Cones for Climbing Formwork

Positioning Cone

Positioning Cones are used to create anchorage points for climbing formwork, brackets or similar structures. Since Positioning Cones can be nailed to any free space on the formwork skin from the inside thanks to the metal or plastic Nail Plate, the point is independent of existing anchor holes and the formwork skin does not have to be perforated.
Anchors such as Wobble, Hook, Fix or Plate Anchors can be used for bracing Positioning Cones. After stripping the formwork and unscrewing the Nail Plate, the brackets can either be fixed using a metric screw, or the Positioning Cone can be exchanged for a Climbing Cone the brackets can be fixed to.
We offer matching PE Sleeves to facilitate the unscrewing of Positioning Cones.

Climbing Cone

Since neither Threadbars nor concrete can absorb special shear forces/lateral forces that can for example occur when using climbing formwork, these forces must be deviated via Climbing Cones. Climbing Cones are used to replace Positioning Cones after formwork stripping.

Alternatively, Positioning cones can be used in combination with metrical screws matching in terms of length and grade.

1) Length according to customer requirements, standard lengths:
   M 24 = 60/80mm, M 27 = 60/80mm, M 33 = 100mm

The Hex Screw is screwed into the Positioning Cone, which remains in the concrete and absorbs the shear load (alternative solution to Climbing Cones).

Different systems can be used for anchoring climbing formwork (shear loads).
Upon request, we also develop and manufacture special solutions and products with individual design.
