What’s your shuttering challenge?
Lack of casting surface?
Do you want to maximize the usage of the casting table surface in your precast wall production? Is buying new tables the only solution? Not necessary. First try to change your formwork material and magnets.
A compact multi-side magnet that fit into narrow places and have more than one jaw may be a solution. When you can use more than only one side of a magnet you can save space, time, and costs.
Keeping corners straight?
Have challenges of keeping the corners straight in door and window openings? This is a common problem with wooden formwork widely applied in the wall production.
The modern solution for that is aluminum side profiles, 90-degree corner pieces and magnets.
Heavy formwork materials like steel and heavy magnets (if used) are time-consuming and unsafe combination that requires crane handling.
So, choose instead shuttering materials with weight of around four kilos per running meter for the average height of 150 mm. Combine with the lightest re-usable magnets. Move easily and safely without any lifting equipment.
Amount of waste?
Change to aluminum profiles and magnet shuttering. Aluminum is re-usable, so you can cast directly on it. If you currently use wood to make molds, you can save over 10,000 euros annually by replacing timber with aluminum profiles.
Even if you will use aluminum profiles in a combination with plywood, you do not need to change plywood side forms as often as the wooden forms. The result: you improve work safety, save money, and create less waste.
