50 • March 2017 www.concreteproducts.com FEATURE SHOW REPORT A leader in concrete formwork technology, the company will showcase wall, slab and climbing solutions, plus engineering, field support, pre-assembly and project management services. Additionally, it will display advances such as Concremote sensors, which enable con- tractors and quality control technicians to measure early strength development in real time—simplifying management of forming and cast-in-place concreting operations. Among offerings Doka spotlights at ConExpo-Con/Agg will be the Super Climber SCP, billed as the next generation in climbing formwork and engineered so that the entire building core formwork is raised independent of the crane. At the push of a button, all platforms— along with interior and exterior formwork for a floor—climbs in one single cylinder stroke. Additionally, the company will show the Dokadek panelized floor formwork system; a new stripping corner promoted as the fastest and easiest way to strip cores; and, Frami Xlife, a lightweight, strong, extended life cycle handset formwork system. Frami Xlife panels can be erected quickly by hand with low labor requirements and without a crane or in a gang-form when used with a crane. The system is opti- mized to a minimum of workplace accessories needed, which provides for fast assembly and less material on site. Suited to walls, columns and footings, Frami Xlife affords what product engineers note are unlimited possible combinations, in width and height. "Doka shows contractors reliable, cost-effective and advanced methods for concrete construction that are proven to provide safe, successful and profitable end results on their next high-rise, power, bridge, tunnel or infrastructure project," says Michael Schaeffer, vice president of Sales North & South America. — Doka North America, 877/DOKA-USA, 201/853-0525; www.dokausa.com Booth G1622 DOKA NORTH AMERICA The Doka Super Climber was used on the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, New York City's 432 Park Ave. Crews have now deployed the system on the nearby Central Park Tower, on track to become the world's tallest residential building.
