Product Innovation - FlexBeam

Layher’s commitment to ongoing product innovation has underpinned the company’s success for almost 80 years. From the smallest device to the introduction of a completely reworked scaffolding system, the new products that we bring to market are the result of extensive R&D and are designed to offer optimised performance, safety and efficiency … with many a direct response to feedback from our customers.


Design flexibility for suspended, cantilevered and curved structures

The Layher Aluminium FlexBeam is purpose-designed for use with surface scaffolds – both suspended and upright – and represents an alternative to lattice beam structures.

FlexBeam provides an approximately 2.5 times higher bending load capacity, and up to seven times higher shear load capacity, than with e.g. the Steel Lattice Beam 450. The beam’s low height, U-shaped profile allows direct suspension of system decks and is fully compatible with the Layher Allround scaffold system.

One of the key applications simplified by FlexBeam is the installation on curved structures, for example such as bridges, while the product is readily applicable to a variety of suspended designs, together with cantilevered and street gantry applications.
