Perimeter Protection & Core Formwork Solution
- 41 story high-rise
EFCO’s POWER SHIELD was assembled off-site and delivered to site ready to hang on the perimeter of the tower. This meant the gangs were ready to be quickly picked directly off the truck and flown into place with no additional work.
Protection From The Elements and Look-Out Decks
EFCO’s POWER SHIELD gangs covered four floors with two floors fully screened to provide protection from the elements. Cantilevered look-out decks were provided to assist in the cycling of equipment.
Formwork Stays Attached To Walls For Easy Cycling
The GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM enables the formwork to stay attached to the wall and cycle easily, even on windy days, reducing the number of days lost due to weather.
EFCO’s edge protection system really delivered at Old Town Park Phase 3. The gangs were completely preassembled, delivered on time, picked right off the truck and hung quickly. This really saved labor and crane time.
Tim Flores, Superintendent
We were fortunate to have great partners in EFCO in developing the new Power Shield safety system. A lot of hard work went into the planning and implementation of the system on Old Town Park Phase 3. We are proud of the great job by our team, and appreciate the collaboration with EFCO to make this job as safe and efficient as possible.
