ULMA has security systems certified by reputable companies, such as GSV, AENOR and AIDICO that guarantee the collective protection of workers on site, providing working platforms for wall and column formwork, access stairs to different areas of work, scaffolding and foot bridges for work at height and perimeter protection systems (interior hollows or edge of slab).
In keeping with the criteria of profitability and safety, the innovation of ULMA products is reflected, for example, in the development of CC-4 slab formwork system, whose aluminium features provide lightness to the formwork. This system is characterised by rapid assembly and dismantling thanks to the drophead design that allows the formwork to descend to 15cm, facilitating the recovery of material without it falling to the ground, ensuring workers' safety and preventing materials being damaged. As part of the verified collective protection, this system includes the under slab safety net that eliminates the risk of falling to the floor below during the process of positioning the panels and boards.
Another formwork system developed by ULMA in keeping with their solid commitment to safety is the RKS Rail Climbing Formwork System, which permits panels to be climbed without separating the structure from the wall, meaning that lifting work is carried out safely in any weather conditions.
The construction of high-rise buildings requires safety systems such as the HWS perimeter safety screen based on the MK system that offers great flexibility and adaptation to all types of geometries and configurations. This stopend system has the objective of protecting the entire perimeter of the building under construction by avoiding items falling to the exterior by positioning protective screens both on the floor where the formwork is being implemented and on the two floors immediately below. As the site progresses in height, the screens go up in level, using a crane or a hydraulic system. This safety system also offers excellent protection against harsh weather and protects workers from the effects of vertigo provoked by looking down from a height.
Each system developed by ULMA is accompanied by documentation such as user guides and technical assembly instructions that encourage correct, responsible and safe use by workers. These instructions are also complemented by regular training sessions run by the ULMA technical team on the use of formwork systems and scaffolding, both in the assembly process and their use on site. ULMA accompanies each client from the start of every project until its final construction, studying the options for each site, designing the technical solution for formwork and scaffolding and providing the most suitable construction material, together with the safety systems that help to prevent possible incidents during the construction on site.
