Ver­satile us­age
made possible by holes in the form-fac­ing 

  • en­ables col­umn cross-sec­tions of up to 105 cm x 105 cm, by adapt­ing in a 5 cm grid
  • prac­ti­cal accessories make the formwork quick to as­sem­ble and re­set

Re­duced com­mis­sion­ing quan­ti­ties and costs
by us­ing pan­els that are al­ready on-site any­way 

  • max­i­mum util­i­sa­tion ob­tained from the formwork by us­ing the uni­ver­sal pan­els for columns, corn­ers, stop-ends and wall junc­tions
  • long-lived, thanks to high-grade Framax Xlife sheet and hot-dip gal­vanised frames
  • uni­ver­sal pan­els can al­so be used in nor­mal wall formwork by sim­p­ly clos­ing off the holes in the form-fac­ing

Faster working due to the low form-tie count, with wide spacing (up to 1.35 m) between form-ties.

Easy handling and planning thanks to logical system-grid. The 15 cm grid, with 5 different widths of panel, results in optimum adaptability to every layout.

High safety at your site. The accident risk is reduced, and legally compliant working conditions.
