What is formwork and falsework?

Here is an easy way to understand what formwork and falsework is and how they are used in construction and civil engineering.

Formwork and falsework are used together to create straight and curved concrete walls, pillars, foundations and so on.

Formwork is the term to describe the temporary supports used as moulds into which concrete is poured.

And falsework is the temporary support – such as props - that gives vertical support to the formwork until the concrete sets and the structure can support itself.

Benefits to using Mabey Hire:

  • Peace of mind with our extensive engineering support network
  • Efficiency assured with our comprehensive range of modular formwork and falsework products available for your requirements
