Doka Framax Xlife
System Framax Xlife
The ingeniously co-ordinated panel formats let you get the greatest possible use out of the formwork
15 cm grid, achieved with only five widths and three heights, simplifies planning, forming and logistics on the site
the frames come with practical cross boreholes that simplify work on stop-ends, corners and columns
stable galvanised powder-coated steel frames ensure plane concrete surfaces
Framax Xlife sheet
very high numbers of re-use cycles possible, thanks to plastic-enhanced surface and special sheet structure
fewer positive imprints, due to the sheet's great resistance to scratching and vibrator damage
fewer areas needing repair, as there is no splintering and far less swelling around nail-holes
easy, fast (intermediate) cleaning, also using high-pressure washer
Framax exrtra-large panels
for large-area formwork units, meaning fewer inter-panel connections and short repositioning times
the panels can be used facing one another in the upright
the large-area elements are especially suitable for producing fair-faced concrete
Shaft formwork with Framax stripping cornner I
The Framax stripping corner I was designed specifically for use with shaft formwork. It enables the formwork to be closed and opened in accordance with accident protection regulations, i.e. without using the crane, simply by operating easy-to-turn spindles with a reinforcement rod or the convenient ratchet. It is then lifted and reset in one piece, thus saving crane-time. The Framax stripping corner I is also suitable for use on pilasters and as an inside corner on wall formwork.
With its 15 cm clamping range, the Framax multi-function clamp matches the panel size-grid exactly. This means that only one closure is needed per wall plane.
Framax 3-in-1 pole tool
For operating the lifting hook safely from ground level, for plumbing and aligning the formwork and for pulling out double-headed nails.
Universal panel SCC
This makes it possible to place self-compacting concrete (SCC) by pumping it into the formwork from below. It can be used for both walls and stop-ends.
The wide form-tie spacing of up to 1.35 m delivers huge cost-savings. The large, conical form-tie sleeves in the panels enable them to be stood at an angle on one or both sides, and to be height-mismatched.
Monotec tying sysetem
Allows form-tie points to be prepared quickly and reliably by just one man. This ergonomically comfortable option for manipulating the ties from just one side of the formwork saves time, and thus shortens the forming-times.
Fitting the Monotec tying sysetem
The combination nut is both the panel connector and the form-tie nut. It holds the panels together on the side that is put up first. On the extra-large panels, the form-tie nuts are bolted onto the frame profile. After the formwork has been closed, the Monotec ties are fitted from one side and tightened with the Monotec ratchet.
Wall thicknesses with Monotec tying sysetem
Only two different types of conical Monotec tie are needed for economically forming wall thicknesses of between 15 cm and 35 cm.
Integrated waling sysetem
Connector-rails across the entire width of the panel make quick and easy work of attaching accessories like panel struts, universal walings and pouring platforms, with no obligatory fixing points.
A blow of the hammer is all it takes to join the elements. This makes for fast working, with no need for any additional tools.
Up to a panel height of 5.40 m, the multi-function clamp, with its larger contact surface, ensures self-aligning inter-panel connections. For higher vertically stacked gangs than this, Universal walings are used to give the gang-form extra rigidity. This makes it possible to put up and set down larger gang-forms by crane
The special hole-grid in Framax Xlife universal panels makes them ideally suitable for cost-saving forming of outside corners, wall junctions, stop-ends and columns.
Corners and junctions
Corners at any angle, stop-ends and T-junctions can all be formed swiftly and dependably using the inside corners, hinged corners and versatile Universal panel from the Framax "construction kit". This is the way to avoid costly field-built solutions.
