Birchply H-20 Formwork beams for Concrete Shuttering work

Eximcorp H 20 Prefabricated Formwork Beams are high performance formwork beams designed especially for applications as a load bearing element of Vertical shuttering applications like Wall , Column and Horizontal shuttering applications like Slabs, Beams , Domes etc.,

Both the ends of these high performance beams are secured with protective end caps.

WBO exterior Birch Plywood used in the fabrication of these beams as web is the highest value plywood which makes these beam resilient for high performance in critical conditions.

Produced in Russian Federation using Russian formwork technologies, these beams are reliable, durable and cost effective option in the market today.

Key Features

A reliable spike connection is glued in several layers, thereby eliminating splitting of the bar;

The flange is made of oriented wood, premium grade, foreign producers, due to this, the probability of chips and cracks is reduced when driving nails, self-tapping screws;

To ensure durability, plastic tips are attached to the beams, which increase the strength of the ends of the beams and reduce the probability of their splitting; 

High-quality plywood, impregnated with a special resin, makes it reliable and stable in use; 

The use of a beam with its exceptionally large length bearing capacity significantly reduces the number of floor slabs, which reduces the number of parts for the assembly and dismantling of the formwork, resulting in reduced working time and higher profitability; 

The beam has a high load-bearing capacity and can be mounted in spans of long lengths without such defects as bending, shrinkage and cracks; 
Beam, section 40 x 80 mm gives stability and enhances the possibility of driving nails;

Effect of humidity & moisture

  • Wood in flange and Plywood in web is a living material and is subject to moisture movement according to surrounding conditions, which affects the dimensional stability of the beam. It is important to condition the panels to reach a moisture content near to the equilibrium of the site environment, where these are intended to be used.
  • Like any other wood-based products, H Beam is also hygroscopic and its dimensions change in response to a change in humidity. A change of 1% in moisture content typically increases or decreases the length, width and thickness by 1% in dimensions and thickness. It is therefore desired that these are stored in clean and dry conditions and are sealed with a suitable acrylic paint from time to time to prevent and/or control ingress of moisture and humidity and consequent swell in thickness and expansion in dimensions.

Storage & handling

The recommended stocking conditions are 20°C and a RH of air of about 60%


Following the safe practices in use, handling and storage, 40 re-uses of these beam is possible in the ordinary course.
