Layher scaffolding makes A grade
By Sarah Ann McCay06 May 2014
German scaffolding manufacturer Layher is providing scaffolding and shoring support for the construction of an A-frame pylon for a cable-stayed bridge in Germany.
Allround scaffolding and Allround TG 60 shoring frames are being used to complete work on the cable-stayed bridge being built over a railway line in Raunheim, Hesse.
To allow the 55 m high pylon to be built safely, shoring was used to disperse high loads in the area of a binding beam 36 m up. Birdcage scaffolding was also used to provide work platforms and a stairway tower to the A-frame pylon.
The modular scaffolding system provided quick assembly as well as unlimited applications for construction company Wolff & Müller during the project. The prefabricated TG 60 shoring frames were also used.
Bilfinger Schalungsbau was responsible for formwork and scaffolding as well as for planning and material supplies, working in co-operation with Layher’s technical office. Postweiler was brought in as the scaffolding construction company.
