Five new products launched at Layher’s Partnership Open Day held in Hertfordshire.
LAYHER the world’s largest system scaffolding manufacturer officially launched a flurry of new products to the UK market on Thursday.
The new UK product announcements came as Layher UK showcased its latest developments at its biannual Partnership Open Day held at Layher UK’s Headquarters in Letchworth.
Over 190 invited guests consisting of its customers, clients, Layher Germany shareholders and members of the construction media came together for an informative day.
The revolutionary new beam has been designed for use with surface scaffolds that are either suspended or upright. Available in 3-7m lengths it is seven times stronger than a 450 steel beam and doesn’t normally require bracing, its German makers have boasted.
Sean Pike, Layher UK’s Managing Director who unveiled the new beam to the UK market, said the FlexBeam can be connected directly to its flagship Allround Scaffold System and emphasised among other solutions, it could be an ideal alternative to simplifying the installation of street-level scaffold gantries that we see in big cities today.
Sean Pike said: “The success that we have enjoyed worldwide over seven decades has always been based on a key consideration – a commitment to harnessing both inspiration and innovation to move the modular scaffolding and weather protection industry forward.”
And he made it quite clear that the company’s ongoing commitment to product development is evidence of its pioneering role in the industry.
“Developing new concepts and answering questions that have often come directly from our customer base has helped us to become the benchmark for our particular sector of the construction industry,” he added.
