Usage areas of disposable formworks with lightweight filling applications heights ranging from 5 to 300 cm
Lightweight Filling on Floor
Level variances between different usage areas within building parts can be eliminated by constructing reinforced raised floors through the use of ABS Disposable Formworks. The existing structure becomes only as heavy as the concrete in the legs and the topping concrete covering the disposable formworks. Thus, the filling made with ABS Disposable Formwork is the lightest application that can be made on any floor of the structure.
Sunken Slab Filling
Especially in commercial buildings, sunken slabs may be required on ground floors or podium areas. By using ABS Disposable Formworks, these areas can be brought to the required height as in the architectural plans. The solution is the lightest and most practical one of levelling such differences.
In addition to being the lightest filling application, ABS Disposable Formworks are also preferred for creating hard surfaces in landscape projects since they eliminate the risk of long-term cracks completely.
Inverted Beam Filling
In cases where the beams are not desired to be formed on the ceiling due to technical or architectural reasons, the beams are made on the upper slab as an 'inverted beam'. In order to use this type of slab/flooring (for example, car parks) it is necessary to lightly fill in between the beams and cover the area with concrete. The application with ABS Disposable Formworks is the lightest type of filling.
Filling Between Foundation Footings
ABS Disposable Formworks can be used very effectively to fill the space between the column/wall footings on top of a raft foundation. As the filled space is ironically 95% hollow, it can be used for MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) installation passages. The same void space can be used as a flood prevention measure as well.
The indoor car parking ramps made by using ABS Disposable Formworks are more economical and lighter compared to the conventional sheer wall and beam construction.
Pool Deck Filling
Constructing a swimming pool on a flat reinforced concrete foundation or floor slab is much easier and economical then alternative designs. Once the pool sheer walls are erected the pool deck can be constructed using ABS Disposable Formworks. Because the filling is empty inside it could be used as installation passages as well.
Elevator/Staircase Hallway Filling
Especially in office buildings where modular raised floors are used, level variances between elevator/staircase hallways and the office space is eliminated in the most economical and lightest way by using ABS Disposable Formworks. Because the filling is empty inside it could be used as installation passages as well.
Crawl Space Construction
ABS Disposable Formworks are used to raise the ground floor of the structure above the natural ground by constructing a crawl space very easily and fast.
Reinforced Concrete Raised Floor
Due to the fact that the reinforced concrete floors constructed using ABS Disposable Formworks are 95% empty, the void space could be used to pass electrical/mechanical installations in a manner similar to modular raised floors.
