Framax Xlife is the wall form system that uses only a very few different panel formats to achieve a consistent 6" (15 cm) increment-grid, no matter whether the panels are stood upright or on their sides. All the connectors and accessories fit seamlessly into this grid – making for fast forming-times and high efficiency.

The large gang forms and wide tie spacing reduce the forming times for large areas to a minimum.
The DokaAR App America allows users to view Doka Formwork in Augmented Reality.
“We have been able to reduce our form and strip costs during projects, which also helps us be more competitive at bid time.”, Jason Barkhimer and Josh Mimna of CJ Mahan Construction Company.
Doka celebrates how Framax Xlife wall form system boosts efficiency in every day practice.
The special pattern of holes makes these panels ideal for the economical forming of outside corners, wall connections, bulkheads and columns.
Wall formwork Framax Xlife with the innovative Xlife facing takes the number of reuses way up and pushes follow-up costs way down.
The special surface of the Framax Xlife panels produces an excellent concrete finish, not just the first time, but again and again and again.
Nailing through the panel does not impair the clean face of the concrete. The surface of the wall form panel does not fracture and chip where the nails
Pierce it, so there are no ugly marks in the concrete.
Straight comparison shows that Wall formwork Framax Xlife nails much better than conventional formwork panels.
The surface of the panel is extremely dense and smooth, so dried concrete scrapes off easily. The panels can even be cleaned with high pressure washers.
The damaged area is routed out with a special router bit and a plastic patch applied for a seamless finish.
Doka stripping corners are designed specifically for shafts.
The pilaster panels make quick work of forming pilasters. Pilasters up to 18", in 2" increments and 24" when used with outside corners.
Position 1: Locked at right angles with quick pins for pouring.
Position 2: Folded flat for stripping and resetting.

The 135 x 270 Framax Xlife panels provide a tie spacing of 20 sq. ft. per tie. This means up to 20% fewer ties and correspondingly shorter forming times with this wall form. Labor costs for stripping and finishing of tie holes are also reduced.
Steel and timber fillers make details a snap. The multi-function clamp has an adjustment range up to 6" (15 cm), which matches exactly the steps in panel widths. In many instances, a single filler per wall is all that is necessary.
The universal panel SCC permits self-compacting concrete (SCC) to be pumped into the formwork from below: Self-compacting concrete (SCC) reduces air content by itself and finds its own level. Ideal for complex geometries and very highly reinforced structural elements. No manual compacting is necessary. The universal panel SCC has a special adapter with a gate for connecting to concrete pumps.
The 90 cm and 122 cm wide Framax Xlife universal panels are ideal for forming changing column cross-sections in 2" increments - without extra column formwork on the construction site.
The fast way to form chorded circular walls
Connecting rails over the entire width of the panels ensure fast installation of accessories such as panel struts, universal waling and walkway brackets - quick as a flash at any location along the integrated waling system.
Joining the panels takes a single blow with the hammer - for fast assembly of the wall form without additional tools. Only two lightweight clamps are required for joining two 270 high panels. The RU clamps have no fixed position. Adjacent panels can be at different elevations because of the frame profile.
Wide working platforms make work faster and safer. Framax Xlife pouring platforms fold out quickly and drop into position ready to start pouring.
