Layher’s Allround Lightweight modular scaffolding system features increased load-bearing capacity, lighter components and an AUtoLock function for wedge-head connectors.
Layher claims that Allround Lightweight can be assembled 10% quicker than other scaffold systems and transport is 12% more efficient.
Layher’s marketing director Franz Greisinger said: "Since assembly, dismantling and transport still account for 80% of the costs for scaffolding construction, three factors are critically important: design, functionality and component weight."
"Studies have clearly shown that a significant reduction in assembly and dismantling time can be achieved by cutting back on component weight."
To make Allround Lightweight as light as possible, Layher used high-tensile steel to create thinner walls, reducing the wall thickness from 3.2mm to 2.8mm.
A company spokesman said: "Depending on the length of the components, scaffolding erectors have up to 14% less weight to handle when transporting components by truck to the construction site and in scaffolding assembly itself.
"The wall thickness has been reduced in Allround 0-ledgers LW as well, saving up to 1.6kg while increasing bending stress capacity by 24%."
