Formwork for Walls
Fast-Form TM is the only large wall formwork system that can truly be erected by hand, with no part weighing more than 25kg. The only system to be able to cope with straight or radius from the same components the steel version is modular and can be built in situ.
Fast-Form have also launched an Aluminium version, which comes in readymade panels of 1.22m x 1.94m / 1.22m x 2.44m and 1.22m x 3.24m and can be simply lifted into place manually and another panel fixed to them. This is especially good for repetitive use and gives the only truly manageable panel system, a 1.22 x 2.44 panel weighing around 35kg complete. 2 men can easily pick it up and move it meaning vastly reduced labour costs and as with the standard system they can be joined for larger pour heights.
This is beneficial for many basements where a wall formwork system is required but where a crane or mechanical lifting cannot be used. The panels can be moved like a large panel formwork system if required. The system also comes with optional full access and handrail system for safe working.
The system is especially suitable for basements under existing properties as you could fit the whole system through a small window and erect it underneath.
Another benefit is the sizes Fast-Form offer, unlike panel systems all their uprights can be mixed and matched so if you have a sloping wall you can start with one size of upright and change as required and the system will work with the smaller bracket system which can also be used for sheet pile capping beams.
Fast-Form uprights come in 1.9m / 2.4m & 3.2m and all can be joined so the company can also supply 1.9m / 2.4m / 3.2m / 3.8m/ 4.3m / 4.8m / 5.1m / 5.6m & 6.4m.
The system can also pour radius walls using the same components, simply omit the joining braces between uprights, generally faced with ply the system can also be faced with Alkus plastic ply for a truly GREEN solution.
The system can be erected and ply fitted after which means it is also in its element where there are water bars and need to make sure that the pour is very clean before you pour as you could fit the ply just before pouring, you can also erect, for example, a 3.2m system and pour in 2 or 3 pours, only putting on ply when you need to. This is very useful for waterproof structures that have pour height restrictions.
Comes with drawings, fitting instructions and structural calculations included.
