Types Of Formwork

The basic purpose of all types of formwork is to provide a molding mechanism for materials. The most common type of material that is used for molding purposes by formwork is the concrete. Since the construction of the formwork depends on the features of the material that is poured in it therefore, it has some types each of which is different from other in one way or another. The first type is the foundation formwork. In formwork Gold Coast foundations there are also two subtypes. One of which is known as socket foundation and second is known as the striped foundation. The socket foundation is also refereed as the individual foundation. It is basically decided by the size of the foundation formwork that which of the subtype design needs to be followed for this. The individual formwork foundation has similarities to the column foundation and the striped formwork foundation is quite similar to the traditional original formwork.

The next type is the wall formwork. This type of formwork uses timber in its construction along with the use of sheeting boards. These sheeting boards are attached to the sides of the concrete by the using of the nails. Not only these timbers are nailed vertically but these are also nailed in the diagonal manner with the means of sheeting board. There are also prefabricated panels of sheets available in the market and in some cases these panels are used instead of using the boards of sheets. Click here for more info on formwork Wollongong.

The another type of the formwork is known as ceiling formwork. This is that type of formwork which is most commonly found during the construction of the buildings and structures. Just like any other formwork this type also make use of either the prefabricated sheet panels or the boards of the sheets.

After the ceiling formwork there comes the beam formwork. This type of formwork does not utilize the complete prefabricated sheet panels but it uses some components of this. These components are the bottom and sides of these panels. The size of these components must be considered according to the size of all other components so that all of these work well together. It is observed that the size and thickness of the sheet is approximately 100 mm. therefore these individual parts are constructed after the dimensions in the beam projects are finalized. The next type which is column formwork are quite similar to the beam formwork in which prefabricated sheet panels are placed.
