HV slab formwork

The slab formwork system based on aluminium components

HV slab formwork

Advantages

  • The Alu-TITAN HV slab formwork system has sliding heads
  • The system allows the removal of the formwork 2 or 3 days after concreting
  • Suitable for slab thicknesses of up to 1.05 m
  • Increases the flexibility of slab forming and stripping in comparison to traditional equipment
  • Reduces the number of components required
  • Multidirectional, smooth adjustment, providing a structure that is infinitely adaptable to all spatial dimensions.
  • Officially approved calculations available

The System

Alu TITAN HV is the best proven aluminium beam system, allowing for the rapid and economical resolution of all types of formwork challenges without complex and costly adjustments to the geometry of the on-site surfaces. It is a modular system that can function independently of a crane, as it can be handled manually.

The Idea

The difference between conventional systems and Alu TITAN HV is that the primary V beams and secondary H beams are in the same horizontal plane. This is due to the lateral support slots in the primary V beams and the sliding heads.

Conventional formwork involves the inefficient overlapping of beams: these are eliminated in the TITAN HV system. The beams form a stable grid, even without the phenolic board. However, the flexibility of the TITAN-HV system is maintained: by changing direction, which is done by simply hanging one primary beam from another primary beam: the system's beam grid adapts to the shape of any floor surface. Obstacles such as columns, pillar reinforcements, adjustment sectors, curved walls, etc., are not a problem. The primary and secondary beams can be installed in any position.

With its sliding heads, the system allows for the removal of the formwork two day after the termination of the concreting and without the need to remove the props. All the primary and secondary beams, and up to 50% of the props together with their sliding heads, can be removed for reuse in the next section of concreting.

In practice, this reduces the time required for the removal of the formwork by at least 0.1 m/m² compared to traditional systems. In two months, this reduction in labour costs compensates the rental costs and the labour savings.
