Advancing Safety and Efficiency in High Rise constructions

Doka was selected as a shoring and safety system supplier because of its protection screen, which offers solid panels, increasing the safety of the superstructure. Moreover Doka's Xbright protections screen solution ensures full safety around the entire perimeter of structure to ensure worker safety.

With varying floor heights between 15' to 27', a combination of SuperDek slab formwork and Staxo shoring towers was used to maximize productivity and ensure seamless transitions. The full-area enclosure around the perimeter of the building enables all work to be carried out in complete safety, protected from all weather conditions. A loading platform can be integrated into the protection screen for straightforward, safe repositioning of slab formwork, tools and other materials Doka's Super Props standing tall in reshore.
