From your site drawings, we produce detailed schedules for ease of placement on site. Our design service is then followed up with after sales support for assistance during installation.
The Double Wire…
Novoform has introduced the ‘double wire’; a second mid-span wire to enhance the rigidity along the length of the panel. More importantly, should the panel require cutting in half (e.g. for corner pieces or at the end of a beam run) both ends of the panel remain sealed. The double wire has several advantages namely: the end wires give fixing points for tying; the lighter cross wires make cutting the panels in half easier; and, with Health & Safety in mind, there are no long overhanging wires protruding as a result of cutting the panel. The inclusion of the extra middle wire enables us to cut down the panels in our factory to give the option of cheaper transportation costs to site for smaller quantities.
Another advantage of this unique design is that the 15mm gap between the wires has been designed to specifically allow tie rods to pass through when, with use of formwork clamps, provides a solution for above ground situations.
Typical section on centre of NovoForm Formwork
NovoForm is made from welded mesh panels, traditionally with 150mm x 75mm aperture. In production, the mesh is encapsulated in film and passed through a heat tunnel to be shrink wrapped.
The panels measure 2.4m long and are available to order in widths of 450mm up to 3.0m
In-House Mesh Bending Service
Devoran Metals can supply Novoform panels in flat strips or bent into U-Sections or L-Sections. We offer a full in-house mesh bending service on purpose built machinery and as a result can deliver your order quickly and efficiently direct to site ready for placement in the ground. We also keep a large range of concrete and plastic spacers in stock ready to suit.
