The cost-effective solid web girder

VT 20K Girder

The 20 K girder with the optimum protection at the girder ends is ideally suited for daily construction site use.

With an overall height of 20cm, the VT20 K is optimised for use in slab formwork operations, especially for thin slabs with short spans.

The solid web girder is extremely economical to use also for special solutions – ranging from simple beams through to bridge or tunnel formwork projects. The girder is available in 11 lengths from 1.45 m to 5.90m with robust steel caps fitted at the end of the chords. These steel caps along with the concave strut end provide the girder with reliable protection against damage.

  • Steel caps on the ends of the chords provide reliable protection against damage. Securing of the steel cap has been intentionally done in the unstressed area of the web.
    High Quality & Robust

    The chords are made of softwood and highly compressed web board and a high proportion of synthetic resin. Steel caps on the chord ends and concave web ends for robustness. 

  • The VT 20K as secondary and main beam in residential construction.
    Universal & Low Swelling

    The 4 x 8 cm thick chords provide sufficient width for nailing plywood joints. Low swelling behaviour due to the high proportion of glue, no dry cracks and torsion because of the web plate.
