Slab Formwork

Forming of slabs has become a lot more efficient with the introduction of the
MevaDec modular slab formwork system.

MevaDec modular formwork offers three forming methods, using the one system, for any suspended slab project. These include FTE, HN and the E method. The drop head system enables early striking to be achieved, typically within 3-4 days (subject to engineer’s approval). MevaDec components can then be cleaned and reused which reduces the amount of slab formwork materials required on site.

Features & Benefits

Adaptable

Easily adapted to most floor plans.

Smart

Achieve off-form finish (HN system). Greatly minimise all infill areas. Reduce freight costs, as more formwork is able to be loaded per truck than conventional system.

Simple

Eliminate the need to purchase large quantities of timber and plywood (small quantities will still be required to infill areas).

Safe

Improve Workplace Health & Safety concerns, as erection is done from below.

Productivity

Ensure high levels of productivity, resulting in significant labour savings.

Savvy

Reduce dependancy on craneage to lift materials off slab - all components are small enough and light enough to be transported up in a material hoist.

Accessible

Provide larger clear unobstructed areas underneath formwork resulting in improved access for all trades.

Strength

Handle concrete thicknesses of up to 1.0 mitres.

HN

Primary and Secondary Beam Method

Primary and secondary beams are situated at the same level. They support the separate plywood or alkus shuttering. The use of drop heads permits early dismantling of the primary and secondary beams, which enables the props to remain behind undisturbed. This forming method can be applied to all floor layouts, even if the floor is not right angled, as the modular system adapts in both directions. This system can be utilised to achieve an off-form finish.

FTE

Drop Head Beam Panel Method

As with the primary and secondary beam method (HN), the load bearing system is composed of primary beams and drop heads. It supports the ready made panels which have either plywood or alkus as a form facing. The drop head permits the early striking of primary beams and panels. This method achieves a ‘patterned’ finish, due to the layout of panels, with very minimal deflection. If required skimming or patching can assist to ensure a higher class of exposed concrete.

E

Panel Method

Panels are supported directly at their joints by prop heads – without beams, and whilst productivity levels can be very high, there is no undisturbed propping feature with this style of system. Props can be of lower capacity as spans and or loads are reduced accordingly.
