SRC Aggregate Facility

Project Information

Project: Extension to Aggregate facility
Location: Manningtree
Product used: K135

The Project

As part of an ongoing extension to a busy aggregate company further large concrete areas were required.

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. 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

Due to time constraints and the client being a busy aggregate facility, the project required multiple bay setups to pour 200mm concrete slab areas quickly. K-FORM was able to demonstrate a fast and simple solution compared to traditional timber shutter methods. “Working on an uneven subbase, K-FORM gave us a fast and professional approach which allowed us to pour adjoining bays along with a perfect construction joint detail afterwards” – Sauka
