Slab formwork is all in the head.
The SKYMAX Prop Head adapts to all positions under the slab formwork.

SKYMAX Panel Slab Formwork

The versatile, safe slab formwork 

The new slab formwork SKYMAX follows the abiding set of PERI principles of a flexible application with only a minimum of system components and maximum safety. One special feature of the slab formwork: The slab panel can be supported at any point with only one single Prophead. As an alternative SKYMAX could be used for early striking with the Drophead.

In order to be able to meet the continuously increasing safety requirements when forming slabs, PERI has developed the SKYMAX system whereby each component can be mounted from a safe position on the installation area. The concept ensures a higher degree of efficiency with low expense values – with, at the same time, a range of applications that has previously not been implemented.

The standard panel, with a width of 1.00 m and a length of 2.00 m, can be used with PEP Ergo Props for floor heights of up to 3.50 m. The grid arrangement selected is compatible with the PERI UP Flex Modular Scaffolding which is used for larger floor heights. Thereby, the large-sized panels have a weight of 15 kg/m². SKYMAX is optimized for slab thicknesses up to 30 cm while maintaining the surface evenness of Line 7 according to DIN 18202. With additional support in the centre, 55 cm slab thicknesses can be realized.

The well-thought out combination of a new prop head and appropriate toothed panel edges allow a change of direction as well as enabling the panels to be moved to each other. In the process, all support positions can be realized with a single prophead. A compensation panel mounted from below, a matching drophead to allow early striking, along with a longitudinal beam for a prop arrangement of 2.00 m x 2.00 m complement the system.

In order to achieve the required efficiency for large slab areas, slab tables measuring 4.00 m x 6.00 m can also be quickly and easily realized with SKYMAX standard panels – even on the construction site. In addition, only a minimum of additional components are required, which can also be rented. This ensures minimized investment, logistics and transport costs.

Main advantages of the new formwork system

Completely mounted from below

Each component can be installed from the slab below, the formwork is immediately accessible.

Only 2 prop heads

The SKYMAX Prop Head adapts to all positions under the slab formwork; in addition to this, a Drophead facilitates early striking.

Various assembly versions in one system

  • 2.00 m x 1.00 m large slab areas with direct support of the panels
  • 2,00 m x 2,00 m large slab areas with additional main beams
  • 4.00 m x 6.00 m large slab tables with some rental additional system components

Focus on safety

SKYMAX was developed with the main focus on providing the highest level of safety. All system components of the innovative slab formwork can be pivoted upwards with site personnel in a safe position on the level below. With SKYMAX, PERI offers a future-proof slab formwork. 

The SKYMAX Prophead suits all positions

  • in the slab area at the intersection of 4 panels
  • in front of a rising wall in the panel corner or reaching over 2 panels
  • for two adjacent panels as a centre support.
