Lane Cove, NSW - Polywall ICF project
Retaining Walls - Basement
Madewell Construction pty Ltd
Polywall 270 (150mm Concrete Core) Combine with Polywall 320 (200mm Concrete Core)
Unloading the product
It was simple to unload the ICF from the Truck. Although the Truck was 8.5 meters long, 2.4-meter wide and 2.7meter height and fully packed, we shifted the polystyrene pallets and the brackets bundles quite quickly and efficiently—lightweight unloading.
This specific site has difficult truck access, so we had to carry the product about 50 meters up to the site, and as you can see, one person can take an entire ~1.62m3 cube. Save a lot of time—unloading and going straight to the wall installation.
