Can Layher meet the unique and complex requirements of large-scale industrial and commercial projects?

Layher offers two versatile scaffolding systems to meet any type and size of project. Allround® Scaffolding, the industry standard for modular scaffolding, offers unbeatable adaptability and flexibility. It is the scaffold of choice for industrial facilities, chemical plants, power stations, refineries, construction sites, factories, shipyards, airfields, theaters, arenas, and highway and bridge construction sites. Allround® is ideal for demanding, complicated applications where conventional scaffolding cannot be optimally and economically used.

Layher SpeedyScaf® Scaffolding, unbeatably strong and reliable, is the leading frame scaffolding on the market, with built-in safety features that ensure easy code compliance. The advantage of SpeedyScaf® is its rapid, easy-to-understand, bolt-free assembly. With only five basic elements and few manual operations, SpeedyScaf® provides a secure base for virtually any job. Well-designed loading capacities and project-based standard lengths enhance the practicality of SpeedyScaf® and multiply its uses, eliminating the need for more expensive solutions.

What’s the delivery time on a Layher scaffolding system?

Layher guarantees quick availability of Layher scaffold products anytime, anywhere. With a huge inventory in the U.S. and Canada, Layher can deliver materials for any size job, and handle all trucking and shipment arrangements to the job site from three, fully stocked locations: Houston, Texas; Mobile, Alabama; and Baltimore, Maryland. These facilities also supply Layher scaffold products to Canadian customers.

Can I rent scaffolding materials for peak project loads or smaller projects?

Layher’s priority is to supply scaffold to professional companies in the field. In addition to direct sales, Layher has Rent-to-Own and Lease-Buy programs that allow customers to rent or lease scaffold materials at competitive rates. If you choose to purchase the materials after your rental term or if you fulfill the lease contract period, the majority of your payments is applied as equity. This allows you to take ownership of the scaffolding materials after a set period of time.

Can scaffold erectors tie off on Layher scaffolding?

Scaffold erectors face safety issues if they’re not tied off on to something, even if they are wearing a personal fall arrest system. Layher tested its scaffold systems for various tie-off points. For specific inquiries, please contact Layher at info@layher.us or by phone at 866-300-0904 (USA & Canada).
