There are many shoring systems and also a lot of working scaffold on the market.  But PERI UP is the only system which equally satisfies both aspects.  In particular, the high load-bearing capacity impressed me.

PERI solution

  • planning and delivery of formwork and scaffolding from one place
  • VARIO and TRIO for walls, MULTIFLEX for slabs and PERI UP as falsework
  • The birdcage scaffold with a basic grid of 1.50 m x 1.50 m could be halved/doubled to 75-cm and 3.00-m widths in areas of high loads, stair access integrated in falsework/working platform.
