Dam formwork

Crane-lift­ed climbing formwork for one-sid­ed ap­pli­ca­tions

Dam formwork is used for forming one-sid­ed con­struc­tion pro­jects, such as dams, bar­rages, riv­er pow­er sta­tions or py­lons with­out formwork ties. The climbing tow­er will trans­fer all pour­ing loads in­to the pre­vi­ous pour­ing sec­tion. Dif­fer­ent sys­tem variants D12, D15, D22 and D35 fa­cil­i­tate eco­nom­ic adap­ta­tion to vari­ous pro­ject-spe­cif­ic block di­men­sions.


Rapid con­struc­tion progress

due to op­ti­mised op­er­at­ing cy­cles 

  • Ef­fi­cient forming from the start by us­ing the same formwork for start­ing blocks and reg­u­lar cy­cles
  • Short­er pe­ri­ods of crane com­mit­ment due to rapid lift­ing of climbing tow­er and formwork as one unit
  • Quick and pre­cise formwork in­s­tal­la­tion in ev­ery di­rec­tion due to easy ad­just­ment op­tions

Pro­ject-spe­cif­ic so­lu­tions

due to dif­fer­ent sys­tem variants 

  • Eco­nom­ic stan­dard so­lu­tions for block heights up to 5.00 m due to stat­i­cal­ly op­ti­mised climbing towers
  • Choice of formwork due to ran­dom com­bi­na­tions with framed, wall or steel frame­work
  • Ide­al for use in re­in­forced struc­tures as a re­sult of de­sign variants with formwork that can be rolled back
  • Suit­able for al­ter­ing wall in­cli­na­tions in the course of con­struc­tion due to adapt­able climbing tow­er and lim­it­less op­tions for formwork

Safe work­ing con­di­tions

in all stages of the job 

  • Se­cure at­tach­ment to struc­ture due to heavy du­ty sus­pen­sion points
  • Safe work­ing con­di­tions re­sult­ing from closed and gener­ous­ly di­men­sioned work­ing plat­forms up to 2.80 m wide
  • Safe climbing and de­s­cend­ing be­tween plat­forms due to lad­der sys­tem that can be in­te­grat­ed

A selection of different system options D12, D15, D22 and D35 renders Doka Dam formwork an economic standard solution for block heights up to 5.00 m.
