PERI, a leading German formwork and scaffolding specialist, has updated three of its useful apps for tablets and smartphones in a bid to make construction site operations easier.
The Formwork Load Calculator, Multiflex Configurator and ST 100 Stacking Tower Configurator, which boast an extensive range of benefits, are now available on the company’s website.
“Calculating fresh concrete pressure has become ever more important since the use of highly flowable concrete became more common. This presents the construction site team with the important and often difficult task of calculating how quickly and with which concrete and which wall formwork concreting can be executed,” says a Peri spokesman.
To do this, the application takes into account the possible concreting speed for defined Peri wall formwork systems, depending on the selected concreting height and the deformation requirements.
Peri’s wall formwork systems Maximo 330, Maximo 270, Trio 270, Trio 330 and Domino 250 are directly selectable on site, along with their anchoring systems DW 15, DW 20, MX 15 and MX 18 for calculation of the maximum rate of rise.
Turning to the Peri Multiflex Configurator, he says: “This app enables users to work out very quickly the permissible spacing for the secondary and primary beams, and the resulting prop spacing for the Peri slab formwork Multiflex GT 24/GT 24 and Multiflex VT 20K/VT 20K.
“Once the user enters the values for slab thickness and secondary beam spacing, the Multiflex Configurator will calculate the maximum permissible spacing for his primary beams and props with the associated prop loads and maximum cantilever length. By entering the clear room height, the user can also view the prop extension lengths and a list of possible prop types from the extensive Peri range.”
Meanwhile, the Peri ST 100 Stacking Tower Configurator helps users to define key values safely for shoring systems.
“With the ST 100 Stacking Tower Configurator, users can quickly determine the permissible leg loads and the minimum loads against sliding with ease and precision,” says the spokesman.
Results are based on the Type Test TP 12 004 of the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) and on Peri’s performance data. The tool enables users to choose from extensive configuration scenarios.
