Circular formwork Radius for concreting an underground water tank.

Water tanks for medical clinic formed quickly with circular formwork Radius

The medical clinic Teutoburger Wald in Bad Rothenfelde, Germany, is improving its safety and water supply for fire fighting purposes. Two new underground concrete tanks were commissioned with a diameter of 10 m and a volume of 235 m³ each. Contractor Wilhelm Becker chose MEVA’s circular formwork Radius on account of costefficiency and labour saving benefits. The 3 m high panels can be delivered to site flat on a truck, making logistics simpler and faster. Once set up on site, the formwork is spindled to exact specification using the Radius ratchet.

„The quick and easy assembly, the shoe for the anchoring rail that clicks into the profile with a spring pin, the fixed crane hook and the base spindle for adjusting the panels on uneven ground worked really well,“ 

says project manager Harald Thielking.
