Bamboo Scaffolding
« on: July 24, 2009, 08:19:20 AM »
The subject of Hong Kong's Bamboo Scaffolding came up in another thread. I thought I'd share the two most detailed pictures I was able to find on the internet.

Picture 1

Picture 2

Pictures 3 and 4

It seems like the structure just depends on a lot of wraps as in the instructions here, from a religious site that came up during the google search.

The pictures don't seem to reveal any consistent knotting. Not to me anyway. You would think/hope that there are some kind of standards for the high rise scaffolding. I'm assuming the don't fall down very often, would we hear of it, like those cranes falling off skyscrapers in New York?
