Bridge and elevated road improvements with Geotub formwork

Kerisper bridge Geotub

Structural deterioration, speed of development, repair which reduces traffic congestion, and limited construction space are the most demanding challenges that road bridges and elevated roads development and maintenance must overcome. Our Geotub formwork has been efficient in overcoming these challenges by offering following benefits:

  • Fast and easy formwork installment, avoiding large machinery in limited construction space,
  • Less interrupted traffic flow during construction works,
  • Increased safety due to formwork light weight,
  • Creation of perfectly smooth surface for circle columns of large diameters (60 / 80 cm).

Our Geotub formwork road projects

About Geotub

Geotub formwork
Geotub is the formwork used to build round and oval columns with diameters from 20 to 100 cm. It provides various solutions: seismic hazard adjustment of columns, renovation of degraded columns, precast columns creation, and building foundations for electricity pylons. Geotub is:

  • Light formwork, easily mountable and removable,
  • Suitable to build columns of up to 6 m height,
  • Permits work on heights with safety higher than with other formwork systems,
  • Creates smooth surfaces of pillars,
  • Highly resistant (80 KN/m2),
  • Recyclable.
