VT 20K Formwork Girder


The cost-effective PERI VT 20K solid web girder can be used universally. The wooden formwork girder with a 20 cm overall height is optimized for use in slab formwork operations. Especially for thin slabs with short spans, the solid web girder provides the most appropriate solution. The VT 20K is extremely economical to use also for special solutions – ranging from simple beams through to bridge or tunnel formwork projects. The girder is available in 11 lengths from 1.45 m to 5.90 m and, as a rule, has robust steel caps fi tted at the end of the chords. These steel caps along with the concave web end provide the girder with reliable protection against damage. Alternatively, the girder can also be supplied without caps.
