Slipform construction ascends to new heights.
VERTICAL CONCRETE SLIPFORM CONSTRUCTION
Formwork engineering at its finest: the vertical slipform system allows for the construction of jointless concrete structures, all with short construction times and high daily rates. As is the case in previous years, the slipforming method continues to be regarded as a reliable and proven formwork method in 2023, making it the go-to method for constructing towers, chimneys, high-rise cores, silos, bridge pylons and other industrial structures with exceptionally high walls made from reinforced concrete with a strong vertical orientation.
Engineering Principles of Slipforming.
The formwork is lifted parallel to the reinforcement and surface.
A new building is constructed by continuously adding concrete and reinforcing steel.
The formwork is raised atop climbing tubes by means of hydraulic jacks.
Concrete (15‒20 cm) is added without cold joints for monolithic structures.
The speed of construction depends on the concrete (acceleration, deceleration or even a stop is possible).
24h or 12h per day
The structure can be slipformed continuously for either 24 hours or 12 hours per day.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
Cylindrical structures, including changes to wall thickness and post-tensioned buttresses, are possible using the slipform construction method. Simultaneous lifting of steel roofs in parallel with the slipform work saves the customer time and money and ensures that the structure is ready when you are.
Our successful slipform construction projects are all over the world.
