The frame profile is the backbone of every panelised formwork system - literally. Its robustness, stability and flexural rigidity make a considerable difference in practice and its long lifespan. More important, they affect the system's concrete load capacity - and the speed and safety of your pour. MEVA developed the closed hollow profile that provides structural stability.
Manufacturing expertise on-board and in-house production stands for continuous, top-notch performance from the idea to series production. All MEVA locations across the world are audited according to the European standard DIN ISO 9001 and offer our clients consistently high quality.
MEVA uses a closed hollow steel profile in all its heavy-duty formwork systems. Being closed means it is more stable and torsion-free. Concrete cannot creep in anywhere. This makes cleaning and maintenance easier.
It was MEVA's idea to produce a closed double-chamber profile in aluminium that made aluminium formwork, with its weight advantages over steel, technically possible in the first place! The double chamber gives the profile the stability and robustness needed for formwork use. The frames are primed and coated using state-of-the-art powder coating technology.
All MEVA formwork systems are equipped with the same multi-function profiles to which all accessory parts are attached in the identical manner. Its unique feature is a Dywidag nut that is welded in on both sides to give it a sturdy and long-lasting hold. Welding it in prevents it from moving as may be the case with conventional beading. This enhances zero-error and safe assembly. It also means that working platforms are firmly attached and cannot slip away.
The tie holes with conical sleeve allow you to tie panels even when they are slanted.
The original panel connection from the inventor of the clamp! It was MEVA who invented and initially patented the formwork clamp in 1977. The clamp joins and aligns formwork panels, creating a structurally effective link between one frame and the next. You need only a few hammer blows to secure the connection. The clamp has no losable parts and is the lightest and most compact of its kind to this day. What's more, it can be placed anywhere on the frame, allowing you to connect panels even on uneven ground.
MEVA formwork panels leave minimum imprint on the concrete surface. In contrast to conventional plywood facing, the all-plastic facing alkus is fitted flush with the panel frame. And since the 100 % wood-free facing does not swell or shrink, the flush fit stays for its lifetime.
MEVA offers you the choice of 10 wall systems with the industry's most comprehensive selection of panel sizes. This gives you maximum flexibility and ensures minimum effort for compensation and filler areas. Optimised logistics save time and money.
Complex geometries and exacting requirements constantly present MEVA’s Special Design department with exciting tasks – during the renovation of a church in the Upper Bavarian village of Hebertshausen, for example.
MEVA's StarTec and Radius wall formwork played a starring role in the construction of a 20 m tall, plant-shaped viewing tower, built by the shore of Lake Velence, south-west of Budapest.
Four apartment buildings at heights up to 202 m by 2020: the city centre redevelopment project Deansgate Square. In use for a total of 194 storeys: the automatic MAC climbing system from MEVA
Children enjoy playing with it, teachers recommend it: the shape sorting box. Based on the popular toy, the architects who conceived the new Meséskert nursery designed the play areas on the top floor as a triangle, circle, and square.
When construction companies think about the restoration of historic districts, their enthusiasm tends to be subdued. The foremen and their teams often face tricky tasks due to narrow access roads, lack of storage space and complicated logistics.
One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.
