Edge pro­tection sys­tem XP

The fall-ar­rest sys­tem for formwork and struc­ture shell

This sys­tem is the uni­ver­sal safe­ty so­lu­tion for all edge pro­tection needs. It fits in ide­al­ly with Doka sys­tems – be they wall or floor-slab formwork – for safe­guard­ing slab-edges or as fall-ar­rest bar­ri­ers on the struc­ture shell.


All-in-one sys­tem for fall pro­tection
on both formwork and struc­ture shell 


  • with on­ly one type of up­right for all types of side­guards
  • for formwork, stair­ways and struc­ture edges
  • thanks to its dif­fer­ent con­nec­tors cov­er­ing all ap­pli­ca­tions

Quick and easy to erect
with easy-click func­tion for high­er pro­duc­tiv­i­ty 

Er­go­nom­i­cal­ly en­gi­neered

  • with a log­i­cal set-up pro­ce­dure that makes the sys­tem quick and self-ex­pla­na­to­ry to use
  • for easy han­dling
  • thanks to stur­dy lightweight con­struc­tion
  • with cap­tive­ly in­te­grat­ed parts, which al­so cuts costs

Rev­o­lu­tio­nary bot­tom-fixed height ex­ten­ders for the up­rights
grat­ing heights of up to 1.80 m are pos­si­ble with 20 per­cent few­er up­rights 

This in­ge­nious sys­tem

  • pro­vides full safe­ty up to 1.20 m, with on­ly one up­right
  • can be ex­tend­ed to 1.80 m sim­p­ly by ad­d­ing a spe­cial­ly de­vel­oped bot­tom-fixed height ex­ten­der for the up­right
  • cov­ers all ap­pli­ca­tions per­fect­ly with just two types of up­right, ob­vi­at­ing the need to keep many dif­fer­ent types avai­l­able on­site

Handrail post XP 1.20m

The Handrail post XP 1.20m features 'use-anywhere' versatility, covering all types of edge protection. Either protective gratings, wooden planks, scaffold tubes or gap-free boarding can be used as the safety barriers.

Easy-Click func­tion

The Easy-Click function makes it quick and easy to mount and dismount the Handrail post XP 1.20m without tools, and locks automatically to prevent accidental lift-out.

Test­ed safe­ty

The edge protection system is EN 13374 compliant, as certified by a GS Mark awarded by an external institute. Detailed User Information booklets and dimensioning diagrams, including wind-loads, are available.

Pro­tec­tive grat­ing XP

The integral hollow frame gives the hot-dip galvanised Protective grating XP great stability and a long lifespan. The integral toeboard and the handles make for safety and flexibility, particularly when work is being carried out at slab-edges and on facades.

Bot­tom-fixed height ex­ten­ders for the up­rights, for grat­ing heights of up to 1.80 m

The system can be extended to a grating height of 1.80 m simply by adding specially developed bottom-fixed height extenders for the uprights. The distances between the uprights do not need to be narrowed for this.

A third less stor­age and tran­s­port vol­ume

The design of the system makes for very simple and space-saving warehouse and site logistics. The system is compact to transport and easy to handle.

In­di­vi­d­u­alised ad­ver­tis­ing ve­hi­cle

The Protective grating XP is available with the customer's logo and corporate colour on request, turning it into a high-visibility advertising vehicle on the site.

Con­nec­tor components

The system is rounded off by practical connectors to meet the requirements of any situation – concrete floor-slabs, balconies, sheeting walls, stairways, bridge superstructures, wall and floor formwork or platforms.


Edge pro­tection sys­tem XP on the formwork

  • all spacings and lengths of grating are sized to fit Doka formwork systems, and are statically optimised
  • after every forming cycle, the component geometry may mean that different requirements need to be met: XP is easy to adapt
  • fluid transition from flexible deployment on the formwork to long-term use on the structure shell

Safe­guard­ing slab-edges and plat­forms

The connector component used for safeguarding exposed slab edges or the narrowsides of platforms is the Railing clamp XP 40cm. The constructional design of the clamp ensures that the toeboard is held flush with the slab or the formwork, so that no small items can fall off. For bridge superstructures, a version is available with a clamping range of 2 cm to 85 cm.

Flat roofs and para­pets

Fall-arrest barriers for e.g. guttering and other rooftop work can also be put up on flat roofs and parapets using Floor end-shutter clamps and Handrail-posts XP 1.20m.

Us­ing on wall formwork

The Framax adapter XP is used to mount the side railings to the opposing formwork. The advantage of this solution is that the side railings can be attached to the formwork while it is still flat on the ground, and will stay permanently fixed to the formwork both while it is being repositioned and when it is in the cleaning position (with the form-ply facing upwards). During pouring, the railings can be tilted backwards by 15 degrees.

Us­ing on Dokaflex ta­bles

The Dokamatic adapter XP is used to attach a Handrail post XP to a Dokamatic table. The adapter is suitable for all sizes of table and has an integral lowering function.

Edge pro­tection sys­tem XP on the struc­ture shell

  • optimised connector components for both building-construction and civil-engineering applications
  • easy to adapt, thanks to wide distances between uprights
  • protective gratings can easily be raised for mounting the exterior facade
  • the protective gratings are easy to remove, e.g. before equipment is transported
  • easy, liftout-proof floor anchorages using Screw sleeve 20.0, for pressing into soft concrete

Safe­guard­ing ex­posed slab edges

The Screw-on shoe XP and Screw sleeve 20.0 are pressed into the still-fresh concrete, meaning that the floor-slab is readied for the Edge protection system XP as part of the concreting operation.


The Step bracket XP is fixed to the end face of the stairway and allows the tiles or flagstones which are being laid on the steps to project out by as much as 4 cm.

Fix­ing to con­crete floor-slabs

Used in conjunction with the Express anchor 16x125mm, the Handrail-post shoe XP makes it possible to retrofit the side railings.

De­mar­ca­tion fence

When combined with standard fence-feet baseblocks, the Edge protection system XP can also be used to demarcate different working areas within a jobsite.

Safe­ty on para­pets

The Parapet adapter XP is connected to the Railing clamp XP 40cm or the Railing clamp XP 85cm; together with the Handrail post XP 0.60m, it then provides optimum edge protection on parapets.

Pro­tection at load-bearing ma­son­ry walls

The Protective grating holder XP is used for securing Protective gratings XP of all types to masonry walls of sufficient load-bearing strength (e.g. as fall protection in front of doorway openings, shafts, balconies, etc.).

Safe­ty bar­ri­ers on sheet­ing walls

Sheet pile adapter XP is used in combination with Protective grating XP, scaffold tubes or guard-rail boards for erecting safety barriers on sheeting walls.

Doka per­so­n­al fall-ar­rest set

With the Doka personal fall-arrest set you can protect your crew in situations where guardrail systems such as side handrail clamping units or personal fall-arrest sets are not feasible. Introductory training required.
