For work such as sandblasting or asbestos removal on a ship, Layher’s Protect System is ideal. Layher;s Protect Systems let you build a solid wall around your scaffold structure. It reduces and, in many cases, eliminates the need for shrink-wrap and its constant maintenance. The Protect System comes in a variety of components, including solid wall panels, corner cassettes, translucent panels, and doors and is fully reusable and long lasting.
No matter what your shipbuilding project requires, you can choose confidently from Layher’s wide-range of parts and accessories. They are made of the highest quality selected from materials and manufactured with precision using steady quality controls. Our products are known for their stability, meaning they have a tremendously high-load bearing capacity designed to be used frequently. Alternatively, they can be used as a sub-structure as well.
Whether the work is occurring in the shipyard or offshore, Layher’s products result from years of research, superior design, and hands-on experience uniting to deliver an unparalleled product.
The development process is guided by how the product will be used. Our engineers begin with an initial design that accounts for current standards and calculation methods. Based on that, prototypes are created and tested using in-house devices in addition to selected customer sites. When the tests are successful and meet Layher standards, the prototypes are put into production.
From Cassette Roof to Keder XL, Layher’s scaffolding products are durable and remain compliant with all applicable international standards. They are also entirely combinable with each other.
All of Layher’s scaffolding is the most lightweight in the industry. Using new materials, new production processes, and design improvements makes our systems lighter, faster, and economical.
