Dry ties
The top ties can be simply replaced by tie claws 23, flange nuts and the D22 plastic tube as a spacer.

Internal tie holes
The 90 and 75 cm wide panels are provided with additional internal tie holes, set back from the edge by around 20 cm, that allow tying without obstruction by waterstops and simplify the shuttering of foundations.

Tie-free
25 to 55 cm wide AluFix panels enable foundations and small walls to be quickly and easily cast without conventional tying components. This is achieved through the use of foundation tape connected to the panels by foundation tensioners. The formwork assembly is dry-tied at the top using the tie claw 23.

Cost-effective hand-set formwork by MEVA

 

  • Multi-function profile
    Made from closed hollow aluminium profiles with welded-in DW 15 nuts for rapid, structurally continuous connection of accessories

  • Ergonomic grip profile 
    Stable, closed hollow aluminium profile

  • High-grade powder-coated finish

    Facilitates cleaning and reduces concrete ­adhesion

  • Closed hollow profile
    For high stability and long service life

  • alkus all-plastic facing
    No water absorption. Resistant to swelling and shrinkage. The smooth, robust surface guarantees a high-quality concrete finish, even after heavy use.

Flange screw 
Single component for strong connection of all accessories.

EA assembly lock 
Only one component is needed for rapid, reliable panel connection: the MEVA assembly lock. Allows single-handed fitting at any position along frame. A few hammer blows suffice to achieve strong, level, stepless panel connection.

Fit prop head – secure – install slab formwork
Simply by fitting AluFix prop heads to the EuMax props and securing them with the 14/90e pin, the AluFix system is transformed into high-performance slab formwork for up to 46 cm thick slabs.
