- Low weight, easy handling
- Versatile aluminium beam.
The aluminium TwixBeam from Layher
The high-strength, multipurpose aluminium TwixBeam from Layher – consisting of two bolted aluminium U-sections with a height of 200mm – has a wide range of possible uses, for wide-span work platforms, support beams, suspended scaffolding or projecting structures. The TwixBeam is available in lengths from 0.80 m to 6.60 m. The beam is characterised by high load-bearing capacity yet low weight.
There are many matching expansion parts available for the aluminium TwixBeam: The swivelling spindle is inserted into the 52 mm-wide intermediate area of the beam and pinned in place. It can be used as a head jack or base plate.
Standard or suspended structures can be built by passing through an Allround standard or the swivelling spindle. The spindle strut (patent pending) permits stiffening or bracing of various structures – it can transmit tensile and compressive forces. Beam connector and insertion beam complete the system for adaptability to all site conditions and contours.
Aluminium as the material ensures easier assembly and dismantling of the beam. The bolted structure permits dismantling of the beam for different applications while ensuring that the material retains its maximum loading capacities and is not weakened by welding.
