SKYDECK Panelized Slab Formwork

SKYDECK Panel Slab Formwork: The lightweight and proven aluminium panel slab formwork with short shuttering times.
SKYDECK for easy and safe assembly. The panels lock in place in the teeth and don’t sway anymore. Also unskilled staff can learn to handle it very quickly.
Columns can be easily shuttered with SKYDECK edge beams (length 75 cm or 150 cm). The fitting areas are closed with 21-mm-thick plywood.
The approx. 15 kg lightweight system components support quick and simple working operations with SKYDECK.
One blow of the hammer releases the drophead; in the process, the formwork is lowered by 6 cm. Main beams and panels can then be struck.
The SKYDECK platform ensures safe working conditions at the slab edges and saves the installation of safety scaffold in the level below.
The lifting platform allows safe shuttering and striking operations. It can also be used for reworking tasks or dismantling the shoring construction.

Overview

SKYDECK´s range of applications extends from residential construction through to industrial construction projects with thicker slabs. With extensive range of accessories, the slab formwork is ideally suited for markets with very high safety standards. The systematic assembly sequence and lightweight system components accelerate working operations. In addition, early striking with the drophead system reduces on-site material requirements. The small prop requirements ensures more freedom of movement under the slab formwork and simplifi es the horizontal transportation of materials.

Effortless working
with very lightweight and easy to handle components

Fast forming
due to the simple and systematic assembly sequence and only a minimum of slab props

Easy cleaning
through powder-coated elements, components made of plastic, and undercut panel edges

Low on-site material requirements
due to early striking with the drophead and fast deployment of the panels and beams in the next storey


Technical Details

  • Panel slab formwork with lightweight aluminium system components including formlining
  • For slab thicknesses up to 42 cm (with 225 cm main beam) or with 150 cm main beam and 75 cm panel width for slab thicknesses up to 109 cm
  • With lightweight individual components (panels and main beams weigh only 15.5 kg respectively)
  • Systematic assembly sequence whereby the size of the panel dictates the prop position
  • Only 0.29 props per m² of slab formwork
  • Through the change in the direction of the panel, fifi ller areas are reduced to a minimum
  • With practical accessories for fast longitudinal and lateral compensations as well as the closing of residual gaps
  • High level of safety at slab edges with cantilevered girders and SKYDECK platforms
  • Safety on the front side by means of end guardrails that can be installed in any position on the main beams without requiring tools.

With SKYDECK, we have exactly the right slab formwork system for our construction project – the drophead for early striking as well as the simple and easy handling have really convinced us. And the MAXIMO wall formwork is 25 per cent faster than conventional panel formwork systems; the one-sided anchoring in particular saves a great deal of time.
