GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM® (GRS)

GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM
  • Flipper lock

    The system features a Flipper Lock mechanism to secure the platform at each level.

  • Form adjustment

    The GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM Roll-back Assembly provides horizontal and vertical form adjustment as well as roll-back. Thrust bolts at the front of the roll-back permit 4" of vertical and 3" of horizontal form adjustment.

  • Ratchet system

    The GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM ratchet mechanism is used to move the form set-up in and out and also lock it in place to resist wind.

  • Roll-Back Assembly

    EFCO’S GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM Roll-back Assembly permits the formwork to be rolled forward and backward 30". Using CAM Rollers for smooth operation, the formwork can be pushed back by operators. If working against the wind, the roll-back can be ratcheted backwards.

  • Scaffold Brackets

    Attach to the frame and E-BEAM® for quick installation. Used in conjunction with contractor’s scaffold planks, handrails, and toe boards, they provide a safe work scaffold for easy access to form hardware and for pouring operations.

  • Z-BEAM

    The EFCO Z-BEAM is a modular lightweight stringer beam with a moment end connection that provides the full strength of the beam for maximum versatility. The GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM also accommodates the use of double Z-BEAMS or SUPER STUDS as stringers, for wider frame spacing.

Jump System Formwork Solutions

The EFCO Guided Rail System® will climb the wall on a pair of high-strength, steel rails which support the all-in-one form panel and working platform. Rails are added at ground level to safely guide the set-up to the height requirements for your project and to allow a crane to lift the set-up while continuously attached to the wall.

Proven Safety of the GRS®

Safety is the priority at EFCO. The anchor capacity complies with industry-standard safety factors. The GRS can attach to a crane at the platform level. The platform width is 8′ and the extra workspace allows for greater productivity and safety. The platform design also minimizes deck lumber, using a contractor supplied 3/4″ plywood and wood rails.

HOW DOES THE GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM® INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY?

The 8’-0” platforms and 2’-6” roll-back access improves cycling productivity by providing enough space to clean and oil forms immediately after each lift, to tie reinforcing steel, and to attach block-outs and reveal strips.

HOW DOES THE GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM® IMPROVE ACCURACY?

The reusable anchor shoes mounted to the wall ensure correct placement at each level, providing horizontal and vertical form adjustment. Fewer parts to assemble, easy to operate and maintain. This requires less labor, faster cycling of forms and fewer crane picks. This feature gives a labor-saving benefit for setting and stripping. Tight precision face sheet joints automatically give quality concrete finishes.

IS THE GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM® EASY TO USE?

Yes. Beginning at 10’ above the footing, the EFCO GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM forms are rolled back for cycling to the next level and then cleaned, oiled and the rebar is placed. The rack and pinion mechanism of the roll-back feature is operated with a ratchet. This provides safe and easy removal of the form from the wall.
