In the competitive and often cost-driven world of construction, it is rare that genuine project efficiencies can be created with the specification of just one building material. Rise Products has recently launch Rise Wall Super Finish, described as a “game changer in permanent formwork”.
The only fibre cement solution available in a standardised format, addressing the cost, time and inflexibility associated with using traditional fibre cement systems. Rise Products chief executive Tim Pope said the business is taking twentieth century technology into the twenty-first century with the world’s first lay-flat permanent formwork system.
“Permanent formwork is an extremely popular building material today, but we could see there were improvements to be made,” Pope said.
“Of course, our lay-flat design means you can have serious volumes delivered to site without the bulk of similar products.”
The panel is a viable alternative to PVC formwork, creating straighter walls, improving fire compliance and offering a higher-quality solution for applied finishes.
The standardised format is generating interest from builders and developers who are frustrated with the limitations of prefabricated fibre cement formwork that adds weeks to site delivery.
“With Rise Wall Super Finish, you have to look beyond the cost of the material, which is already compelling.
“Super Finish allows builders to adapt to changing requirements to keep projects moving.
“Factoring in transport, waste removal, site handling and installation efficiencies, Rise Wall is delivering up to 30 per cent of savings on the permanent formwork component of projects.”
