Leada Acrow has placed a £1.5m order with German manufacturer Meva for additional supplies of the MevaDec slab formwork system.
Leada Acrow is the sole supplier of Meva products for hire in Great Britain. It says that MevaDec enables slab forming to become much simpler and faster, with the use of a multi-direction primary beam, drop-head and a quick release system.
Leada Acrow director Simon Coveney said: “We already had a sizeable fleet of MevaDec slab formwork, but the demand for this system has been so high that we have increased its availability. Our customers have recognised the many benefits of MevaDec in terms of efficiency and enabling fast-track construction, and hence it is being used on many high profile projects across the country.”
He added: “For instance, we have supplied 2,200m2 of our new MevaDec supplies to Stephenson Group for use during construction of student accommodation at Finsbury Park in London. With MevaDec, a complete concrete slab can be completed within just three days, so there are significant time and cost savings for clients. We anticipate that we will be continuing investment in more MEVA products in the near future.”
