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
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
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:
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
The Doka Xtra head permits early stripping, thereby speeding up the whole workflow.
Floor slab with Doka Xtra formwork still in place
Folding tripods and intermediate props are removed
Floor-slab formwork is lowered using the Doka Xtra head
The secondary beams, and most of the formwork sheets, are removed
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.
