Formwork Types and Its Application In Construction
Construction formwork, also known as shuttering, is a permanent or semi-permanent structure used to support the construction building being erected. The formwork consists of concrete that is poured and hardened to withstand all types of loads. It should be properly braced both vertically, and diagonally so that it keeps its form and structure. It should be set accurately, be as light as possible with waterproof joins so that no swelling or movement occurs.
Formwork is vital to the safety of workers across the globe. With many computer programs now available in the construction industry, it is easier than ever for companies to know exactly what amount, shape, and size formwork they need before they commence a build. They will be able to estimate the construction and scaffolding formwork requirements and engage the correct companies before the commencement date.
As Construction grows so fast, Does the need for solid and reliable formwork? Scaffolding formwork is the backbone of any build and provides a safe and level working platform for the thousands of Construction Workers from day to day.
Scaffolding formwork comes in 2 main forms, that bring temporary and permanent structures. Whereas construction formwork is usually permanent, scaffolding formwork is most likely temporary and removable allowing for adjustments to be made quickly and easily where required. Formwork will form the basis of your concrete work and allow you the support and load bearing needed to ensure a safe worksite with minimal safety concerns.
Formwork has gone through many changes over the years and today it comes in both aluminum for smaller jobs where access is tight, to steel for your high rise construction where load-bearing is much higher.
