The shuttering block for civil and underground engineering
The shuttering block meets many standard demands for concrete formwork in civil and underground engineering due to its system, which consists of middle and edge blocks.
Foundation steps or different ground levels can be overcome by positioning the blocks accordingly.
Uneven surfaces can be leveled out by attaching shuttering boards which can be ground off at the appropriate level (e.g. as upturn beams).
The shuttering block for structural engineeringThe shuttering block can be used wherever a simple shuttering method is needed for reinforced concrete.
With a standard wall thickness between 17, 5 cm and 36, 5 cm, rising walls can be built of shuttering blocks, reinforcement and site-mixed concrete in an elegant and easy manner.
An example is the reinforced concrete jamb wall. The jamb wall absorbs the forces from the ceiling. The jamb wall is attached to the ceiling with a reinforcement element. Several shuttering blocks are put on top of each other until the appropriate height is reached. The site-mixed concrete can be used as bond. In addition to the necessary reinforcement, it is important to fill the blocks thoroughly with concrete.
Entire wall segments for basements can be made by shuttering blocks. Due to their simplicity, the shuttering blocks can be easily combined with a reinforced concrete wall. The continuous vertical and horizontal openings of the blocks make it possible to fix the necessary reinforcements.
Reinforced linking elements at the base and the ceiling can be easily included.
