Plastic Formwork System
Instead of using bricks that are produced on a distant brick plant and
transported to the construction site, the moladi walls are produced in a
plastic lightweight reusable formwork technology insitu in a day. This
process speeds up the building of the wall, eliminating waste and rework.
To construct a moladi wall no skilled artisan or bricklayers are required.
This again reduces cost due to eliminating the variance of production
capacity of individual capability of bricklayers.
All the water and electrical piping are fixed onto the formwork prior to
casting the mortar (Concrete without stone). This eliminates delays and
having to chase the wall for the water and electric piping.
Moladi Plastic Formwork Construction System
The moladi wall contains steel reinforcing bars to prevent cracking and
also to withstand wind loads (hurricanes) and earthquakes. Therefore the
moladi structure is superior to conventional brick and mortar masonry
The window block-outs are positioned between the two layers of formwork
technology to create the opening for a window to be inserted. This allows
for any type of window frame to be accommodated in a moladi wall. The
doorframes are also positioned between the moladi formwork prior to
Roof truss block-outs are positioned according to the roof truss
configuration and eliminate having to beam fill after the roof has been
erected. Roof ties are cast into the wall next to the block-outs and this
secures to roof to the structure.
Due to the material properties of the moladi plastic formwork, no shutter
release oil is required to prevent the mortar from adhering to the
formwork nor does the wall have to be plastered as the off-shutter finish
of the wall is smooth, eliminating the need of a plasterer and waste.
The plastic formwork is erected on a concrete raft foundation according to
the specific design required and the manual supplied by moladi. This
process simplifies the erection process and no skills are required to do
this task. Local labour is hired to complete this task in a day. The mould is
manually cast or pumped in two to three hours. The following day the
formwork is removed and re-erected on the next foundation cast a week
before to allow for sufficient curing.
