ABS Plus is an adjustable-height disposable concrete formwork system made of recycled plastic. The system is also called 'void formers', 'permanent formwork' or 'single-use formwork'. It creates reinforced concrete raised floors up to 300 cm, thus providing a light, fast, easy and economical filling in any structure.
To accommodate project-specific heights, the PVC pipes are cut to specification at factory before delivery. Alternatively, standard-length pipes can be cut on-site by the customer fitting exact heights.
Unlike similar systems, the ABS Plus system consists of 2 legs per m2, which, in addition to the advantages listed below, provides additional ease of application and significant cost savings on concrete and steel. ABS Plus system can be used for any sort of lightweight filling application. Uses include sunken slab fillings, landscape fillings to create a hard surface, inverted beam fillings, fillings between foundation footings, carpark ramps, pool decks, elevator/staircase hallway fillings and crawlspace construction.
