminology in the world, the pipe scaffold, refers to the tool which is used to finish the work on the external wall, interior decoration or work at height. Most parts of the scaffold tubes include the accessories installed height, the safety net around the external wall and equipment helping to finish the downside and upside in the air.
The common material of the scaffold tubing is bamboo, wood and steel tube or synthetic material. Some scaffolding is also used as formwork in some construction site and they are already widely used in the industries of advertisement, municipal building, transportation, and mining projects.
