The Self-Climbing System ACS-R with the one-sided reinforcement scaffold in advance.

ACS Self-Climbing System

Achieve shorter cycle times with hydraulic climbing.

The range of ACS self-climbing variants for facades, building cores, shaft structures as well as inclined bridge pylons make the construction of high concrete structures extremely fast, cost-effective and safe. The climbing units, comprising wall formwork and platforms, are lifted hydraulically.

Integrated hydraulic components enable multiple units to climb simultaneously, enabling high levels of productivity, fewer leading edges, and shorter cycle times to be achieved.

ACS in action

  • Crane-independent, quick-working operations

    Shuttering, striking and hydraulic climbing in a very fast work rhythm.


    Project: South Quay Plaza

  • Weather-independent working

    Comfortably-designed platforms with enclosures protect site personnel against wind and weather.


    Project: Mersey Gateway Bridge

  • Stable working platforms

    Working platforms can accommodate high loads, e.g. arising from material storage or placing boom masts.


    Project: Newfoundland Tower

Variants of the ACS self-climbing system

There are six types of the ACS Self Climbing System.

ACS R Self-Climbing System 

standard system with carriage and open formwork at the top for easy installation of the reinforcement

ACS P Platform System 

for high-rise building cores constructed in advance and tower-like structures with generously-sized storage and working areas

ACS G Realization with Gallows 

for concreting walls and slabs in one pour or for circular structures; both formwork sides are attached to the cantilevered gallows

ACS V Adjustable Version

for inclined structures such as bridge pylons or piers, with platforms always in a horizontal position

ACS S Shaft Formwork 

for stairways or small elevator shafts with a single climbing device positioned in the centre

ACS C Core Formwork 

for moving large-sized core formwork core including concrete placing boom and site equipment
