Slab Formwork


Simple, economical and sustainable

VarioMax is a flexible, lightweight support system, assembled from only a few parts, that is used for the construction of precast floor slabs and in-situ concrete slabs. It comprises only three basic ­component types: prop, double beam and slide-in beam. VarioMax needs up to 50 % fewer props and components than for standard methods and reduces the labour ­requirement accordingly. The system excels by its low weight, straightforward handling and flexible adaptation to any layout.

VarioMax is fully compatible with MEVA props and shoring tower systems. The ­aluminium double and slide-in beams with their grid-free telescopic function are lightweight, durable and designed for heavy duty, making them more sustainable than H20 beams. Their powder-coated finish reduces concrete adhesion, which in turn ­allows prompt, resource-efficient cleaning.
