Framed formwork Framax Xlife plus

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. Its conical shape makes jacket tubes and cones obsolete. Innovative: Form-tie sleeves are sealed without the need for 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

Lower costs

  • one-sided anchoring requires only one person
  • no jacket tubes and cones required
  • no wearing parts as form-tie sleeves create a steel-on-steel seal for form ties
  • influence width of 135 cm instead of 120 cm, for up to twelve percent fewer form-tie points
  • 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, 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 symmetrical 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
