The Project

Replacement of damaged see front defences

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 solution

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.
