MEVA HN – the flexible and efficient slab formwork

MEVA HN slab formwork is very easy to adapt to changing slab layouts. The secondary beams can be placed and slide freely within the primary beams; enabling you to adjust to any slab footprint.

Product characteristics

  • Primary and secondary beam method
    • Assembly begins in a corner for easy formation in both directions; primary beams are assembled parallel to the longer wall
  • Ability to switch forming direction at any time
    • MEVA HN primary beams can be connected 90o to another primary beam so that the direction can be changed to form around obstacles such as columns and shear walls
  • Less compensation areas are required
    • Because MEVA HN secondary beams can be placed into the primary beam anywhere along its length and is not on a fixed grid, less filler areas are necessary
  • The MEVA drop head allows for faster stripping and cycling
    • The drop head permits lowering of the formwork by 7½” (19 cm)
    • Only the post shores with drop heads remain in position to support the weight of the slab until the concrete is strong enough to support its own weight
  • Adjusts for length and unusual geometries
    • If the building design does not allow one more primary beam to fit in the beam row, you can simply change the direction by 90°
  • Complete formwork solutions
    • MEVA HN can be used in conjunction with the MEP shoring systems, making its range of applications wider and more flexible than other systems
  • Use the facing of your choice
  • A wide range of slab thicknesses are achievable

The fast, efficient, labor-saving solution for concrete slab construction

The MEVA HN slab forming system features drop heads for early stripping with primary beams (H) and secondary beams (N) that create effecient grid work and adapt to varying layouts – saving time, labor, and costs on the job site.

MEVA HN assembly generally begins in a corner for easy assembly in both directions. The rows of primary beams are assembled parallel to the longer wall. The secondary beams are placed into the primary beams so that both are situated at the same level, then the plywood decking is placed on top.

The MEVA HN system can be adjusted to accommodate complicated shapes with the same components used for typical slab applications. If the building design does not allow one more primary beam to fit in the beam row, you can simply change the assembly direction by 90° – another advantage of the MEVA HN system. Secondary beams can be placed into the primary beam anywhere along its length, allowing for even more flexibility around columns and complex geometries.

The HN slab forming system was designed for seamless integration with the MEP system, making the range of applications for use more versatile than many of its competitors.

MEVA HN – One system, many options

Simple solutions for complex designs

  • Columns
    • By having the ability to place a primary beam perpendicular to another primary beam, MEVA HN offers flexibility to form easily and efficiently around columns and shear walls.
  • MEVA HN and MEP
    • MEVA HN slab forming system can be used in conjunction with the MEP shoring system, making its range of applications wider and more flexible than others on the market.
  • MEVA HN assembly
    • MEVA HN Assembly generally begins in a corner for easy erection in both directions. The rows of primary beams are assembled parallel to the longer wall.
  • Slab edge and cantilever
    • Free slab edges can be achieved using an MD prop connector, MD beam stiffener, and MD guard railing post. The connector allows for direct support of cantilevering primary beams, with the integrated eye permitting the formwork to be anchored with a tie down chain.
  • MEP post shores

MEVA Drops & Props

MEVA Drop head
Easy attachment to primary beam. Permits lowering of the formwork by 7.5“ (19 cm), so beams can be easily removed and used for the next shoring cycle. Drop head allows for a larger grid pattern, more clearance & for faster stripping and cycling.

MD prop connector
