Aluminium formwork beam

Alu box beam – the lightweight, extra-high-load-capacity aluminium beam for materials-optimised jobsite use

The innovative cross-section of the Alu box beam gives it a high load rating, permitting optimised equipment usage on the site. The integrated nailing strip and the end-to-end fixing slot enable the beam to be re-used intensively, and give it a long lifespan.

High load capacity
achieved by innovative beam cross-section 

  • permitted bending moment M = 14.9 kNm
  • permitted shear force Q = 23.2 kN
  • rigidity E x l = 729 kNm²
  • weight = 7.3 kg/lin.m
  • overall height = 17.5 cm

Cuts costs
by reducing the number of items needed 

  • up to one-third fewer floor props for floor slabs, as wider beam-spans are possible
  • up to 50 percent fewer primary beams in the superstructures of fully loaded 10 kip shoring towers or Staxo 100 load-bearing towers, thanks to high load capacity
  • optimised site logistics and lower freight costs, as fewer items are needed

Long lifespan
thanks to high manufacturing quality 

  • high numbers of re-use cycles made possible by wear-resistant aluminium
  • the integral end-to-end fixing slot prevents damage to the beams
  • integrated, high-grade plastic nailing strip makes it easy to fix formwork sheeting
