Domino-kortteli Residential Complex, Finland

Combined with a heating element, MAXIMO also offers the right solution for concreting at low temperatures. The heat supply provides an uninterrupted hydration process – as shown here in winter in Finland.
Practical details such as suitable recesses for the BFD connections ensured efficient use of the MAXIMO MXH Heated Formwork.
Suitable recesses for connecting the Bracket System MXK are also provided in the MAXIMO MXH Heated Formwork. The MXK Bracket System served as a safe working and concreting platform.
Early striking with the drophead system reduced on-site material requirements of the SKYDECK Slab Formwork. The simple, systematic assembly sequence and the low number of slab props allowed fast forming operations and also saved valuable time.
MULTIPROP Aluminium Slab Props  were used as support for the balconies – depending on the height and load, were also connected to form shoring towers.

Not only in winter is it important to choose the right formwork solution because the Finnish climate can lead to challenges all the year round. The new PERI solution allows summer and winter use with only one formwork system. The MAXIMO elements are simply supplemented with heating elements and the heat supply ensures an uninterrupted hydration process – the right solution for concreting at low temperatures. For us, it is important to work with high-quality systems every day. Using MAXIMO MXH was well worth it and the system has more than justified its reputation.
