Kwikform UK has launched a range of high-performance, fast-track formwork panel systems, now available for hire or purchase through the company's depots.
Kwikform Athlete large surface panels can accommodate pressures up to 92kN/m2 with 20mm tie rods. Thought to be one of the largest panel sizes available in the UK, it is described as being ideal for heavy duty civil engineering applications.
Featuring box section framing for extra rigidity and load bearing, Athlete is assembled on the ground using wedge clamps and then craned into position in multi-panel sections. Largest panel size is 2.5m by 2.m.
More suited to medium sized applications, Logo has sheet metal framing with a pressure capacity of up to 60kN/m2 using 15mm tie rods. Again it is assembled on the ground and craned into position. The largest panel measures 2.4m by 2.7m and the wedge clamp creates a flush panel connection which eliminates the possibility of misalignment.
Trapeze has been specifically designed for the construction of true radius curves and diameters as small as 2m can be created with complete accuracy. A radius jig is used to produce accurate pre-installation curvature ensuring that the correct radius is obtained before the formwork panels are delivered to site.
Only four ties per 7.2m2 of wall are required allowing quick installation, and being light in weight, larger sections can be assembled and craned into position.
