Klevabrick empowers unskilled people to learn and earn an income.
Mould Design & Operation
Operation of a Typical K1 Mould
Wooden blocks to form void recesses
The concept of building without mortar removes the need for a bricklayer. This requires the Klevabricks to always be of the exact same size.
Klevabrick moulds are made by welding 5mm laser cut steel plate forming the sides A to D and the bottom cup. This bottom cup has a loose urethane liner which produces the front off shutter design The moulds are accurate to within 0,25mm.
This design can be of any pattern and even of a cut stone finish as the de-moulding is perpendicular to the concrete face, there is no abrasion and the moulds will last for up to 8 years plus of daily use.
- The use of Klevabrick moulds require 4/5 easily repetitive steps both for assembly and de-moulding.
- This manufacturing approach makes Klevabricks ideal for unskilled people to learn and be productive and earn an income.
- The Klevabrick concept is deliberately designed to create employment in their manufacture as compared to the use of industrially and machine-made building materials.
- It is in fact opposite to the idea of using machines for greater efficiency.
- It is designed to create employment.
- RDP 40m2 plus houses are easily manufactured and built by a team of unskilled people on a daily bases.
K4 mould – A K1 with sleeve anchor holes
Top plate to form 2 x 10x55mm holes to accommodate sleeve anchors to connect perpendicular wall
Side locking wedges
Klevabrick moulds are designed to be quick & simple to use.
All sides fit exactly and are numbered and located by the locating pins on the side pieces B & C only.
ASSEMBLING THE MOULD
- Fit side A to the bottom cup
- Fit sides B & C and locate with locating pins
- Fit side D & conduits
- Fit reinforcing onto locating pins
- Fit the side locking wedges – mould complete
- Concrete can now be cast using either a table or probe vibrator
- Strick off top with small wooden float
- Knock out all wedges
- Knock out locating pins
- Tap side A backwards until free (Perpendicular to concrete face)
- Tap side D backwards until free
- Tap sides B & C away until free
- Tap out wooden void formers
- Turn mould upside-down and tip out Klevabrick
