Design and plan with afs logicwall® – permanent concrete wall formwork

Plan freedom in construction

As an architect or engineer, you need to make sure that your choice of prefab building materials is going to assist with your plan, not limit it. To stand out from the crowd, you need the flexibility to be able to create structures that make a statement or fulfil a specific owner’s or tenant’s purpose, and not just create another generic general purpose building due to limitations with standard concrete wall formwork. You also need to maximise labour time to keep costs down.

To take advantage of the near-endless configurations that logicwall® can be designed into. AFS have created several useful industry resources to help you gain maximum benefit and accuracy when planning a development project.

NOTE: It is the responsibility of those using and designing with AFS Systems such as logicwall® and rediwall®, including but not limited to builders, designers, consultants and engineers to ensure that the use of product is compliant with all relevant National Construction Code (NCC), Standards and local Authorities having jurisdiction requirements such as, but no limited to structural adequacy, acoustic, fire resistance / combustibility, thermal, and weather tightness provisions.

 

Performance overview

When making the choice of which concrete wall formwork solution to go with, you need to know from the outset that the product meets the criteria of even the most stringent building code standards. With single and double reinforcement options, there is a logicwall® panel that is right for your project.

Logicwall® meets or exceeds the Australian Standard for concrete structures and is CodeMark Certified reinforcing that logicwall® complies with the National Construction Code (NCC) and AS3600-2009 (Concrete Structures) and evidences its suitability for use in the design of a concrete structure.
