Precautions and Applications of Steel Formwork in Construction Operations

Building steel formwork is a steel formwork used for concrete pouring and forming. The steel formwork is widely used in construction projects due to its features such as multiple reuse, beautiful concrete pouring, and more. Bridge steel formwork is specially used for building railway or highway bridges and is an essential material in the construction industry.


Building steel formwork is commonly used in high-rise construction. It has the characteristics of high strength, good rigidity, durability and more. Its structure is simple, installation is fast, repair is convenient, and production efficiency is high. It can be repeatedly used after simple repair, which saves costs.


Precautions for operating steel formwork


Let's take a look at the following:


  • Before the formwork is put into place, remove the debris and rubble between the steel formwork and the well wall to prevent jamming.

  • Do not pull hard or use a sling to hit the formwork when the threaded rod does not shorten or the formwork is stuck.

  • To ensure the synchronous falling of the formwork, you can prepare symbols on the steel wire rope at the wellhead and adjust them at any time according to the symbols and the force status.

  • When trying to find the correct position, pay attention to the stable centerline. If there is any swaying, take the center value. When leveling, ensure that the joints are flat.

  • When the formwork is falling, remove the debris on the formwork first. Nobody is allowed to stand above or below the building steel formwork, and other personnel should not perform unrelated work.

  • When pouring concrete, first fix the four corner templates, and then gradually add them nearby in sequence. A dedicated person should carefully compact to prevent honeycomb, hemp surface, and more.

  • The steel wire rope is suspended near the formwork five meters away, and should be wrapped with a rubber hose to prevent damage. Check every move, and if it exceeds the limit of damage, deal with it according to regulations.


Applications of building steel formwork


Building steel formwork, including concrete metal formwork,  is a temporary support structure, which is the key to ensuring the quality and safety of concrete construction, accelerating construction progress, and reducing project costs. Building steel formwork should bear the horizontal and vertical loads during the construction of concrete structures and ensure the pouring and forming of concrete structures according to design requirements.


Building steel formwork is widely used in large-span and heavy-duty, multi-story and high-rise buildings, such as shopping malls, office buildings, stations and more.
