Alsina participates in the construction of an underpass in the Philippines
The project: Transportation Infrastructure in Manila
Alsina’s Formwork delegation in the Philippines has begun in 2018 its collaboration in the construction of a highway underpass in Manila (Philippines).
This civil works project, which is scheduled to be completed this year 2018, involves the construction of a highway underpass that is 10 meters wide by 20 meters long and has a free height of 6.5 meters, which will substantially improve the circulation in the metropolitan area of Manila city.
Alsina: practical and effective solutions for civil works
For the implementation of this project, Alsina has supplied 350 m2 of its Alisply and Alisply circular walls formwork systems, as well as 1.300 m3 of AR-80 shoring system and 200 m2 of its Multiform system.
Alsina’s Alisply range includes several recoverable formwork systems for the construction of walls and columns. This is a resistant, versatile and compatible system with all other accessories from Alisply family systems, a fact that makes so much more profitable the formwork equipment on site.
The formwork surface of different types of Alisply is made of plywood, which offers many advantages over metal surfaces, such as lower weight, higher concrete quality, increased performance and greater resistance to inclement weather.
On the other hand, Alsina’s AR-80 shoring system is a very versatile and easy to assemble reliable support system for slab formwork implementation, consisting of vertical support elements and a system of multidirectional connections that allows providing support for both independent towers and fixed scaffolding, depending on application requirements, and annex auxiliary elements such as access stairs or safety platforms to it. This is a really strong multidirectional system, with a bearing capacity of 17.984 lbf per support, which allows shoring any structural element in civil engineering projects.
Finally, Alsina’s Multiform system, consisting of double UPN metal beams, wooden beams, strips and turnbuckles is one of Alsina’s most versatile systems, allowing “ad hoc” design of the necessary recoverable formwork to adapt to any geometry whether they are straight, curved or one sided walls, lintels or bridge boards.
