Doka UniKit: Smart infrastructure solutions via plug & play

UniKit is a universal engineering kit for heavy loads developed by Doka for improved safety and efficiency in infrastructure construction. The rentable system with modular standard components offers cost-effective shoring solutions matching formwork and customised Doka services – all from a single source.

UniKit is a modular shoring solution that can be used for both small and large construction projects in the infrastructure sector. It can be individually adapted to customer needs and saves both time and manpower. Building bridges, tunnels and power plants is practically going to be child’s play with UniKit. Speaking of child's play: the modular system is indeed quite similar to the colourful building blocks of our childhood – at least when you consider all the numerous possible combinations. The logically structured modular system grid allows for a wide range of different applications. When paired with Doka formwork technology and the other services offered by Doka, UniKit is the perfect companion for infrastructure projects of all sizes.

Colourful variety

By means of plug & play, the realization of construction projects is almost as easy as playing with the colourful building blocks. The UniKit system includes several versatile standard elements that can be optimally combined: the primary and secondary beam, the tower 480, and the truss 1250.

The coupleable UniKit primary and secondary beams are perfect all-rounders when it comes to high load capacity and safe load transfer on the construction site. Not only in terms of height, but also in terms of span width. They are made with higher steel grades than other, similar products, which means that fewer beams are required – even for extremely high loads. This ensures higher access possibilities and shorter crane times. It also means that less space is needed on the construction site for pre-assembly or storing materials.

The UniKit tower 480 can support almost anything. With a load capacity of 480kN/leg, it can handle even the most challenging shoring constructions in the infrastructure sector. Additionally, spans of 15 to 21 metres can be easily achieved with the truss 1250. The components of the tower and the truss can be connected by means of a particularly innovative plug & play system. Where once laborious and time-consuming screw connections were necessary, a unique 6-pin plug now ensures that the components can be connected quickly and securely.

Modular and systematic

The intelligent modular system is both economical and sustainable – in more ways than one. For one thing, all UniKit standard elements can be rented. Not only does this reduce investment costs, this system also offers every advantage in terms of sustainability since all the parts can be reused. In addition, reducing the number of interfaces minimises the time and effort involved in coordinating between different suppliers. Why? Because Doka can supply everything from a single source. From shoring to formwork to engineering and logistics – at the end of the day, nothing stands in the way of ensuring that a project runs efficiently.
