HWS Perimeter Safety Screens

Extremely flexible perimeter safety screen that adapts to any building geometry and configuration need. Designed for high-rise buildings, the system can be hydraulic or crane-lifted.
Extremely flexible perimeter safety screen that adapts to any building geometry and configuration need. Designed for high-rise buildings, the system can be hydraulic or crane-lifted.

The HWS perimeter safety screen is a self-climbing system for ensuring perimeter safety during the construction of high-rise buildings. Based on the MK system, it is versatile, it can easily be adapted to different geometries and has various configurations according to needs: 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.

Main functions:

  • Prevents people or objects falling from the slabs
  • Offers excellent protection against harsh weather
  • Avoids vertigo
  • Provides a platform for tasks over the slab edge thickness

Configuration examples:

  • HWS with storage and material lifting platforms at different levels and working platform
  • Basic section with platform for material unloading
  • Debris section: extension of the slab as perimeter working and material storage platform. It avoids falling debris when removing formwork tables and provides a large advertising area towards the street
  • Access stairways in HWS
  • HWS with working platform
  • Straight section
  • MK system flexibility, adaptable to different geometries and configuration needs
  • Common accessories with other MK solutions
  • Allows the use of different types of safety screens: board, net, polycarbonate, sheet, mesh, etc.
  • Material lifting platforms can be part of the windshield panels
  • Provides access between the last floors of the building
  • Platform for works at the slab edge
  • The system can be raised by means of hydraulic system or crane
  • Allows three possible types of anchorage: anchorage on slab, slab-end anchoring system, anchorage on wall
  • Adapts well to the geometry of irregular slabs, including geometries varying in height
  • Encloses the entire perimeter without leaving any gaps
  • Provides large vertical surfaces for promotional messages
