A new concept to the modular steel formwork system, the flights and landings will be supplied together in one complete formwork set, with reinforcement and steel bearing connections into RC walls.
The landings are supported by RHS which are housed in mild steel enclosures (encased within the concrete) on the landings. These RHS are then slid through these enclosures into pre-formed pockets into the stair core walls. Sliding these connectors into the pockets gives the tolerance required to move the unit as required.
The contractor can now pour the concrete into the formwork and into the pockets forming a solid connection between the stair formwork and the stair core structure providing the robustness that UK regulations require.
This way of working absolves the need for any ledger angles or any type of extra unsightly steelwork below the soffits that Architects don't want to see.
Units can be craned in as either flights, half and quarter landings. Either way, time can be saved as the building rises. Flexistair staff and their Engineers are experienced in working together with contractors to provide the best solution for the end user.
Benefits Of Using This System
Clear soffits, enabling them to be used to hang any sort of services if required.
Robust designs all backed up by Structural Engineers calculations.
No extra connections required.
All formwork manufactured in controlled conditions in the FlexiGroup factory.
