Framed formwork with tie rod system that can be operated from one side for maximum built-in speed
The centrepiece of the new Framed formwork Framax Xlife plus is the Framax Xlife plus form tie. It can be operated from one side and saves up to one third in forming and stripping time. Due to its conical shape, there is no need for jacket tubes and cones. Innovative: Form-tie sleeves are completely sealed without wearing parts.
Shorter forming times
the Tie rod system Framax Xlife plus can be operated from one side, offering savings of up to one third in forming and stripping times
faster forming as some of the tasks have been eliminated, e.g. cutting and fitting of jacket tubes and cones
less time spent searching as the form-tie 'parking' position is right at the form-tie point
one-sided anchoring requires only one person
no jacket tubes and cones needed
no wearing parts as form-tie sleeves create a steel-on-steel seal for form ties
up to twelve percent fewer form-tie points on the 2.70 x 2.70 panel through 2 x 135 cm rather than 2 x 120 cm influence width
high numbers of repeat uses made possible by the extremely durable Xlife sheet
long lifespan thanks to steel frames that are hot-dip galvanised inside and out
protection of equipment as form ties are opened and closed using a ratchet
Easy handling and planning
easy planning and forming, and efficient logistics because of optimised number of panel types
ingeniously co-ordinated panel formats help make optimum use of formwork commissioning quantities
easy to combine horizontally and vertically
error-free form-tie setting by utilising all form-tie points
Attractive concrete finish
consistent joint pattern thanks to co-ordinated panel formats — even with vertical/horizontal combination
centrally arranged form-tie points resulting in symmetrical form-tie patterns
no screw imprints in the concrete, as the formwork sheet is attached from the rear
One-sided Tie rod system Framax Xlife plus 20.0
The Framax Xlife plus form tie is particularly compact and keeps both sides of the formwork safely in place. It takes only one person to thread it through the large form-tie sleeves from the side of the closing formwork and screw it into the built-in form-tie nut of the holding formwork on the opposite side.
Reliable wall thickness settings
Once set, wall thickness remains reliably intact — even after stripping. Accelerated work progress as there is no need for re-aligning. Wall thickness is set by way of grooves in the form tie that are arranged in a 5-mm increment-grid.
Innovative steel-on-steel sealing
No need for costly and time-consuming replacement of wearing parts as form-tie sleeves create steel-on-steel sealing for form ties.
No search times
Thanks to its 'parking' position at the form-tie point, the form tie is readily at hand.
Fewer jobs during disassembly
Without the need to remove the integrated form-tie nuts I in the holding formwork, panels are stacked even faster and easier.
Perfectly co-ordinated panels
Horizontal stacking with only a few standard panels thanks to square-shaped basic element. The well thought-out system logic creates a well-arranged form-tie and joint pattern no matter the panel combination.
optimum use of formwork commissioning quantities
Framax Xlife plus panels 3.30m allow for forming great room heights without stacking
