Preserving a Piece of History: First Church in Albany through the Eyes of a Scaffolder

In Collaboration with Tri-City Scaffolding

Certain buildings just catch the eye of a scaffolder. Interesting angles, odd leanings, and jutting spires fire their creativity and problem-solving abilities, igniting a desire to build up and surround with caged frame. Bring these architectural features together in an iconic landmark, and you’ve got a real dream project. The draw is twofold: to engage a unique engineering challenge head on while contributing to a piece of history. Only rarely do such projects come around, but we are sure glad when they do.

Layher Stairs, Decks, and Guardrails Make Appearance at Electric Zoo

Pictured Above: The Layher Stairway Tower 750 was specially designed to provide public access on a notable slope for last year’s Electric Zoo festival in New York.

The Layher name may conjure images of construction, but Layher temporary access stair systems, steel decks, and guardrails are often utilized at popular events and music festivals such as New York’s own Electric Zoo festival, taking place annually during Labor Day weekend. Layher scaffolding has accommodated the festival’s 150,000 plus fans for several years, helping to make the three-day festival accessible and organized.

Lightweight from Layher

as featured in Access International July-August 2013

Layher has just debuted Allround Lightweight – a new, lighter modular scaffolding system. Shown for the first time in Munich at Bauma 2013, Allround Lightweight features lighter components, increased load-bearing capacity and an AutoLock function for wedge head connectors. According to Layher, Allround Lightweight can be assembled 10% faster than other scaffold systems and is 12% more efficient to transport.

“Since assembly, dismantling and transport still account for 80% of the costs for scaffolding construction, three factors are critically important: design, functionality and component weight,” said Layher’s Marketing Director Franz Greisinger. “Studies have clearly shown that a significant reduction in assembly and dismantling time can be achieved by cutting back on component weight.”

Layher used high-tensile steel to produce thinner walls (the wall thickness was reduced from 3.2mm to 2.8mm) to get Allround Lightweight as light as possible.

“Depending on the length of the components, scaffolding erectors have up to 14% less weight to handle when transporting components by truck to the construction site and in scaffolding assembly itself,” said a company spokesman. “The wall thickness has been reduced in Allround O-ledgers LW as well, saving up to 1.6 kg while increasing bending stress capacity by 24%.”

Allround Scaffolding Flexes its Power as a Power Station is Repaired

As featured in Site Seeing, Edition 40 2014

For maintenance work on power stations, time is of the essence. That goes for the Whakamaru hydroelectric power station too, an important node in New Zealand’s national grid, which together with the other power stations located along the Waikato River, supplies much of North Island with electricity. To complete the work on one of the sloping penstocks as quickly as possible, the decision-makers could only consider Allround Scaffolding. It allowed the scaffolding erectors to build the work scaffolding 20 metres above the ground not only quickly and above all more safely, but also to optimally adapted to the difficult geometry – in just 23 hours.
