Maini Table

Table formwork is a large, pre-assembled formwork and falsework unit, often forming a complete bay of suspended floor slab. It offers mobility and quick installation for construction projects with regular plan layouts or long repetitive structures, so it is highly suitable for flat slab and beam and slab layouts. It is routinely used for: residential flats; hotels; hostels; offices; and commercial buildings.


Table Formwork can easily be adapted to fit any layout simply by telescoping the H20 beams.
The materials planning work is done by slide-rule, which appreciably reduces the costs of planning and operations scheduling.

  • No structural design work is needed; this shows you the maximum spacings for all slabs up to 30 cm thick
  • You can tell at a glance whether the form has been set up correctly

Further advantages:
Infill zones are managed within the system, making it easy to accommodate walls and columns.
For shoring heights of up to 5.50 m
Any type or form-facing can be used
No need to measure up


A small number of system components wherein, all are perfectly coordinated

– Plywood sheet.
– MAINI beams H20 3.90m.
Pre-defined positioning points, as reference marks for setting up and checking the formwork.
Lowering head H20.
Integrated quick-lowering function for minimising damage when striking
Stabilises the primary beams so that these cannot tip over on the sides
– Supporting head H20.
Easy to mount to the floor
For securing intermediate props to the H20 beam.
– MAINI props
– High load-bearing capacity.
Numbered peg holes, for easier height adjustment
Special thread geometry, for easier release even under high load
Elbowed fastening clamps, for easier operating and reducing injuries
– Removable folding tripod.
For holding floor props upright
Swing-out legs allow flexible placement in constricted situations, such as along edges and in corners


Example with the Maini Table Lifter and Trolley

Position the shifting trolley under the middle of the table
– Lower the table
– Wheel the table of the pick-up location.
Set the table down
Wheel out the shifting trolley (the next table can now be made ready for shifting)
Pick up the table, Lifter
Minimum length of chains: 5 m
Lift the table out and up to the next storey


Fast construction for large floor layouts
Fully assembled units can be manoeuvred quickly into place
Using appropriate quality control, high-quality surface finishes can be achieved
Reduced long-term workforce requirement on site
The need for infill areas and decking joints is minimised
Individual components of the formwork system can be precisely adjusted
The repetitive nature of the work makes it easier to plan construction activities


Decking with non-slip surfaces can be used to enhance safety
Interconnected truss members provide a stable working platform
The repetitive nature of work ensures quick familiarity with safety procedures
Falsework units can be assembled at ground level, minimising work at height
Table-formwork systems can include standard health and safety features such as guard rails
