SCS Climbing System


The SCS Climbing System is predominantly used for single-sided applications, i.e. with non-tied wall formwork. The loads resulting from the fresh concrete pressure are thereby transferred via the brackets into the previous concreting section by climbing anchors. Typical areas of applications for the SCS Climbing System are dams, locks, cooling towers, bunkers and strongroom vaults, pier heads, and tunnels. With very few additional components, the brackets are also suitable for forming with anchored wall formwork.

Large, craneable climbing units

due to the particularly high load-bearing capacity of the brackets with good utilization of the anchoring

Material-optimized solution

with the same formwork and components for the starter and subsequent standard cycles

Safe, horizontal working areas

through inclinable platforms which can easily be adapted to suit inclined structural elements

Cost-effective also for two-sided applications

through a minimum of additional components for a high level of material utilization and reduced logistical requirements

Technical Details

  • Support structure for supporting non-tied, single sided wall formwork
  • With the SCS system, two bracket units together with one PERI wall formwork section form a cranemovable platform unit.
  • Optionally, VARIO GT 24 Girder Wall Formwork as well as TRIO or MAXIMO Panel Formwork can be used.
  • The SCS Climbing System has been optimized for a concreting height of 3.00 m (vertical applications) or 2.50 m (forward-inclined applications).
  • With only a minimum of additional components, the use with anchored formwork is also possible for walls up to 6.00 m high.
  • Addition of a finishing platform possible
  • Separate adaptable working platform for use on inclined structures; concreting and finishing platforms can be tilted by ±15° und ±30°


SCS 190

The Bracket SCS 190 has a width of 1.90 m and requires only a minimum of space as well as being a more cost-effective alternative. The formwork is simply tilted when striking.

SCS 250

The SCS 250 has a width of 2.50 m and is equipped with a formwork carriage. With this, the wall formwork can be retracted up to 79 cm (valid for MAXIMO and TRIO) or up to 63 cm (valid for VARIO GT 24) without requiring a crane. This provides sufficient space for the reinforcement work, assembly of the scaffold anchoring as well shuttering and striking of box outs.

SCS Starter Brace Frame

For the first casting segment, a starter brace frame is used while diagonal anchoring transfers the loads into the bottom slab.
The SCS Starter Brace Frame is designed in such a way that the strongback, spindle and formwork can also be used in the next casting segments with the climbing bracket.

SCS two-sided application

With only a minimum of additional components, the SCS Climbing Bracket can also be used for anchored wall formwork up to 6.00 m high. This ensures increased material utilization of the system components and thus enhanced cost-effectiveness of the investment.
