Syflex®

Construction Formwork for Curves and Edges for the use with In-situ Concrete - Syflex®

Straight lines, curves and corners can be created with ease using the flexible shuttering system. Syflex® is the ideal solution for slabs, edge and strip foundation formwork.

The Syflex system consists of a formwork plank and system eccentric, which can be quickly fastened to or detached from a beam (using a ground spike or similar). It is manufactured with a special plastic, which making it flexible and light. Because of the properties of the materials, Syflex is excellently suited to curves, corners, and straight lines. You can view the application of Syflex® system in our product video.

Profile sections provide extra lightness and enable two planks to be connected via a connection system. The smooth surface and flexibility of the formwork support allow it to be reused several times.
