PASCHAL with innovative lightweight formwork Neor at bauma 2019The new PASCHAL lightweight formwork Neor has been specifically developed to meet the demands of customers and current requirements in the construction industry. Another development focus was the increased demand for a product in the lightweight formwork segment. This resulted in a formwork that combines the versatility of the tried and tested Modular formwork with all the system properties of modern lightweight formwork.
Less weight, better performance
The small-size elements of the PASCHAL Neor lightweight formwork have a maximum weight of 40 kg and can therefore be assembled and moved on site by hand without a crane or other transport aids. Alternatively, if the formwork is to be transported by crane, the crane attachments of the PASCHAL universal Modular formwork/GE can be attached to the side bars of the lightweight formwork.
A further bonus of the new formwork system is the low frame height of only 7.5 cm, which ensures that storage and transport volumes remain particularly low.
The Neor is characterised by a considerable weight reduction of approx. 25% compared to the PASCHAL universal Modular formwork/GE. At the same time, the Neor lightweight formwork boasts significantly higher fresh concrete pressure properties. At 50kN/m², the fresh concrete pressure is approx. 40% higher than with the PASCHAL universal Modular formwork/GE.
The base panel 90 x 150 cm with four internal tie-point openings in each case for a wide range of applications.
Clever design for more flexibility and speed
The new Neor lightweight formwork meets all market requirements for a modern formwork system: It can be used universally and is ideally suited for the production of foundations, beams and walls.
Like its sister models PASCHAL wall formwork LOGO.3 and PASCHAL universal Modular formwork/GE, the new lightweight formwork features optimum element sorting. The base panel 90x150 cm is ideal for the construction of foundations, beams and walls. Thanks to internal tie-points, the panels can be used both vertically and horizontally. A floor height of up to 3 m can be formed with just one extension of elements. The formwork is also supplemented by a 180x300 cm large-size element with which even large surfaces can be quickly and economically formed.
Due to the small number of tie-points, the PASCHAL Neor lightweight formwork saves time and labour costs. With only 3 tie-points at a concreting height of 3 metres, lightweight formwork can be used particularly quickly and economically. For tie-point on top (by spacer strap) with the large-size panel at 3 m, only two tie-points in concrete are necessary.
The issue of height offset was also taken into account in the development of the lightweight formwork. The oblong holes integrated in the frame allow the formwork panels to be offset in height relative to each other.
Effective, secure connecting pieces
The connecting bolt known from the universal Modular formwork/GE is used as a light, friction-locked and, moreover, cost-effective connecting piece. In the future there will also be the possibility of the clamp connection. A corresponding connecting part will be developed.
The new lightweight formwork has versatile functional profiles for attaching accessories such as crane attachments, fall protection or support for walers.
The proven connecting keybolt is used as connecting piece.
Functional and resilient thanks to proven PASCHAL system properties
The Neor lightweight formwork is equipped with cross profiles similar to those of the PASCHAL LOGO.3 wall formwork. These can be used as practical functional profiles for attaching accessories such as the suspending piece for props or the PASCHAL Multi waler. LOGO.3 accessories can be attached to the cross profile of the new lightweight formwork. Another advantage in terms of flexibility is that the new lightweight formwork can be simply combined with the Modular formwork system.
PASCHAL also relies on the resistant, impact-resistant flat steel frame for its Neor lightweight formwork. With the new system, customers can therefore also rely on the product longevity and quality with which PASCHAL has become synonymous.
PASCHAL also remains true to its principles in the area of plywood and relies on the renewable raw material timber instead of plastics: The PASCHAL lightweight formwork is equipped with a 12 mm thick, multi-layered and particularly durable birch plywood panel from sustainable forestry.
Neor is expected to be available in 2020.
