VARIOKIT VCC Composite Formwork Carriage

Formwork carriage used on the steel substructure for the construction of carriageway slabs

The VARIOKIT steel composite carriage is used for the fabrication of steel composite bridges with closed or open steel profile cross-sections. This is characterised by its high rigidity both in longitudinal and cross direction of the carriage.

The steel composite carriage is moved via heavy-duty castors, which are fixed to seats on the steel structure. Since the heavy-duty castors have a steerable bearing, even small radii can be manoeuvered without any problem. The basis for the formwork carriage is a longitudinal truss, consisting of main beams of the HD 200 system. The length can be adjusted modularly.

  • The influence width of the cross formwork units can be chosen freely with the VARIOKIT system.
    Cost-effective solution

    The influence width of the cross formwork units can be chosen freely with the VARIOKIT system. This means that the structural load on the material can be utilized optimally and this leads to very cost-effective solutions.

  • This lock bridge is being constructed with 2 VARIOKIT Composite Formwork Carriages in 13 casting segments using the back-step construction method.
    Adjustment to individual building geometry

    The cross formwork units are assembled completely from VARIOKIT material, and so an ideal adjustment to the building geometries is possible.

  • Fast assembly is possible with the standardised bolt connection of the VARIOKIT engineering construction kit.
