Distance tubes are used to guarantee concrete wall thickness using reusable tie bars.
The engineered solution for formwork shutter ties:
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.
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.
FRANK offers a new sealing stopper FB-Kombistop made of fibre-reinforced concrete and silicone rubber for sealing of shutter ties. This material combination allows for watertight sealing of distance tubes by simply driving in the sealing stopper using a rubber mallet.
Distance tubes can be sealed quickly and simply at any time without interruption to work on the construction site. As the stopper is immediately effective, the next concrete pour can commence without delay and the stopper can be exposed to hydraulic pressure.
