Formworks for vaults

Cross-vaults, barrel-vaults, sail-vaults, and tent-vaults are structures that are in great demand for the reconstruction of old edifices as well as the construction of new buildings. A vault is an architectural element with a timeless appeal that satisfies both aesthetic and structural requirements.

Arbloc offers polystyrene foam formworks that are cut to size and coated with different types of materials according to the specific requirements, from brick laying to concrete casting.

It differs from a sail vault because of the diagonals. The central part is raised over the top of the lateral arches forming 4 sails. The sizes are on request. They can also be made without emphasizing the cross of the diagonals.
