The allround scaffolding offers unsurpassed versatility to be use in construction sites, chemical industry, power plants, aircraft, shipyards, event sector, theatres and arenas. Allround scaffolding uses a simple, unique and bolt free connection technology. Sliding the wedge head over the rosette and inserting the wedge into the opening immediately secures the component. There is still sufficient play to secure the other end of the ledger. A hammer blow to the wedge transforms the loose connection into a superbly strong structurally rigid one. The face of the wedge head is now precisely positioned against the standard. Connections in quick to assesmble and spanner fewer scaffolding systems make a unique combination: providing structural strength immediately on assembly and subsequent ultimate force transmission while offering a choice of automatically right – angled or splayed connections with universal safety right from the start.
The shifting of scaffolding material up to working height is to be done with tested rope and pulley, and care to be taken that no one is in the vicinity of the working area.

The advantage lies in the speed with which not only the right angle can be automatically obtained with the system, but also variable angles can be achieved if required. This is done by fitting the ledgers in rosettes each with four holes at right angles, with four further larger holes (usually used for diagonal braces) being used to facilitate variable angles. This means that the erectors can also make connections at any angle as dictated by the conditions on site. The Scaffolder can easily, thanks to the eight possible connections in every connector, make adaptions quickly and optimally for almost any application.

These advantages is ensuring the optimum conditions for effectively enclosing the circular and rectangular structure with safe and minimal time required to construct the scaffolding. Allround scaffolding was easily adapted to follow the contour shape of the structure without difficult to access. The erectors didn’t need to create complex tube structures, saw off tubes all the time, repeat measuring of connections or constantly align the upright elements. The wedge head provides an all in one simple yet stable connection, coupled with a logical assembly sequence and integral safety. Hot-dip galvanisation and certified quality assure allround scaffolding top-quality products are extremely long-lived.

Several work levels were required plus a lift going up 66 meters were required to be integrated into the scaffolding. The challenge set by this job was to follow as precisely as possible due to inclined angles. This was possible due to the extensive capability of parts Layher allround are able to offer.

Due to restriction of open space possibilities of access Aluminium deck with integrated ladder is only possibilities. Internal accesses can be built into the scaffolding with the access decks. These decks conform to the requirements of DIN EN 12811 and are available with a separate or an integrated access ladder for internal access.

The stability of a structure shall be checked both with and without the wind loads, as there may be reversal of the forces under wind besides a reduced factor of safety considered with the wind loads as per IS 875 (Part 3). Assembly, alteration and dismantling of the Layher allround scaffolding involves a risk of falls. Perform scaffolding assembly work in such a way that the risk of falls is avoided as far as possible and that the residual risk is minimised.

The top lift of the scaffold at the top of the structure called for Layher’s expertise. Following the increasingly safe scaffolding with proper access at all locations, Layher’s technical bureau designed a series of connected to the topmost existing structure. Allround standards which made them converge in tension-resistant form. The scaffolders then placed the structure on the highest point of the building using allround standards and applicable accessories.

Construction of scaffolding to make approach for all required location was a major challenge during the work due to unsymmetrical structure, but it is easy when will consider allround scaffolding systems.

Layher’s new lightweight scaffolding is result of a major, multi-year R&D project with as clearly defined objective: to make scaffolding easier, safe and above all more cost effective for customer.
