Platform system Xsafe plus

The economical safety system for wall and column formworks

The pre-assembled, fold-out working platforms, with their integrable front/rear and side railings, ladders and self-closing manhole lids, are ready for immediate use and substantially enhance workplace safety. The system can be used on Framax Xlife framed and column formworks, Wall formwork FF20, and Large-area formwork Top 50 and Top 100 tec.

High workplace safety
achieved by integral safety functions 

  • safe assembly, as the lift-in-one units can be assembled in the horizontal
  • hazard-free access to the work deck made possible by integrable telescoping ladders and integrated, self-closing manhole lids
  • the all-round front/rear and side railings provide safe working conditions on the formwork
  • no need for improvisations, as the system adapts to the formwork with safe solutions for platform extensions and corner transitions

Fast workflows
aided by practice-focused system attributes 

  • quick to put up and take down, thanks to its pre-assembled fold-down platform units
  • quick and easy to reposition, as the formwork and platform can be raised simultaneously in just one crane cycle
  • unobstructed walkaround access, because the panel struts are fixed to the rear of the platform
  • workflows are optimised by the integrated connectors

Saves time, cuts costs
by being highly versatile 

  • highly economical, because a single platform concept can be used on all Doka wall systems
  • can also be retro-fitted to upright formwork with a lifting adapter
  • lower commissioning quantities cut storage and freight costs

System

Platform lengths from 1.00 m to 2.70 m

This platform system can be used on framed formwork and timber-beam formwork; in each case, three different lengths of platform are available. A steel frame protects the platform decking from damage during work on the site. The integrated connection options make it easier to connect add-on components for e.g. corner transitions and closures at a later stage.

Extending the platforms to either side

The platform can be telescoped out by up to 0.60 m on either side using the Xsafe plus platform extension 0.60m. In combination with the Xsafe plus platform transition and the Xsafe plus handrail extension, this creates safe platform transitions on the narrowsides of the formwork at corners or on closure gaps.

Xsafe plus supporting strut

The Xsafe plus supporting strut allows the platform inclination to be adjusted by +/- 5 degrees. The work deck always remains horizontal, providing safety on inclined formwork units as well. The strut also serves to transfer the forces when panel struts are connected up.

Side railing

The integrable side railing provides safe working conditions and is designed for use on either the left- or right-hand side of the platform. To safeguard closure gaps between two platforms, the system can be telescoped in 5 cm increments up to max. 50 cm, and moved backwards to allow unobstructed access around the platform.

Railings facing formwork

Thanks to the 'mounted-ahead' Xsafe plus counter railing, fall-hazard protection is already in place before anyone steps onto the platform. The side protection is thus complete on all four sides.

Ladders and manholes integrated in the system

The integrable ladder system and the self-closing manhole in the platform provide hazard-free access to the work deck. The telescoping ladder (155 cm to 271 cm) covers a large number of upright and horizontal panel combinations.

Xsafe plus handrail extension

The handrail extensions provide complete safety in cases where the platform has been enlarged with the 'platform extension'.

Utilisation

Connecting to framed formwork

The Xsafe plus platform waling 1.50m is attached to the top part of the framed formwork, where it connects the pouring platform to the formwork. The Xsafe plus platform waling 2.10m is used in cases where panels are vertically stacked, and aligns the formwork. It also ensures that the intermediate platforms are always in the right position for operating the formwork's connecting and anchoring components.

Connecting to timber-beam formwork

The Xsafe plus waling connector allows the platform waling or multipurpose waling to be connected to the timber-beam formwork.

Connecting to column formwork

Safety is particularly important when columns have to be formed at slab-edges. The Xsafe plus column adapter allows the platforms to be used on column formwork as well. Safe ladderways and fully walkable platforms are solved within the system.

Use as a pouring platform

The Xsafe plus lifting adapter makes it possible to mount an Xsafe plus platform on a framed formwork unit that is already standing in the upright. No walings are needed in order to do this. With this method, the commissioning quantities for the pouring-platform level can be reduced.

Repositioning large units

The Xsafe plus lifting waler makes it possible to lift the formwork into the upright after it has been assembled in the horizontal, and to reposition large formwork units together with the platform system. The lifting waler is CE-marked and is supplied with Operating Instructions.

Transport and handling

Where space is tight, the Xsafe plus swivel plate enables large formwork units to be delivered to the site complete with the platform system. This means that less assembly work is needed on the site.
