The Leda climbing system is a specialised type of formwork for vertical concrete structures that rise with the building process. The highly versatile system, is a very effective solution for buildings that are very repetitive in nature (such as towers or multistorey skyscrapers).
Usually, a climbing formwork system consists of the formwork and working platform for cleaning/fixing of the formwork, steel fixing and concreting. The formwork supports itself on the concrete cast earlier so it does not rely on support or access from other parts of the building or permanent works.
A simple climbing formwork is typically used on buildings of five storeys or more. Full self climbing systems are generally used on structures with more than 12 floor levels. However, a combination of crane-handled and self climbing system platforms is viable on lower structures.
One of the most distinct advantages of using automatic or full self climbing system is that through crane-independent forming, striking and climbing, the work process is optimised on the construction site and makes them independent of each other. This allows the planned operational sequences to be maintained and can even be accelerated, regardless of weather conditions.
