German formwork systems specialist Paschal-Werk G Maier will be returning to Saudi Build in Riyadh for the eighth time this year, where it will present its wall, column and shaft formwork as well as the H20 beam for high, horizontal concrete structures.

“Given its long-standing presence in the Arabian construction market, Paschal is concentrating its exhibits on the primary applications in the Arabian world,” says a spokesman for the company.

At its 40-sq-m booth at the premier construction show, the company will demonstrate the practical application options, the system diversity and the compatibility of the systems and components for quick and easy use in reinforced concrete construction. Upon request, highly trained formwork experts will show visitors the ease of handling of the systems and also some of the numerous constructions and projects completed.

At the stand, Paschal will be presenting and demonstrating the Modular formwork systems, Logo.3, TTR and H20 beam, amongst other systems.

• Modular formwork: This universal formwork is preferred for use in the construction of foundations, walls, columns, beams, shafts and precast concrete components. Thanks to the comprehensive range of elements, it can be used both as hand-set and large-size formwork. The modular design principle enables simple and quick handling, even by unskilled labour, the spokesman points out.

• Modular column formwork: As a practical expansion of the Modular formwork system, Paschal will be exhibiting the adjustable Modular column formwork, which can help form both square and rectangular reinforced concrete columns with external dimensions from 20 to 50 cm in increments of 5 cm.

“The simple windmill principle allows you to form a wide variety of different reinforced concrete columns from just a few individual panels of the adjustable Modular column formwork. Depending on availability and space constraints, the formwork systems can be moved completely by using a crane or can be dismantled into individual components and transported, assembled and dismantled manually,” the spokesman explains.

• Logo.3: This wall formwork system will be displayed in its steel and aluminium versions. The robust formwork elements with profiled flat frames represent robustness and durability. The elements can be used both horizontally and vertically. Connection of the elements is performed by using a light wedge clamp that weighs only 1.8 kg, or by using a multi-clamp. The comprehensive range of elements also includes multi elements for corners, columns and stop ends. “Moreover, the Logo.3 formwork system is a winner when it comes to large-scale concrete constructions with minimum tie points of just 0.62 tie points per sq m,” the spokesman says.

• TTR: This trapezoidal girder formwork, with its continuously adjustable diameter from 2 to 5 m and from 5 m to design requirements, provides well-formed concrete curvatures that correspond exactly to the specifications and drawings when executed.

System enhancements enable usage on and to sloping surfaces, and compatibility with all additional Paschal formwork systems enables creative and unique concrete forms to be implemented for aesthetic reasons and/or due to design requirements. Pre-assembly is carried out in the factory and the low proportion of tie points of just 0.28 to 0.55 tie points per m enable shortest possible forming times.

• H20 beam: Paschal Deck is a versatile slab formwork for ceilings in residential and industrial buildings featuring the H20 beam. The H20 beam comes in lengths of 245 cm to 600 cm. The permitted shear force of the 20 cm high wooden beam is defined as Q=11.0 kN and the permitted bending moment as M=5.0 kNm. The H20 beam can be adapted by simple overlapping; hence it is not important if the beam functions as main beam or cross beam, says the spokesman.

Paschal can be visited at Stand 217, Hall 3, at Saudi Build.
