SUSTAINABILITY

SUSTAINABILITY

Layher is the natural choice.
Quite literally.

Sustainability is an integral part of the Layher business philosophy. We engineer our processes for the efficient use of materials and the conservation of resources. And we design our buildings to be eco-friendly, with green roofs and photovoltaic panels. What’s more, by consolidating all manufacturing of Layher products at our Gueglingen sites, there is no need for goods transport, greatly reducing our carbon footprint.

In fact, sustainability is embedded throughout the entire Layher organisation, and backed by a dedicated energy management team. The basis for all related activities is DIN EN ISO 50001. This standard defines requirements in terms of energy management and consumption.

It applies to the following key areas:

  • PRODUCTS
  • INITIATIVES
  • PROCESSES
Sustainability

Economic and ecological sustainability is central to the Layher business model. And there is a focus on our responsibilities towards employees, customers and society as a whole.

Product sustainability

SUSTAINABILITY

Integrated System
  • New components can be combined and used with existing inventory.
  • Durable products that have a long service life.
  • Certification applies to multiple system generations.
Layher Lightweight
  • The use of high-tensile steel has enabled us to cut the weight of scaffolding components to be transported by up to 15%.
  • This means each truck can carry more parts, leading to fewer trips and lower carbon emissions.
Solution-driven Products
  • Reusable Layher Protective Systems for enclosures and protection of construction sites.
  • No need for use and subsequent disposal of tarpaulin.
Sustainability through initiatives

  • Replacement of conventional lighting with LED systems and regular IT system upgrades to save electricity
Vehicle Fleet
  • Diesel forklift trucks are to be replaced by electric vehicles.
Renewables and Energy Efficiency
  • Photovoltaic panels and green roofs are standard for new buildings.

Can I rent scaffolding materials for peak project loads or smaller projects?2022-03-22T16:13:33-05:00

Layher’s priority is to supply scaffolding 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, a large portion of your payments is applied as equity. This allows you to take ownership of the scaffolding materials after a set period of time.

What Types of Scaffolding Can be Rented?2022-03-16T15:26:13-05:00

Since Layher offers so many types of scaffolding rental opportunities for companies in various industries, you can be assured of finding exactly what you need. Whether you are wanting interior scaffolding rental or exterior scaffolding rental, we have you covered. In fact, you can rent scaffolding ranging from smaller rolling scaffolding that is very mobile and easy to use to larger two-story and much higher scaffolding that can be used when working on buildings, ships, or within large manufacturing plants. Instead of looking elsewhere and hoping you rent scaffolding that will be easy to use and meet all required safety standards, get it from Layher, and trust you’re getting what you need.

How Much Does it Cost to Rent Scaffolding Near Me?2022-03-16T15:27:03-05:00

While you may think the cost of renting scaffolding will bust your company’s budget, that is not the case if you choose to work with us here at Layher. Along with having a large selection of interior, exterior, and mobile scaffolding, we also offer Rent-to-Own programs for our customers. Offering very competitive rates, we at Layher also work with you should you decide to purchase your scaffolding after your rental or lease term expires. This has numerous advantages, one being that most of your previous payments can be applied as equity. As a result, you will be able to own your scaffolding much faster than you anticipated.

Is Rental Scaffolding Truly High-Quality?2022-03-16T15:27:45-05:00

Here at Layher, any scaffolding that is rented or leased by our customers offers the same high-quality and technological innovation as that which is purchased through direct sales. In fact, we at Layher are committed to producing the highest-quality and most durable scaffolding in use today. By investing heavily in the latest research and development technology and methods, we have obtained a reputation within the scaffolding industry as being the gold standard.

Can I Erect and Disassemble Rental Scaffolding Easily?2022-03-16T15:28:27-05:00

Absolutely. When you choose to rent or lease scaffolding from Layher, we ensure you are getting scaffolding that will meet your company’s needs and also be very easy to work with from start to finish. A great example of this is our SpeedyScaf Scaffolding, which adheres to OSHA and other safety codes. Also, it is very easy to erect and disassemble, since it has a bolt-free assembly with only five basic elements and very few manual operations.

Since having scaffolding on your job that can be counted on for its safety and reliability is crucial to your bottom line, take advantage of our rental and lease options here at Layher. By talking to us about your needs and what you can afford, we can come up with the perfect solution.
