Max Frank Pecafil

From innovation and development to manufacture, Max Frank’s Pecafil Stay-In-Place Formwork system speeds up construction, improves build quality, reduces the need for skilled labour and saves you money. Pecafil Installation is available exclusively at Fletcher Reinforcing.

The specially manufactured material is constructed from a steel mesh in a wide range of sheet and strip sizes and shaped to meet the application. Its distinctive yellow outer layer is heat-shrunk puncture resistant polyethylene, made from non-toxic, naturally occurring hydrocarbons.

Available independently of Fletcher Reinforcing’s steel offer or in conjunction with it, Pecafil Stay-In-Place Formwork is ideal for formwork on:

  • Strip foundations
  • Ground beams
  • Circular or complicated formwork
  • Pile caps

Pecafil Features & Benefits

  • Reduced critical path duration due to lead & lag tasks being nearly fully overlapped
  • Fasters installation resulting in reduced labour cost
  • No stripping, cleaning or returning of the formwork as the formwork stays in place
  • Possible to prefabricate off-site with reinforcing steel prior to delivery
  • Backfilling can commence as soon as formwork is placed
  • Smaller excavations as less working room is required
  • Better site access due to reduced formwork space requirements
  • Light enough for one person to handle with ease.
