To compare ABS Disposable Formwork’s benefits to alternative filling applications please fill in the form 1 through 7 and click ‘calculate’. The results table will show you our advantages in terms of concrete and steel consumptions, additional dead weight to the building, operational volume, and application speed. Assumptions and parameters for our calculations can be examined at the bottom of the page.

-Live loads and advised topping concrete thickness' for disposable formworks: 350 kg/m3 5 cm, 500 kg/m3 8 cm, 1.000 kg/m3 10 cm, > 1.000 kg/m3 15 cm
-In alternative filling scenarios, if topping concrete thickness is more than 15 cm then two layers of steel mesh is used.
-No additional concrete layer for dry concrete.
-Plastic disposbable formwork weight is assumed to be zero.
-In all scenarios the application is above an existing reinforced concrete slab.
-Traditional fillings are assumed to be compacted every 20 cm, double steel mesh for more than 15 cm topping concrete thickness and 10% steel mesh overlay.
-EPS styrofoam, aerated concrete and steel plaform applications omit method of pavement selection.
-Retaining walls does not exist for steel platform and dry concrete. Also, shall be zero for less than 30 cm applications.
