AFS Logicwall® is a fibre cement permanent formwork solution for internal and external concrete walling. Its lightweight panels are created by bonding durable CSR Cemintel® fibre cement sheets to galvanised steel stud frames.
Available in a range of thicknesses to suit most architectural and engineering demands, logicwall® is AFS walling’s concrete formwork solution ideal for multi-residential and a myriad of commercial applications.
Logicwall® panels can be erected by hand and then core-filled to form fire and sound rated, load-bearing walls. The fibre cement stays-in-place as a sacrificial formwork, providing an even, high quality substrate for applied finishes including skim coating, acrylic rendering and painting.
The system is ideal for applications that include external facades, party walls, blade walls, corridor walls, balustrades, lift and stair cores and shear walls.
Each panel incorporates the functions of permanent sacrificial formwork, framework, hard-wearing finish and deep beam transfer in one fast-to-erect solution.
During a construction project, it’s important to monitor efficiencies with time and expenditure. Add to this the pressure of deadlines and having to coordinate several trades, and even a project that utilises standard prefabricated materials can risk financial blowout due to excessive handling, construction times and structural engineering component inclusions.
As a manufacturer of revolutionary permanent formwork for concrete walls, AFS lead the market in efficient construction materials with afs logicwall®, the premier core-filled fibre cement construction module for building internal and external walls. Eliminating several costly factors, logicwall® is fast-becoming the prefab material of choice for structural engineers, architects, developers and builders.
One panel, full structural support
Engineers look to AFS Logicwall® for its ability to not only function as a wall and permanent formwork in one, but as a deep beam transfer panel. With this, an engineer can fulfil an architect’s plans of creating large open span spaces that require no column support, creating added valuable space in carparks, living areas and the like. Logicwall® is also compliant with AS3600 acoustic and fire ratings exceeding NCC requirements.
Minimal labour and handling
Don’t let the costs of handling and manpower eat into your project’s prosperity. After being shop-drawn and custom-made to plan in the AFS factory, Logicwall®’s lightweight nature means that upon delivery no tower cranes are required for lifting. And no other types of crane are required – individual panels can be erected by hand, after which they are core-filled with AFS’s specified easy-flow concrete mix.
Builders can save waste and offcut disposal costs with AFS Formwork. Logicwall® modules are made to measure, and delivered to your site ready for installation. The result is a massive reduction in onsite preparatory work, which in turn drastically reduces expenses for skips and waste removal.
Full service delivered
Rather than relying on third-party transport providers, AFS Formwork also have their own logistics service, which means no waiting for availability – your logicwall® delivery is scheduled to seamlessly coincide with the design and manufacturing process, so that not a minute is wasted between manufacture completion and the earliest delivery date possible.
The big finish
Eliminate the added expense of constructing stud and plasterboard finishing. Logicwall® also doubles as an excellent hard-wearing substrate for applied finishes such as skim coating, acrylic render and paint.
