How to choose a shuttering system for precast production?
Are you new to precast and wondering how to prepare high-quality precast panels and slabs with molds? Or maybe you just want to find a new, more efficient way of shuttering for sandwich panels, solid slabs, beams, columns, and other precast walls?

Either way, this Shuttering Guide provides you knowledge about the shuttering in general, difference between shuttering materials, best shuttering practices and gives a comprehensive overview of the HSMAG MAGNETIC Shuttering System.

What to consider when choosing shuttering magnets?
Size of the magnet matters especially when optimal utilization of casting surface is a priority.
Weight of the shuttering magnets is an essential issue in manual handling. Even a difference of one or two kilos matters
Weight-holding force ratio – the lighter magnet with more holding power is the best option. Holding force or retaining force is usually informed in kilos or N or kN. The range can vary from 450 kg up to 2100 kg, or from 4,5 kN to 21 kN
Ease of handling is important for daily ergonomics. Check before purchasing how easy the magnets can be placed and released and what tools are offered for that.
Pay attention to safety: HSMAG push button magnets are designed to enhance safety and, in particular, to prevent finger injuries.
Hot temperature resistance. Normal temperature thread for magnets is 60-70 C*. If you apply high temperature in curing chambers or have production in hot climate, you need magnets resistant to minimum 80 C*

What is the difference between formwork and shuttering?

Formwork is an umbrella term that describes a process of making molds for reinforced concrete elements by using different materials. Formwork refers to both precast and cast-in-situ concrete pouring.



Shuttering is a type of formwork

Shuttering is a type of formwork. In precast concrete production, shuttering means manual, crane-assisted or fully automated assembly of molds for precast elements using different materials and parts. The shuttering often refers to the method of making the mold from water-resistant plywood. Advanced shuttering systems, such as , make this process easier and faster with magnets and aluminum profiles.

Different materials for precast concrete molds
Precast concrete is a construction product produced by casting concrete in a reusable mold or “form” or bed which is then cured in a controlled environment, transported to the construction site, and lifted into place. The precast concrete molds can be made of aluminum, timber, steel, plastic, fiber concrete, fiberglass or even rubber.
