In order to protect overbuilt existing structures such as tunnels or channels from the load of a new building situated above, a load-free separation layer can be created between the existing structure and the new building using the Egcovoid® void former.
In urban areas, the supply & positioning of media ducts in road construction is becoming increasingly important. The universal formwork material Pecafil® in U-shape is particularly suitable as formwork for concreting due to its quick and easy installation.
In larger building projects, crane foundations are integrated directly into the floor slab and are the first areas to be concreted. Stremaform® is useful to get connected and sealed this construction situation.
Sheet piles are used as permanent or temporary support of excavations. Pecafil® formwork acts as a sacrificial back shutter for the concrete liner wall, the sheet piles are spanned and do not need to be filled with concrete.
The requirements for shuttered fair-faced concrete surfaces are particularly high for representative structural elements in building construction. For this purpose, spacers with a minimum contact area are recommended in order to avoid marking the contact points.
Whether for force transmission, sealing or special component geometries – there is a great deal of variation in the execution of expansion joints. For that reason, the manufacture of this formwork on the building site is often complex, unreliable and time-consuming.
