Wall Formwork – Advantages, Types & Applications

Wall formwork is a reusable form that allows a manufacturer to create sections of a concrete wall. The wall formwork originally consisted of the frame and accessories. This results in a modular system with a wide range of applications and long service life, and universal and high efficiency for walls in medium to big scale projects under crane assistance. It can be adjusted individually to adapt to complex shapes and high loads. Generally, the concrete building structure with high requirements on the surface and the anchoring pattern can be effectively realized using the frame wall formwork.
