KForm being installed at the Margaret Mahy Family Park, Christchurch Rebuild
A big job done. Faster, easier and with less risk.
'Using the K-form system saved both time and money, and considering the tight time constraints, was a huge contributing factor in delivering the project on time. Fieldwork's service was exemplary, ensuring product was always available and delivered on time'
Tony Munro JFC/City Care JV Concrete/paving Manager
The process of placing concrete has not changed a lot over the years. In most cases timber forms are boxed out in squares – concrete is poured into alternating squares, the concrete dries, the timber is stripped and then a fresh pour is done in the ‘in-between’ squares.
Having to pour, then sit through drying time, then dismantle the boxing, then pour again, is obviously a very time consuming process. And on top of that they would have to cut control joints into the concrete with a diamond saw – again adding time.
On this project JFC + City Care chose our K-Form product.
Because K-Form is made from uPVC, it’s a lightweight cast in-place permanent screed rail, strong enough to handle all types of conventional mechanical screeds. It’s fast and easy to put in place. Plus it provides control, construction and isolation joints.
In other words, you set up, pour and the K-Form simply stays in the ground
On this Christchurch job, JFC + City Care used K-From to set up the entire area and poured everything in one go - because K-From stays in place, they didn’t have to waste valuable project time with hit and miss pours.
On top of that, there was no need to diamond cut as the KForm acts as a control joint already cast in place - and it comes with a removable top strip to provide a clean, dry void for filling with a sealant.
The K-Form Advantage
No hit and miss pouring, no box stripping, faster to place, no diamond cutting.
The risk of uncontrolled cracking was all but removed, which means less risk of jack hammers, re-placing and any costly time penalties.
Labour, waste management, diamond cutting.
