Column Formwork


Fast, efficient casting of high-quality columns

A technical tour de force

Drawing on numerous standard MEVA product and quality features, the CaroFalt column formwork concept impresses down to the last detail. The system comprises four identical panels that are hinged together like windmill blades to allow rapid deployment. The assembled unit can be rolled to the next work location using clip-on castors or lifted to the next storey by crane in a single operation.

While the alkus all-plastic facings deliver fair-faced concrete quality, the column arises can also be chamfered through the incorporation of triangular fillets. The high fresh concrete load capacity of 100kN/m² allows the rapid completion of high vertical pours.

The system has integrated safety functions as standard for a trouble-free project, including a working platform and integral access ladder with rear protection.

Safe, foldable and wheelable

Optimum size range

  • Rapid performance of high pours for 20 to 60cm column cross-sections
  • Square or rectangular column cross-sections, adjustable in 5cm increments

Closed hollow frame profile made of steel

  • Structurally robust, hot-dip galvanised with MEVA finish, making it durable and easy to clean

Easy-to-use CF spanner

  • The square or rectangular column cross-section can be adjusted in 5cm increments
  • using the perforated rail
  • CF spanner allows fast and easy opening and closing of the column formwork, even from the ladder

Simple, time-saving height adjustment

  • Only one component is needed for ­rapid, ­reliable panel connection: the MEVA  assembly lock. This allows single-handed fitting and just a few hammer blows suffice to achieve a strong panel connection

Bottom extension

  • For varying pour heights, the column formwork can be easily shortened or extended at the bottom
  • alkus all-plastic facing for smooth robust surface
  • No water absorption, resistant to swelling and shrinkage
  • The smooth, robust surface guarantees a high-quality concrete finish, even after heavy use
