Meva has introduced its MAC automatic climbing system. The climbing platform system, which is supported by independent structural members installed between the shear key beam and gridwork, offers a fully enclosed environment and is hydraulically lifted by up to 4 m in any lift.
A single remote control operates the hydraulics and the lift from one level up to the next takes between one and two hours. A Meva statement said, “The MAC only requires five to six working days per level, which should offer a distinct scheduling advantage.”The system employs a completely independent three-way adjustment on both internal and external shutters and the suspended forming shutters are made of slim-line aluminium, steel or wooden whalers, to increase working area and ease access.
