Costs in the construction business are exploding? The Austrian company RINGER GmbH has developed a time- and cost-saving slab formwork system that was recently ranked the fastest system on the market in an independent comparative study. It can also be witnessed in action at the bauma trade fair in Munich at the end of October 2022.
For decades, the Upper Austrian family-owned company RINGER has been known throughout the industry for its innovative solutions in scaffolding and formwork construction. Thanks to its high level of customer orientation, RINGER is now one of the industry giants in Austria and within Europe.
Efficiency on the construction site
The innovative AluDEK system from RINGER combines the advantages of a modular slab formwork system with those of a conventional slab formwork system. It consists of only three main components: the 1,35x1,35m big aluminium panel (1,82m²) equipped with 12mm high-quality plywood, the AluDEK head for all applications (edge, joint and corner areas) as well as 20 kN props according to EN1065.
The low weight of only 16kg/m² enables fast and safe installation from ground level.
Das geringe Gewicht der Schalelemente von nur 16 kg/m² ermöglicht ein zügiges und sicheres Arbeiten vom Boden aus. The installation is very simple: the panels are hooked into the AluDEK heads at the top on one side, folded up with the assembly bar and hooked into the next head.
Designed for maximum efficiency
Small compensation areas and walls are flexibly infilled with compatible AL2000 wall formwork panels as well as with infill beams and 3S formwork sheets from RINGER.Therefore, any floor plan can be realized quickly - for slab thicknesses up to 35cm without additional support. Thicker slabs can also be realized with the appropriate additional support.
Stripping, cleaning and storage are also quick and easy. Thanks to its compact design, AluDEK is one of the most economical modular slab formwork system in terms of transport volume. RINGER Systems are optimized for easy handling and maximum efficiency. This pays off.
The fastes among modular slab formwork systems.
The reputed "Institut for time management and construction business consultancy" in Neu-Isenburg (Germany, www.betriebsberatung-bau.de) evaluated 18 slab formwork systems on different floor plans and room heights and published the results in its latest handbook.Except for one superstructure variant, in which RINGER AluDEK was as fast as the competition, AluDEK proved to be the significantly fastest system in all categories. Even compared to the runner-up, AluDEK still achieved an average 10% lead.*
- Stripping & forming of the fastes floor plan within 0,14h/m2
- On average only 0,19h/m2
The outstanding performance of the RINGER system is appreciated by customers both nationally and internationally. Sales Manager Thomas Ringer is pleased about this, but not very surprised: "The company RINGER is an Austrian industry leader in formwork and scaffolding construction, a strong family business that delivers what it promises." He says it's always about finding thought-out solutions that improve construction-site work to be faster and more effective. With the innovative AluDEK system, RINGER has achieved a great success in this respect and a lasting one.
The AluDEK system from RINGER can be seen in action at the training center in Regau and from October 24 to 30, 2022 at the bauma trade fair in Munich, Hall 3B, Booth 339.
