Not every scaffolding application is ‘temporary’. SGB tube and fitting scaffolding and Cuplok staircases towers are part of at least a six–year, £5 (€7.5) million effort by specialist firm Davis Langdon LLP to preserve the16th–century warship Mary Rose, dry docked in Portsmouth in the UK since 1982. SGB is replacing its original scaffolding, which has rusted because of the continuous spraying of water for preservation of the ship. The new equipment, installed over a 14–month period, will provide access throughout the project for archaeologists and conservation staff inside a sealed enclosure for spraying water–soluble wax polyethylene glycol, used to preserve the ship.
