The fastest, most inexpensive concrete forming systems for hire or purchase in the UK
We use the Gates Camlock System, a system in use for over 70 years in North America. It is tried, well-tested and proven to be the most effective and efficient method of hand forming. It has proven to be up to 5X faster than conventional wood forms to erect and dismantle.
All this adds up to reduced labour costs and lower material costs. As a result this means SAVINGS FOR YOU, the contractor.
Cadet Concrete Systems was founded in the UK by a Canadian carpenter, with over 34 years of experience in the construction industry both on the tools and running his own companies.
Everybody who does concrete forming is familiar with the big metal systems. They’re very efficient on the large scale.
If you’re doing a massive concrete project where you’re doing the same thing over and over again you can’t beat the big metal forms. BUT THEY ARE EXPENSIVE. They are very heavy in manpower, cranes/telehandlers are required for moving them and there are a lot of heavy components to put them together and brace them. They do not work on smaller stuff.
For the smaller stuff you need to use wood. Even the big jobs have small parts that need hand forming. Everyone knows the time, cost and waste of material when hand forming. You cut your timbers, make a frame, screw the plywood onto it, use it a few times and then throw it in the skip when you’re done. This is where we come in.

The forms Cadet supplied and the temporary works made our job go very smoothly and on schedule. Their forming system was very easy to use and Cameron was extremely helpful. Will definitely be using them again.
