Continuing in its drive to reduce the cost of labour in concrete formwork and to simplify design and assembly, RMD Australia has two aluminium beams in its product range.
Aluminium beams combine the benefits of strength, lightness and ease of handling with consistency, versatility and exceptional durability. With an extensive range of accessories, the beams form a complete system that can be used for virtually unlimited configurations and applications.
RMD Aluminium Beams have very high resistance to bending, concentred load capacity and rigidity against deflection.
The Alform Beam has unique inclined twin webs, which, together with the edge stiffenings, provide great lateral stability and robustness in use. Plywood formwork is simply attached by nail connection to the timber batten in the upper flange, and the bevelled edge to the top flange allows for easy removal of the formwork on completion of use.
A central neutral axis ensures a very economical section, particularly in mutispan applications, and coupled with its range of accessories, the Alform Beam provides contractors with a very cost effective formwork system.
RMD Australia's portfolio of Aluminium Beams include:
This is a 225mm deep, heavy-duty primary beam for slab support, with a very high bending and concentrated load capacity.
This 150mm deep beam is designed for wall formwork and slab support applications.
