Doka introduces Smart Edge safe edge protection and guardrail system
Doka has announced the Smart Edge protection system, a new engineering solution designed to be installed at perimeter edges, internal openings, elevator shafts and stairs on high-rise construction sites.
A solution for increased safety, reduced labour and simplified site logistics, this guardrail system allows for all operations to be done by a single worker. It is lightweight, with the combined fence and post weight of only 48 pounds. The installation, inspection and maintenance are five to ten times faster as compared to conventional 2x4 or cables.
There are only three basic parts to set up and take down, making logistics quick and simple. The same fence can be used either horizontally or vertically, for 42- or 91-inch-high protection. Everything is supplied on one convenient pack – 25 fences, posts and zip ties – so there are no loose parts and the worksite remains safe and clean. Fences can easily be swung individually open and closed without modifications, repeated inspections and repairs.
Smart Edge provides additional safety with integrated green-red indicators that reliably confirm to installers and inspectors, at a glance, if the post is correctly installed. The length and angle are easily adjusted by changing the overlap of the fencing – premeasurement it not needed. Floor-to-ceiling heights can be reached with standard material from 7 feet 4 inches to 14 feet. It can be used on both concrete and steel buildings.
The Smart Edge exceeds all applicable US codes and regulations including OSHA, ANSI/ASSE and WISHA/WAC.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
