What is the Symons Forming System?
The Symons forming system is a concrete forming technique that was invented in the early 1900s. The system is used to create concrete structures such as walls, slabs, and columns. In the time since its creation many other companies have created compatible forms allowing for mix and match opportunities and even more customization.
Formwork is a temporary structure that supports the wet concrete while it cures and hardens into a solid form. Formwork can be made from various materials such as plywood, steel, and plastic. The type of formwork can vary depending on the project requirements and budget restrictions.
How Is It Used?
The formwork system ups performance and output for concrete projects. The system is made up of two basic components: steel forms and timber frames. The timber frames are used to support the weight of the concrete while it cures, while the steel forms are used to create the shape of the structure.
What are the Benefits?
The benefits of using this steel formwork system are several:
• Can be used for any type of concrete construction including the base, walls, columns, beams and so on.
• Can be assembled without any tools or heavy equipment.
• It has no vertical joints so it doesn’t crack or rot easily
• It has an adjustable depth which means you can build different shapes with the same formwork
Overall, the quality Symons forming system helps to reduce costs and time spent on the construction site.
