Steel forms

Steel forms

Removable pieces of steel which hold wet concrete in the desired shapes for casting foundations, footings and window frames on the spot. Some formwork comes with interlocking modular hardware. They are long-lasting; produce a clean, accurate face; and are easier to set up, take down, and clean than wooden forms.
