This year the formwork system is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is in its sixth generation. Each new generation of Framax Xlife always offers new benefits and is easily combinable with its predecessors.
Customers find it is fast working due to its optimized design. The consistent concrete finish comes from superior product quality — the hot dipped galvanized and powder coated steel frame and revolutionary 7/8” thick Xlife plywood facing produce a consistent superior concrete finish. The system is innovative with detailed design specific to the U.S. and Canadian markets, including advantages such as Imperial dimensioned corner panels, so there is no need to convert from inches to millimeters to form the details. Framax Xlife is the framed formwork 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. Framax Xlife provides high safety for a job site with build-in tie off points in every frame, meeting OSHA requirements .
Framed formwork Framax Xlife is the result of entrepreneurial awareness, a customer-oriented mind set and peer-to-peer cooperation. Thirty years of Framax Xlife underscores how buying into this formwork system has been a cost-effective investment for customers and will remain the right choice for many years to come.
