  • Longspan bridging needs can be fully accommodated with purpose-designed Layher Bridging Truss system.
  • Excellent load bearing capability and structural strength are key features with every Layher installation.
  • Fully accommodates wide range of sloping and uneven ground conditions.

Offshore / Onshore

The specialized build and maintenance requirements of this sector, typical of industrial or processing facilities, call for a scaffolding and access system that is safer, easy to install, highly versatile and also rigorously designed to address extremely demanding environments.

  • Layher systems can accommodate even the most complex of structural and pipework installations.
  • Ideal for use in all installations – from ad hoc, short-term access needs to major plant maintenance projects.Lightweight design enhances ease of handling and installation procedures.
  • Designed to optimise transport and storage requirements – of particular note offshore where space availability is at a premium.
  • Minimum number of components simplifies installation and also helps to maximise safe usage.
  • Robust construction and durable design offers excellent repeat usage and dismantling capability, and helps to address challenging weather conditions – particularly offshore.
  • Access scaffolds and protection systems, including the Protect design, are proven in a range of offshore/onshore installations.
  • System ranges comprise access scaffolds, stairs, temporary roofing, protection and containment systems, and a wide range of accessories to meet the needs of each individual maintenance project.

Bridging Systems

From roads to rail and from public access to industrial site or construction location – the purpose-designed range of bridging systems from Layher fulfils personnel access needs. Whether to meet short-term requirements or for long-term, on-going projects, key features offer important advantages for every application.

  • Wide spans, inherent strength and speed of installation are all key factors that underpin the success of the Layher Bridging system range.
  • The Layher Bridging Truss design is often key and provides the ability to install spans up to 30 metres – ideal for personnel movement or as a support for heavy loads.
  • In-built structural stability means minimal deflection, even over the longest of spans.
  • Wide bay design reduces the number of components needed, which enhances installation speed and helps to maximise safety.
  • A choice of decking, protection and roofing systems can also be specified with all bridging designs which can also link directly to the acclaimed range of Layher access stairs

Petrochemical

The specialised build and maintenance requirements of this sector call for a scaffolding and access system that is both highly versatile and also rigorously designed to address extremely demanding environments.

  • Layher systems can accommodate even the most complex of structural and pipework installations.
  • Lightweight design enhances ease of handling and installation procedures.
  • Designed to optimise transport and storage requirements.
  • Minimum number of components simplifies installation and also helps to maximize safe usage.
  • Robust construction offers excellent repeat usage capability, and helps to address challenging weather conditions.
  • Access scaffolds and protection systems, including the Protect design, are proven in a range of petrochemical installations.

Refurbishment, Demolition & Renovation

From restoration to site demolition, the ability to contain working activity within a defined area offers major benefits, both on site and for the adjacent environment. From simplicity of installation to ease of use, it is vital that the specialist trades at the heart of this sector gain access exactly as and when needed. The particular requirements of the refurbishment sector places emphasis on key design characteristics of Layher access scaffold,  temporary roofing systems and Protect panel design. 

  • System choices meet the precise needs of historic building renovation – from churches to listed buildings and national monuments.Protect panels can be supplied with a choice of dimensions and with additional fittings, such as security doors.
  • In-built strength reflects the loadings often associated with the storage of stonework and brickwork supplies on scaffold decks.
  • Scaffold designs link directly to Layher Protect systems, to provide both containment and secure lockable access.The Protect system provides an ideal barrier against dust and, where required, sound – minimizing environmental impact outside construction area.
  • Speed and ease of installation can be a major benefit for project scheduling. Can be installed to meet a wide variety of uneven and sloping ground conditions.
  • Transport and storage needs addressed by equipment design and enhanced by minimum component requirement. Choice of accessories position both the workforce and materials at the exact point where needed.
  • Wide bay scaffold design, with minimal bracing, optimizes access onto the scaffold structure and minimizes the number of standards and thus tie-in– of particular note, for example, for stone restoration projects and window replacement.

Civil Engineering & Infrastructure

Often large scale, access and protection installations in a civil engineering or infrastructure environment must meet key requirements in terms of strength, safety and cost efficiency. Layher can point to a long list of successful installations where these key objectives have been fully realised.

  • System choice ensures ease of installation matches precise operational, access and protection needs.
  • Proven Layher systems range from scaffolding and access to formwork installations.
  • In-built fixings and wide bay design minimise the number of required components, helping to reduce material costs and optimising transport and manpower usage.
  • Sloping and uneven ground conditions can be accommodated where required.
  • Installations can match exact application needs – from wide spans and suspended designs to birdcage and load bearing structures.
