RMD Kwikform Korea's new Safety Screens are helping developer Doosan meet strict site safety requirements during construction of the two 34 storey We've Poseidon II residential towers in Bucheon. Having completed the concrete construction stage in nine months, Doosan, working with formwork subcontractor Yeo Heung, needed a safety screen system due to the project's strict health and safety guidelines.
According to RMD Kwikform Korea sales director, J H Park, the new safety screen was developed with sister company RMD Australia, which had designed a similar system for use in Australia. “By designing a system that could be installed and dismantled swiftly, we were able to provide a solution that was economically beneficial to the customer, and reduced labour costs substantially,” said Mr Park.
The We've towers’ 74 safety screen sets, which cover three floors, were made from a combination of RMD's Superslim range, with screening mesh and modular flooring panels. The easy-to-install modular system incorporates lifting hooks allowing easy movement of linked sections, which can be crane lifted and secured to the building's exterior walls in one simple operation.
