A formwork set including the accessories weighs around 72 kg/m2. The admissible load bearing capacity according to DIN EN 18202 for fresh concrete pressure is of 100 kN/m².

Panel widths are 750, 900,1050 and 1200 mm. whereas the heights are 3300, 3000, 2700, 1800, 1500 and 1200 mm. The panel corners are solid steel piece which gives extra stiffness and durability while also delivering strong inserts for levering and lifting holes for handling. The solid corner increases the panel life.

SBS 80 is a steel frame formwork system composed of high strength rectangular tube profiles, which can be easily combined with column panel locks. The steel frame profiles are designed to be able to connect at any point with the other panel. Panel facing is the plastic-coated Birch Plywood namely WISA-Form Elephant (delivered by UPM), providing higher durability and longer life.

Jacking Systems

Dscaff signs exclusive agency agreement with Jacking Systems Ltd ( Australia )

Jacking Systems Ltd have developed a product which offers the biggest advance in self climbing formwork available today. Self-climbing formwork is commonly used to form the concrete lift cores on all high-rise buildings. The lift core is at the heart of every high-rise structure and is responsible for a significant portion of the construction budget. This allows Dscaff to become a major player in this USD 30 Billion Industry in Asia.

The agency agreement is exclusive for Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore, and covers projects through South East Asia.

The Power Climb System: (PCS) is predominantly used to form lift cores and vertical shafts both above and below ground and can be installed immediately after the first pour. The system climbs as a complete unit using 30t capacity electrically powered jacks.

Some the major benefits include:

  • Computer controlled processor with integrated laser plumbing and jack monitoring during lifting allowing a high level of control and accuracy.
  • Climbs to a tolerance of 2 mm.
  • Can climb both up and down to allow easy access where required.
  • Unlimited number of jacks can be controlled by a single control station allowing for multiple cores to be formed together.
  • Fast lifting cycle.
  • Wide prefabricated upper and lower decks creating a clear and clean working space and ample storage area.
  • Internal stretcher access and internal ingress and egress.
  • The fully enclosed unit offers a high level of safety.
