Water related projects
The scale and diversity of water applications requires not only conventional, but also special formwork to ensure a safe, high quality end product. Special forms have included: shaped butress ends, crest formers, drag screed systems and single faced cantilever systems. For such applications, a high degree of accuracy is required in terms of the design solution and the fabricated formwork.
Tunnels, culverts and bridges
RMD Kwikform have provided forms for a variety of tunnel and culvert projects throughout the world. Our experience ranges from huge travellers for immersed tube elements to compact and fully automated telescopic circular tunnel formwork machines. RMD Kwikform has vast knowledge and experience of bridge construction, and in the past has provided forms for pylons, piers and crossheads, as well as travellers for balanced cantilever construction.
Columns and piers
The design of columns and piers varies enormously, heightening the need for innovative formwork solutions. The RMD Kwikform designs for columns and pier forms aim to reduce labour and construction time by minimising site joints and ties. As a result of this expertise, a wide variety of column forms can be produced to specification, in both a timely and cost effective manner.
Energy, industry and commerce
RMD Kwikform have provided forms to a range of energy related projects, from natural gas storage to coal bunkers for power stations. For commercial buildings, we have provided tunnel formwork systems to construct the walls and slabs monolithically.
Our highly responsive team of designers, fabricators, logistical and safety experts all work to the common goal of providing effective, easy to use and economical formwork, to aid your construction project.
Pre-cast and site moulds
Designed to be consistently accurate with high quality concrete surface finish, RMD Kwikform can provide tailor made moulds of any shape and size to suit our clients specific requirements. We ensure that all moulds manufactured are easy to assemble on site, accurately and with the minimum fuss.
Ultraguard is the new lightweight, galvanised edge protection system from RMD Kwikform. A unique 'Z' profiled interlocking barrier system, Ultraguard is capable of providing quick, easy and safe edge protection in every instance at the slab edge.
