GEOPANEL CL ELEMENT
Bulkhead panel used to form wall ends: it is fastened to the Geopanel formwork using the standard fastening handles.

Any unused hole is stopped with the standard Cap 25 Geopanel plugs.
GEOPANEL – Installation
GEOPANEL formwork system is an easy and intuitive system of modular formwork in plastic used to build walls, foundations and columns in concrete.
GEOPANEL is a patented system with a wide range of panels of different size which can be assembled with fast-lock nylon handles.
Thanks to the multiple panel combinations, it is possible to erect structures of any size and shape.
GEOPANEL is easy to assemble, as it uses fast-lock nylon handles that firmly join the forms with a simple 90 degree turn. The outer ribbing is designed for simple propping and plumbing. The holes in the panels are used for the required tie-rods and spacers. The corner are reinforced with steel alignment bars; more steel alignment bars are used at the base of the formwork in case of height of 3 mt.
1Set the Geopanel 120×60 cm elements side by side and join them with the standard high-strength nylon fastening handles.Turning the handles by 90° is sufficient to achieve full connection.
2Insert the spacer sleeves between the two sides of the formwork, then insert the tie-rods and finally fasten both ends with washers.The unused holes are closed with the Cap 25 plugs.
3For walls of height greater than 2.40 m use the steel alignment bars at the base of the formwork.
4The outer ribbing is designed for simple propping and plumbing.
GEOPANEL CORNER ASSEMBLYThe forming of corners is made easy by the Geopanel inner- and outer-corner panels. Combined with the various sizes available of small panels, the system allows the forming of a full range of wall sizes. For assembly instructions please consult our HANDBOOK.
FITTING THE CORNER ALIGNMENT BARSThe outer corners are reinforced with special steel alignment bars, which are composed by two elements (male/female) and an anchor-nut. For assembly instructions please consult our HANDBOOK.
