Allround Bridging System adds flexibility and economy
By Maria Hadlow14 June 2010
The newly developed Allround Bridging System from Wilhelm Layher GmbH & Co is designed to increase in the load-bearing capacity of its Allround scaffold structures and allow Allround equipment to be used for a wider range of applications.
For bridging wide spans or for supporting heavy loads, project-specific and, therefore, expensive one-off structures are often needed. With the innovative Allround bridging system from Layher scaffolding erectors can offer this to their customers with only a few additional parts. The advantages are said to be quick and easy assembly, flexible and repeated use, and high load-bearing capacity.
The new development is a modular truss system, which is fully compatible with Allround equipment. The system expansion comprises a few additional parts that further increase the load-bearing capacity of the system. Simple pin connections ensure quick and easy assembly of the individual components, including a truss post, a truss ledger and a length-adjustable diagonal rod. This means that supports for heavy loads or wide-span pedestrian bridges of up to around 30 m freely spanned can be constructed. Cladding using the Protect System, and roof covering for the bridges, are also available. The modular design allows the bridging system to be individually adapted to a variety of situations and is more economical than one-off products.
The new product can be used for a wide range of applications, for example to build wide-span temporary roofs or bridging structures; supporting scaffolding, podiums or roof structures.
