Most frequently asked questions about our products
13 December 2022
Your questions drive our innovation process. Whether they are asked through our contact page, in the consulting phase, or during construction, your questions influence our innovation and product design. These are the ones we get asked the most.
Are Geopanel fixing handles necessary?
Yes. Geopanel nylon handles are specifically designed for Geoplast formwork. The panels can therefore only be fixed with Geoplast handles and each one is necessary for withstanding the load of concrete.
Can I use Geopanel for slabs?
Yes. Geopanel can be used for any structural element: walls, columns, staircases, and even slabs when integrated with our Geosky system.
How much time does it take to install Geotub formwork?
Geotub setup takes 10 to 15 minutes for the first column of 3 m in height. The formwork tubes can then be split into halves to build the subsequent columns even faster.
Which dismantling agent should I use?
None. Geoplast formwork is made of smooth ABS plastic that does not stick to concrete – just clean the panels with water and reuse. Use, rinse, repeat.
Why use Drening if I can drain the water into the sewer?
Extreme weather events are increasing each year due to the climate crisis. The capacity of the existing sewer is getting very limited, so not using Drening will only increase the risk of flooding and future maintenance costs.
How many times can I reuse Skydome?
Skydome is made of extremely resistant ABS plastic that can be reused more than 100 times with proper care and maintenance.
Can New Elevetor be used under steps or sloped surfaces?
Yes, absolutely. New Elevetor’s vertical tubes are designed to be cut to any size, which enables it to create flat, stepped, or sloped surfaces of up to 3 m in height.
How much concrete can be saved with New Nautilus?
New Nautilus saves between 15 and 20 % of concrete in slabs, but since this reduces structural loads, the savings further extend to the entire building: beams, columns, walls, and foundations.
Can sunlight melt Salvaverde?
No. All Geoplast paving grids, Salvaverde included, are designed to resist UV rays. They are also covered with soil and grass so they are completely protected from sunlight.
Geoflor can be used directly over the grass turf?
Yes, that’s what it was designed for. Geoflor has large cells that do not damage the turf and can create green driveways without the preparation of the subsoil. Just lock the modules together and you are done.
