Layher has been the driving force behind game-changing innovation in scaffolding for more than 70 years. In 1965, Layher SpeedyScaf® revolutionised the industry; and 1974 saw the launch of Layher Allround Scaffolding®, a modular product portfolio that took the world market by storm. And the unique Allround connector swept away conventional scaffolding technology.


But the time is now ripe for a new dimension in scaffolding: Layher Lightweight. With a mission to lighten the load. Layher engineers have succeeded in developing special high-tensile steel – a steel that significantly lowers the weight of components. Despite reduced wall thickness and lower weight, these new Layher products deliver higher load-bearing capacity than traditional modular systems. The new connector creates considerably stronger transitions at joins in standards and the innovative ledger AutoLock means faster scaffolding erection and improved safety.
