Shoring Tower MDS – the Tower with system-integrated Safety

Peri presented the Shoring Tower MDS for the first time at the Intermat 2012 in France which was followed by the international launch at bauma 2013 in Munich. The shoring tower´s distinguishing feature is that scaffolders are secured against falling in all situations without requiring any additional equipment.

Shoring towers currently available on the market only partially meet the requirements with regard to optimal safe assembly. The Shoring Tower MDS with its concept of mandatory working levels closes this gap: all levels of the shoring tower are automatically installed with protection provided by the guardrail in advance, and likewise during dismantling. In this way, the safety of the users is guaranteed during all mounting situations. The steel decks lock automatically in place after being inserted, and removal from below is just not possible. The decking is an integral part and the central element in the Peri Up Rosett Flex Shoring Tower MDS. It accelerates the handling whilst simultaneously ensuring a high level of safety.

In addition to the standard components of the proven Peri Up scaffolding, the decking is the only newly developed part used for the assembly of the Shoring Tower MDS. This also makes the solution extremely economical.
