VARIOKIT VBC Balanced Cantilever Carriage


The PERI VARIOKIT solution for balanced cantilever construction is a combination consisting of load-bearing, specially developed system components for this building method and VARIOKIT core components to complete the supporting structure. Based on the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit, the rentable system components are quickly available. The bal-anced cantilever equipment can be adapted flexibly to accommodate a wide range of bridge cross-sections and geometries.

Reducing construction time
thanks to concreting sections up to 5.75 m long, as well as high load-bearing capacity and integrated hydraulics

Cost-effective project solutions
by combining practice-oriented and rentable system components based on the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit and project-specific engineering

Safe access solutions
in all conditions due to compatibility with the PERI UP modular scaffolding kit

Technical Details

The balanced cantilever equipment transfers the fresh concrete loads into the supporting structure and moves the formwork from section to section. In order to accommodate the changes in the hollow box cross-section, a formwork solution consisting of VARIO girder wall formwork is used.

  • Concreting section weights up to 300 t using a standard application with two main frames
  • Section lengths up to 5.75 m possible
  • Maximum adaptability for transverse and longitudinal inclinations
  • For use in radii and spiral curves
  • Weight optimization due to a high level of material utilization
  • Exact, dimensionally-accurate concreting results through automatically setting up by means of integrated hydraulics
  • All modules can be re-used without any further processing
