What's New In Plant & Equipment

Early stripping with MevaDecUNO estimates 3 billion housing units needed by 2030

The future of residential construction is marked by a rapidly growing demand for cost-effective, simple housing in developing and emerging countries, estimated to reach 3 billion housing units by 2030.

This immense construction calls for innovative solutions such as motivated NEOPOR System GmbH from Germany to increase awareness of its cellular light-weight concrete solutions.

This kind of foamed concrete enables small housing units to be erected quickly and in great numbers. It needs no compacting and has a favourable insulating effect.

This is advantageous for mass housing in regions with hot climates. Traditional plywood facing proved unsuitable because of its strong absorptive behaviour, which has a negative effect when foamed concrete is pumped in at great speed.

In trials, MEVA formwork, with its all-plastic facing, light-weight, hand-set system required no but it coped wall pours to room height in one go.

ASCHAL expanded universal “Modular formwork” system PASCHAL expanded universal 'Modular formwork' system

In reaction to customer demand from various countries where reinforced concrete frame construction is dominant, Paschal has expanded its universal modular formwork system.

This system expansion allows contractors to form square as well as rectangular reinforced concrete columns with external dimensions from 20 to 50 cm in increments of 5 centimetres.

The system is designed to create column forms in varying lengths, widths and heights in a short time using a small number of light panels. Where necessary, chamfer angles or sealing strips can be inserted in the corners of the formwork and fixed there.

The panels come in heights of 100 cm, 125 cm and 150 cm and have a fixed width of 60 cm. The modular column panel, with its dimensions of 60 x 150 cm, has a dead weight of less than 40 kg, so it is easily manageable for two people.

The height of the Modular column panels can be extended by fastening them one below the other using the keybolts. Connection holes have already been made in the frame profiles and plywood to provide a force-fit corner connection with locking screws.

The prepared holes in the 15 mm thick phenolic resin-coated plywood are sealed at the factory with PVC plugs which simply have to be popped out on the construction site. The locking screw fits through the two parallel opposing holes so that it can be hammered in from the outside as usual.

The Modular column formwork system is configured for a maximum fresh concrete pressure of 60 kN/m² in accordance with DIN 18218.
