After 13 years of successfully marketing Zemdrain® CPF liner and concrete spacers from MAX FRANK across Canada & the United States, Paul Stuart has decided it’s finally time to retire. Rob Haley will from now on be responsible for Zemdrain® & concrete spacer sales across North America.
To insulate external columns, the insulation is often applied after concreting. This is difficult due to the geometrical form of the columns. With a special Tubbox® column formers, the insulation is already integrated during manufacture.
Instead of sending Christmas cards and individual Christmas presents to customers and business partners, this year MAX FRANK supports the association "Haus für das Leben e.V." in Straubing as well as the Caritas children's home St. Vinzenz in Landshut.
Butt-joints of element walls must be designed according to the guideline for watertight structures as a controlled crack cross-section. The Fradiflex® element wall sealing system for joints and corners causes a controlled crack at the joints of the triple wall and reliably seals the element joint.
In addition to improvements to the design, modifications considerably facilitate the ordering process and on-site handling. The standardized product now consists of 2 standard length units and 5 standardized components.
The waterproofing membrane must be able to withstand cleaning before the concrete is poured, which is an important factor in the selection process. Zemseal® has been extensively tested for cleaning behaviour.
The sealing of the construction joint between floor slab and wall can be done for example with a metal water stop or with PVC waterbar. The simplest and safest solution is the one with coated metal water stop.
