Stremaform Construction Joint Formwork

From innovation and development to manufacture, Max Frank’s Stremaform Stay-In-Place construction joint system speeds up construction, improves build quality, reduces the need for skilled labour and saves you money.

The product consists of a special expanded metal mesh which replaces the traditional formwork.  It stays in the concrete and eliminates any need for formwork removal or scabbling of the surface prior to the second pour. Tests carried out by the Technical University of Brunswick show that the resistance of these construction joints to shear forces is identical to that for monolithic concrete.

Available independently of Fletcher Reinforcing’s Steel Offer or in conjunction with it, Stremaform construction joint formwork is ideal for construction joints in:

  • Slab on grade floors
  • Steel composite flooring
  • Ground or perimeter beans
  • Slab to column construction joints

Features & Benefits

  • Stremaform eliminates any need for formwork removal and scabbling
  • Formwork installation speed dramatically sped up when heavily congested with reinforcing
  • Dimensionally stable and designed to withstand concrete pressure during the pour
  • More consistent performance of concrete bond at construction joints resulting in a monolithic joint
  • Reduced task duration and greater overlap with lead & lag tasks reduces the critical path duration
