									Concrete shuttering made easy.
“Such a simple and effective
product. I wish this had been
invented sooner.”
K-FORM makes concrete shuttering easy -
easy to save time and labour, easy to use,
easy to pour more concrete per day and
easy to save money.

K-FORM out-performs traditional steel
shuttering in nearly every aspect of
application and can be used in a great many
locations (such as petrol forecourts) where
steel shuttering cannot.

K-FORM is ideal for concrete slabs of 150mm to 200mm. The 135mm
section is simply bedded down on a lean mix or mortar to the required
finished height:

1.   Lay down your string line
2.   Cut the first top strip in half and attach to the first shutter. Fit end-clip.
3.   Place spots of bedding mortar on the sub-base at intervals of 800mm to correspond            With K-FORM’s removable top strip
                                                                                           there is no need to diamond cut joints for
     with the holes in the base.
4.   Place the shutter on the mortar and gently tap down with a rubber mallet until the

     top of the wear strip is at the desired level.
     Place more bedding mortar as above for next shutter.
     Join the second shutter to the first with the end-clip.
     Fit the full length of the top strip across shutters.
     Tap down the shutter as above.
9.   Each 3m K-FORM beam has pre-drilled 24mm holes for steel dowel bars.
10. Once the bedding mortar has cured, you can start pouring concrete.
11. K-FORM stays in place, therefore adjoining bays can be poured one after the other.
12. When the concrete has cured, the top strip can either be left in place or removed.    With K-FORM you can pour more concrete:
     The gap can subsequently be filled with a joint sealant.                                          Just set out your shuttering
                                                                                                           and pour bay after bay.
