Alcom formwork system
modular formwork in alumium.
The modular ALCOM formwork from Cometal is a fast and flexible usable formwork system for all your concrete projects.
This formwork can be used for: wall formwork, column formwork, beam formwork, foundation formwork, …
The ALCOM formwork is made from a high-grade aluminium framework with a high-grade concrete multiply made from tropical hardwood, provided with a 450 gr/m² coating. Thanks to the aluminium framework, the panels are light enough to be handled and set up manually and the use of a crane is unnecessary. The specific design of the Cometal peripheral profile of the panels and the assorted connectors allow all the formwork elements to be connected to one another in every direction, which results in a very flexible formwork system. Panels can be connected perfectly vertically by means of extended vice clamps and this up to a height of 10 meter and more, taking the pouring speed of 1m/hour into consideration. Any raising of up to 400 mm is performed with an extended variable vice clamp. Fitting pieces of 150 mm or more are made with a profiled timber beam. Fitting pieces of less than 150 mm are made with variable vice clamps.
With the standard Cometal profile it’s possible to connect the ALCOM formwork with all our other formwork systems.
The ALCOM formwork panels give a finish to the concrete which is more than satisfactory for the most common construction applications such as basement walls, retaining walls, partition walls in infrastructure works…
