Layher UK has launched its ground-breaking new beam after unveiling the cutting-edge product at its jam-packed solutions open day.

Layher the world’s largest system scaffolding manufacturer launched its latest beam innovation to the UK market on Wednesday (2 November).

The new TwixBeam launch that headlined the event came as Layher showcased its latest developments at its biannual Solutions Open Day held at Layher UK’s Headquarters in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

More than 200 invited guests consisting of industry leaders, customers, clients and Layher Germany shareholders including joint Directors, Georg Layher & Carolin Langer attended the launch event.

Those attending were wooed and impressed by the dramatic entrance of the new beam as it was slowly lowered from the roof wrapped in a bespoke chocolate bar wrapper ready for unveiling.

The new two-piece multifunctional beam which has been aptly named after the well-known chocolate bar is made entirely from high-grade aluminium and produced at the world-famous Layher Eibensbach factory near Stuttgart in Germany.

TwixBeam is a low weight easy to dismantle and incredibly strong beam that effortlessly integrates into the Layher Allround System.

Users of the scaffolding system will also benefit from its versatility as it works perfectly in tandem with the highly successful Flexbeam that launched in 2018.

Weighing just 12kg/m the new smart multifunctional beam will be available in an array of lengths from 0.8m to an impressive 6.6m.

The TwixBeam will have many uses for specialist scaffolding contractors including conventional scaffolding, industrial scaffolding/boiler scaffolds and shoring in combination with TG60.

Speaking about the event and the new TwixBeam, Sean Pike Layher UK’s Managing Director said: “We were, as always humbled by the huge attendance and most grateful to all who came for giving up their time to spend with us.  

This year, the attendance has grown significantly, and we were delighted to welcome many new faces and celebrate with them many examples of their work with our products, as well as taking the opportunity to highlight our hints, tips and solutions as well as launch our new Twixbeam.  

The interest on the day in the Twixbeam was one of the biggest responses we have ever had to a new product launch, topped only by receiving our first order for it on the day, with several other enquiries quickly following”.
