Vertical Bar Locator (VBL)
The afs rediwall® Vertical Bar Locator (VBL) allows for a more streamlined installation process, making the insertion of reinforcement bars quicker, easier and more efficient, with more accurate concrete coverage.
A three-piece PVC panel that forms a corner between walls meeting at 90 degrees. Designed to allow for removal of the outside 90-degree corner cap for easy placement and inspection of internal reinforcement. Cap is refitted for concrete filling. Adjoining panels are fitted using the male to female clip-in system. *Available for 110mm, 156mm and 200mm.
An extruded PVC panel used to adjust the length of a wall. Adjoining panels are fitted using the male to female clip-in system. Used primarily close to the end of a wall. The female/female panel has two internal webs with kidney shaped holes for single, or double reo bar placement which can be easily changed by inverting the panel. Ideal for blade columns.
Female-to-female joiners are used for joining two male ends, particularly useful at a 90-degree corner. It is recommended to use one female/female joiner panel for each 90-degree corner.
H-Joiners are slide together PVC extruded panels primarily used horizontally on external walls. They are laid along the straightened top of panels to act as a bottom track for the next level of panels to be installed. H-Joiners can also be used vertically as a wall make-up piece and can be slid into a gap in the wall of 50mm or less and screw fixed to adjoining panels.
A slide together PVC extruded panel primarily used horizontally on external walls where an edge-form slab is to be formed. It is laid along the straightened top of the panels to act as a bottom track for the next level of panels and to assist with the edge-form preparation.
A PVC extruded panel that is fixed vertically to the face of a through wall to start a T-Wall, where the T-Wall is close to 90 degrees. T-Joiners have holes in the face to assist alignment when drilling the through wall for reo bar placement. Adjoining panels are fitted using the male to female clip-in system.
The PVC floor track and floor angles are used to set the bottom line of the wall. Laid flat, the floor track has large holes to accommodate for starter bars. The sides are used for both locating and screw fixing to the bottom of panels.
PVC end caps or fibre cement strips are used for capping off wall ends and openings. A PVC slide on connection with a 30mm side for fixing with screws or glue is able to be installed before or after the wall is filled, they must be propped when filling, if a flat end is required.

AFS Rediwall® Design Performance & Compliance
AFS Rediwall® is GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) certified to comply with Best Practice PVC. In accordance with the GBCA (Green Building Council of Australia) PVC guideline.
AFS Rediwall® is a Silver Status member of the PVC Stewardship Program (administered by the Vinyl Council of Australia and independently audited) which is an on-going, long-term, voluntary undertaking by the Australian PVC industry to recognise and progressively address, relevant environmental, health and safety issues along the PVC product life-cycle within responsible, deliverable timeframes.
The program focusses on five key themes associated with the PVC life cycle:
- Best practice manufacturing
- Safe and sustainable use of additives
- Energy and Greenhouse Gas Management
- Resource efficiency
- Transparency and engagement
As a signatory to the stewardship program, AFS is committed to the manufacture and supply of sustainable solutions to the building industry in an environmentally responsible manner. To recycle any AFS Rediwall® products please drop off the items at the following locations in each state:

- AS5637.1 (ISO 9705) Reaction to fire – Group Number 1, SMOGRA 20.4 (<100)
- AS1530.4 FRL – refer below
- AS1530.3 Fire hazard properties – ignitability index 0, spread of flame index, 0 heat evolved index 0, and smoke developed index 6
- AS3837 Cone calorimeter – Group Number 1, ASEA 226 (<250)
FRL (Fire Resistance Level) Performance (to AS1530.4)
|AFS Rediwall®||Max. FRL|
Recognising the importance of resistance to water penetration, testing has been undertaken whereby Rediwall® panels were interlocked, core-filled with concrete and exposed to 6m hydrostatic head of pressure for a period of 100 hours as per ASTM E514/E514M and AS/NZS 4347.1 testing and passed for no water penetration.
Tested and certified by CSIRO:
- ASTM E514/E514M-14a Water penetration leakage through masonry – Pass

Build easily with afs rediwall® permanent PVC construction formwork
Strong, fast and ready
For architects, engineers, builders or developers, it is important to build client trust in today’s fast-moving construction industry by keeping costs down and meeting deadlines.
Prefabricated construction has helped erect buildings faster than ever, but even this solution comes with its handling costs. These can easily blow out a project’s budget with the need to use a tower crane just to lift the panels into place. However, with afs rediwall® you can save on handling costs, with lightweight panels that are easily lifted into place by hand and components that either snap-in or slide together and lock into position.
Step 01 : Floor track
Installation of afs rediwall® begins with the installation of the floor track or floor angle.
Step 02 : Panel installation
Installation of components usually starts at a corner. A corner panel is installed with a few standard panels (and joiners if required) which are erected at each side of the corner. The corner is then braced and checked to ensure that it is plumb prior to proceeding. These PVC construction formwork modules double as the form for concrete core-filling and provide support/locate the reinforcement bar to achieve the correct cover.
Step 03 : Wall Construction
Installation proceeds along the wall to the next corner by vertically sliding (256mm, 275mm and 300mm panels) or horizontally snapping (110mm, 156mm and 200mm panels) the adjacent components together. The components are placed tight into the floor track or against the floor angle on the foundation or slab and are braced.
Step 04 : Reinforcement Bar Installation
Slide the horizontal reinforcement bars through the rediwall® profile in accordance with the project engineer’s design. Vertical reinforcement bar should then be placed vertically into the rediwall® profile, weaving between alternate horizontal bars. AFS Vertical Bar Locators (VBLs) and alignment bars may also be installed at this time to assist with the location and installation of vertical reinforcement bars. See the afs rediwall® Installation Guide for further details.
Step 05 : Bracing
Step 06: Concrete core fill
After the installation process is complete and bracing is secured, the panels are core filled with concrete, using a boom pump. The concrete mix must be as per AFS’ recommended Rediwall® Mix Design Specification.
Once the concrete has cured, the walls are now ready to perform as a load bearing structure for the next floor slab or roof assembly.
Step 07: An already-finished substrate
