What is Formwork?
Find out why formwork is key to your new construction project in Sydney
Formwork is the process of constructing a mould to pour and set concrete into a specific shape. In construction projects, formwork is commonly used to form load-bearing structural supports such as pillars and walls. Therefore, it is vital to ensure you have a reliable construction company to develop the Formwork for your project. Otherwise the project may be delayed if the formwork cannot pass engineering requirements.
One of the very first types of formwork, Timber is a solid choice for many projects. The flexibility of this wooden material is clear when you take a look at its many advantages. It is easy to produce and workable into many different shapes, heights, and sizes. This can make difficult portions of a certain structure easier to manage.
Timber is also lightweight in comparison to its competitors and when used in smaller projects, it can be quite economical. The downside to timber tends to be the time consumption. In larger projects this can be a problem and will bring your labour costs up. Also, termites can be an issue. Plywood is often used alongside timber as it has similar properties.
There has been a growing popularity in steel and aluminium formwork over the years. This is mostly due to its durability. Cost is a factor as steel and aluminium formwork does cost more money, however, the long service life that this material boasts can repay that cost. Though it is not only the long lifespan that makes this type of formwork a popular choice.
The smooth finish that steel and aluminium can create is attractive and it is easily installed and dismantled. Water resistance is another important plus, alongside its suitability for curved surfaces. The main difference between steel and aluminium is the strength and density. Steel is stronger yet heavier, providing a slightly harder installation, but with more reassurance.
Plastic formwork is used mainly for relatively simple concrete structures. Assembled with interlocking panels or modular systems, this formwork is lightweight yet tough. It can be reused multiple times and cover large sections easily, however, plastic formwork does not boast high levels of flexibility when compared to timber. This is because many components are prefabricated.
Also known as flexible formwork, fabric systems use strong sheets of lightweight fabric to create moulds for unconventional construction jobs. This technology is relatively new and is proving extremely useful when constructing architecturally interesting buildings or structures. Additionally, less concrete is used in this type of formwork, resulting is a cheaper cost.
Assembled on site, this type of formwork is permanent and remains after the concrete has set to provide extra reinforcement. It is made out of prefabricated, fibre-reinforced plastic forms and prevents environmental effects such as corrosion. Stay-in-place formwork is often used for piers or columns.
Another type of formwork that is put together on site, insulating concrete forms are usually the preferred choice of permanent insulated formwork. This advanced system offers permanent insulation. It achieves this by installing polystyrene boards which stay in place after the concrete has been cured. Also, other advantages of this formwork include potential fire-resistance, rodent-resistance and sound proofing.
Why choose G-Force Constructions professional Formwork services in Sydney?
Formwork for concrete can be a frustrating time-consuming task which can slow down your project. Get it wrong, and you’ll have to start again. It is important to achieve perfect Formwork results to ensure that the poured concrete meets engineering specifications. Otherwise, the set concrete may have to be altered or removed in order to meet minimum requirements. Poor Formwork and Concreting work can lead to significant delays and costs to the project.
Additionally, nobody understands concrete like G-Force Constructions. There are many things to take into consideration when constructing Formwork and setting concrete. This includes knowing how long concrete will take to completely set based on temperature, humidity, thickness of the wet concrete and other factors.
Whilst, concrete may look to be set from the outside, but it still may not be set in the middle. That is why it is extremely important to work with a professional concreting company when your project is relying on Formwork.
Furthermore, G-Force Constructions is a trusted Sydney Formwork professional. Our track record speaks for itself. With an impeccable safety record and high-quality results, G-Force Constructions have been a reliable Concreting and Formwork company since 2012.
