Taking the Guesswork Out Of Construction

If you are working on a project around your house or yard, you might be tempted to put that old saw to good use or to make do with that shovel. However, there is a right tool and a wrong tool to use for every different job, which is why it is so important to understand how to use industrial construction equipment. For example, that backhoe might mean that you can level your backyard in a jiffy or move around those heavy landscaping rocks. By going through the articles on my blog, you might be able to learn more about professional equipment, so that you don't have to drag out your next project.

What Type Of Commercial Forming System Do I Need?

Commercial forming systems are used in the construction of commercial buildings. There are several types of commercial forming systems to choose from. The one you'll need to choose depends on the type of building you are constructing. Then, the commercial form can be sent to your construction site and used in your project.

Radius Forming

Radius forming is used to construct a curved structure. For example, you might need to construct a water treatment tank. You could construct a segmented radius. However, it is better to use a commercial forming system that creates a real curve. Fortunately, with commercial forming, it's possible to create any type of curve, and there is no radius that is too tight for this method.

Riser Forming

Riser forming is used when you will need to construct stairs or a stadium. They are versatile and can be used in a broad range of projects. They can also be adjusted to conform to the shape of the building in which they will be placed.

Custom Wood Forming

Custom wood forms are fabricated using wood and the form is then sent to the site of your project. The creation of parts used to create the wooden form is automated so that the form can be perfect. Wooden forms allow you to create a custom structure without the need for the process to be complicated and expensive. 

Column Forming

When you need columns, column forming is one of the best options. The concrete is put in place very quickly using the correct forming materials. The most common type of material used to hold the column in place is laminated veneer lumber. The form has no loose parts after it has been assembled. The columns are highly durable. 

Pre-Cast Shafts

Precast shafts are a commercial forming system that is useful when creating walls. The forms are secured so that you will have great results after pouring the concrete. The form comes with a platform that is meant to be used by the workers and is removed when no longer needed.

Commercial forming can allow you to more easily create types of buildings that would be more difficult to create. However, you might want to consult with a heavy construction expert to learn about the type of equipment and materials you will need to construct your building. Then, the right form will arrive at the job site and you'll be able to integrate it into your project.
