Indispensable for any construction site.
GBM’s formwork panels consist of three coated layers of wood.
GBM formwork 3ply panels are built with three layers of wood obtained from fir and spruce trees grown in sustainable forests.
Our panels are made with a 3-ply structure 9+9+9 mm, without frame.
This means that the mechanical properties of our panel are the same and unchanged even if you cut the panel.
The outer plies that are in touch with the concrete are thicker (9mm vs 6mm) and will allow the panel to last longer.
Lamellas of GBM panels are prepared from a glulam monolitic beam having a smaller width which improves the resistance of the panel and automatically reduces the maximum dimension of accepted knots.
Our panels have a melamin finish, just like other panels, but having a greater quality of raw material we can provide it with natural color finish. Of course we can also provide with the
classic yellow finish.
The reason why yellow is used is to cover possible aestethical defects of the wood, because yellow tends to uniform the view.
We are sure enough of our quality that we offer it with natural finish. This finish is also optimal for at sight concrete.
We are introducing a polyuretane protection on the longitudinal edges as an optional. This option will allow a perfect smooth contact of the panels edges and it will improve the concrete finish.
We can customize our panels with the following options:
Below are the features of GBM shuttering panels
|Thickness mm||27||27, optional||21, optional|
|Width mm||500||200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450||500|
|Length mm||1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000||3000||1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, (3000)|
The diagram shows how the panel reacts upon loading, considering the interval spaces between one support element and the other.
Q stands for uniform load (in kN/ m2 unit).
I stands for interval space between the support elements.
f is the folding calculated in mm.

As a tool, the GBM formwork panels technical data sheet is useful for worksite operators. The technical data sheet informs the operator about the main features of the panels.
