Providing comprehensive wall formwork systems to cater for any application and concrete finish required.

What is Wall Formwork?

Vertical or wall formwork are modular systems that can be used for any vertical application or concrete finish. Our wall formwork systems are traditional vertical formwork systems that can be man-handled or gang-formed. At Uni-span, we understand various formwork types and our designs are accurately created to your strict project requirements.

Our vertical horizontal systems include Uni-Lite, Economy Form Panel, NOE and Uni-Flex. Uni-Lite and NOE are modular timber-faced panel systems which provide a smooth concrete finish.

The Types of Wall Formwork In Construction

There are various types of wall formwork available, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Traditional wall formwork is the oldest and most commonly used method, while steel and aluminium prefabricated formwork is popular due to its durability and flexibility.

Timber prefabricated formwork, on the other hand, is ideal for smaller construction projects, while plastic prefabricated formwork is lightweight and easy to handle. With so many options available, it’s important to choose the right type of formwork for your specific construction needs.
