AFS Systems – For over 20 years, our innovative propriety wall systems afs logicwall® and afs rediwall®, have facilitated the speedy and cost-efficient installation of load-bearing walls in multi-residential and commercial projects throughout Australia, New Zealand, the US, UK, and Canada.
These permanent formwork systems are the first-choice for builders wanting rapid installation, consistent high quality finishes, and a long-life alternative to slower conventional construction methods. The lightweight permanent formwork solutions offer ease of materials handling as they aren’t crane dependent culminating in, accelerated construction times as a result of faster floor-to-floor cycles – all whilst significantly reducing on-site waste.
The complete range of PVC and fibre cement systems are compliant, independently verified and guaranteed to meet Australian Building Codes and Standards, ensuring engineers, architects, builders of multi-residential and commercial projects conform to strict industry regulations.

BlockAid Bar Chairs accurately locate the horizontal reinforcement as the blocks are laid and provide an aperture for the vertical reinforcement to be inserted into the wall, resulting in an accurate lattice of reinforcement throughout the entire wall, to achieve compliance to AS3700.
Australian Governments, Engineers and Certifiers have a vested interest to specify the mandatory use of “bar chairs for blockwork” to improve work practice and achieve compliance for block walls, thereby ensuring block wall assets are insurable.
