A Fast, Economical and Efficient Solution

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.

Big metal systems are inefficient and expensive  on the large scale

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.

Hand forming is time consuming and wasteful

What we use instead

We use the Gates Camlock System. It has been 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. There are virtually no nail or screws used in the system, this means it comes apart easily and the separate components can be reused countless times. This reduces the cost per use immensely and reduces the waste which impacts the environment. Since the system utilizes standard 18mm plywood and 4X2’s it is light weight, easy to handle and very versatile.
