Dokadek 30 combines the advantages of a panel floor formwork system with those of Dokaflex floor-slab formwork

UK, March 23, 2017.-  Dokadek 30 is a beam-less, hand-set formwork system designed as a lightweight steel structure with yellow coated frames faced with timber/plastic-composite sheeting. Dokadek 30 combines the advantages of a panel floor formwork system with those of Dokaflex floor-slab formwork: its 32 ft2 large panels make it fast in typical zones, yet – thanks to Dokaflex – it is quick and flexible in the infill zones as well. Dokadek 30 – with or without drop head: the evolution of floor-slab formwork.

Ex­traor­d­i­nar­i­ly fast forming by in­te­grat­ing both the typ­i­cal and in­fill zone
• The typical zones are formed simply by tilting up the beam-less panels, each of up to 32 ft2 in area
• Mesh­es seam­less­ly with Dokaflex for time-sav­ing clos­ing of in­fill zones
• Can be con­nect­ed di­rect­ly to Dokaflex, al­low­ing grid-in­de­pen­dent adap­ta­tion to any lay­out
• Uncluttered logistics, as there are only 2 sizes of panel: 8’ x 4’ and 8’ x 2.7’
• The in­termesh­ing work se­quence means both mem­bers of 2-man forming crews are al­ways oc­cu­pied

Ex­tra-safe work­ing
as the sys­tem is set up for work­ing from the ground
• with the suspension tool, panels up to 13’ can be assembled from the ground-level
• safe­ly han­dled by on­ly two peo­ple thanks to the er­go­nom­ic de­sign of the grip-holes in the edge-pro­file
• no se­parate wind brac­ing need­ed as the pan­els come with built-in an­ti-liftout guard
Han­dling-method is easy to un­der­s­tand
as the work­flow is so log­i­cal and ob­vi­ous
• no need to cal­cu­late or mea­sure up, as the po­si­tions and num­bers of props and pan­els are all made clear by the sys­tem
• safe to op­er­ate, even for se­mi-skilled crew, as the se­quence of work­steps is pre-defined
• short in­tro­duc­to­ry train­ing times as the sys­tem on­ly has a small num­ber of dif­fer­ent parts
• horizontal repositioning of 130 ft2 of Dokadek 30 on the DekDrive – even through narrow doorways and access openings

Pan­el with Xlife sheet

The galvanised and yellow coated steel frame of the panel with riveted-on Xlife sheet is long-lived and permits many re-use cycles without changing the form-facing. The small number of joints and the neat joint pattern along with the uniform concrete finish, make it easy to achieve great results, time after time.

Dokadek sup­port head
The standard head for holding the panels firmly. The integral anti-liftout guard prevents any of the panels accidentally falling off, and makes extra precautions (such as wind bracing) unneccessary.
Dokadek XF drop head
and additional closure panels make early stripping of the panels possible. The newly developed 2-stage lowering function and the built-in anti-liftout guard prevent panels from accidentally dropping down.
Floor prop Eu­rex top
Floor prop with impact protector:
• durable, due to impact protector
• easy-to-turn adjusting nut, thanks to special thread geometry
• less physical effort needed because the prop is lightweight
• operational safety achieved by consistently high load capacity of at least 20 and/or 30 kN in accordance with EN 1065 – Class D/E.

Easy, back-friend­ly work­ing, from floor-lev­el
he working posture is generally upright – with Dokadek 30, frequent bending down and inserting panels from above are a thing of the past. Even the job of removing the panels can be done without any laddering; strenuous overhead work is reduced to an absolute minimum.
Fast formwork re­mo­val is a crit­i­cal suc­cess fac­tor
because this operation takes up around 33 % of the total forming time. With Dokadek 30, the panels are stripped out without any time-consuming overhead work. The DekDrive then lets you shift up to 130 ft2 of Dokadek 30 at a time.
Pre-defined erec­tion se­quence
The clearly defined erection sequence prevents the crew from attempting dangerous improvisations, and ensures a consistently high safety level – even when semi-skilled labour is deployed. Because of the number of props and how they are arranged, with Dokadek 30 there is no need to dimension the system in advance.
