Centurion Sideforms / Shuttering
Spartan Capping Removal Tool
The Capping Removal tool is a simple multi-function tool that not only assists in quick and easy removal of capping form the sideform but also is a scraper. It can be used to clean concrete spillage from the capping and sideform, clean the ball lock and channel rails at the rear of the sideform and also assist in stripping the sideform away from the cast concrete member.
One simple tool with 4 functions.
Centurion Square End Seal
Centurion Splayed End Seal
The Centurion Stacking Clip allows for Centurion Sideforms to be simply and easily snapped onto one another to form much higher shutters. This once again uses the same sideforms to form much larger edgeforms and higher shutters minimising the amount of formwork stock required to be carried.
With the Centurion Stacking Clip you can simply join any two sideforms on top of one another to get a myriad of combinations in shutter heights on top of which you still get an additional 50 mm (2 inches ) additional height adjustment in the snap on capping profiles.
Some examples follow:-
Centurion Permanent Joiner Sleeves
In the process of forming precast panels and structures it is almost unavoidable to have to cut sideform sections and lengths to make up specific lengths of edgeform on a mould or internal opening and penetrations.
This results in damage to sideforms and hence costly waste. The Centurion Sideform is designed to be very easily and cost-effectively permanently joined so that smaller pieces can be joined to make up longer lengths again without effecting the operational capabilities or quality of finish of the sideform. This drastically reduces long-term costs and operational material waste and makes the SRB Sideforms / Edgeforms one of the most cost effective alternatives available.
The Centurion Sideform has internal rib guides that suit standard stainless steel square hollow section. The stainless steel sleeves are inserted into the ribbed guides in one end of the Centurion Sideform, leaving a section (around 100 mm / 4 inches or more) protruding from the end. The sleeves are then either pop riveted or screwed into position in the specific purpose grooves at the rear of the sideform (designed to accommodate the screw or pop rivet head).
The sideform length to be joined is then aligned with the protruding stainless steel sleeves and the two sections of sideform pushed together to fully abut. The internal sideform ribs ensure that the two lengths of sideform perfectly align in both planes. Once abutted, pop rivets or screws are once again used to secure the fitted / joined piece.
Centurion Production Connector Plates
During the production process it is necessary to temporarily join two lengths of sideform / edgeform to produce the required length of the panel or structure being cast. This however is not a permanent join particularly when excessively long sideform lengths are required and permanently joining the sideforms would make them too heavy and impractical to handle.
SRB utilises Steel Connector Plates in purpose built channels at the rear of the sideforms to simply, quickly and very cost effectively join lengths of sideform for the duration of the manufacture process.
The connector plates are generally left / stored in one end of a standard length sideform simply by turning the knob on the connector plate to lock it in the sideform channel.
The two sideform lengths being joined are abutted end to end and the connector plate is simply released and pushed into the channel of the sideforms being joined so that the plate is engaged in both sideforms. The knobs are then easily hand tightened securing the two sideforms to one another for the length of the production process.
Once the concrete is sufficiently cured for stripping the connector plate is loosened and pushed fully into one sideform and again locked to remain in that sideform. This disconnects the two joined sideforms enabling them to be separately stripped away from the cast member.
The Centurion Sideform is designed for simple clicker connection to magnet clamps via an Adaptor Plate that is affixed to the magnet clamp.
The clicker locks into the rear of the Centurion Sideform simply by rotating the clicker in a clockwise direction inside the rail at the rear of the sideform.
The clicker has a protruding thread that runs through the slotted hole in the side of the Adaptor Plate and is attached to the adaptor plate via a plastic knob.
The magnet clamp (with handles in disengaged position) is placed along the rear of the sideform and the clicker plate turned clockwise, via the thread, locating it in the rear clicker channel in the rear of the sideform.
When the sideform is adjusted to its correct location the magnet is first engaged to the casting table. Slight pressure is then exerted onto the top of the sideform to seal against the casting table and adaptor knob tightened firmly securing the clicker to the Adaptor Plate.
Titan Slotted Magnet Adaptor / Connector Plate
The slotted hole in the side of the adaptor plate allows movement of the clicker plate in the vertical plane to accommodate the varying clicker positions on the different sideform sections.
Centurion Bolt On Clicker
This type of clicker plate has a threaded bar protruding from the rear and operates on the principle of connecting the clicker to either the Slotted Magnet Adaptor, Titan Screw Fix Bracket or Panelware Site Cast Bracket via the tightening of a threaded knob.
The Spartan and Centurion Sideform Capping are made from a durable PVC Polymer and come in lengths of 5.8 m (19 ft).
The capping snaps onto the sideform / edgeform to form the chamfer profile and create the sideform overall height.
The range of chamfer profiles will increase into the future. Custom profiles and heights can be made to order relatively cost-efficiently. It is substantially more cost-effective to extrude a PVC profile to a specific height and chamfer edge profile to snap on to existing aluminium extrusion blanks than to manufacture and stock an entire new range of edgeforms.
The current profiles include:
12 mm x 12 mm Chamfer Edge in 00 (gives standard sideform height to aluminium Extrusions), + 5 mm, + 10 mm, + 15 mm, + 20 mm & + 25 mm height increments.
Square Edge Profile (no chamfer) in 00, + 5 mm, + 10 mm, + 15 mm, + 20 mm & + 25 mm height increments.
The Centurion Sideform is made from high structural grade aluminium extrusion with high dimensional tolerance and accuracy.
The sideforms come in standard lengths of 5.8 m (19 ft) and heights of 125 mm (5 inch), 150 mm ( 6 inch), 175 mm (7 inch), 200 mm (8 inch).
The extrusions are epoxy powder coated with colour coding for sideform height.
