Triplex Heavy-duty braces break the 20 m (65 ft) barrier

A new hall is being built for Bavaria’s Firefighting School to meet modern demands in firefighter training – including a 70 x 40 x 30 m (230 x 130 x 98 ft) training hall, a fire simulation facility and a new vehicle hall.
Before the slabs and side walls are completed, the 21 m high walls need to be braced immediately after the pour and safeguarded against high wind loads. This is where the heavy- duty braces Triplex come in. 

Triplex is a statically effective brace for formwork higher than 6 m. It does the same on finished wall slabs. Its lengths are flexibly combined to the height required, in this case to beyond 20 m (65 ft).

    MEVA STB 450 offers flexible solution for narrow, inclined rail section: Near the municipality of Gretzenbach, the four-track route branches into two separate lines. Here, the two southern tracks gradually descend and pass below the cantonal road before entering the new Eppenberg Tunnel.

    MEVA's StarTec and Radius wall formwork played a starring role in the construction of a 20 m tall, plant-shaped viewing tower, built by the shore of Lake Velence, south-west of Budapest.
