TRIO is the universal formwork system for all applications where the main focus is on reducing the shuttering times with conventional DW tie technology. With the BFD coupler for virtually all connections as well as many other practical system solutions, TRIO has successfully proven itself in countless projects around the world. TRIO can be used together with the more advanced MAXIMO panel formwork. A large range of accessories, such as the BFD Coupler or MXK Bracket System, can be used in both systems.
Easy and simple connections with the BFD Alignment Coupler as the only component for all panel connections
Fast working operations with only a minimum of panel widths as well as panels that can be used both horizontally and vertically
Large-area shuttering with standard panels up to 3.30 m x 2.40 m – providing a high level of surface evenness and only 2 tie positions
Flexibly used panel formwork for fast working operations, compatible with MAXIMO panel formwork
Panel heights up to 3.30 m, panel widths up to 2.40 m (standard system)
Maximum permissible fresh concrete pressure: 80 kN/m²
Can be used with DW 15 and DW 20 tie systems
Flush, aligned and tight connections with the BFD Alignment Coupler – including filler timber compensations up to 10 cm
Simple cleaning operations due to the powder-coated frame
Lightweight formwork for crane-independent working; easily distinguishable by its yellow powder coating
TRIO panels with a free choice of formlining for special concrete surface requirements – supplied already pre-assembled
Conically-shaped ties installed from one side on the ground
Element with securely mounted working platforms and push-pull props
Formlining screwed on at the rear
TRIO shaft element
With the TRIO shaft element, complete shaft internal formwork can be moved quickly; the all-round striking clearance is 30 mm.
MXK Bracket System
The MXK Bracket System serves as a working platform on MAXIMO and TRIO. The modular design and lightweight, manually-assembled system components ensure fast installation and a high level of costeffectiveness. In contrast to conventional solutions, the modular system provides pre-assembled individual components, e.g. the MXK Scaffold Deck or PROKIT PMB Side Mesh Barrier.

Having taken all possibilities into consideration, we chose the TRIO and VARIO wall formwork systems for realising the inclined walls of the Lascaux project. The handling of the TRIO elements is simple and practical at the same time, and the inclined surfaces could be joined together without any problems whatsoever – in spite of the changes in inclination between the individual wall sections. After carrying out some adjustments, the VARIO formwork proved to be a very sensible choice for forming the adjacent walls with counter-positioned inclinations.
