RAPID MATERIAL AVAILABILTY
CLOSE-KNIT NETWORK OF SERVICE POINTS
EXPERT ASSEMBLERS AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AT THE CONSTRUCTION SITE
As leading innovators, we work continually to make scaffolding construction even simpler, even faster and above all even safer with our products. The development work focuses on: improving safety during assembly and dismantling, increase in assembly capacity thanks to lower weight, more ergonomic shape and reduced number of components, increase in efficiency and profitability, complete integratability of new products into existing system and opening up of new fields of business with new products.
Risk assessments and the measures derived from this for protection against falls during assembly and dismantling are brought into focus more and more. For compliance with this and with further safety guidelines, Layher has devised a range of temporary and also system-integrated solutions for collective protection.
Layher can draw on flexible production resources and significant inventories, and so can guarantee customers uniquely fast delivery at all times. We can deliver dependably and punctually for orders placed worldwide. “No time to lose" is also the motto of our logistics concept: customers can collect the materials they need from their Layher service centre, have them sent to their warehouse, or delivered just-in-time to the site. This means they can start work without delay and complete their projects efficiently while maintaining the original top quality.
A worldwide network of subsidiary companies ensures that we are always close to our customers. You can rely on our Layher standards wherever you are in the world: local warehouses, technical support, training in accordance with national regulations and safety standards. The benefits for you: We can respond optimally to market-specific needs, because we know the local conditions, cultural characteristics and of course each country’s specific regulations. This makes us competent partners, for internationally operating companies too.
Our priority is our customers’ success. This is why we believe in close cooperation, and invest in genuine and lasting partnerships at every level. Our well-qualified engineers devote themselves to your specific requirements, finding solutions for you that deliver the right results at the right price – including directly on the site.

The future in scaffolding construction is digital – and its name is SIM

Scaffolding Information Modeling – SIM for short – is a process based on 3D models and designed by Layher to meet the specific requirements of scaffolding construction. SIM not only allows you to plan, assemble and manage temporary scaffolding structures more efficiently, but also affords access to BIM at the same time.

  • Planning and scheduling certainty at every site.
  • Increase in safety and in profitability for every project.
  • Transparency in all work steps and cost control.

Solutions

Fire SAFETY, Wood-free Solutions

Reduction of the fire risk is a requirement frequently expressed for scaffolding in refineries, chemical factories and other fire-sensitive industrial plant. Components made of wood can be ruled out for obvious reasons. Layher has the optimum alternatives: system decks and matching toe boards made of steel or aluminium. Gap solutions made of steel, and scaffolding coverings made of low-inflammability tarpaulins or the Protect System, round off the range.
       
Solution-oriented components
      
  • Steel deck LW
  • Stalu deck
  • Toe boards of steel and aluminium
  • Steel plank
              

Safer and flat work areas – optimised for the job to be done

Since no plant is like another, scaffolding systems have to be flexible and adaptable. With Layher scaffolding, that’s no problem: Thanks to the option of laying the decks over the rosettes, a gap-free solution can generally used without additional expense or effort. For special cases specific to the site, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of expansion parts for achieving completely closed work surfaces within the system.

  • Internal ladder access
  • Platform stairs
  • Stairtowers 200, 500 and 750
        

Suspended scaffolding solutions

When the work areas are very high up, standard scaffolding structures can often be uneconomical due to high material and labour costs. With Allround Scaffolding, suspended solutions can be achieved without any problem in such cases. Pull-resistant securing of the standards with hinged pins or by bolting them together allows forces to be optimally transmitted.
    
Solution-oriented components
    
  • Suspended scaffolding structures
  • Suspended scaffolding accessories
  • Cantilevering and crane movability
         

Circular scaffolding

Closing the gaps in round equipment is often a challenge. Covering with steel or wood planks can be classified as a risk of tripping. In addition, these must be protected against unintentional lifting and slipping, which can cause problems depending on the type of soil used.
  
Solution-oriented components
   
  • Flexible angle selection of Allround rosette
  • Work surface adaptation for circular scaffolding
      

Bridging

Small spans are possible with Allround Scaffolding without the use of additional components, using standards, ledgers and diagonal braces as a lattice structure.
    
Solution-oriented components
         
  • Allround Scaffolding standard parts
  • Lattice beams
  • Aluminium FlexBeam
  • Allround FW System
  • Allround Bridging System
             

Crane movability

The high fitting precision in the Layher system enables scaffolding structures to be preassembled on the ground, complete or in individual segments. Thanks to pull-resistant connection of all individual parts, they can be moved quickly and easily into position using a crane. This is a major advantage when it comes to efficiency and profitability. At the same time, safety during assembly increases many times over. Because the best fall protection is when there is no risk of falls in the first place.
