More Info
modular, medium panel formwork system
     Minima is a robust, versatile modular wall formwork panel for concrete pressures up to 60kN/m2. The lightweight panels
     weigh only 30 kg/m2, allowing most panels to be easily set by hand. And with an extensive range of accessories, Minima has
     the versatility to adapt to most building structures, quickly and easily.

     Minima can be used within any sector on a variety of
     applications, including:





          Abutments and Piers

          Service Cores




          Pile Caps

features and benefits
   Many of Minima’s lightweight panels - only 30kg/m2 -
   can be easily set by hand, minimising the need for
   cranage,   reducing       costs   and      skilled      labour

   Clamps are easily tightened, prolonging their
   working life and reducing labour requirements.

   Panels can be clamped together using the Minima
   clamps and up to 25m2 lifted by crane if required,
   increasing the productivity of the system.

   Minima is available in many panel sizes, allowing
   virtually any configuration to be erected.

   Tie positions support 1.21m2 of formwork when using
   2.7 x 0.9m panel assemblies, reducing the number of
   ties required, lowering costs and construction times.

   Minima inner corners have 2 degree stripping
   clearance, allowing panels to be easily removed once
   curing has taken place.

a versatile, modular formwork system
 Designed from on-site experience and a full understanding of contractors’ needs, RMD’s Rapid Ply is a versatile system of
 modular formwork panels providing a cost-effective solution for concrete walls and slabs. Rapid Ply is suitable for most
 applications, including: foundations, straight and circular walls and columns.
 Rapid Ply is an extremely cost effective system because it can be used without the use of a crane. The heaviest panel of 1.44m
 weighs only 38.5kg, consequently Rapid Ply can be used flexibly to form in-situ concrete structures, even on the most difficult
 project sites.

curved walls the easy way
 Reflex is the latest in RMD Australia’s range of wall formwork products – it’s our solution for the cost effective
 forming of reinforced concrete curved walls. Its galvanised steel frame, high grade form ply face and innovative
 design features allow for the setting of all curves efficiently and accurately, producing high quality concrete

 The strong and robust design of Reflex withstands concrete pressures up to 60 kN/m2 and can easily be adjusted
 for re-use site after site, without dismantling, for all curves above 2500mm radius.

 Traditional methods of curved wall construction are labour intensive because of all the time needed to constantly
 assemble, disassemble and modify the system being used. Reflex is a pre-assembled, adjustable panel that is easily
 and quickly adjusted for the setting of all curves.
