Windoor is a revolutionary aluminium formwork manufacturing company for forming cast in place reinforced concrete building structures. Using this unique system, all walls, floor slabs, columns, beams, stairs, balconies, together with door and window openings are cast in place in a single site based operation. The resulting building structure is very strong, accurate in dimensions and tolerances, with a high quality of finished concrete surface and yet at the same time the aluminium formwork is fast, adaptable and very cost effective.
Unlike other construction systems, the Windoor formwork can be erected by skilled labour and without the need for hoisting cranes. The largest panel weighs no more than 25 kilograms which means it can be handled by a single worker. The panels and other sections are secured and fixed by steel pins and wedges with spacer ties. The only tool required is a hammer.
Normally one "set" of aluminum formwork system for a typical project / building would consist of several thousand individual pieces of aluminium sections which will be connected together and produce a "mould" for concrete pouring to cast the various structural components of the building. The Aluminum Formworks can be used upto 150-200 times.
With its lightweight and a highly efficient work schedule, a Windoor formwork can construct a building at the rate of 4 to 5 days per floor as compared to 10 to 15 days per floor for conventional systems.
Windoor Aluminum Formwork System Vs Conventional System
Traditionally, timber and plywood were used as formworks for the construction of concrete structures. It is still the most widely used medium as it is the most versatile since they can form the most intricate shapes and forms of the structures. However, it needs many skilled and unskilled workers besides being very time consuming. In today's competitive market, speed, quality and efficiency is of primary importance.
In view of this, many various construction systems in steel have been in use over years. However, all these systems are not "complete" systems, in that they are able to form only parts of the building structures such as the walls/ column/ beam/ lift core, etc. , none is capable of producing complete floor/ structure in single pour.
With introduction of the Windoor FormworkFormwork System you can cast a complete floor including walls, floor slabs, balconies, staircases, lift shafts, window hoods, as well as columns and beams.
