Scaffold Alert
Scaffold Alert

SCAFFOLD ALERT proposes a design that warns of safety risks thus enhancing overall safety on construction scaffolding. It uses pressure-sensor nodes to detect overloading of a scaffold’s maximum safe load capacity. On detection of overloading, it activates flashing red danger lights and sounds an audible warning alarm. SCAFFOLD ALERT is a safe and environmentally friendly design that makes effective use of renewable energy.
