2 Before concreting

To reduce the risk of accidents during concrete work, always follow these procedures before
beginning:

Thoroughly check and make sure that:


All formwork ties are properly fitted,
all climbing anchors are installed I!!
All climbing anchors are in the correct position ,
all climbing cones are properly fitted and sufficiently greased,
all threaded anchor plates are fitted to the climbing cones
the formwork panels are connected,
dimensions are checked and verify compliance with specifications.

3 Vibrator systems

PERI is neither responsible nor assumes liability for the vibrator system used

- Internal vibrators can demage the surface of the plywood if used inappropriately.

- External vibrators can subject the formwork to excessive mechanical loads.


This could result in parts of the formwork being damaged or deformed whereby the
dimensional accuracy of the formwork can no longer be guaranteed.

PERI recommends the use of external vibrators from Mooser Schwingungstechnik


as these have been coordinated for use with PERI formwork.

Without exception, use of other types of external vibrators (electrical or pneumatic) by the
construction company I contractors is always subject to their area of responsibility.

PERI does not assume liability or acceptance of any costs incurred in the event of
damage or loss.

5 Climbing up

The automatic climbing system technique enables:


work to be carried out without needing a crane to move the climbing platforms;
climbing platforms to climb even under windy or bad weather conditions.

Prerequisites

Wind velocity: No wind load calculated on the ACS-P platforms, because the exteriour
RCS-C units must climb before the ACS-P
Workers: 2
Observers: 1

To reduce the risk of personal injury caused by teared hydraulic lines, make sure that the
hydraulic supply lines are long enough for climbing platforms that are joined together.

5.1 Climbing principle

The climbing operation can be broken down into three phases.

Phase 1:
- The wall has been concreted, formwork in position.

Phase 2:
- The formwork has been retracted.
. Lead anchor devices and climbing shoes have been fixed to wall.
. Climbing beams move upwards by hydraulic into the climbing shoes.

Phase 3:
The climbing beams have been secured in the lead climbing shoe.
The climbing platform climbs to the next pouring step.
The climbing platform has been secured in the climbing shoe.

Rail Climbing System RCS
1. Features
The rail climbing system is a bracket-type framework construction and is designed as falsework, ac-
cording to the provisions laid out in DIN 4421 , for supporting wall formwork.
The climbing scaffold consists basically of 2 bracket units (climbing rails with platform beams and
diagonal struts) which are connected with the platfo rms (working platform, intermediate platform and
finishing platform) and scaffold tube bracing. Platforms consist of planking fixed to girders (GT 24 or
VT 20 formwork girders). The platforms are pre-assembled on the cross-beams (working platform),
intermediate platform girders or finishing platform girders. Handrail posts and guardrail posts, with
handrail boards or scaffold tubes attached, serve as safety barriers against falling .
The climbing formwork is formed by connecting the formwork and climbing scaffold by means of a
SRU U120 strongback which can be moved either as a climbing unit using a crane (attachment point
on the strongback) or as a self-climbing unit with an integrated hydraulic climbing mechanism. The self
climbing mechanism has a lifting capacity of 50 kN and a stroke height of 50 cm. Accessories for at-
taching the formwork serve for mounting VARIO and TRIO formwork systems
Strongbacks are fixed to the carriage and braced with formwork spindles. Th rough the approx. 90 cm
gap created when retracting the formwork, there is an end-to-end free working area available.

The two-part climbing rail is connected by an articulated coupling. By turning the framework spindle
between the working and intermediate platforms, the upper climbing rail can be easily adjusted at an
angle vis-a-vis the bottom climbing rail. This makes mounting in the next climbing shoe easier when
climbing and allows the bottom climbing shoe to be removed.

The distance of the platforms to each other can be freely selected in increments of 12.5 cm. This en-
sures safe transition between the platforms during the climbing procedu re.

The concreting platform is normally mounted to the formwork.

2. Intended Use
These assembly instructions contain binding details for the assembly, handling and intended use of
the scaffolding. There must be additional assembly and working plans, project-specific static calcula-
tions and supplementary assembly instructions for the construction site available so that the climbing
scaffold can be safely erected and used.

These assembly instructions, PERI offer and implementation plans as well as other PERI product in-
formation do not replace operational construction site work and assembly instructions or country-
specific safety regulations.

Special permission and supplementary assembly instructions must be given by PERI or authorized
personnel if the scaffold is to be used for applications other than it has been designed for.

climbing the last platform in a cycle or if manual adjustments are required during the self
climbing procedure, accessing the platform to be climbed is necessary.
• Max. wind speed 72 km/h

5.3 Non-Operational Status


• During longer work breaks, overnight, storm warnings, with wind speeds over 72 km/h
• Accessing the platforms during storm conditions is forbidden
• The formwork is moved on the carriage into the concreting position
• Materials and other equipment can be left on the working platform
• Wind speed v for calculations depends on utilization height H according to DIN 1055
H ~ 20 m: v = 129 km/h
H ~1 00m: v=151 km/h
H > 100m: v = 164km/h

• If given limits are exceeded, a visual inspection of all bearing parts and a functional check of
all safety-related parts are required for further use.
• If a storm warning has higher wind speeds than originally stated, the site management is to
be informed, all enclosure tarpaulins are to be removed and the scaffold can be climbed
down to the previous floor but only on the instructions of authorized site personnel.
Materials and other equipment are to be removed from the platforms.

7. Safe working conditions
7.1 General
If safety information as well as guidelines for assembly or intended use are not observed, this can lead
to accidents and damage to materials.

7.2 Responsibilities of the operator


The operator, for the purpose of these Assembly Instructions, is the contractor who places the work
equipment at the disposal of the user. Users are those persons who access or use the work equip-
ment. The required technical qualifications and authority to issue instructions are to be specified by the
operator within the scope of the operational work and assembly instructions.

The operator is obliged to provide all prerequisites to ensure compliance with applicable safety regula-
tions.

The operator must ensure that the assembly instructions provided by PERI and other relevant opera-
tional and assembly documentation are at the user's disposal. In addition, he has to make sure that all
required plan documents, parts lists and other data are available to the user.

All persons working with the product must be familiar with the content of these instructions and safety
information. Persons who cannot or have great difficulty in reading and understanding these instruc-
tions must inform and then be fully briefed by the operator.

The operator has to ensure that assembly, adjusting and dismantling, moving as well as correct use
and handling of the product is supervised by trained and authorized personnel.

The operator also has to ensure that authorized personnel supervise the securing of building edges to
prevent falling as well as correct closing of any gaps in the decking.

The operator has to make sure that appropriate and sufficient tools, lifting equipment and accessories,
a suitable and adequately-sized area for assembly and storage, as well as enough crane capacity are
available for the user. Transport, storage and maintenance of the climbing scaffold are carried out in a
safe, careful and environmentally-friendly manner.

If conditions deviate from those normally required for standard utilization which will affect the assembly
or use, the operator is obliged to provide additional work and assembly instructions.

7 .3 Safety Instructions
When erecting the climbing scaffold, ensure that all load effects are safely transferred into the support-
ing structure.
Stability must be guaranteed at all times. All equipment defects and risks to personnel are to be elimi-
nated.
Strip units only when the concrete has sufficiently hardened and site management has given the go-
ahead. Mounting the climbing units for the next concreting step can only take place after the required
concrete strength has been achieved.
It is the responsibility of qualified personnel to ensure that permissible live loads are not exceeded. For
individual working stages, only site personnel actually required for the job in hand may remain on the
climbing scaffold. Loads are to be evenly distributed. One-sided loads on cantilevered platform areas
are not permitted!
Maintenance and repairs

Climbing scaffold components are to be checked before every use to make sure they are in perfect
condition. Basically, all materials used must be in perfect condition.
Platforms are to be inspected by authorized personnel at regular intervals for any signs of damage. Dirt
and concrete surplus which can impair the functionality must to be removed immediately. Damaged
construction components are to be identified, removed and replaced.

Safe working conditions Copyright PERI GmbH, Germany 13 / 66


Safety components:
• Visual inspections by authorized personnel at regular intervals
• Function control to be carried out before every climbing sequence and assembly by qualified per-
sonnel
• Parts are to be replaced only with PERI original components.
• Repairs must be carried out by PERI-trained personnel only
• In cases of overloading or recurring damage, stop wori<: on and under the platforms, determine
and stop the cause.
Load-bearing system:
• Visual inspection to be carried out by authorized personnel before the first use
• Only PERI original parts to be used for repairs or exchange
• In cases of overloading or recurring damage, stop work on and under the platforms, determine
and stop the cause.
Other components:
• Repairs to be carried out by qualified personnel and site management is to be informed
• In cases of recurring damage, determine and stop the cause.
If the maximum permissible wind speed is exceeded, temperatures are beyond usual limits or after un-
usual events such as fire or earthquakes, all safety-related parts and the load-bearing system itself are
to be checked for function and bearing capacity before being used.

Access

Safe access to working areas must be provided at all times.


Gangways, stairs, stair towers or lifts are the preferred methods. Ladders are suitable only in excep-
tional cases.
Internal scaffolding ladders must not connect more than 2 scaffolding levels and have to be offset.
Safety must be ensured by mounting suitable equipment such as guardrails or netting on the outside
edge of the scaffold.
All access hatches and openings in accessible areas of the scaffold must be fitted with appropriate
equipment to prevent accidents. Hatch covers must be closed every lime after use.
In the case of an emergency situation, the working areas must have escape routes or suitable rescue
equipment available . It must also be ensured that at least one escape route or set of rescue equip-
ment is still usable if power supplies are cut off.
Protection against falling objects

Work must not take place at the same time on areas directly on top of each other, if the lower working
and access areas are not protected against falling objects such as tools and materials.
Access and working areas in dangerous positions are to be avoided. If this is not possible due to work-
ing procedures, suitable safety equipment must be in place. This also applies to work of short dura-
tion.
High wori<:ing positions must be secured with suitable netting (mesh size max. 2cm), stretching below
the working area from the top edge of the guardrail and fixed as close as possible to the building edge.
The gap between the building and netting may not exceed 5 cm.
Alternatively, the scaffold decking at high working positions can be placed close to the building and
multi-part guardrails can be replaced by a solid protective wall.
Lower-positioned working areas must have appropriate protective cover along the entire length of the
area at risk.
Ensure that tools and materials are not at risk of falling off the working area. Remove concrete surplus
and other evidence of dirt at regular intervals. In general, the platforms are to be kept clean.

14 /66 Copyrtght PERI GmbH, Germany Safe working conditions


Assembly work

During assembly work, unexpected dangerous situations can always arise- the level of which is to be
determined on an individual basis and, if necessary, measures are to be taken that will eliminate or al
least reduce the risk to a minimum.
If guardrails cannot be used due to technical reasons or they have to be removed, other equipment
must in place for catching any person falling to the ground. If the use of catching equipment should be
inappropriate, then a safety harness (personal protection equipment) can be used, if suitable attach-
ment points are available.
Use guide rope for better control of the assembly units when being moved by crane.
Avoid working under the path of loads being moved by crane. If this is not possible, suitable measures
are to be determined and implemented.
Site personnel must avoid remaining between suspended loads and the building.
Personnel must keep away from the area below where assembly work is being carried out if the area
at risk is not protected from falling objects. This area is to be clearly cordoned off.
Climbing procedure

When platforms are being moved, unprotected edges are created between the individual platforms
which present a safety risk. Such affected areas are to be cordoned off!
No persons, building materials or tools may be transported on the platforms when being moved by
crane. Exceptions are permitted due to an operational work and assembly instruction which is in line
with a required risk analysis.
When climbing by means of the hydraulic climbing device, details regarding the arrangement of the
hydraulic hoses must be considered. If a standard arrangement is not possible, then a safe alternative
is to be determined by a designated authorized person.
In the event of a malfunction, the platform is to be set down in the next possible position, personnel
are to leave the climbing unit using a safe access point and site management are to be informed im-
mediately!

A2 Planning of the Platforms
A2.1 General

The construction of the platform decking must be done professionally and according to valid safety
regulations.
The materials used must be of good quality.
Tripping hazards, unnecessary recesses and gaps in the decking are to be avoided or covered.
The distance between the decking and the building can be up to a maximum of 5 cm.
The gap between individual planks can be up to a maximum of 2 cm.
The distance to the decking of adjoining platforms can be a maximum of 2 cm. Larger gaps are to be
covered with firmly fixed boarding or by means of safety netting with a maximum mesh size of 2 cm.
Openings in the decking which are necessary for the work purposes must have correctly-fitted covers
which remain in position.
Safe working conditions for all anchor points are made possible by the positioning of intermediate
platforms.

A2.2 Planking

Attention:
In order to maintain the permissible cantilever of
the platform girders (OA2.3), the distance of the
bracket to the corner is to be minimized for over-
lapping platforms. Please note - a more exact
static verification of the anchors could be required!

There should be sufficient space between the
anchor axis and adjacent formwork girders so that
the leading anchor 13 can be mounted to the ad-
vancing bolt 13.6.

A4.2 Planning of the Climbing Sequence


During planning as well as compiling work instructions for the climbing sequence, the following points
must be considered:

• Special attention is to be paid to the corner area assembly of the intermediate platforms so that
the aggregate can be moved from one climbing unit to the next without any problems. For this, the
transition areas must be wide enough and without any steps.
• Especially on corner and internal platforms, the decking must be designed so that it does not col-
lide with the platforms or formwork of adjacent climbing units du ring the climbing procedure.
• Gangways and ladder access are planned in such a way so that safe entry to all climbing units is
guaranteed at all times.
• Planning the climbing sequence includes operations around the whole building. This includes de-
termining suitable positions for the hydraulic hoses and climbing the last climbing unit.
• A hydraulic plan shows how the climbing units are connected to the hydraulic hoses on the hy-
draulic aggregate.
Suitable measures are to be specified regarding the erection of barriers or other safety equipment on
open edges.

A4.3 Weight of the climbing unit
The size of climbing units can also be restricted
by the permissible load of the attachment point on
the strongback. In this respect, for platforms of
primary importance the weight has to be deter-
mined during the planning stage. Also when as-
sembling and dismantling climbing units, which
are moved with the self-climbing device, the per-
15.7 missible load of the attachment points must be
taken into consideration.
15.1
The weight of the climbing units is to be specified
in the general arrangement drawings.

• Assembly of a timber 15.5 as a compression
brace between the strongbacks 15.1
max. e = 25 cm
• Attachment point crane eye BR 2.5t 15.7 on

-+ permissible loads from Table 4


Tip:
Alternatively the climbing crossbeam RCS can be
used for moving the climbing unit. In this case the
attachment points have to be designed accord-
ingly.

used (planning and static verificaUon are required).

Tip:
In order to save time, we recommend using 2
sets of hydraulic hoses.
Then locate the second set in advance for the
following climbing sequence.
