Dokaflex

The fast, ver­satile hand-set sys­tem

Dokaflex is the timber-beam floor formwork for all kinds of lay­outs. Meet­ing in­di­vi­d­u­al re­quire­ments re­gard­ing the con­crete fin­ish is no problem, as any type of form-fac­ing can be cho­sen. Two Dokaflex de­sign ver­sions are avai­l­able for use to meet your pro­ject re­quire­ments.

Adapt­a­bil­i­ty to all lay­outs
by te­le­s­cop­ing the formwork beams 

  • down­s­tand beams and floor ex­ten­sions can eas­i­ly be solved 'within the sys­tem'
  • per­fect adapt­a­bil­i­ty to columns and walls
  • op­ti­mis­ing for dif­fer­ent slab thick­ness
  • suit­able for shoring fili­gree slabs

Safe and fast to set up
thanks to pre-defined sys­tem grid 

  • se­lec­tion from two beam lengths makes for sim­pli­fied lo­gis­tics and less time spent search­ing
  • fast and easy forming of floors up to 30 cm thick made easy with beam mark­ings
  • re­duced equip­ment need thanks to stat­i­cal­ly op­ti­mised beam and prop spac­ing with Dokaflex 20

Durable and prac­ti­cal
thanks to its stur­dy sys­tem components 

  • high num­bers of re-use cy­cles and re­duced close-out costs, due to the shock ab­sor­bers and pro­tec­tors on the sys­tem components
  • site lo­gis­tics are sim­pli­fied by the per­fect­ly co-or­d­i­nat­ed sys­tem components
  • first-rate con­crete sur­faces, as any type of form-fac­ing can be se­lect­ed

System

Beam H20 ­top

Up to 3 times the lifespan, thanks to built-in shock absorber

  • effective protection against moisture and UV radiation, as beam-ends are sealed around web
  • fast, safe formwork set-up by referring to markings on the flanges
  • unmistakably identifiable, thanks to labelling option

Formwork sheet 3-SO

  • first-rate concrete results through choice timber and superior surface treatment
  • minimal deformation and reduced cleaning costs through continuous edge strip
  • long lifespan thanks to specially aligned face-ply and high dimensional stability
  • low cost due to high reuse numbers
  • clearly recognizable thanks to labelling option

Floor prop Eu­rex top

Floor prop with impact protector

  • durable, due to impact protector
  • easy-to-turn adjusting nut, thanks to special thread geometry
  • less physical effort needed because the prop is lightweight
  • operational safety achieved by consistently high load capacity of at least 20 and/or 30 kN in accordance with EN 1065 – Class D/E

Util­i­sa­tion

Dokaflex 1-2-4 with built-in 'set-up log­ic'

Here's how eas­i­ly the sys­tem works

1-2-4 – these are the maximum spacings for setting-up Dokaflex 1-2-4. Triangular marks on the beams serve as a built-in 'measuring tape'

  • 1 mark = maximum spacing of secondary beams
  • 2 marks = maximum spacing of props
  • 4 marks = maximum spacing of primary beams

  • marks on the beams show you maximum spacings between secondary beams, props and primary beams, for floors up to 30 cm thick
  • having only two different beam lengths simplifies logistics and reduces the time spent searching
  • you can tell at a glance whether the formwork has been set up correctly

Dokaflex 1-2-4 slide rule: equipment needs for large and small rooms are easily calculated based on the floor area available from your Doka adviser

Dokaflex 20 with op­ti­mised com­mis­sion­ing quan­ti­ties

In­di­vi­d­u­al pro­ject re­quire­ments

  • Dokaflex can be adapted to the most complex layouts; it also optimises the formwork equipment needed
  • beam and prop spacings are optimised depending on the layout, and in accordance with the floor load
  • infill zones are formed quickly and easily without additional props by telescoping the formwork beams

For cus­tomised forming op­er­a­tions

  • very little equipment is needed thanks to statically optimised beam and prop spacings, which are in accordance with the room geometry and the loads generated
  • downstand beams and floor extensions can be solved easily 'within the system'
  • much lower quantities commissioned

Technical slide rule Dokaflex 20: quick and easy optimisation of beam and prop spacing directly on-site available from your Doka adviser

just a few steps and your beam spacings are calculated directly on our website or by using our app: www.doka.com/apps

Quantities commissioned are reduced because approx. 75 percent of the system components become available for reuse, thus yielding optimal utilisation of the equipment. The stripping process is very efficient and cost-optimised because it is defined.

Dokaflex with Xtra head for ear­ly strip­ping

Ear­ly strip­ping

The Doka Xtra head permits early stripping, thereby speeding up the whole workflow.

Ini­tial si­t­u­a­tion

Floor slab with Doka Xtra formwork still in place

Step 1

Folding tripods and intermediate props are removed

Step 2

Floor-slab formwork is lowered using the Doka Xtra head

Step 3

The secondary beams, and most of the formwork sheets, are removed

Step 4

The primary beams are removed. The temporary reshoring stays in place until the concrete has attained sufficient load-bearing strength.

Doka Xtra head

If the project requires early stripping, the Dokaflex timber-beam formwork system can be equipped with the Doka Xtra head. It permits early stripping and most of the formwork equipment can be reused right away in the next casting section.
