Framax Xlife is the framed formwork system that uses only a very few different panel formats to achieve a consistent 15 cm increment-grid, no matter whether the panels are stood upright or on their sides.
All the connectors and accessories fi t seamlessly into this grid - making for fast forming-times and high efficiency.
Features and Benefits:
because of its outstanding system attributes
high numbers of repeat uses made possible by its excellent manufacturing quality and extra-durable Xlife-sheet
smaller number of (expensive) closure zones, due to the consistent 15 cm increment grid
the widely spaced form-ties (1.35 m apart) save up to twelve per cent of the costs for ties and finishing-work on tie-holes
galvanised, powder-coated steel frame, for long lifespan
compact gang-forms mean less crane time is required
using the single-side-operable tying system Monotec optimises workflows in confined spaces as well
as so few worksteps are involved
forming-times are kept short by the widely spaced formties (up to 1.35 m apart)
rapid forming possible thanks to large-area gangs or extra-large panels
with a high-pressure washer, final and intermediate cleaning is easy, thanks to the panels' powder-coated frames and sturdy timber-plastic composite sheets
Easy handling and planning
thanks to practical panel size-grid
the ingeniously co-ordinated panel formats, with their logical size-grid, help you make optimum use of formwork commissioning quantities
having only five panel widths makes for easy planning and forming, and efficient logistics
Comprehensive workplace safety
with compatible ladderways and working platforms
safe vertical access with the Ladder system XS
workplace safety on all sides with the Platform system Xsafe plus
practical accessories – such as panel struts, lifting/ repositioning devices, 3-in-1 pole tool etc. – make for safe, easy handling of the formwork
Superlative concrete results
facilitated by practical product details
clean concrete finish from the high-grade Xlife sheet with its plastic-enhanced surface
the ingeniously co-ordinated panel size-grid permits a neat joint pattern even when combining upright and horizontal panels
no screw imprints in the concrete, as the formwork sheet is screwed on from the rear
the neat negative frame-imprints in the concrete minimise any finishing-work
