ALUSTAR

AluStar
AluStar is a light-weight, modular aluminium formwork system for use in structural and civil engineering projects.

Solid, handy, fast
AluStar is a light-weight, modular aluminium formwork system for use in structural and civil engineering projects. Contractors of any size appreciate AluStar as a formwork system for all jobs where no crane is available. It is mostly applied in domestic construction, smaller commercial and civil jobs and wherever the formwork has to be assembled by hand.

  • Ideal panel sizes allow fast adjustment to every layout.The panels are available in heights of 270, 135 and 90 cm (as is the StarTec system)
  • The 270/90 cm size panel weighs only 57 kg
  • AluStar and StarTec are fully compatible.

2-chamber profile
This special profile is extremely sturdy, torsionally braced and rugged. It enables easy  handling – with high efficiency. It is built tough enough for a long service life and a higher number of reuses.

Fast connection
The Assembly Lock permits the fast and safe connection of the panels. It can be attached on the frame at any position. It connects and aligns the panels in one operation. Since the lock weighs only 2 kg it can be easily attached with one hand, even if you are working on a ladder.

Attachment of accessories
The multi-function profiles with integral Z-Bar-threaded nuts permit fast attachment of all accessories:

  • Wall braces and alignment rails are mounted with flange screws
  • Scaffolding brackets are quickly attached with their integrated self-locking pins
  • Problem areas can be compensated by using Z-Bar tie rods of any length, which are attached to the multi-function profile as well – independent of tie holes.

Your advantage: few accessories, easy stock-keeping, no time consuming searching for unnecessary components.

Easy cleaning
A synthetic coating makes the frames concrete repellent as well as shock and scratch resistant. This special coating and the closed profiles help to reduce the cleaning effort to a minimum.

Resistance to concrete pressure
Novatec’s AluStar is designed to resist high concrete pressure. In other words, with formwork of single panel height (not extended) the concrete can be poured in a single operation, all the way to the top.
