Systems designed to protect the leading edge of floors under construction
UBS provides protection systems of virtually every kind for any application, from high-capacity sidewalk, shed, and vertical perimeter protection systems to custom horizontal netting systems.
The UBS Cocoon is a patented system designed to protect the leading edge of floors under construction. Working closely with major contractors in the New York area, where typical concrete construction follows a two-day pour cycle (a new floor is poured every second day) the system was designed to support these aggressive construction schedules. The UBS Cocoon enables projects to be built more safely, more quickly, and more economically than ever.
With the Cocoon, a crane is only needed during the initial installation and final dismantle. All raises are done utilizing manual lifting devices, to keep the construction on schedule and to minimize the impact on other trades.
