Acrow Coreform System
The Acrow Coreform System has been developed to provide a climbing, self-supporting formwork system for the forming of lift and stairwell cores, producing a flush finish concrete surface with no surface steps. Coreform is quick and easy in initial assembly, and to strip and move from pour to pour.
The Acrow Coreform System is compatible with the Acrowall Panel Systems, and a full range of ancillary equipment is available to provide upper level platforms.
Acrow Slim-Lite Soldier System
A range of accessories allows the soldiers to be used for single lift, full height or jump form, for either single- or double-faced formwork applications. The Acrow Slim-Lite Soldier System is equally useful for the construction of circular walls, and can also be used in the construction of heavy-duty shoring, overhead protection structures and platforms.
Made from high yield steel, Acrow Slim-Lite Soldiers are available in a variety of sizes to suit different applications, and are compact, light, easy to handle, and ideal for confined spaces.
Acrow Slim-Max Soldier System
The high strength of the Acrow Slim-Max Soldier makes it ideal for large crane handled formwork shutters with accessories to enable a range of types of walers to be attached to it. The soldier can be used for single lift, full height or jump forms for single- or double-face formwork arrangements.
The Slim-Max Soldier can also be used in the construction of heavy-duty shoring, overhead protection structures and platforms or simply as a high strength beam.
Acrowall-60 is a robust and versatile, galvanised steel frame panel system with a 14mm plywood face. Weighing less than 30kg/m2, 2700mm x 750mm panels may be manually handled or built into a large crane handled assembly for fast movement of formwork. Available in a range of sizes and with an extensive range of accessories, the Acrowall-60 panel formwork system can meet an array of configurations for your construction project.
The inbuilt strength in the design of the Acrowall-60 system makes the assembly simple with a minimum of components. The aligning clamp locks the panels rigidly together and accurately in line. Shutter assemblies stay free of twist when being crane handled.
Acrowall-60 has a maximum permissible concrete pressure of 60kPa for single panel height form arrangements up to 2.7m or 55kPa for height extended form arrangements.
Ideally suited to the heavy civil sector – based on the standard European system of the 300 mm grid panel Acrowall-80 wall forming system offers 100% compatibility with some widely used existing European systems whilst offering higher panel strength and durability.
Acrowall-80 is a robust and versatile, powder coated steel frame panel with an 18mm plywood face. Available in a range of sizes and with an extensive range of accessories, the Acrowall-80 panel formwork system can meet an array of configurations for your construction project.
The built in-strength in the design of the Acrowall-80 system makes the assembly simple with a minimum of components. The aligning wedge clamps lock the panels rigidly together and accurately in line. Shutter assembly stay free of twist when being crane handled.
Acrowall-80 has a maximum permissible concrete pressure of 80kPa for single panel height form arrangements up to 3.3m – maximum wall heights up to 13.5m
Acrow Supercuplok Scaffolding System
With a leg load capacity of up to 75 kN, the SuperCuplok system is ideal for heavy-duty civil and commercial construction or high-rise scaffolding and loading bays.
Acrow Props are fast to erect in three simple steps, and are able to be handled by a single person, ensuring reliable and economical formwork and scaffolding applications.
Acrow Props are available in five sizes covering a range from 1050mm to 4900mm with axial compression working load limits ranging from 7kN to 42.5kN.
Acrow V-Shore System
The Acrow V-Shore System is a simple three component system which uses frames, braces and jacks and offers the benefits of saving costs on inventory, improved productivity and design versatility.
Acrow V-Shore design involves large grids and offers flexibility of support arrangements. These, in turn, make it easier for the engineer to increase or decrease frame grid positions relative to the concrete thickness to be supported. Acrow V-Shore also offers a shoring capability with an infinite height adjustment and working load-carrying capacity of up to 35.1kN per leg, in accordance with AS3610.
It is the ideal system for civil engineering projects such as the construction of highway bridges or the laying of heavy slabs or beams.
Ancillary components are available to cater for the small make-up areas encountered on most projects such as columns and perimeter walls. The system adapts to these areas with complete simplicity. Quick to erect and dismantle, AcrowForm’s lightweight and durable aluminium panel system allows for the handling and placing of panels by one person resulting in speed of job delivery and labour cost reduction – the fundamental advantage of using AcrowForm.
The primary product attributes of GASS are
- Provision of load capacity up to 140kN
- Minimal loss of strength at any height
- Light weight and easy to erect
- The ability to brace at 45 degree angles
- Can span up to 3 meters on light commercial applications.
- Ideally suited to “table form” applications along with conventional strike and fix flexibility
Acrow Aluminium GASS Prop
The Acrow Aluminium GASS Prop is manufactured using high strength aluminium with leg loads up to 130kN unbraced which permits versatility across multiple uses including falsework support and backpropping.
The primary product attributes of Acrow Aluminium GASS Prop are:
- Provision of load capacity up to 130kN
- Light weight and easy to erect and dismantle leading to significant labour savings on site
Acrow Powershore 30
Heavy-duty high load application
Acrow Powershore 30 is a high load shoring system that provides a fast, efficient and versatile falsework structure. The simplicity of the coupling of strong vertical Standards joined together by truss type horizontal bracing frames enables towers to be easily and safely erected.
Corner braces are attached at apposing corners and alternated between each level to maintain squareness and rigidity during crane handling of the tower throughout its height. Adjustable bases at the bottom of the tower and adjustable bases with U-head attachments at the top of the tower provide infinite height adjustment.
The built in strength of each individual galvanised component contributes to construction of a support tower capable of supporting a leg loads in excess of 300kN based on tower and bracing frame configuration.
