Safety Peno’s And Plinths

Safety Peno's Formwork and Plinths

safety peno

The safety of workers is a major concern on a construction site. This is particularly crucial when constructing multi-storey buildings. If a worker falls through a penetration it could very likely be fatal.

MasterForm’s safety peno formwork system significantly increases the level of safety at construction sites for workers. There will be far less likely to fall through any unguarded penetrations.

We design custom manufactured penetration forms with rated mesh, designed to withstand imposed temporary construction loads to mitigate the risk of live edges and the time and cost associated with establishing temporary fall protection.

These products are very simple to use and can easily be transported, installed, and used. Ply can be cut to size and used to cover the opening which allows easy access to the penetration while also ensuring that workers and bystanders are completely protected.

What Safety Peno's can do for you

Peno’s are prefabricated slab penetration formwork systems that have a safety mesh fixed in place. They provide accurate penetrations and are made to be fall-proof. They are shop drawn at our warehouse before being manufactured and are quick and easy to install on-site. Our peno’s come with a pre-installed safety mesh that is designed to prevent anyone from falling through the openings in slabs, while also speeding up your floor cycles.

What Plinths Can Do For You

A plinth is a concrete slab that acts as a base to support the structure on top of it, such as a mechanical plant. These are made from durable steel and can be cast in or post-fixed on top of the slab. MasterForm supply a wide range of quality plinths that are available to be purchased and shipped to customers in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and elsewhere in Australia.
