Product Innovation - TwixBeam

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.


Layher’s new low weight, high strength, multifunctional solution

More beam, more possibilities

TwixBeam’s high strength, ease of installation and dismantling, and full compatibility with Layher Allround bring significant advantages to scaffolding project efficiency.

Its low strength-to-weight ratio accounts for a high level of variability and design flexibility. As a multifunctional solution it is suitable for fixing, stabilising and bridging in all types of scaffold construction – features contributing in the field for the first time in the UK where bridging, gantries and hanging solutions need safe, efficient erection and dismantling.

TwixBeam extends still further the ability of Layher Allround to meet virtually any scaffolding and access requirement, and is the result of our own collaborative research and development programme in conjunction with invaluable customer feedback.

Strength in numbers…
