At APL Formwork, we specialise in refurbishing and repairing formwork systems that have experienced wear and tear. Our approach is to avoid the need for a complete replacement of the system by conducting a thorough assessment of its overall condition. We carefully examine the formwork to identify any areas that may have sustained damage or deterioration. Once we have identified these areas, we make the necessary repairs and improvements to restore optimal functionality. Our goal is to ensure that your formwork system is back to performing at its best, so you can enjoy continued success with your projects.

Formwork refurbishment is a cost-effective way to extend your formwork system’s lifespan and increase return on investment. It also reduces costs, minimises waste, and improves sustainability.

Here are some key aspects and benefits:

  • Increased lifespan: Formwork that is properly refurbished can last for many years, even with repeated use. This can save you money on the cost of replacement.

  • Improved performance: Refurbished formwork is often more robust and more durable than new formwork. This can lead to better concrete finishes and reduced construction time.

  • Reduced waste: When you refurbish your formwork, you can avoid the need to dispose of it as waste. This can help to protect the environment and conserve resources.

  • Cost savings: The cost of formwork refurbishment is often much lower than the cost of replacement. This can save you money in the long run.

Evaluation and Assessment

To initiate the process of renovating formwork, it is imperative to assess its present condition thoroughly. This entails meticulously examining all its components, verifying its structural soundness, identifying areas of damage, and evaluating the overall usability of the formwork.

Repair and Replacement

After conducting an initial evaluation and assessment, we will take action to restore and replace any damaged components. This may involve fixing any issues with the formwork components, swapping out any worn-out parts, strengthening weak areas, or addressing any structural concerns. By repairing or replacing specific parts, you can ultimately increase the lifespan of your investment and maximise its profitability.

Cleaning and Maintenance

When it comes to refurbishing formwork, there are several crucial steps that must be taken to ensure optimal performance and longevity. One of the most important steps is cleaning and maintenance. This process involves the thorough removal of any leftover concrete, cleaning the formwork surfaces, and applying protective coatings or treatments to enhance durability and prevent potential future damage.

Cleaning services within the formwork industry are essential for maintaining the quality and reusability of the formwork for future projects. This involves the removal of various construction materials from the formwork surfaces, such as concrete residues, curing compounds, and release agents, after the concrete has been set. These materials can cause significant damage if not removed properly and in a timely fashion.

In addition to cleaning the formwork surfaces, maintenance services may also include preparing the surfaces for future use. This process involves removing any debris, rough edges, or irregularities to ensure a smooth and even surface for the next concrete pour. By taking these steps, you can extend the life of your formwork system and ensure optimal performance for all future projects.
