Our Formwork System
With the SKYDECK drophead system, striking can be carried out after only one day (depending on the slab thickness and strength of the concrete). The drophead is released with a hammer blow which causes the formwork to drop 60 mm (panels and main beams). The panels can be separated easily from the concrete and immediately used for the next cycle. Furthermore, on-site material requirements are reduced. The SKYDECK main beam reduces the number of props needed – only one prop is required per slab area of 3.45 m² for thicknesses up to 40 cm. This saves time and simplifies the transportation of formwork materials across the site.
SKYDECK panels as well as main beams are equipped with self-draining edges. The edges of the panels are undercut which ensures cleaning is kept to a minimum and thus shorter shuttering times.
The SKYDECK guarantees a straight support line at the end of the formwork. With system parts, these infill areas can be quickly formed with system components.
Systematic assembly and a high degree of safety for standard bays as well as the slab edge is achieved using SKYDECK platforms. The SLT 375 main beam provides a cantilever of approx. 1.30 m. The GS-approved SKYDECK SDB platform together with a foldable handrail frame is safely positioned by means of the SSH shuttering aid. The SKYDECK platform has a safe working load of 150 kg/m².
The SKYDECK is equipped with a drophead. Early striking is possible after only one day (depending on the slab thickness and concrete strength). On-site material requirements can be reduced as the beams and panels are then available for the next concreting cycle. Work can be arranged more flexibly – for instance, by striking early during periods of poor weather.
SKYDECK components are made of aluminum. No component weighs more than 15 kg. Thanks to the low individual weights, SKYDECK enables easy and tireless erection and striking.
Easy to clean
SKYDECK minimises cleaning costs: the main beam complete with plastic rack lies protected under the panels - cleaning the girder side is not required. Parts have self-draining edges and are powder-coated.
Fewer slab props
SKYDECK´s main beam reduces the number of props. Only 0.29 props per square metre of slab is required. Fewer props save time and leave more space during forming as well as for the transportation of formwork materials.
