Doka has announced the Smart Edge protection system, an engineering solution designed to be installed at perimeter edges, internal openings, elevator shafts and stairs on high-rise construction sites.
A solution for increased safety, reduced labor and simplified site logistics, this guardrail system allows for all operations to be done by a single worker. With the combined fence and post weight, it weighs 48 pounds.
There are three basic parts to set up and take down, making logistics simple. The same fence can be used either horizontally or vertically, for 42- or 91-inches high protection. Everything is supplied in one pack – 25 fences, posts and zip ties – so there are no loose parts and the worksite remains safe and clean. Fences can be swung individually open and closed without modifications, repeated inspections and repairs.
Smart Edge provides additional safety with integrated green-red indicators that confirm to installers and inspectors, at a glance, if the post is correctly installed. The length and angle are adjusted by changing the overlap of the fencing – premeasurement it not needed. Floor-to-ceiling heights can be reached with standard material from 7-foot 4-inches to 14-feet. It can be used on both concrete and steel buildings. The Smart Edge exceeds all applicable U.S. codes and regulations including OSHA, ANSI/ASSE and WISHA/WAC.
