alkus all-plastic facing
No water absorption, resistant to swelling and shrinkage. Smooth, robust surface guarantees a high-quality concrete finish, even after heavy use
Tie rod fixture
For fixing to multi-purpose profile of upright or horizontal AluStar panels – for fast and safe transportation on site.
AS assembly lock
Only one component needed for rapid, reliable panel connection: MEVA assembly lock. Allows single-handed fitting at any position along the frame. A few hammer blows suffice to achieve a strong, level and stepless panel connection.
Ergonomic grip profile
Stable, closed hollow aluminium profile
AluStar offers an easily adaptable formwork solution thanks to its wide range of possible combinations. Height increments of 30 cm are achievable through the free connection of formwork panels in the upright or horizontal position.
Keeping everything in hand
Carefully thought through to the finest detail
AluStar's ease of handling is a testament to MEVA's intelligent product design and close collaboration with practitioners in the development and optimisation of its systems. Fast, crane-independent movement is no problem: the convenient grip profile ensures that the AluStar panels can be safely held and transported. They are also easy to position and precision-assemble at the required location. The larger panels are additionally fitted with bump notches that vastly simplify adjustment and alignment.
Cast-iron corners with integral bump notches
- Fitted at four corners for panel widths of 55 cm and more to simplify adjustment and alignment with crow bar
- Stable and durable: the reinforced cast-iron corners significantly reduce the need for repairs
Working in tandem to meet all your on-site needs
Together, AluStar and StarTec 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.
This safety system with a working platform is easy to install using a single component – the flange screw. A loadbearing capacity of up to 200 kg/m² guarantees start-to-finish safety throughout the assembly and concreting operations.
