Slab formwork at its most evolved.


Dokadek 30 is a beam-less, hand-set formwork system designed as a lightweight strip galvanized and cathodic dip painted steel frame faced with a wood/plastic-composite sheet.

Icon Speed


Quick to put up quick to take down.

Fast forming of large areas thanks to 3 m² Dokadek panels

as there are far fewer parts to be shifted. This greatly speeds up the forming operations. The entire system has only three different components: panels, heads and props.

Dokadek formed on site

Fast formwork removal is a critical success factor

because this operation takes up around 33 % of the total forming time. With Dokadek 30, the panels are stripped out without any timeconsuming overhead work. The DekDrive then lets you shift up to 12 m² of Dokadek 30 at a time.

Minimal crane-time needed during formwork set-up

which means that work can move ahead rapidly, independently and without interruption. There are no unproductive downtimes spent waiting for the crane, as the equipment does not need to be lifted onto the floor-slab formwork. In other words, the crane is no longer a ‘choke-point’ during formwork set-up. It is only needed occasionally, to help with closing infill and intermediate zones.

Icon Safety


Productivity on safe ground.

Fast, safe erection sequence, working from floor-level

The rectangular shape of the Dokadek panels also makes it easy to form higher slabs from the safety of floor-level work: Simply hold the panels by the ergonomically shaped grip-holes, lift them and hook them into the Dokadek heads, then raise the free end with the Dokadek assembling tool.

Integral anti-liftout guard

The Dokadek heads have a built-in anti-liftout guard which prevents panels accidentally falling off and makes extra precautions (such as wind bracing) unnecessary. This saves time and money.

Icon Simplicity


Easy to explain, easy to use.

Short introductory training time

Because Dokadek 30 has so few separate parts, and such a straightforward erection sequence, even semi-skilled labourers can soon use it correctly. Right from the word ‘go’.

Infill zones

Tackling infill zones is easy

With the suspension clamp, infill zones can be formed quickly and easily, as Dokadek 30 merges here seamlessly with Dokaflex. In fact, Dokadek 30 combines perfectly with all other slab systems from Doka.

Erection sequence

Pre-defined erection sequence.

The clearly defined erection sequence prevents the crew from attempting dangerous improvisations, and ensures a consistently high safety level – even when semi-skilled labour is deployed. Because of the number of props and how they are arranged, with Dokadek 30 there is no need to dimension the system in advance. Without additional measures a slab thickness of up to 32 cm is possible.

Fewer parts per m² of slab formwork.

There are only two different sizes of panel, which simplifies logistics on the site and means there is no time wasted searching for the right parts. The forming operations themselves go much more smoothly, too.


Great concrete results,
time after time

thanks to the tried-and-tested Xlife sheet.

Xlife sheet

The innovative coating made of glass fibre reinforced plastic ensures even greater resistance to scratching and mechanical damage. This means positive impressions on the concrete and rework costs are cut even further.

  • Rework expenses cut even further
    due to fewer positive impressions on the concrete thanks to increased resistance to scratching and mechanical damage such as from vibrator
  • Lowest cost per use and fewer-form ply replacements
    thanks to even further increased lifespan
  • No unsightly staining
    on concrete as it is the case with phenol resin sheets
  • Easy, fast and non-destructive cleaning
    that can also be performed with a pressure washer

Final results

The final results are clear to see: a small number of joints, all of them neat and tidy as well as a uniform concrete finish.

One System, three working methods

How you use Dokadek 30 is up to you, depending on your requirements.

Method 1

  • Method 1

    Dokadek 30
    without drop-head

    Worker and Dokadek panel

    Step 1

    Fetch the Dokadek panel, hang it into place and raise the free end working in a team of two

    When the panels are hung into place, the Dokadek heads ensure that they engage safely and are firmly fixed. At the usual heights, the free ends of the panels are raised with the Dokadek assembling tool, while at greater heights the platform stairway 0.97m, the suspension tool or the DekLift 4.50m are used.

    The Doka floor prop Eurex is a rugged, tried-and-tested product. And with its high thread pitch, it can be backed off very easily at a later stage – even when it is under full load.

  • Method 1

    Step 3

    Formwork removal takes a short time with no strenuous overhead work, and from the safety of floor level

    With the formwork-removal procedure made possible by Dokadek 30, overall forming-times can be greatly reduced. This brings added productivity.

  • Method 1 Concremote

    Dokadek 30
    without drop-head, with Concremote

    Worker with Dokadek panel

    Step 1

    Fetch the Dokadek panel, hang it into place and raise the free end and fit the floor props

    When the panels are hung into place, the Dokadek heads ensure that they engage safely and are firmly fixed. At the usual heights, the free ends of the panels are raised with the Dokadek assembling tool, while at greater heights the DekLift 4.50m is used.

    For the ‘without drop-head with Concremote’ method, Dokadek 30 is erected in the same way as for Method 1. The Concremote slab sensor has to be placed on the surface of the fresh concrete after screeding.

  • Method 1 Concremote

    Step 2

    Earlier stripping based on reliable data, available in real-time with Concremote

    The digital, wireless Concremote sensors continuously measure temperature. Your concrete’s strength gain is then calculated in the secure Concremote web portal. The reliable quality data helps you to support your decisions in executing critical path activities (as stripping) at their earliest possible time.

    Step 3

    Optimise your construction project based on measured data

    The actual strength values optained in Step 2 can be used to determine the earliest possible time of formwork removal. Concremote not only helps you to save time, but also increases safety with having high level certainty in decision making, enhances concrete quality and reduces costs. Think construction processes forward to boost your productivity.

  • Method 2

    Step 1

    Formwork set-up
    Engage panel – raise free end – put up props

    In the ‘Dokadek 30 with drop-head’ method, too, the formwork is set up safely and easily, working from floor-level. The closure panels are then inserted from above, but because these are so narrow (only 15 cm wide) there is no need for any additional fall-hazard precautions.

  • Method 2

    Dokadek 30
    with drop-head

    Worker hammering on the red lowering wedge

    Step 2

    Formwork removal
    Reclaim equipment for re-use much sooner

    The Dokadek panels are lowered and removed quickly and safely, in two steps:

    1. Hammer on the red lowering wedge to quickly detach the panels from the concrete.
    2. Tilt down and remove the panels; take out the closure panels. In this way, all the stripped Dokadek panels are available ahead of time, ready to be used in the next casting section.

    Doka Eurex floor props

    Step 3

    Temporary reshoring
    Optimally supported – right to the end of the job

    The floor-slab stays safely shored with the Doka Eurex floor props until the required concrete strength has been reached.

Decision support:

You define the working method

The forming method chosen will depend on e.g.

  • the required cycle times
  • the stipulations of the structural designer
  • the weather during the shell-construction period
  • the concrete technology
  • etc.

Every construction task needs individualised solutions. The Doka Formwork Experts will be pleased to advise you.
