Betomax offers a broad range of formwork accessories, which may be used for most commercially available formwork systems.
In order to maintain the assumed spacing between the formwork panels, we utilise formwork ties together with their accessory equipment. A formwork tie is a threaded rod or wire, the task of which is to transfer the expansion force emerging as a result of pressure of the concrete on the formwork panels. A spacer covering the tie to protect it against contamination by the concrete mix also prevents the formwork elements from moving with respect to each other. A spacer is a type of plastic or concrete pipe, the use of which, beside protecting the formwork elements against shifting, also allows the tie to be recovered and utilised again.
