Order made to measure dovetailed sheets
The original dovetailed sheets are rolled, self-supporting steel reinforcement plates. These plates serve as formwork and reinforcement for thin lightweight concrete floors. They are also used on wooden and steel supporting structures. Since 2019 Ripstaal is also one of the most reliable suppliers of dovetailed sheets in the Netherlands.
Features of dovetailed sheets
The profiled dovetailed sheets are made in our own factory. The technique of dovetailed sheets, in use since 1859, has been greatly improved by Ripstaal experts and made available for both new construction and renovation projects.
Characteristics of dovetailed sheets
- Low own weight (from 60 kg/m2) with high permissible load
