Formwork companies and formwork contactors will provide clients with moulds into which concrete or another hardening material is poured for the creation of parts for structures.
Concrete formwork is the use of moulds by a formwork company to create concrete slabs for use in construction. The moulds are then broken away or left in place, leaving a completed concrete form as part of the larger structure. This can be done in a variety of ways: timber formwork, engineered formwork, re-usable plastic formwork or stay-in-place formwork. Concrete was an unstable substance in the past, however concrete today is reinforced making concrete formwork safer and superior.
A formwork company can make use of many different types of concrete formwork techniques, allowing them to offer a greater number of different formwork services. Timber formwork uses moulds constructed from wood, whereas engineered formwork has moulds constructed from engineered metal frames. Re-usable plastic formwork uses an interlocking system to build simple concrete structures and lastly, stay-in-place formwork usually involves concrete moulds which are filled with cement and left in place in the structure.
