Peri launches rail climbing system


FORMWORK MAKER Peri has launched a new hydraulic rail climbing system for climbing formwork (RCS-C) and full edge protection (RCS-P).

Both RCS' climbing shoes are bolted to an existing wall, which guides the formwork system and clamps them at their lower end.

The advantage of the system is that the unit never leaves the wall and, in the case of crane handling, the crane is only used to provide the vertical force to move the unit from one oor to the next. This allows climbing to take place in wind speeds of up to 72km/h.

In the RCS-C conguration, the system is compatible with Peri formwork systems and the platforms provide safe access to all associated formwork operations.

The RCS-P system provides edge protection and screening to the building and workforce from strong winds and inclement weather.

Both systems were most recently used by sub contractor Byrne Bros. (Formwork) on London's Bankside Development.
