More Possibilities - Layher Products and ServicesLayher's product characteristics and services help customers to achieve long-term success and increase the profitability of their companies. The Layher Allround Scaffolding has been established as a synonym for modular scaffolds in the market. The Allround Scaffolding offers unsurpassed versatility to be used at construction sites, chemical industry, power plants, aircraft, shipyards, event sector, theatres and arenas.
Allround scaffolding uses a simple, unique and bolt free connection technology. Sliding the wedge head over the rosette and inserting the wedge into the opening immediately secures the component. There is still sufficient play to secure the other end of the ledger. A hammer blow to the wedge transforms the loose connection into a superbly strong structurally rigid one. The face of the wedge head is now precisely positioned against the standard.
To transfer pulling force, every frame is secured by locking pins or bolts to each other. In this way the tower can be assembled on the ground and placed by crane.

Application of All round for Historical Building – Friedenskirche churchLayher Allround System, the scaffolding company Mönch erected the work scaffolding for renovation works at the "Friedenskirche" church in Ludwigsburg not only very cost-effectively, but above all perfectly adapted to the local conditions – for safe working in highest altitude.

In order to adapt the work scaffolding exactly to the design characteristics of the tower – with short bay lengths due to the tapered cone with its structure divided by ornaments – the scaffolders had to do an accurate planning before starting to build the scaffolding. Only on the eastern façade that faces the street the scaffold was erected as an access on the total height of the tower. On the other sides of the tower, the scaffolders erected the scaffolding in a height of 32 meters, where the tower gallery is. The bearing in this area was carried out with steel beams and lattice girders. In order to be able to work on the ledges, additional suspended scaffolding at approximately 2 meters under the tower gallery was necessary. A passenger lift did not only go easy on the employees, but also the time account. Thus 5 scaffolders erected the scaffolding in 5 weeks quickly, efficiently and, above all, all the way to the top due to careful planning and sophisticated logistics – a precision landing.
Now there are no more obstacles in the way of a quick redevelopment of the dilapidated belfry. Especially the quadrangular round sandstone columns show considerable damages. The mortar has become loose in the gaps; the stones are no longer placed safely on top of each other – a danger for the building, but also for passing traffic.
The main cause, however, is the weather, as the sandstone cannot withstand the huge thermal strain. Currently, the need for renovation is being analyzed exactly from the scaffolding; afterwards the stone restoration company and the stonemasons will start their work.
