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.
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.
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.
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.

The system is rounded off by practical connectors to meet the requirements of any situation – concrete floor-slabs, stairways, bridge superstructures, wall and floor-slab 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.

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.
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.
