Precast Forming

Western's aluminum forming systems provide precasters with flexible, first-quality equipment at a small initial cost.  To start, precasters can buy the minimum equipment to make a few high-value products.  Because of the system's modularity, adding more pieces later expands the range of items that can be produced.  All Western forming systems are of highest quality for great smooth finishes and industry-leading labor productivity.  With proper form care Western Forms contractors have used the systems for over 3,000 pours.

These photos show how the inside forms easily set for box inside and outside forms set for box outside.

The three-foot wide aluminum forms are lightweight and easy for one person to hand set. This increases production and reduces overhead.Western Forms builds only the most durable panels with industry-best materials for everyday rugged use and years of dependable service.

  

Concrete contractors set-up and pour on-site or inside using the Flagship aluminum forming system family, along with the Westerns patented PinLockTM Attached Hardware System. These systems are designed and proven to provide outstanding labor efficiency and productivity. Only Western Forms offer the patented preseasoning process known as Pan-L-Cure that shortens the break-in period required with other aluminum forms.

These modular systems are designed for easy stacking and flexible filler combinations. The forms are available from 1’ to 10’ heights in one-foot increments and in widths of 1” to 36” in one-inch increments. Special forms are also available to suit custom precast applications.

    

Many contractors successfully set-up and pour precast structures indoors and deliver a diverse variety of structures year-round.
