Wall Formwork

  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.



 
StarTec


The formwork system for manual application and crane use



StarTec is the versatile formwork system for all sized contractors who have to face a lot of different construction jobs.

  • StarTec is flexible enough to allow use in domestic, commercial, civil and industrial construction projects
  • The formwork is light enough for manual application but also solid and sturdy enough for crane ganging
  • The torsion proof panels are made up of closed profiles
  • The panels are available in heights of 270, 135 and 90 cm; including a large-size panel of 270/240 cm
  • It is always possible to combine the panels in a way to obtain continuous vertical joints in the concrete and keep the projecting formwork height at a minimum
  • Anchor sleeves are welded in the panel frame; their conical shape highly facilitates the placing of Z-Bar tie rods
  • As the profiles and panel sizes are identical you can combine StarTec with the aluminium formwork AluStar in any possible way.

Longer lifespan
Improved protection against rust and corrosion by a cataphoretic dip-painting (well established in truck construction) before immersion treatment. This extends the lifespan and reduces the cleaning effort.





Closed profiles
The heavy-duty steel frames are manufactured of closed profiles. Depending on the static requirements for the various sized panels the thickness of the profiles are of up to 4 mm.



Fast panel connection
The fast and efficient connection of the panels is guaranteed by the Meva assembly lock.

No matter if the panels are assembled side by side or on top of

each other - the assembly lock can be attached on the frame at any position. With a few hammer blows two effects are achieved at the same time: a safe connection and a perfect alignment. Since the lock only weighs 2 kg it can be easily attached with one hand, even if you are working on a ladder.

Mammut 350


Higher, faster, efficient




Perfect for high walls
Mammut 350 is the new generation of the Mammut formwork, which has been successful on the market since 1982. With the standard height of 3.50 m and a number of new features the Mammut 350 sets a new standard for frame formwork systems.
The Mammut 350 is ideal for civil engineering mining and commercial projects as well as for industrial and engineering construction or for any structure with high requirements on the concrete surface:
  • One basic panel = two possible floor heights: 350 cm and 250 cm (panel in horizontal or vertical position). Biggest panel covers 8.75 m².
  • Perfect symmetry – all panels (also large-size panels) can be arranged and stacked in any horizontal or vertical configuration.
  • Height increments of 25 cm.
  • The arrangement of the panels can be changed from horizontal to vertical position without affecting the homogeneous grid of tie holes and joints.
  • All panels with a width of 250 cm and 125 cm have bump notches at the outer corners – this allows an easy assembly and alignment of the panels.
  • All tie holes of the large-size panels have to be used therefore eliminating potential incorrect assembly.
  • All panels and accessory parts of Mammut 350 and Mammut can be combined with each other.




A multiple rationalization potential
Thanks to the large-size units – the basic panel 350 x 250 cm has a surface of 8.75 m²– there is a great saving potential for any user. You can use the Mammut 350, for example, in horizontal position for underground car parks (height = 250 cm), horizontally or vertically stacked for a lobby (height = 500 cm or 700 cm), or with the standard panel height of 350 cm for typical floor heights.





Forming face is as durable as the frame
The standard equipment of the Mammut 350 with the alkus plastic composite sheet guarantees a permanent high concrete surface during the whole lifespan. The alkus-sheet lasts as long as the panel frame.
There are no consequential costs to replace a worn out forming face – with alkus this is a thing of the past.




Attachment of accessories
Seven multi-function profiles, with integral Z-Bar threaded nuts, make it easier to attach and remove accessories.





Perfect for high walls and fair faced concrete
The Mammut 350 is a highly efficient formwork system with a high resistance to fresh concrete pressure. When using the Mammut 350 you can pour concrete up to a height of 4.00 m without taking care of the rate of pouring, as long as you continue to observe the concrete codes with regard to admissible deflections.
