The Framax Xlife plus form tie can be operated from one side. It is the centrepiece of the Framax Xlife plus framed formwork system. It makes your job of erecting and stripping formwork for walls fast, cost-effective and safe. Due to its conical shape, there is no need for jacket tubes and cones. Innovative: Form-tie sleeves are completely sealed without wearing parts.
With effortless, damage-free tightening and releasing of the form ties using a ratchet or impact wrench
as panels are stacked even faster as there is no need to remove integrated form-tie nuts

The system logic of Framax Xlife plus optimises material utilisation and logistics for a better overview on site. The basic panel is square and standard panels top-fix or bottom-fix set longside horizontally or vertically; there are only a few standard-panel formats - no need for small panels of many different sizes to make up gangforms.
The Framax Xlife plus wall formwork system is now extended with the introduction of a new 3.00 m high panel option. Economical forming is enabled with only two tying levels for a 3.00 m formwork height. The integrated function profiles provide additional flexibility in applications and for mounted parts such as brackets, panel struts and walings.

“For many jobs, particularly in residential construction, 3.30 m panels are too tall but 2.70 m isn’t high enough. And vertical stacking costs time and money. The 3.00 m Framax Xlife plus panels are literally just what we needed.”
The build progressed at record speed in the Upper Austrian town of Lohnsburg, where Framax Xlife plus was used to erect a new warehouse and retaining wall. The fast framed formwork with its innovative high-performance form tie was the key to an extremely efficient 1-day cycle.
Speed and safety are what count. Four apartment blocks had to be built and the combination of Framax Xlife plus with efficient Doka safety products permitted smooth progress.
Only two men were available to build a silo for wood chips to fuel the heating boiler in Schloss Schwarzenberg, a castle dating back to medieval times and sited in the Steigerwald forest of Saxony, in Germany. Framed formwork Framax Xlife plus with its completely new type of form tie helped make progress on this build even faster. The form tie is totally easy to operate from one side only and it can be installed and removed very quickly indeed.
The planners had originally envisaged using a semi-precasting solution for the four-floor second phase of the Volksbank Osterholz-Scharmbeck construction project. But after an in-depth analysis and closer consideration of all the factors, in-situ concreting was adopted as the preferred method of construction. The lead contractor obtained 300 m² of Framed formwork Framax Xlife plus for the job.
A town-centre residential facility with 18 owner-occupier apartments was built to nestle between the mature treescape of the municipal park and existing buildings. Construction of the basement in particular called for a smart formwork solution. The new Framax Xlife plus really demonstrated its capabilities on this part of the build.
