The gains in efficiency through the use of the RCS Rail Climbing System rise with the increasing height of the building. Based on the experience so far, I would say that the climbing solution makes great economic sense for the construction of buildings with more than 15 floors. The enclosure on all sides of the building protects the construction team against the effects of wind and weather, and allows safe and efficient working. This is a big advantage in high-rise construction near the coast where wind is a serious risk factor.

PERI solution

  • Assisting the construction team also in the planning phase with technical know-how in the area of climbing technology
  • Providing continuous on-site support regarding all technical questions during the execution of the construction work
  • RCS P Climbing Protection Panel served as the enclosure as well as anti-fall protection of the floors in the building shell
  • RCS Rail Climbing System combined with MAXIMO Panel Formwork for constructing the core walls of the elevator shafts
  • MAXIMO Shaft Corners MXSE served simultaneously as 90° internal corners and striking panel
