Arguably the most efficient, profitable, safest and user friendly system on the market!

Rebar, Mesh and Construction Supplies (Pty) Ltd acquired the exclusive rights to distribute the SPARTAN Precast Concrete System and Panelware/Tiltform Site Cast / Tilt-Up Formwork Systems, in Africa, from SRB SYSTEMS in Australia. SRB SYSTEMS provide faster, safer, easier and more cost-effective systems and product alternatives for the precast and tilt-up construction industry.

SPARTAN Precast Formwork System


  • Is unique, flexible, comprehensive and lightweight.
  • Offer state-of-the art technology to the precast industry.
  • Offers a lightweight alternative to heavy plant systems
  • Brings with it substantial increases in productivity, cost-efficiency, simplicity and safety.
  • Is superbly suited to the robust and demanding requirements of the precast industry.
  • Arguably the most efficient, profitable, safest and user friendly system on the market.
SPARTAN Precast Formwork System Magnet


  • Comparatively smaller and lighter than most other equivalent strength magnet clamps on the market.
  • Its shear strength capacity substantially outperforms most other equivalent pull down strength (1,800kgs) magnets on the market.
  • Its fully sealed housing protects it from dirt and foreign metallic magnetic matter.
  • The structural polymer housing minimises concrete adhesion / stick and allows easier cleaning and maintenance.
  • The handle operation to engage and disengage the magnet clamp is incredibly easy.
  • It is far more efficient and user-friendly than any other magnet on the market.
  • A de-magnetising plate in the rear prevents accidental engagement.
  • It has no shear zones.
  • Is one of the safest magnetic clamps on the market for operational use and handling.
  • It is designed to absorb production vibration, outperforming the majority of other magnets in the market on vibrating beds and tables.
  • Semi-engagement function allows for easy fine positioning adjustments to shuttering or edgeforms


The SRB Precast Formwork System is unique, comprehensive and lightweight. Designed and manufactured in Australia, the system is superbly suited to the robust and demanding requirements of the precast industry.

The system includes:
  • Lightweight magnet clamps that punch way beyond their weight and size in comparison with other magnet clamps on the market.
  • Fully adjustable sideform / edgeform moulds that allow height adjustment in 5mm (¼ inch) increments, and the ability to change the edge fillet chamfer.

Magnetic Products

SRB Systems is continually undertaking research and development to create smaller, lighter and stronger magnet clamps for use in supporting formwork, and other components and auxiliaries, to steel precast tables.

Plant & Equipment

SRB Systems have designed and manufactured a number of brilliant trolleys and tools to make your job a lot more simple and efficient. Check them out in this section.

Sideforms / Shuttering

SRB Systems Sideforms are developed for optimum functionality and efficiency.

All our sideforms are manufactured from structural grade aluminium extrusion making them strong and lightweight. This enables handling and installation to be a one man operation and eliminates the need for slow and cumbersome handling equipment. This results in substantial cost efficacy and productivity increases.

Our novel Spartan & Centurion Sideforms / Edgeforms are a composite sideform incorporating interchangeable capping profiles. This enables sideform height adjustment up to 50 mm (2 inches) overall, in small 5 mm (¼ inch) increments, simply by snapping on a new capping profile on the standard height aluminium extrusion. Accordingly, a 150 mm (6 inch) sideform can increase in height to a 200 mm (8 inch) sideform, or to any size in between in 5 mm (¼ inch) increments.

This incredible adjustability eliminates the need to carry vast stock of costly varying size edgeforms and sideforms, which can in turn be replaced with stock of far more cost-effective varying polymer capping sizes and profiles.

All our capping profiles and sideforms are colour coded for size which greatly simplifies quality assurance procedures by allowing for visual checking of edgeform heights.

Not only can the sideform heights change, the chamfer profile can also be changed via varying chamfer profiles in the capping.

The Spartan Sideform has rubber base inserts for chamfers that seal against the steel casting bed / table to minimise concrete bleed under the sideform. This greatly improves quality and drastically reduces labour and material costs in cleaning the casting beds and repairs to concrete edge.

The Centurion and Spartan Edgeforms are epoxy powder coated to minimise concrete stick / adhesion and give better edge finish to the concrete.

Alternate Clamping

Precast Magnet Clamps are not the only method of securing sideforms or shutters to a precast table.

For situations where use of precast magnet clamps is prohibitive, SRB have developed alternate mechanical fixing methods for sideforms and shutters, both of which are completely compatible and able to be integrated with the Magnet Clamp System.

Accordingly workers are not limited to one system. A varied combination of fixing methods and situations can be used without any waste because the same parts and components are fully integrable between the different methods and systems.
