Distance tubes

Distance tubes are used to guarantee concrete wall thickness using reusable tie bars.

The engineered solution for formwork shutter ties:

  • High compressive strength
  • Large contact area, therefore reduced pressure on the formwork
  • Conform to DIN EN 1992-1-1:2011-01 (Eurocode 2) and DIN 18216 (formwork ties for concrete formwork)
  • Can be manufactured as an impermeable shutter tie system
  • Fire resistance rating F30 - F180 and suitable for fire walls (F90) to DIN 4102

For drinking water reservoirs FRANK offers the “TW“ version of the distance tube, with approval for drinking water applications and can be used without any restrictions.


Exposed concrete sealing cones

During formwork erection and concreting of walls using reusable tie bars conical recesses in the concrete are formed. FRANK exposed fibre-reinforced concrete sealing cones do not only allow for sealing these recesses, but they are at the same time a modern architectural design feature. 

  • Individual design possibilities for concrete surfaces
  • Quick and reliable sealing of recess holes
  • Smooth surface of low porosity
  • Exposed concrete of the highest quality
  • Part of an impermeable sealing system for shutter tie holes

Fibre-reinforced concrete sealing stoppers

In addition to the glued sealing stopper, Max Frank also offers the following for the sealing
of tie-bar hole:

  • FB-Aktivstop with integrated expanding seal.
  • FB-Kombistop with integrated rubber seal,
  • FB-Easystop with integrated sealing rings and

The various sealing stoppers cover the different requirements for the sealing of distance
tubes with regard to building physics and conditions of use. The simple sealing can be carried out in all weathers, enabling work to continue immediately.
