Doka boosts construction site safety with Xsafe Catch Fan

Doka has introduced its new Xsafe Catch Fan to improve safety on construction sites. The system can be deployed and re-positioned quickly, in just a few simple steps.

Two clever mechanisms are at the heart of Doka’s development. In combination with the innovative suspension of nets, the easy-lock system enables efficient installation via a snap mechanism of the floor shoe. A safety lever swiftly secures the vertical tube of the Xsafe Catch Fan in place; previously, this had to be done by fastening couplers.

With the quick-folding mechanism, the net is folded from the upper slab by simply pulling on a rope. This now no longer requires two workers working simultaneously on two levels, but only one. Doka’s new folding rope enables the net to be folded by just one user, saving manpower and crane time during re-positioning and cleaning.

The vertical extensions of the Xsafe Catch Fan are specifically designed to meet the customer’s needs. Compared to common round tube-in-tube designs, the square tubes no longer require strenuous hole alignment when securing with bolts.

Once assembled on the ground, the Xsafe Catch Fan can be easily lifted and quickly re-positioned from floor to floor without adjustment to the vertical extensions.

”With the development of the Xsafe Catch Fan, we identified the potential to provide more safety on construction sites. Customers benefit from efficient and simple workflows, allowing them to focus fully on the essentials of day-to-day construction site operations," said Thomas Lattacher, Doka’s product manager for Xsafe Catch Fan.
