What are shuttering and formwork?
Formwork is the general term for when a temporary mould is used to pour concrete so it can form in the correct shape. Formwork is traditionally constructed using timber. Shuttering, a kind of formwork, is where you construct the mould using timber and a special type of water-resistant plywood. Shuttering and formwork are widely used on large construction projects, as well as smaller projects such as a new room or a shed. Shuttering and formwork are usually supported by falsework. Falsework keeps the shuttering in place as the concrete dries and is usually made with poles or other stabilisers. Shuttering is a very important part of almost all construction involving concrete, so experienced professionals must do it. The Southampton Carpenters provide shuttering for anyone who needs it, from large scale construction projects to DIY enthusiasts, so give us a call today!

The shuttering process
Shuttering isn’t as simple as just pouring concrete into wooden moulds. There are lots of different factors to take into consideration. At the start of your consultation, we will discuss the dimensions you require for your project, as well as how you will use the space and what materials will be used for the flooring. These factors help us to determine things such as where and how high the concrete will go.
With the consultation finished, we will begin constructing the mould for the shuttering. We always cut the planks to the same level as the flooring so that when we pour the concrete there is a nice even surface.
