In April 2008, MAINI Group launched a new venture called MAINI Aluminium Formwork System (AFS). Currently, there are more than 25 running sites where aluminium formwork is being used and executed under the supervision of qualified engineers and technicians.
MAINI has been credited with indigenizing Aluminium Formwork, one of the most modern formwork systems, which is gaining popularity due to its versatile properties. The company's manufacturing plants are located in Faridabad, NCR, New Delhi, and Pant Nagar, Uttrakhand, which is an upcoming industrial town in North India, located around 250 kms from New Delhi.
AFS is a very cost-effective method as panels can be designed for any component of buildings such as bay windows, stairs, balconies and special architectural features. This system is unique as it allows the quality control of concrete, which increases the durability of the structure. It gives a smooth finish, eliminates the need of internal and external plaster and the walls can be painted directly with a minimal skin coat, which ultimately results in cost saving.
Compared to conventional formwork, an AFS is suitable for load bearing wall construction. It gives an average cost saving of 15% in the building structure and increases usable floor space by over 8 percent as compared to the RCC design. This system is environment-friendly as there is no use of timer. Considering the fact that this formwork gives a cellular design, it is resistant to earthquakes as compared to the traditional RCC column and beam designs. Moreover, since Aluminium Formwork is lightweight, no cranes are required for the same. The major advantages of Aluminium Formwork Systems offered by MAINI include efficiency, safety, uniform construction quality, faster completion, less requirement of manual labor, and simplified design.
Meanwhile, MAINI also specialises in Steel Access Scaffolding, Steel Formwork & Centering, Steel Wallform & Hardware, Steel Scaffolding for Industrial Maintenance & Boiler Maintenance, Special Shuttering for silos and chimneys. The major highlights of the MAINI's scaffolding range include: ease and speed in erection and dismantling, scopes for multiple and varied re-use, rigidity and stability during erection, ease in storing and maintenance, reliable assessment of performance with scopes for safety and eco-friendliness.
