ULMA launches the most optimised light formwork solution into the market

Jun 09, 2014
The light LGW formwork is the result of turning research and innovation into new products, new solutions and new services for the customer.

LGW wall formwork is geared to residential construction. The high project costs ask for increasingly lighter and simpler solutions or formwork systems that increase assembly efficiency. LGW is ULMA's answer to the requirements of the market and to customer requests in projects all over the world.

With this product, ULMA stroke a balance between weight and strength in the most cost-effective way. With the weight (30 kg/m2) of an average panel, its load bearing capacity increased up to 60 kN/m2 in the entire range and up to 80 kN/m2 in the case of the universal panel. In the case of walls with the same height of the panel, there is no need to control the pouring rate.

There is a wide range of panels available providing solution for any wall, column and foundation geometry regardless of its dimensions and complexity without requiring for further accessories.

The standard panel heights of 3; 2.4; 1.2 and 0.6 m combined with the various widths ranging from 0.3 m to 0.9 m suit small as well as large projects. Different coatings, painted as well as galvanised, seek to satisfy different customer needs.

Moreover, all panels have lateral holes in the profiles that in combination with universal panels suit high-quality and efficient bulkhead, corner and column solutions.

The benefits are clear: maximum lightness, flexibility and strength, low cost, high efficiency and consequently an increase in productivity. In fact, crane occupancy diminishes, freeing it to carry out other works.
