Allround Pedestrian Bridge: An Innovative Concept
Spokesperson:The Allround bridging systems is the ideal complement to Layher Allround equipment with just a few additional components, the load-bearing capacity of the proven Allround systems can be increased enough to create for example, wide-span footbridges or support structure for heavy loads.

The Allround Bridging system is a modular truss system that can be adapted to the respective application. The posts of the Allround Bridging Systems have wedge heads welded to the side, to which standards of the Allround equipment can be fastened. As a result, the Allround Bridging Systems can be combined with Allround equipment, offering a wide range of possible uses. A complete integration into an Allround Scaffolding structure (e.g. to transfer high loads or for bridging of wide spans) is also possible. The individual components of the Layher Allround Bridging System are connected in a timesaving way using bolts of diameter 30 mm. The connection to the Allround equipment is made using the proven Allround wedge head connection.
A standard Layher bridge structure mainly comprises two loads transferring Allround Bridging Systems, which are arranged parallel to one another at a defined distance, depending on the required bridge width. A stable bridge supporting structure is obtained with an internal Allround scaffolding structure fastened between the two Allround Bridging Systems, the stiffening in the transverse direction and hence the stabilization of the Allround Bridging Systems is achieved with horizontally arranged bracing in the Allround structure. The bridge decking and the guard rails are fastened to the internal Allround scaffolding structure. The entire bridge structure – both bridging units in combination with internal Allround Scaffolding – is finally supported at the bridge ends. The support can for
With the new development “Allround bridging system” Layher offers the optimal solution for the construction of more than a hundred metres long pedestrian crossing with free spanned bridge elements of 31 metres. Innovative supplementary component: even unsupported bridging structures with a span of up to 30 metres.
Application of Allround Bridging Systems
When a footbridge is built, the Allround bridging systems is connected to Allround standards using the wedge-heads provided on the sides of post. Depends on the application, either event decks or steel decks can be used. These support elements permit pre-assembly on the ground and subsequent insertion by crane, which is a major advantage when spanning bridge across roads.
