Why Upright Scaffolding choose Layher scaffolding products?

Upright Scaffolding is a company that has been in the scaffolding business since 1949. Many scaffolding products come and go, but one brand always rises to the top: Layher. Why do we choose to use Layher scaffold products?

Here are just a few reasons:


One of the main reasons Upright Scaffolding choose Layher systems is productivity.

Increased productivity for us means being able to put up scaffolding faster and with fewer people. We can pass this benefit to our Upright customers and clients as a cost-effective solution for their scaffolding needs.

Weight saving

Layher makes a considerable effort to reduce the weight of its scaffolding systems. In the Layher’s Allround Lightweight (steel) scaffolding system, weight savings can be greater than 40% compared to alternative systems in the market.

Saving weight has multiple benefits. The lighter the scaffolding, the easier and faster it is to erect and dismantle. Lighter scaffolding also reduces manual handling risks for our employees.

Less weight on a project also means that we can use smaller vehicles with lower emissions – another way Layher helps us reduce our carbon footprint, which is a significant factor in Upright Scaffoldings decision modelling and value system.

Reduced number of components

Through its commitment to R&D, Layher has reduced the number of components required to assemble scaffolding structures.

Examples include reductions in the number of decks, ledgers and braces.

Fewer components equal more simple structures resulting in faster erection and dismantling time.

Fewer components for our Upright clients means that scaffolding can be erected faster with fewer people.

In addition, because there are fewer components, there is a reduced risk of lost or damaged parts – which means that projects can stay on schedule.

Manufacturing tolerances 

Layher products are manufactured to very tight tolerances. Consequently, Layher product users do not suffer from delays associated with the poor fit of components – or defective components.

Layher takes great pride in manufacturing to extremely high-quality standards, central to the group’s philosophy.

Pushing boundaries

Layher sets the standard for scaffolding innovation and excellence. In an increasingly quality and cost-conscious market, they drive to develop and advance scaffolding technology, ensuring they offer the most competitive product and service portfolio available today.

Layher brings international experience and technical expertise to bear on the unique challenges facing New Zealand building and construction professionals.
