Doka to showcase cost-effective formwork solutions at Big 5

DOKA Dokaflex 15 on ME sitesDokaflex 15 is in use on many sites across the region. (Image source: Doka)Dokaflex 15 is the newest cost-effective Doka solution for affordable housing construction and will be on show at this year's Big 5

 

Compared to traditional formwork, Dokaflex 15 offers a major reduction in the price of panel and slab formwork systems and speeds up construction workflows, especially since the system can be assembled by semi-skilled labourers.

Using Dokaflex 15, Doka says that contractors can expect to cut their assembly time, material weight and singular components in half. The unique features allow for more reuses, faster forming times, and minimal onsite adjustments. Dokaflex 15 boasts optimised lifespan and maximum cost savings when used for up to 25cm thick slabs.

Load-bearing Staxo 100 is extremely flexible for irregular layouts, has high abistability and rugged load capacity of more than 100kN per leg. It can safely handle transfer slabs, provide stability for shoring (including large shoring heights), and be used for applications in the industrial and petrochemical sectors.

The system features integrated access ladders, gapless assembly decks with planking units inside the towers and between frames, integrated connectors and logical colour-coded assembly.

By listening to and acting upon proactive feedback from its customers, Doka facilities in the Middle East are offering the exclusive and cost effective Ready-to-Use (RTU) preassembly service.

RTU simply means that Doka plans, designs and expertly custom builds the formwork units for specific jobsite requirements. Then, instead of delivering loose material that must be assembled by a contractors site-crew onsite, Doka send trucks prescheduled or ‘Just-in-Time’ with the pre-assembled formwork units, ready to start concrete pouring.

Brand new for clients in the Middle East, Dokadek 30 is a beamless handset system for speed and safety onsite. Its lightweight steel construction with powder-coated frames and proven Xlife sheet with built in plywood, make it excel in safety, ease of handling and high-speed for onsite use.

Spacious three sqm panels are ideally sized for forming large areas fast, plus greatly reduce the number of separate parts that need to be shifted.

Results using Dokadek are that contractors can make their entire forming operation quicker, also due to the fact that no crane is needed during setup. With the suspension clamp, infill zones can be formed quickly as Dokadek 30 merges seamlessly with the adaptable floor-slab system Dokaflex.

Safety - a topic of utmost importance - is defined in the workflow as Dokadek 30 is deployed from the floor level and erected from below with no need for anyone to step onto the slab formwork itself. For the best end result, the Xlife sheet offers immaculate concreting results for many re-use cycles.
