Aluma Stringer

The Aluma Stringer is stronger and deeper than the Aluma Beam. It is 190 mm (7.5 in.) deep and permits larger spans between intermediate supports. It provides structural strength comparable to a 152mm x 304mm (6 in. x 12 in.) spruce member but has only one third the weight.

Applications:

  • Use as a stringer (primary member) for slab formwork
  • May also be used as a beam or a joist (secondary member)
