Doka presents new Framax Xlife plus
By Joe Malone13 April 2016
Doka presented its range of products at Bauma, including the Framax Xlife plus, which is the company’s latest innovation of framed formwork.
The form-tie technology can be operated from one side and has no wearing parts, which the company said ensured an even faster working pace.
At 1.35m, the form-tie grid is wide, and can offer a 12% cost saving, according to Doka, compared to a 1.2m form-tie grid.
Meanwhile, the company also showcased its Dokadek 30, which is a beamless, hand-set formwork system designed as a lightweight steel construction faced with a wood/plastic-composite sheet. The system combines the advantages of a panel floor formwork system with those of Dokaflex floor formwork.
Jürgen Obiegli, chairman of executive board, said, “Doka made a commitment to building the lead in formwork technology.
“This is the reason we continue developing measures to boost construction efficiency and putting them into practice systematically. Firstly, in formwork systems, and secondly in the technical services to go with them.”
He added that Doka formwork solutions always come as a package that delivers tangible benefits to its customers.
