IntroductionElementary safety warningsUser target groups

▪ This manual is aimed at all persons who will be work-ing with the Doka product or system that it describes. It contains information on the standard design for setting up this system, and on correct, compliant uti-lisation of the system.

▪ All persons working with the product described herein must be familiar with the contents of this man-ual and with all the safety instructions it contains.

▪ Persons who are incapable of reading and under-standing this booklet, or who can do so only with dif-ficulty, must be instructed and trained by the cus-tomer.

▪ The customer is to ensure that the information mate-rials provided by Doka (e.g. User Information book-lets, Instructions for Assembly and Use, Operating Instruction manuals, plans etc.) are available to all users, and that they have been made aware of them and have easy access to them at the usage location.

▪ In the relevant technical documentation and form-work utilisation plans, Doka shows the workplace safety precautions that are necessary in order to use the Doka products safely in the usage situations shown. In all cases, users are obliged to ensure compliance with national laws, Standards and rules throughout the entire project and to take appropriate additional or alternative workplace safety precautions where necessary.

Hazard assessment

▪ The customer is responsible for drawing up, docu-menting, implementing and continually updating a hazard assessment at every job-site. This document serves as the basis for the site-spe-cific hazard assessment, and for the instructions given to users on how to prepare and utilise the sys-tem. It does not substitute for these, however.

Remarks on this document

▪ This manual can also be used as a generic method statement or incorporated with a site-specific method statement.

▪ Many of the illustrations in this booklet show the situation during formwork assembly and are therefore not always complete from the safety point of view.Any safety accessories not shown in these illustra-tions must still be used by the customer, in accord-ance with the applicable rules and regulations.

▪ Further safety instructions, especially warnings, will be found in the individual sections of this document!

Planning

▪ Provide safe workplaces for those using the form-work (e.g. for when it is being erected/dismantled, modified or repositioned etc). It must be possible to get to and from these workplaces via safe access routes!

▪ If you are considering any deviation from the details and instructions given in this booklet, or any application which goes beyond those described in the booklet, then revised static cal-culations must be produced for checking, as well as supplementary assembly instructions.

Regulations; industrial safety

▪ All laws, Standards, industrial safety regulations and other safety rules applying to the utilisation of our products in the country and/or region in which you are operating must be observed at all times.

▪ If a person or object falls against, or into, the side-guard component and/or any of its accessories, the component affected may only continue in use after it has been inspected and passed by an expert.

Rules applying during all phases of the assignment:

▪ The customer must ensure that this product is erected and dismantled, reset and generally used for its intended purpose in accordance with the applica-ble laws, Standards and rules, under the direction and supervision of suitably skilled persons. These persons' mental and physical capacity must not in any way be impaired by alcohol, medicines or drugs.

▪ Doka products are technical working appliances which are intended for industrial/commercial use only, always in accordance with the respective Doka User Information booklets or other technical docu-mentation authored by Doka.

▪ The stability of all components and units must be ensured during all phases of the construction work!

▪ The functional/technical instructions, safety warn-ings and loading data must all be strictly observed and complied with. Failure to do so can cause acci-dents and severe (even life-threatening) damage to health, as well as very great material damage.

▪ Fire-sources are not permitted anywhere near the formwork. Heating appliances are only allowed if properly and expertly used, and set up a safe dis-tance away from the formwork.

▪ The work must take account of the weather condi-tions (e.g. risk of slippage). In extreme weather, steps must be taken in good time to safeguard the equipment, and the immediate vicinity of the equip-ment, and to protect employees.

▪ All connections must be checked regularly to ensure that they still fit properly and are functioning cor-rectly. It is very important to check all screw-type connec-tions and wedge-clamped joins whenever the con-struction operations require (particularly after excep-tional events such as storms), and to tighten them if necessary.

▪ It is strictly forbidden to weld Doka products – in par-ticular anchoring/tying components, suspension components, connector components and castings etc. – or otherwise subject them to heating. Welding causes serious change in the microstruc-ture of the materials from which these components are made. This leads to a dramatic drop in the failure load, representing a very great risk to safety.The only articles which are allowed to be welded are those for which the Doka literature expressly points out that welding is permitted.

Assembly

▪ The equipment/system must be inspected by the customer before use, to ensure that it is in suitable condition. Steps must be taken to rule out the use of any components that are damaged, deformed, or weakened due to wear, corrosion or rot.

▪ Combining our formwork systems with those of other manufacturers could be dangerous, risking damage to both health and property. If you intend to combine different systems, please contact Doka for advice first.

▪ The equipment/system must be assembled and erected in accordance with the applicable laws, Standards and rules by suitably skilled personnel of the customer's, having regard to any and all required safety inspections.

▪ It is not permitted to modify Doka products; any such modifications constitute a safety risk.

Erecting the formwork

▪ Doka products and systems must be set up so that all loads acting upon them are safely transferred!

Pouring

▪ Do not exceed the permitted fresh-concrete pres-sures. Over-high pouring rates overload the form-work, cause greater deflection and risk breakage.

Striking the formwork

▪ Do not strike the formwork until the concrete has reached sufficient strength and the person in charge has given the order for the formwork to be struck!

▪ When striking the formwork, never use the crane to break concrete cohesion. Use suitable tools such as timber wedges, special pry-bars or system features such as Framax stripping corners.

▪ When striking the formwork, do not endanger the stability of any part of the structure, or of any scaf-folding, platforms or formwork that is still in place!

Transporting, stacking and storing

▪ Observe all regulations applying to the handling of formwork and scaffolding. In addition, the Doka slinging means must be used - this is a mandatory requirement.

▪ Remove any loose parts or fix them in place so that they cannot be dislodged or fall free!

▪ All components must be stored safely, following all the special Doka instructions given in the relevant sections of this manual!

Maintenance

▪ Only original Doka components may be used as spare parts. Repairs may only be carried out by the manufacturer or authorised facilities.

Miscellaneous

We reserve the right to make alterations in the interests of technical progress.

Instructions for assembly and useErecting the formwork

Putting up the floor props➤ Roughly adjust the height of the floor prop, using the

fastening clamp.

➤ Insert the 4-way head DF15 into the prop.

➤ Place primary and secondary beams along the edges.The marks on the beams show you the maximum spacings: - 5 marks for primary beams - 6 marks (3 x 2) for props held in a removable folding tripod

➤ Put up each removable folding tripod.

➤ Put the prop into the tripod and fix it in place with the clamping bracket (tap this with the hammer). Before anybody steps onto the formwork, check again to make sure that the props have been cor-rectly fixed in the tripods.

Setting up tripods in corners or against walls

If it is not possible to completely unfold the legs of the tripod – e.g. at the edges of a structure or at floor break-throughs etc. – we recommend fastening this tripod to an adjacent floor prop instead, where there is room for the legs to be completely unfolded.

Make sure that the nut is in the right position. To back off the prop, it must be possible to lower the nut by at least another 4 cm, by turn-ing it with the fastening clamp.

CAUTION➤ If you transport floor props with the 4-way

heads still attached, you must secure these with a Spring-locked connecting pin 16 mm to prevent them dropping out. This is partic-ularly important when they are transported in the horizontal.

Inserting the primary beams➤ Using beam-forks, place the primary beams into the

4-way heads.

The 4-way heads can hold both single beams (on edge-of-room props) and double beams (at over-laps).

➤ Adjust the primary beams to the correct floor-slab height.

Placing the secondary beams on the primary beams➤ Use the beam forks to place the secondary beams

on the primary beams, with an overlap.Maximum spacing of secondary beams: 1 mark

WARNING➤ It is not permitted to set down any loads on

the floor-slab formwork (e.g. beams, form-work sheets, reinforcement steel) until after the intermediate props have been set up!

▪ Wheel-around scaffold DF:- collapsible wheelaround platform made

of light alloy- variable working heights of up to 3.50 m

(max. platform height 1.50 m)- width of scaffold: 0.75 m- When work is being carried out near

drop-off edges (i.e. at a distance of < 2 m), the 'Wheel-around scaffold DF accessory set' (consisting of a toeboard and intermediate guardrail) is needed.

- Follow the directions in the User Informa-tion booklet!

Especially in edge zones, 'Bracing frames Eco' can be used as a sturdy alternative to 'Remov-able folding tripods'.

Planks can be attached to the floor props as diagonal braces, using the Bracing clamp B.

➤ If it is planned to lay the panels on the sec-ondary beams working from below, always lay only as many secondary beams in place as are needed for placing the next row of panels.

Be sure to place a beam (or double beam) wherever there is to be a joint between the panels.

☞ ➤ Use personal fall arrest systems to protect against fall hazards when working on unse-cured slab-edges (e.g. Doka personal fall-arrest set).

Where necessary (e.g. edge zones), secure the form-ply with nails.Recommended nail lengths ▪ Sheet thickness 18 - 21 mm - approx. 50 mm

☞ Windproofing ▪ For increased stability, in larger rooms, the

full erection sequence of "primary beams + secondary beams + formwork sheets" should be carried out progressively for suc-cessive sub-areas of the room. When doing this, provide suitable bracing to walls or columns.

▪ If there is any risk of the formwork being blown over, all free-standing, non-enclosed areas of slab formwork must be secured dur-ing work-breaks and when work finishes for the day.

▪ Horizontal forces at exposed slab-edges, drop beams or steps in ceiling slabs must be restrained by strutting or back-stays.

AdaptabilityClosures and adjustments

Infill zones are solved within the system - with no spe-cial accessories needed. The necessary adaptation is made by overlapping the Doka beams and inserting strips of formwork sheeting.

Grid and flexibility - in one system

Dokaflex also adapts to difficult layouts.

Dokaflex 15 system components – also for slab thicknesses of over 15 cmOnly one system in use on the site

Up to a slab thickness of 15 cm, no structural design work is needed. However, it is also possible to compute the exact quantities – of the same system components – that will be needed for any given thickness of slab, with reference to the table. In this way, only as much formwork equipment is used as is really needed, as dictated by the slab load.

On the site, the easy-to-use slide-rule is ideal for deter-mining the permissible spacing of primary beams and props.

The table allows for a live load of 1.5 kN/m2. Mid-span deflection has been limited to l/500.

With edge drop-beam

Supported by load-bearing tower

The Load-bearing tower Staxo 40 system can be readily combined with Dokaflex 15 for forming drop beams.

Supported by Dokaflex 15 and Bracing frames Eco

Using 'Bracing frames Eco' with 'Diagonal crosses 9.xxx' increases the stability of the floor props. This allows drop-beam constructions to be formed more quickly at slab-edges, and provides greater safety dur-ing system set-up.

WARNING➤ For work at dangerous heights, the second-

ary-beam elements with the working plat-forms must be preassembled on the ground.

➤ Where working platforms are erected on cantilevering floor-slab formwork, the form-work must be secured against accidental lift-out.

➤ Secondary beams with stop-end formwork must be secured against horizontal pull-out.

➤ In addition, put up a protection platform on the structure, e.g. Folding platform K
