Aluminium Allround Droppy Scaffolding
Alphasafe Scaffolding used Layher Allround Aluminium Scaffolding for this scaffold in Clarence Street, Sydney Australia. Because of neighbouring properties and a laneway below, the builder required access via the rooftop, hence the requirement for a drop scaffold.
“Using Layher’s Allround Aluminium for the drop scaffold made things very easy for the scaffolders (so light!), completing the 11m long, 7m drop with ease,” said Mike Haslam of Alphasafe.
If this scaffold was built of steel instead of aluminium Allround it would weigh 73% more. Layher Allround Aluminium is made from 48.3mm tube (same as steel) but with a 4mm wall thickness.
Alpahasafe used Layher glass fibre reinforced plastic Fipro decks on the lower lift to reduce weight further.
Thank you to Mike Haslam, Alphasafe Manager for this photo.
