As already suggested by the presentation of our interior handrail support at this year’s bauma trade fair in April 2010, the new product has proven to be successful in practice:
“The new inner guard rail bracing from MJ-Gerüst really makes work easier. It’s economical and practical, just what scaffolding companies need,” says Thomas Au, Managing Director of Au Gerüstbau GmbH in Nuremberg.
The long-established Au company, in business for 30 years, was facing the challenge of an energy-efficient building renovation; this involved heat insulation and wider spacing between walls, and the company was looking for the best solutions to secure the inside of the scaffolding against collapse.
In addition to the UNI 70 vertical frames with four tilt pins ordered from MJ-Gerüst, they needed to find a way of using the existing standard vertical frame. “MJ’s new development turned out to be very convenient for me. Simple to use and quick to install,” says Thomas Au in a recent conversation.
Compatible and user-friendly
“The new Interior Handrail Support provides us with a fast, time-saving, flexible and cost-effective way to assemble inner guard rails. Without any additional screws or measurements, it allows the existing material to be used even more efficiently and economically. All in all, the simple use and quick installation make this innovation a valuable addition to the scaffolding industry,” reports Au with visible enthusiasm.
Currently, several hundred interior handrail supports are successfully being used as part of a renovation project in a Nuremberg housing development.
