The aim of all Doka's preliminary services is to achieve greater efficiency by providing transparently costed and optimised formwork concepts. Stage by stage, this active project support helps you carry out every contract. Right from the Project Development Stage, Doka puts its know-how and expertise at your service, giving you the basis on which to take well-founded decisions.
The sooner the Doka technicians start inputting their knowledge and experience into the project, the more efficiently it can then be carried out. In each of its stages. And by staying with the project all the way until it is successfully completed, Doka builds long-term partnerships with its customers.
Doka safety systems facilitate every single stage of the project. Safety is 'planned in' right from the outset, co-ordinated with the formwork technology systems used, and designed to boost productivity and quality. The working platforms used in pouring include side railings and opposing guard-rails. On tall wall formwork units, intermediate platforms with side railings are a safe and efficient solution. Safe vertical access to the pouring-platform level is particularly important on column formwork. Doka meets these requirements with practical safety solutions.
Doka provides professional edge protection for both formwork and structure. Its tried-and-tested edge protection systems give your crew optimum protection and make a big contribution towards a smooth construction workflow. They use sturdy, rugged safety components to ensure reliable protection in line with the latest safety standards (EN 13374). Workers who are properly protected work safely, faster, and more efficiently.
It has to be possible to get to all workplaces on the site safely – especially when any climbing is involved. Doka supplies ladderway systems that are fully integrated in the formwork system concerned. These access systems are designed to make the formwork easy to operate.
When it comes to offloading, assembling and repositioning formwork components on the site, this affects more than just the construction workflow. It also has to be done safely. Doka supplies professional shifting devices that speed up repositioning operations while ensuring a high standard of safety.
On the site, every single workstep is crucial. Motion sequences such as aligning and manoeuvring, engaging and disengaging, lifting and repositioning, all presuppose a high standard of safety. With its site-proven safety systems, Doka meets all safety-critical requirements.
Doka is actively involved in international committees and industry associations, as a strong advocate for Standards-compliant formwork and safety systems. The certificates awarded to Doka safety systems are your guarantee of high quality. Doka – a pathbreaker in safety as well.
The duly certified manufacturer can issue the CE mark of conformity; the basis is EC Directive 89/392/EEC, commonly known as the Machinery Directive. Products that bear this mark are subject to regular inspection and testing. This helps avoid risks and accident hazards.
The GSV is the "Güteschutzverband Betonschalungen e. V." an association of all leading formwork manufacturers. The GSV mark confirms that the formwork is capable of resisting the stated formwork pressure and is compliant with a specified standard for used formwork.
The high-calibre Doka staff on this committee share in shaping the relevant European standards. This means that you can be confident of working with standards-compliant formwork for a long time to come.
