Plastic formwork products: traits and benefits
Geoplast plastic formwork is suitable for the construction of concrete columns, pillars, walls, plinths, and foundations directly on-site. Our formwork products are modular, therefore they satisfy various construction and planning needs: columns and pillars of different shapes and dimensions, walls, and foundations of different thickness and height. Our products for formwork Geopanel, Geopanel Star, Geotub, and Geotub Panel are particularly lightweight in comparison with the traditional wood panels. Moreover, the plastic material they are made of allows the concrete not to stick: every element can be easily cleaned just with a little water and then reused.
Geoplast formwork products are reusable for more than 100 times when properly maintained. They can also be rented, allowing minimal upfront investments and great savings in material and storage space.
Geopanel is a modular plastic formwork for the construction of concrete walls, foundations, and columns of the square or oblong section. The wide range of dimensions makes it easy to create structures of any size and shape. It allows the construction of walls of any thickness and height. The wall panels are made of ABS plastic, a material that is very light and easy to handle at the worksite. Geopanel can also be used to build roofs, stairwells, and elevator shafts. The panel weighs only 11 kg, therefore, both installation and dismantling are very fast. The process of reuse can be repeated quickly on various floors of the building. Geopanel is ideal for the use inside buildings or at construction sites that may be inaccessible to cranes and machinery.
Geopanel Star is modular, plastic formwork suitable for the creation of columns and plinths. It shares all the characteristics with Geopanel, only adapted to installation that suits square and oblong columns.
Geotub is plastic formwork for the construction of round columns up to 6 m high. It is suitable for restoration projects as well as small spaces with no access for heavy machinery or cranes. It is made of lightweight plastic that allows the construction in water and other extreme environment and weather conditions.
Geotub panel is a modular formwork for square and rectangular columns. It is adaptable to very restricted storage possibilities and offers high resistance and a long duration of panels.
All the Geoplast’s products can be considered an excellent substitute for the old methods of building the structures.
