DUO System Formwork


The DUO system formwork is characterized by its low weight and extremely simple handling. Not only the material used is very innovative, but also the entire concept: with a minimal number of different system components, walls, columns and slabs can be easily and efficiently formed with only a minimal number of different system components. DUO is the optimal solution for small-sized components with lower surface requirements as well as for restoration work where no crane can be used.

Besides the panels including the formlining, most DUO accessories are made of the new innovative composite material with a polymer basis. This material is extremely light and, at the same time, has a high load-bearing capacity.

Apart from the material, the developers focused on ensuring that the formwork system was easy to handle. Almost all operations with DUO can be carried out without tools, and the working steps are easy to understand. Even less experienced users of system formwork can work quickly and efficiently with DUO. The fact that the majority of system components can be used for walls, columns and slabs additionally increases the performance. Last but not least, DUO reduces noise pollution on the construction site – an important aspect, for example, on inner-city construction sites.

Universally applicable

High utilization rate of the components through flexible forming of walls, columns and slabs using only one system

Fast and easy to assemble

Fast working procedures thanks to simple formwork rules and uncomplicated application without the use of a hammer

Installation without the use of a crane

High productivity and crane-independence due to the low weight

Technical Details

DUO can be used for

Vertical walls

  • up to 5.40 m high
  • with wall thicknesses from 15 cm to 40 cm
  • for a maximum fresh concrete pressure of 50 kN/m²


  • up to 30 cm slab thicknesses


  • with cross-sections from 15 cm to 55 cm in 5 cm increments
  • for a maximum fresh concrete pressure of 80 kN/m²

RFID technology for DUO

Scan. Identify. Go.
Think digital with RFID for DUO.

RFID technology helps to make the material flow on the construction site more transparent and to optimise logistics processes. The key: an RFID tag, a smartphone or UHF reader and the PERI MATERIAL SCAN app.

This allows for quick product identification and takes your logistics processes to the next level. For this purpose, the DUO panels are provided with an RFID tag so that they can subsequently be clearly identified and assigned with a reader.

Furthermore, thanks to the RFID tags, it is possible to call up specific component information, assembly and usage instructions and product videos digitally in the PERI MATERIAL SCAN app by scanning the panels.

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Simple identification and bulk detection of the panels thanks to the use of RFID tags
  • Optimised logistics processes according to the Track & Trace principle by scanning the formwork material in the incoming and outgoing goods department
  • Fast and digital access to product information using the PERI MATERIAL SCAN app

An RFID retrofit kit is available for your DUO stock material, with which you can easily and independently add RFID tags to your panels.
