Doka Announces Smart Edge Protection & Guardrail System
Doka recently announced the Smart Edge protection system, a new engineering solution designed to be installed at perimeter edges, internal openings, elevator shafts and stairs on high-rise construction sites.
A solution for increased safety, reduced labor and simplified site logistics, this guardrail system allows for all operations to be done by a single worker. It is lightweight, with the combined fence and post weight of only 22 kg. The installation, inspection and maintenance are 5 to 10 times faster compared to conventional 2x4 or cables.
There are only 3 basic parts to set up and take down, making logistics quick and simple. The same fence can be used either horizontally or vertically, for 106 cm or 231 cm high protection. Everything is supplied in one convenient pack – 25 fences, posts and zip ties – so there are no loose parts and the worksite remains safe and clean. Fences can easily be swung open and closed individually without modifications, repeated inspections and repairs.
Smart Edge provides additional safety with integrated green-red indicators that reliably confirm to installers and inspectors, at a glance, if the post is correctly installed. The length and angle are easily adjusted by changing the overlap of the fencing – premeasurement it not needed. Floor-to-ceiling heights can be reached with standard material from 2.23 m to 4.26 m. It can be used on both concrete and steel buildings.
The Smart Edge exceeds all applicable U.S. codes and regulations including OSHA, ANSI/ASSE and WISHA/WAC.
The Doka safety solutions support every single stage of the construction project. The company takes safety seriously right from the start of the project and its safety and formwork systems are perfectly coordinated in order to increase productivity and ensure top quality of building.
