The CORCON system was refined using finite element analysis to withstand rotational movement and deflection forces, both under construction and for the life of the structures.
Participating in this technical revolution, you will not only benefit from saving in time, concrete and steel resources but create a stronger, more earthquake resistant slab, resulting in stronger building.
Total Construct Cost Saving is about 20% !
An overlap gives the beam moulds a telescopic capability, allowing for spans of up to 9 metres with simple reinforcement - and up to 26 metres if pre-stressed post-tensioned.
Reusable and 100 percent recyclable:
Corrugated sheets, 10 – 20 times, or more
Beams – in excess of 20 times
Brackets – 100 times or more
All components can be ordered separately.
Design made for multilevel factories, warehousing, commercial offices, and multi-storey residential and multi-level parking stations.
The resulting slab is much stronger and more earthquake resistant than any equivalent system. (CORCON specimen distinctly displayed a superior behaviour over the other specimens in a concrete slab system seismicity test by Melbourne University during 2002-2003)
CSIRO First level fire-resistant standard.
A Sound Transmission Class (STC) of 49 was derived for the specimen from the sound transmission loss values above, in accordance with the procedure specified in AS 1276-1979 CSIRO Division of Building
No screw and hook connection needed.
No special skills, tools or equipment needed.
Lightweight steel mould is easy to handle, setting up is quick & repetitive.
Savings on concrete 30% to 50%+. Savings on steel reinforcement 30% to 80%.
500 m2 of forms weigh less than 13 tonnes, and can easily be transported in a 6 m container.
A Sound Transmission Class (STC) of 49 (the average is 45) was derived for the specimen from CSIRO sound transmission loss values test
CORCON provides clear energy advantages over alternative slab systems with minimum savings of 20% embodied energy and savings of over 2 kg of CO2 gas emission/m2 of slab

There are two main reasons to use CORCON.
One, the most important, is that CORCON is a value integrated product. This means that there are enormous savings to the client, developer, contractor and subcontractor.
Two - CORCON will eventually replace millions of cubic metres of rainforest plywoods,and save millions of tonnes of concete and steel reinforcing resulting in embodied energy savings of 200-300%.
The first 4000m2 Placed in a Manila Shopping Centre with 500m2 Corcon used 8 times in 8 weeks resulting in savings of 50% compared to precast Joist System (similar to Ultra Floor).
One of DCI clients in Malaysia - IJM, a multi-national company- has successfully used CORCON in two 5 storey carparks and are claiming that its use has resulted in a 20% saving on costs and 30% reduction in construction time.
Over 200,000sq m of CORCON has been placed in the ACT in the last ten years,
A company using this formwork in Darwin has claimed a saving of up to $80 per square metre,
