How it works
K-Form uPVC screeding rail provides the construction industry, with an economical, efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to steel shuttering. Made from recycled materials, K-Form is lightweight, durable and does not require removal after concrete pouring. It is easily cut to length on site and has pre-drilled holes in the vertical face for locating steel dowels bars and in the base for mortar anchoring. Furthermore, the design features end clips for joining and a removable top strip for joint sealing. Designed to be used with twin beams, bunyan rollers or vibro strikes, K-Form K135 and K85 disposable railing replaces steel forms where joints are needed.
The project required multiple bay setups to pour concrete areas quickly due to unpredictable sea conditions for a 175mm slab, K-Form was able to demonstrate a fast simple solution compared to traditional timber shutter methods which gave a fast and professional approach which allowed us to pour adjoining bays along with a perfect construction joint detail afterwards.Download case study (PDF)
