Monford Group utilises PERI DUO for various tasks within the scope of largescale infrastructure projects. In the West of Australia, the contractor builds shaft walls, sewers and bottom slabs using the lightweight formwork.
A great advantage of the system for these applications is the low weight, making both crane and scaffolding unnecessary. Due to the simple assembly logic of the system, even less experienced users were quickly able to carry out forming operations with DUO. Therefore, the trained formwork craftsmen of Monford Group can focus on those areas where more complex forms have to be carpentered by hand. This results in further cost savings for the construction project.
“PERI DUO is an environmentally friendly, lightweight formwork system by means of which we were able to increase our productivity. It offers numerous advantages: the low weight reduces crane costs and the users’ risk of injury. The easy assembly results in enhanced efficiency and ensures a better construction site result.”
DUO standard panels are used where possible; the inclined supplements are carpentered from wood by formwork craftsmen.
DUO Brackets and guardrail posts together with a supplementary timber construction are used to build safe working platforms and accesses.
DUO is particularly suitable for small-sized applications in civil engineering that are only subject to low requirements on the surfaces.
