Automatic climbing formwork SKE plus

The crane-independent climbing formwork for structures of any shape and height

With its modular design, SKE offers an efficient solution for any type of structure and any requirement. The fully hydraulic equipment supports the construction workflow by allowing for fast and safe repositioning processes.


for a wide spectrum of use 

  • as a highly efficient system-based 'construction kit', it can be adapted to any shape of layout and any structure height
  • the freely plannable parallel climbing units also make the system suitable for varying wall inclinations and wall-returns
  • the practical standard solutions provide ample workspace on shaft formwork units

Rapid working
coupled with high safety 

  • fast, weather-shielded working made possible by the large all-round workspace
  • several parallel climbing units can be repositioned quickly at the same time, by radio remote-controlled 'pushbutton' climbing
  • integrated platforms, stair towers and ladders provide complete safety during working operations and for up-and-down access

Highly cost-efficient
for any structure 

  • saves on craneage, as payloads can also be raised along with the platforms when these are 'climbed'
  • craneless climbing made possible at any time, by all-hydraulic repositioning right from the very first casting step
  • optimised construction workflows achieved by flexible cycling of the units for repositioning


SKE50 plus

  • for highrise cores and building facades
  • with 5 t lifting capacity per parallel lifting unit

SKE100 plus

  • for increased requirements such as greater impacts, extra working platforms or live loads
  • with 10 t lifting capacity per parallel lifting unit

Cost-effective thanks to simple options for combining

SKE50 plus and SKE100 plus climbing units in all their design variants were ideally combined in this project. As a result the equipment was perfectly utilised and the project solution implemented cost-effectively.

Design variants of SKE plus

(1) with travelling unit – more efficient and comfortable installation of reinforcement thanks to wall formwork that can be rolled back by 1 m

(2) with rising working platforms – separation of forming and reinforcing operations by working on several levels at once leads to shorter cycle time

(3) with shaft system – a centrally positioned climbing drive allows for easy forming and stripping in case of small-celled shaft groups

(4) with mast system – mast with load-bearing capacity and suspended formwork make for generous working space, especially with shafts

(5) as platform system – for floor and wall cast in one pour in case of small-scale structures

Safety and logistics specifically adapted to the project

The following project requirements demanded special consideration in the Tour CMA project in Marseille:

  • ingenious safety concept
  • automatic climbing formwork for concrete placing booms
  • an easy way of lifting in prefabricated reinforcing cages
  • built-in construction site container

Safe choice, right system

Automatic climbing formwork SKE plus is definitely the 'safe' system choice. Its wide, fully enclosed working platforms, the well thought-out access paths and the gapless enclosure all make for a high level of safety at your site. Up to 20 automatic climbers can be raised from one casting section to the next by a single hydraulic unit.
