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.
