What is column formwork?
A column formwork system is a construction piece or framework that provides a building’s shape. being typically modular in nature, column formwork systems make speeded erection and installation on site possible while saving time and labour costs. To ensure the safety of the structure being constructed, the materials used need to be able to produce a durable and solid structure.
The forms are made of steel and in some cases, may have a timber form-face liner. Depending on the column size needed, forms can be adjusted on site to suite them The internal surfaces also vary to suit the concrete finish needed. Working platforms are typically erected separately for systems with disposable formwork, allowing for safe access to the top area of the column forms.
