ABS Plus | Adjustable height disposable formwork system for lightweight fillings


ABS Plus is a height adjustable disposable concrete formwork system made of recycled plastic. The system creates reinforced concrete raised floors up to 300 cm thus providing a light, fast, easy and economical filling in any structure.
The height of the ABS Plus system is adjusted by cutting the PVC pipes in advance according to the project requirements or by cutting standard length pipes on site according to actual needs.
Compared to similar systems, ABS Plus system consists of 2 legs per m2, which in addition to the following advantages, provides additional ease of application, concrete and steel savings.
ABS Plus system can be used for any sort of lightweight filling application. Some areas of use are; sunken slab filling, landscape filling to create a hard surface, inverted beam filling, filling between foundation footings, carpark ramp, pool deck filling, elevator hallway filling and crawlspace construction.
▶︎ The lightest solution to any filling problem; regardless of the height, only the weight of the topping concrete is added to the structure. In addition, the arch-dome shape of the formwork reduces the required thickness of the topping concrete.
▶︎ Unmatched logistical advantage; the products are stackable in each other. A sample height of 100 cm can be filled with only 1 truck of disposable formworks where any other alternative filling material would require 50 trucks!
▶︎Very high load bearing capacity; at a sample height of 100 cm with only 5 cm of topping concrete the live load bearing capacity is 55 kN/m2.
▶︎ Shortening of construction time; construction activities on upper floors may continue without waiting for the filling application below, as the filling application can be done anytime, saving very valuable actual construction time.
▶︎ Void space creation; the void space that gets created under the domes has a net width of 59 cm between Ø125 mm columns; meaning any sort of electrical and mechanical pipes, cables etc. can be passed in it before and after construction.
▶︎ Fast and easy installation; as fast as 20 m2/hour. Installation does not require any skilled labor.
▶︎ Ramp construction; PVC pipes can be cut at any size needed to create a ramp.
▶︎ Continuous concrete surface; any sort of covering application (epoxy paint, wood flooring, asphalt etc.) can be applied on the concrete surface very easily. Similarly, separator walls could be installed on the surface directly.
▶︎ Heat and sound insulation; the void space that gets created provides heat and sound insulation.
▶︎ Radon gas and damp barrier; if used above foundations and properly ventilated, it is the most economical and safest way for removing radon gas, humidity and damp from living quarters.
▶︎ Environmental value; because the disposable formworks are made of recycled PP they help to gain considerable LEED certificate points.

ABS Level | Fixed height disposable formworks for lightweight fillings


The ‘Level’ series of ABS Disposable Formworks made of recycled plastic with fixed heights of 5, 10 and 15 cm are used to create reinforced concrete raised floors in commercial or industrial structures quickly, easily and extremely economically. The formworks were specifically designed to allow cable trays and/or plumbing pipes to pass through.
The system can be used as an alternative to all modular raised floors applications with metal pedestals. In addition, each commercial area to be filled with 8-10 cm dry screed can be converted to a reinforced concrete raised floor using ABS Level Disposable Formworks and junction boxes. The volume that normally would have been lost, can now be used to pass through electrical as well as mechanical installations increasing the total usage area of the building.
▶︎ Most economic application; it is more than 60% more economic than modular raised floors with metal pedestals and composite panels.
▶︎ Passage of technical installations; almost any sort of technical (electrical, mechanical, etc.) installations can be passed through the void space that gets created under the reinforced raised floor. Through the use of junction boxes fixed at certain intervals the space can be reached from above at very low operational costs.
▶︎ High load bearing capacity; hundreds of columns, arches and domes that get created in the concrete form a continuous structure with a very high load bearing capacity.
▶︎ Continuous concrete surface; any sort of covering application (epoxy paint, wood flooring, asphalt etc.) can be applied on the surface very easily.
▶︎ Installation of separators; any sort of covering application (epoxy paint, wood flooring, asphalt etc.) can be applied on the surface very easily.
▶︎ Fast and easy installation; as fast as 100 m2hour. Installation does not require any skilled labor.
▶︎ Heat and sound insulation; the void space will provide heat and sound insulation and if ventilated it could also deter humidity and mildew.
▶︎ Environmental value; because the disposable formworks are made of recycled PP they help to gain considerable LEED certificate points.
