Beam formwork is a particular type of building formwork used for casting monoliths. A distinctive characteristic of this type of formwork is its versatility, which has led to its widespread use, both for creating standard structures and for columns or wall structures of any shape. Due to the ability to adapt the formwork to building structures of any complexity and size, it has become widespread.
Features and benefits of beam formwork
These include the following factors:
- Profitability. The application provides low costs of resources and time without attracting special equipment to the construction site;
- Changing the configuration of formwork elements during construction work;
- Very high resistance to deformations and loads of both formwork elements and the entire final monolithic structure (load-bearing capacity);
- The modularity of the system makes it possible to erect elements of complex geometric shapes; in practice, it is possible to adapt the beam formwork to almost any object.
