What is it?

How it's Installed
An essential preparation
Most concrete pours require some form of shuttering

When pouring concrete you must ensure that you have the area contained with some form of barrier. Without a solid barrier in place the concrete will spill over into areas it doesn’t belong.

Shuttering is the erection of a temporary or permanent barrier that holds the concrete in place whilst it is being poured and over the course of curing (drying). Once the concrete has been set you can remove the shuttering.

Shuttering Applications
You'll need shuttering on almost every industrial concrete pour

Shuttering is used at the pointers of pours and at day joints between successive pours. Some Shuttering or ‘Formwork’ can be left in place between pours and become an integral part of the floor. We can advise on which type suits each floor and budget.

our process
Installing shuttering for a project

Shutters and formwork would be set out by an engineer and the line controlled by good old-fashioned string lines. The height will be suitably set either by a rotating laser or a very accurate optical device depending on the level tolerance. All shutters must be suitably braced to ensure they remain in place. It is our specific calculations and experience that tells us how this can be achieved.
