For fixing to multi-purpose profile of upright or horizontal StarTec panels – for fast and safe transportation on site.

StarTec panels and corners

With panel heights of 330 cm to 75 cm and panel widths of 270 cm to 20 cm, StarTec is readily adaptable to specific geometries. Thanks to the variety of elements, all common wall thicknesses can be reproduced without fitting areas. 

The system also has articulated corners that are infinitely adjustable from 60° to 180°.

AluStar and Startec formwork systems connected with assembly locks

An unbeatable duo

Together, StarTec and AluStar comprise a product family featuring crane-­independent aluminium and large-format steel panels. The only component needed for their universal application is the assembly lock. No other adapters or connectors are required. Combined use of the two systems allows the ­efficient and flexible deployment of resources to meet all on-site demands.
