The Lubeca Jumpform is a high performance self-climbing platform used in the construction of concrete cores of high-rise buildings that secures fast, efficient and safe building progress utilised by all trades.
Fast system operation
The entire platform is lifted hydraulically in only a few operational steps at the push of a button. For the repositioning procedure, long stroke heavy duty hydraulic rams are used, which allow for the system to climb from floor to floor in a continuous process to achieve fast progress.
Efficient building progress
Our system incorporates a unique three-way adjustment system for its wallform panels that assures greater accuracy of formwork adjustment. The system has jacking beams supported by concrete that has already set in a previous pour, allowing the structure to be lifted the day after pouring and the core to cycle independently from the slabs.
The powerful hydraulic rams secure an efficient use of cranage as the platform can also transport high payloads, including equipment containers and concrete placing booms, during climbing. The top deck is free of jacking masts and other mechanical obstacles, which protects all operational equipment from concrete spills and possibility of crane damage.
Enabling safe construction works
The system is fully enclosed, which prevents the hazard of falling objects from locations opened up during repositioning. Additionally, the hydraulic safety features in use include a complete backup system and non-return ratchet locks and valves on each ram to assure safe climbing.
Designed to perfectly align trades
Rolling or lowered shutters allow a parallel access for placement of steel reinforcement, penetrations and built-in items to further increase building efficiency. The Jumpform design provides for concreters, steel fixers, lift installers, electricians, plumbers, mechanical services and patching operations. Additionally the integrated slim-line shutters further increase work area access. Secure trailing platforms can be installed allowing access for trades, such as lift installers, and can be used as a secondary means of entry and egress.
