Formwork and formwork system for concrete
SKYDOME is a system of modular formwork in plastic used to build two-way ribbed slabs in residential and commercial buildings.
The system was designed to decrease the weight of traditional full-concrete slabs. The dome-shaped forms create a matrix of voids surrounded by orthogonal ribbing, producing a two-way configuration very suitable for large-spanning slabs.
SKYDOME hollowed slab reduces the mass of the structure producing considerable advantages in seismic performance
SKYDOME system makes it possible to design slabs spanning up to 13 m without drop beams or other protruding elements
The composing elements are very light and can be easily installed and handled
The waffle slab is pleasing to the eye and can be left exposed, creating aesthetically enjoyable environments
ABS plastics does not
stick to concrete, thus dismantling is extremely easy making the formwork very quickly available for the next cycle
The shape of the domes reduces sound waves, improving the acoustics of the structure
