Product Overview

Ascent-formwork is a new guided climbing formwork system from RMD Australia. RMD developed Ascent-F with our customers to provide cutting edge equipment, which speeds cycle times and reduces labour costs. Ascent-F can also be operated hydraulically, which saves on crane costs and means you can operate in high wind or when the crane is being used elsewhere significantly improving cycle times.


  • Ascent-F is a new guided climbing formwork system developed to speed cycle times and reduce labour costs
  • Ascent-F can be lifted in high winds. If there's no crane or is it's being used somewhere else on the project, the Ascent hydraulic system can be used avoiding lost project time
  • Wall brackets can be quickly pre-mounted on the cast-in wall anchor before adding the connecting bolt. This is a fast job for a single worker


  • Ascent-F masts are safely extended as the equipment rises, giving significant time, labour and site space advantages
  • Safety and peace of mind for workers, because the highly visible Ascent Latch connects securely with the Ascent Wall Brackets. ELEV (Electronic Latch Engagement Verification) system further enhances operator confidence
  • Ascent components have been developed with manual handling and safety in mind. Pre-assembly of equipment can be carried out without cranes at ground level


  • Suitable for a diverse range of projects. Constructs piers and straight or curved walls sloping by up to 20 degrees
  • At the end of the job, Ascent platforms can be removed by raising, lowering or moving directly away from the building thereby reducing required crane height
  • Ascent is suitable for all formwork systems, and can do inclined, stepped, circular or straight surfaces. Safety features were completely integrated into the system
