    Mr. Mithilesh Kumar, Director,
    Layher Scaffolding Systems Pvt Ltd
    Layher Group produces high-quality scaffolding systems in Germany. The company has worldwide presence with more than 30 sales subsidiaries. The products are being used by industries like Construction, chemical plants, power plants, shipyards, Refinery and offshore. Due to innovative products, superior technical solutions, and absolute customer-oriented service package, Layher has become the standard in scaffolding systems worldwide.

    Layher Scaffolding
    The Layher Allround Scaffolding reduces assembly times, labour costs and increases safety when erecting scaffolds around church steeples, monuments and restaurants in high places; for scaffolds at or in boiler plants, tanks and pipelines; for scaffolds across working places, and supply lines, around machines, at or under bridges; scaffolds on construction sites or mobile scaffolds in tunnels. Simply each and every job can be carried out safer and quicker with Allround Scaffolding thereby saving costs. The building industry is presenting increased demands for load-bearing capacity and assembly variability in scaffolding.

    This is where Allround Scaffolding now setting new standards: a single system, as bricklayer's scaffolding, work scaffolding, safety scaffolding or falsework, with 73 cm, 109 cm or 140 cm bay width, with selectable storey heights and live loads of up to 6 kN/m2 depending on the bay width. Or assembled as scaffolding for formwork or support: with Allround Scaffoldings you're prepared for anything.

    Layher High Quality Scaffolding Systems
    Layher's present product characteristics and services help customers achieve long-term success and increase the profitability of their companies. The Layher Scaffolding has been established as a synonym for modular scaffolds in the market. The Allround and SpeedyScaf Scaffolding offers unsurpassed versatility to be used in construction sites, chemical industry, power plants, aircraft, shipyards, event sector, theatres, and arenas.

    Layher 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.

    The Allround connector is central element in the Allround modular system and the basis for the economic efficiency, high stress capability and safety of the entire system. This positive and force transmitting connection method is equally suitable for both steel and aluminium scaffolding structures.

    Application of Layher Scaffold for High Rise Building

    Layher Scaffolding System
    Construction of Façade Scaffold about 90 metres high was big challenge during the construction of Residential Building.

    By bracing the work scaffolding vertically with SpeedyScaf lattice beams, even the increased wind loads could be transferred without putting unnecessary strain on the structure.

    With Layher Scaffolding Systems, the Scaffolders had the ideal equipment for economical provision of scaffolding around the Façade. Easy assembly and the use of a hoist meant that the assembly time was just five weeks. Due to the outstanding quality of Layher's products, the lower assembly frames and the spindles can withstand enormous loads. Load Bearing capacity of individual spindles (baseplate) are subjected to a weight of up to 5 tons.

    During the construction the biggest challenge was posed by the recessed balconies on every second side of the building. Providing scaffolding around these drew on all the experience of the scaffolding erectors and flexibility of systems. But this problem too was quickly overcome with special structures.

    Especially on irregular designs due to different sizes of corner, the Allround/SpeedyScaf Scaffolding impresses with its flexibility and the safe and easy handling. With its advantages like screw-less quick and self-explanatory assembly, form-fitting and solid connection, dimensional stability and rigidity, scaffolders quickly create safe workspaces for the following assembly sections. Even in highest altitudes – and under high loads. After all, heavy stones have to be stored temporarily on the scaffold during the renovation.

    Layher Allround has a suitable solution for all access need on construction site. Access stairway towers for a broad spectrum of applications and requirements are created at the site for hoisting of concrete buckets, passenger hoist and to accommodate safe Modular Stairway/Access modular, accesses that always fit and match the system can be constructed (replacement of huge quantities of scaffolding pipes and clamps) by using Allround Scaffold Systems.
