This was bauma 2022 - Scafom-rux at the world's largest trade fair

Munich, 24 October, 9:00 a.m.: Only a few minutes until the first bauma visitors walk through the huge halls of Messe München. The Scafom-rux team gathers for a last meeting in the meeting room on the second floor of our trade fair stand. The schedule and last questions are discussed one last time. In the background, the announcement with the countdown to the opening of the fair sounds though the trade fair halls in regular intervals. 10 minutes to go. 5 minutes to go. A final joint walk-through of the trade fair stand concludes the last preparations. Everything is in place - we're ready to go.


Only a few minutes left until the start of bauma 2022 - the Scafom-rux team prepares for the coming trade fair week


If you are one of those who have ever exhibited at a large trade fair, you probably know that there’s always a bit of nervousness withing the team just before the first visitors enter the exhibition halls. Although we can call ourselves old hands at bauma by now, it's no different for us. After all, several months of planning and organisation went into this week at the world's largest trade fair. A week before the doors of bauma opened, our stand in Hall B3 was already bustling with activity. Our team from Hagen, 600 km from Munich, arrived a few days earlier to lend the stand builders a hand and make final preparations for the start of the fair on Monday.


All set for the start of bauma 2022: this year's Scafom-rux stand in Hall B3.


Scafom-rux team members from Spain, Latin America, France, Singapore, the Netherlands, Sweden and Poland also travelled to Munich to attend the industry event of the year. The fact that bauma is not an exclusively German but an international gathering of the construction industry is also shown by the fact that around 50 percent of this year’s visitors came from abroad.


Here we go! Start of bauma 2022

9:30 a.m., the starting signal is given for bauma 2022. Over 495,000 visitors from more than 200 countries will walk through the exhibition halls over the next seven days.

Hall B3 also quickly fills up with visitors. Once at stand 226, the first product that catches the eye is the new XGR1 expandable guardrail. Right next to it, our SUPER RS modular facade scaffolding, the RINGSCAFF Sky suspended scaffolding system and the brand new RINGSCAFF stair tower.

You can see a few visual impressions of the trade fair week here:

The first trade fair visitors arrive at stand 226.

After a long dry spell of events, the anticipation for this year's bauma was particularly great. This was noticeable not only in the fantastic atmosphere within the team, but also in the personal conversations with visitors from a wide range of sectors in the construction industry.

Let's face it: good food also wins hearts. That's why our service team provides our visitors with delicious tapas, pretzels, various Bavarian dishes and of course the secret star of every Scafom-rux bauma appearance: fresh German waffles with cream and hot cherries.

Several times a day, visitors gathered in front of our stand to watch the live demonstration of our SUPER RS system.

The presentation of the brand new XGR1 expandable guardrail also aroused curiosity with its innovative folding mechanism.

Everyone was welcome to convince themselves of the whisper-quiet usage of our new RINGSCAFF stair tower.

No Scafom-rux product portfolio without our props! Of course, they also get a place on our trade fair stand.

Four new scaffolding highlights from the Scafom-rux product range

While walking through our exhibition stand it quickly becomes clear that the four innovations presented have one thing in common: they always complement each other.In the development of new scaffolding solutions, our technical team has made the multiple use and compatibility of our products a priority. In addition to the compatibility with Scafom-rux scaffolding solutions, this also includes other systems on the market.

Both the new RINGSCAFF stair tower, the RINGSCAFF Sky suspended scaffolding system and the SUPER RS system are mainly made of material that is already in the scaffolder’s stock. The XGR1 can also be used for common scaffolding systems. The idea behind it: scaffolding solutions thus become particularly sustainable for the user and reduce investment requirements.

SUPER RS: The SUPER RS modular facade scaffold reliably implements TRBS 2121 thanks to the advanced side protection - and without many new parts. The great advantage: SUPER RS can be easily extended with all scaffolding systems that have the standard tube connectors with 48.3 mm diameter.

RINGSCAFF SKY: Folding instead of climbing is the motto of the new RINGSCAFF Sky suspended scaffolding system. The swivel girders are simply folded out so that the rest of the assembly can always take place on a closed and solid working platform.

RINGSCAFF Stair tower: Comfort from assembly to use - the new RINGSCAFF stair tower stands out with its modular connections and screw-free assembly with existing material. The new impact sound linings also significantly reduce movement noise when walking on the stair tower.

XGR1 expandable guardrail: With its folding mechanism, XGR1 is one of the fastest ways to keep your stock material vital. Simply place it on the upper tube connector of a frame, release the handle, fold it out, latch it, and you're done.

An exciting week at bauma - we take stock

Sunday, 4:30 pm. The end of a successful week at bauma. The last trade fair visitors leave the halls of Messe München and our team starts to pack up the first things for the return journey the next day. After an eventful seven days, a little melancholy is mixed in with the exhaustion that is gradually setting in. The good talks with customers, even beyond business, and the great teamwork are what make up our understanding of a truly successful trade fair appearance.

The positive response to the scaffolding innovations we presented and the constructive customer feedback also make us look back on bauma 2022 happily. So, here's to the next bauma in 2025!



And for all those who can't wait for the next event highlight, we have good news! The scaffolding forum at our premises in Hagen is already being planned. All details will of course be announced in good time.
