INTELLIGENT ENGINEERING

INTELLIGENT ENGINEERING

Despite lower weights, the high load-bearing capacity of the Layher steel deck remains ̶ made possible by transverse and longitudinal reinforcements in deck and web sections. Improvements to the cross-section were achieved by locating material concentrations in structurally relevant areas. Transverse reinforcements, along with typical flared perforations in the surface, keep workers confident as they travel while longitudinal reinforcement provides optimum transmission of lashing forces during transport.

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

New lightweight decks integrate into existing Layher decks, allowing a seamless transition between decks. Upgrade your supply gradually to suit your budget and project needs without compromising the utility of existing stock. Flared surface perforations permit the use of the Layher locking screws for securing steel planks and cover plates into position.

ENHANCED HANDLING

ENHANCED HANDLING

As with the previous Layher deck, the steel cap has been redesigned for an improved and secure grip, making it compatible with the trusted T4 steel deck. in addition, the optimized underside of the longitudinal web ensures an ergonomic and steady grip, especially during vertical transport.

PROFITABILITY AND A SECURE FUTURE

PROFITABILITY AND A SECURE FUTURE

The Steel Deck LW ensures – as is usual at Layher – that investments are fully safeguarded since the deck can be installed together with all previous Layher scaffolding systems. The combination with steel decks of earlier generations presents no problems and results in a flat scaffolding deck surface. Stacking, too, is both easy and space-saving. As already familiar from earlier steel deck generations, the U-Steel Decks LW are also stacked in an interlocking manner. That minimizes the possible packing dimensions. It goes without saying that this stacking method is also possible in combination with steel decks of an earlier generation. All these measures result in high-value retention of your material stocks and their upgrading by purchasing innovative new products like the steel deck LW—a worthwhile investment.

The O-Steel Decks LW are also familiar from earlier generations, stacked directly on top of one another. The longitudinal profile ensures here that the stacked decks cannot slip. The O-Steel Deck LW can also be combined with O-steel decks of earlier manufacture in a mixed stack.

Faster Erection

FASTER ERECTION & DISMANTLING

FASTER ERECTION & DISMANTLING

SAVE WEIGHT & MONEY WITHOUT COMPROMISING STRENGTH.

Lighter is faster. Some 80% of the total cost of scaffolding is attributable to loading and unloading trucks, and to construction site erection and dismantling. Layher Lightweight’s reduced wall thickness means a greatly lowered component weight and up to 10% faster erection of birdcage structures.

LOWER SHIPMENT COSTS – GET MORE ON YOUR TRUCK WITH LIGHTER LOADS.

A truck‘s maximum permissible payload is determined by weight, not volume. Therefore Layher Lightweight components mean additional savings when it comes to shipping ledgers and standards to and from the construction site. For example, with a truck plated to carry a maximum load of 23 metric tons, you could transport approximately 6,400 m3 of birdcage scaffolding. With Layher Lightweight components, that figure rises to some 7,200 m3. That is 12 % more. That translates into fuel and manpower savings, and is better for the environment.

THE LAYHER LIGHTWEIGHT PHILOSOPHY

THE LAYHER LIGHTWEIGHT PHILOSOPHY

OUR OVERRIDING PRIORITY IS OUR CUSTOMERS’ SUCCESS

To make scaffolding even more economical and even safer, Layher development engineers are constantly working on ingenious new developments. Our focus here is on the influencing factors for assembly performance, such as weight, shape and the number of components.

To achieve this, we constantly search for new materials and new production processes. Just a few additional components also continuously provide our customers with new fields of business, since the utilization of their material stocks is also a crucial economic factor. Thanks to uniform system dimensions and appropriate combination approvals, all our innovations are designed to be interchangeable with existing components of the Layher product portfolio – including our earlier product generations. This ensures investment security. The strengths of our integrated system.

THE RESULT: LAYHER LIGHTWEIGHT – THE NEXT DIMENSION IN SCAFFOLDING

THE RESULT: LAYHER LIGHTWEIGHT – THE NEXT DIMENSION IN SCAFFOLDING

Assembly, dismantling and transport make up 80 % of scaffolding service costs. Studies have clearly shown that by reducing component weight, our customers can considerably enhance both their assembly and dismantling performances and use their transport capacities more efficiently. This is where our new Layher Lightweight philosophy comes to the fore.

By using higherstrength steel grades, new production processes and design improvements, we have succeeded in minimising the weight of the basic components of our SpeedyScaf and Allround Scaffolding systems – without reducing their high load capacities.

Assembly speed can be increased up to 10%, transport capacity up to 12%. As part of our integrated system, the lightweight products can also be combined with our previous product versions. Combination approvals are of course available.
