Slipform Concrete

Contact us for sales or technical advice on this product

Description

Slipform is a method of construction in which concrete is poured into a slow but continuously moving form.

As concrete is poured, the formwork is raised continuously at a speed which allows the concrete to harden sufficiently before it is exposed by the moving formwork. The setting characteristics and consistency of the concrete are closely monitored to achieve a continuous lift rate. Each project has its own unique set of concrete mixes specifically designed to suit the requirements of the type, size and speed of slip form and the ambient conditions at the time of construction.
