RCS Max is part of the RCS rail climbing system from Peri. Its new components, the RCS Max hydraulic unit and the RCS Max drive rails can be easily combined with the existing RCS material to optimise the performance of the system.
The focus at this year’s bauma will be on the new C and CL drive rails, the cylinder of which is now firmly connected to the system and climbs along with it. This makes cumbersome conversions a thing of the past, saving valuable time and costs on the construction site. The vertical loads can be transferred via a climbing shoe into the already cured concreting section, resulting in faster concreting cycles. And with reduced cylinder cycles, the RCS Max now needs fewer steps to reach the next position.
For excellent safety, the decentralised hydraulics enables synchronous climbing of all platforms. This eliminates fall edges and reduces potential sources of danger for site personnel. Smart safety features such as the dead man’s switch, an automatic stop in case of overload and collision as well as an emergency stop switch on each platform round off the safety concept. Complete monitoring of the climbing process is also possible by light signals on the RCS Max hydraulic unit and by the display.
The SCS climbing system is another highlight from Peri. Its standardised bracket system for single and double-sided applications is also based on a modular principle, allowing for optimal adaptation to project-specific requirements and geometries.
In particular, the ability to combine with components of the Variokit engineering construction kit and the Peri Up scaffolding kit as well as the small number of components, make the SCS climbing system an economical and flexible solution for engineering structures.
With the pre-assembled platforms, the SCS system can be quickly ready for use in a wide range of applications. Its high load-bearing capacity ensures rapid construction progress with few climbing sections. Two console bracket discs form a crane-movable unit together with Peri wall formwork.
In addition, the upgraded components of Peri’s VGK work platform offer new application possibilities in structural and transport engineering. Apart from their use as cantilevered parapet brackets, these now enable even more flexible use of the console bracket solution.
Especially with pier heads or complex geometries, the VGK can be used as lightweight work platforms for walls that slope forwards and backwards. The platforms are available in three different widths to meet a variety of requirements.
The VGK can also now be used as a work platform in building construction. To deliver a safe construction process, the comparatively light components can be pre-assembled on the ground and suspended from the structure as a complete platform unit.
In the area of 3D modelling, Peri offers augmented and virtual reality with the Extended Experience App. In this way, the models can be optimally integrated into the planning and construction process. The level of detail reflects the design planning precisely; plans can be walked through virtually and even projected into the physical environment.
Other innovative solutions from Peri include the Variokit VIL incremental launching facility, which provides a cost-effective production of external, internal and slab formwork for bridges using the incremental launching method. The optimised shuttering and striking mechanism of the slab formwork via roller dropheads releases the formwork more quickly for time-critical work in the construction sequence and thus ensures accelerated workflows.
Thanks to the cross-swivel head, the slab props of the mobile VIL slab formwork solution can also be folded up easily – and do not have to be moved by hand. During the moving process, the roller dropheads automatically bring the formwork back into concreting position.
Furthermore, Peri’s mega construction kit is made up of system components from the Peri Up scaffolding kit and the Variokit engineering construction kit. Both construction kits are based on the metric assembly and coupling grid of 12.5 cm, 25 cm and 50 cm, and thus can cope with almost any building geometry or required load transfer.
Despite their small number of core components, both construction kits provide a wide range of assembly and design variants when combined, at a low investment cost. The fully rentable components make the mega construction kit a particularly economical customised solution for building, bridge and tunnel construction as well as transport and plant engineering.
Peri will also showcase its VTC tunnel formwork carriage. This is based on components of the Variokit engineering construction kit, delivering a high degree of flexibility to the users.
