The construction of cast in-situ reinforced concrete columns, particularly those that require a high quality finish or a bespoke profile, usually involve the use of a column former. Each former is designed to meet the specific requirements of the project including the size, shape, finish and number of re-uses. Using this information, our designers will select the most appropriate material for each former and create a 3D CAD model for approval.
Please contact a member of our project design team for assistance with determining the most appropriate type of column former to suit the project requirements.
Once approved, the 3D CAD model can be converted in to CAM data allowing accurate manufacture of the column former via a range of technologies dependent on the selected material. Column formers are manufactured using a wide range of materials from Filcor (Expanded Polystyrene) through to Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP).
Used for the construction of cast in-situ reinforced concrete columns.
