Shift­ing de­vices for ta­bles

Fast, safe re­po­si­tion­ing with min­i­mal craneage re­quire­ments

With Doka shift­ing de­vices, slab-forming op­er­a­tions can be ac­com­plished even faster. By mak­ing the crane un­ne­ces­sary for both the hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal re­po­si­tion­ing op­er­a­tions, they sim­pli­fy and op­ti­mise the lo­gis­tics for the en­tire site, by do­ing away with un­pro­duc­tive (mean­ing cost­ly) wait­ing times. The craneage saved here is then avai­l­able for use else­where. This ac­cel­er­ates the en­tire site work­flow, sav­ing on labour costs and boost­ing the con­trac­tors' com­pet­i­tive­ness.


Fast con­struc­tion work­flows
with crane-in­de­pen­dent so­lu­tions 

  • site lo­gis­tics op­ti­mised by re­duc­ing the num­ber of cranes and the crane times
  • the self-climbing Table Lift­ing Sys­tem lets work pro­ceed com­plete­ly in­de­pen­dent­ly, with­out crane as­sis­tance, at any height

High safe­ty
pro­vid­ed by in­te­gral safe­ty fea­tures 

  • safe, er­go­nom­i­cal­ly con­ve­nient work­ing, as re­po­si­tion­ing can be per­formed from floor-lev­el us­ing the Doka shift­ing ap­pliances
  • work can cont­in­ue un­re­strict­ed, up to wind speeds as high as 72 km/h, when ta­bles are ver­ti­cal­ly re­po­si­tioned with no need for a crane
  • the site crew are pro­tect­ed at all times by the all-round fall-ar­rest bar­ri­ers on the Table Lift­ing Sys­tem TLS

Cost re­duc­tions
from speed­ed-up con­struc­tion pro­cess­es 

  • the ta­bles can be po­si­tioned quick­ly and eas­i­ly, in a few sim­ple steps
  • table ar­eas of up to 12.5 m² can be re­po­si­tioned by just one man work­ing on his own
  • crane­less ver­ti­cal re­po­si­tion­ing of tableforms up to the next floor in on­ly 20 se­conds with the Table Lift­ing Sys­tem TLS



DoKart plus

The new DoKart plus is a 'high-performer' whose innovative design perfectly suits it to the rough-and-tumble of everyday work on the site:

  • ergonomically comfortable, safe shifting of Doka tableforms by just one man
  • compact unit with huge manoeuvrability for fast, easy workflows
  • high load capacity of 1,950 kg
  • its big wheels, generous ground clearance and solid baseplate make it especially rugged and reliable

The DoKart plus is very user-friendly indeed, and provides fast and easy workflows:

  • its ability to move 90° sideways, and to rotate around its centreline, cuts the distances it needs to cover and makes it even easier and quicker to travel the tables
  • work is speeded up still further by the high lifting speed; the tableform is raised 8 cm every second, taking it immediately to the right height for its next time of use.

Doka shift­ing trol­ley with at­tach­able drive unit

  • for craneless horizontal repositioning of up to 12.5 m² of formwork, together with accessories, by only one man
  • With the Shifting trolley DF, Doka tableforms can be hydraulically lowered and travelled, swiftly and safely. The clamp-on Attachable drive unit DF allows Doka tableforms to be travelled with minimal effort.

Ver­ti­cal by crane

Tran­s­port fork DM 1.5t (ad­justable)

The Transport fork DM 1.5t (adjustable), with a carrying capacity of 1500 kg, is supplied to the site folded closed. The four different fork-width adjustments give the fork the ideal fit for any table format and usage situation. A latch-type anti-slide-off guard enables the jib to be moved in under the table without hindrance, and then provides a high level of safety while the table is being lifted.

Dokamatic lift­ing strap

The Dokamatic lifting strap 13.00m can be used for hoisting tableform superstructures and ready-to-use tables. The 13 m long strap is designed so that the crew can easily and safely fix it and detach it when working from ground level.

Load­ing platform

Using the Dokamatic lifting strap, the Dokamatic tables can be quickly lifted off the loading platform and up to the next level.

Ver­ti­cal with­out crane

Speeds up the con­struc­tion cy­cle

The Table Lifting System TLS saves precious crane time. This frees up the crane for other work, in turn speeding up the whole progress of construction. The TLS also helps to speed up work by making the site independent of the wind conditions. Table repositioning operations can continue unhindered even in windier conditions – and in great safety. The 'DoKart plus' makes it possible for one man to travel the tableforms to and from the TLS, quickly and easily. The interoperable shifting appliances allow efficient use of manpower, and fast construction progress.

Fast re­po­si­tion­ing, with no idle times

The Table Lifting System TLS makes possible a non-stop repositioning cycle which accelerates the entire construction sequence:

  • no time is lost waiting for the crane
  • repositioning can continue even in high winds of up to 72 km/h
  • efficient repositioning is possible at the push of a button in automatic operation mode

High safe­ty in ev­ery phase of the work

Proven site-hoist technology, with multiple safeguards, provides high safety during repositioning of the Doka tableforms:

  • TLS is installed on the structure by certified Doka Formwork Instructors
  • is firmly anchored to the structure
  • inward-opening landing-level safety gates and safety button on every storey
  • slip-proof, weathering-resistant platform decking for high stability

Table lift­ing sys­tem TLS – one sys­tem with three dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions

Ta­bles can be lift­ed from the first storey up­wards

The Table Lifting System TLS can also be stood on the ground, making it possible to start repositioning tables right from the very first storey.

Ta­bles can be lift­ed on struc­tures of any height

Only a few simple steps are needed to modify the TLS and turn it into a climbing unit that is suspended from the floor-slab. As soon as the TLS is hung into place and fixed, you can start work right away on lifting the Dokamatic tables up to the next floor. In this way, even the tallest buildings can be formed safely and quickly, independently of both wind conditions and crane availability, using Doka tableforms.

Crane-in­de­pen­dent rais­ing of the Table Lift­ing Sys­tem TLS

As well as the crane-lifted version of the TLS that is suspended from the slab, the TLS can also be used as a self-climbed system for any height of structure. The self-climbing solution delivers even more crane-time savings and safety on the site, as the TLS can now be 'jumped' 100% automatically. The self-climbing TLS is the perfect add-on to Doka tableforms and to protection screens at the slab-edges. This equipment line-up is the ideal slab formwork solution for tall structures.
