Introduction Formstrong understands formwork. We understand a contractor’s need toerect quality formwork on time safely and with high standards of quality time, quality.Formstrong aims to deliver high quality formwork fast and safe, using the innovativeKwik StrongDeck system and StrongBrace systems. Our management team has extensive experience across not only formwork,but also other aspects of the construction industry and corporate and developmentsectors. Because we understand the construction and development industries, weunderstand the imperatives that drive our clients businesses. This helps us deliverbetter service to you. Formstrong uses the Kwik StrongDeck system panel system an innovative system,patented system that allows us to deliver a project’s formwork in record time withmuch greater efficiency than traditional timber formwork systems. We combine this with the StrongBrace system to provide the bracing andstability for the Kwik StrongDeck system system. Formstrong’s use of the Kwik StrongDeck system and StrongBrace systemsgives a contractor the edge in formwork delivery. In turn, that gives you the edge inoverall project delivery.
Kwik StrongDeck systemKwik StrongDeck system gives you the edge. In a nutshell, the KwikStrongDeck system is:•safer,•faster•more efficient,•less wasteful, l f lwhen compared to traditional timber and plywood systems.The system has been extensively tested for strength and serviceability toconfirm that it is structurally capable of withstanding any conditions y p g yfound on construction sites.
SaferWorkers erect the Kwik StrongDeck system from the ground. The risk of falling from aheight is i i i d Panels are systematically lift d and propped fh i ht i minimized. P l t ti ll lifted d d from b l below. ThTheFormwork Code of Practice in Australia requires workers not to work at more than 1.8mabove ‘ground’. Working from a previously poured deck ensures adherence to the code andsafer conditions for workers.FasterKwik StrongDeck system is quick. 47% quicker on average based on our research. Look atthe comparison:More efficient3 trained workers from formstrong can erect 10 m2 of formwork very quickly. The modularsystem reduces labour requirements, a major advantage where skilled labour is scarce.And because it is a modular system, the skilled trade component required to erect theKwik StrongDeck system is 30% of the labour component, compared to 70% for traditionaltimber systems who rely heavily on a large proportion of skilled carpenters.Eliminates wasteful use of timberThe Kwik StrongDeck system eliminates the use of timber and plywood in formworkoperations reducing the wasteful use of natural resources inherent in traditional timbersystems.

StrongBrace system StrongBrace works hand in hand with Kwik StrongDeck system.It b braces and stabilizes th K ik St d t bili the Kwik StrongDeck system panels, allowing 10 D k t l ll i 10mhigh decks to be erected without difficulty. And because it is used with itsown formwork hoists, there is no need to use site cranes. Formstrong is self-sufficient in this regard. The erection of our formwork is not dependent oncrane availability e.g. due to wind condition.
