The HWS perimeter safety screen is a self-climbing system for ensuring perimeter safety during the construction of high-rise buildings.

HWS covers the perimeter of the level under construction as well as the two levels below. As the building rises, the HWS is lifted by crane or by a hydraulic power unit. The HWS is adaptable to different geometries and configurations depending on project requirements: straight section, with working platforms, debris section, with option to lift materials to different levels, with access stairs, etc.

The HWS is designed to protect workers against harsh weather and prevent them, or objects, falling from the edge of the slab and also to protect pedestrians from falling debris. 

In short, this is a self-climbing system with a multitude of applications that provides maximum safety and great performance at height.

The HWS (Hydraulic Windshield System) is another solution based on the MK system (standard walers with simple connecting elements); which focuses on perimeter safety for high rise buildings.

    • Prevents falls from the slab edge.
    • Excellent protection against inclement weather.
    • Reduces the visual height effect.
    • Versatility of the MK system.
    • Configurable cross-section: working platform levels, dimensions, material unloading platforms and type of protective sheathing.
    • Mesh protective sheathing.
    • Allows for the use of exterior material lifting platforms.
    • Platform for work on the slab edge.
    • Hydraulic self-climbing system operates without crane assistance.
    • Can be anchored to slab or wall.
    • Adapts well to the geometry of irregular slabs.
    • Completely encloses the entire perimeter.
    • Provides large surfaces at height for promotional messages.
    • Accessories shared with other MK solutions.

Anchorage of HWS to slab or wall:

    • Slab anchor system.
    • Slab edge anchor system.
    • Wall anchor system.
