Completely configurable form carrier, most suitable for tunnels up to 1km long. Extremely cost-effective system. Available for rent.
Completely configurable form carrier, most suitable for tunnels up to 1km long. Extremely cost-effective system. Available for rent.

The formwork system for MK tunnels is composed of a lightweight mobile carriage that is used for both structure support and formwork. This is aimed at the civil engineering market, specifically the construction of mine tunnels of up to 1km long: underground stations, tunnel connections, hydraulic galleries etc.

Based on the MK System, the MK carriage is designed to carry out versatile and great load bearing capacity assemblies. Most of the components are standard and available for rent, offering cost-effective and high performance solutions. It also complies with all safety requirements thanks to working platforms, access, and other integrated safety elements items.
