Rib Loc column forms are made by spirally winding a ribbed PVC profile into tube. This enables column forms to be constructed which are strong ,lightweight, easy to strip and which privide a superior surface finish.

The lightweight nature of Rib Loc (450mm Ø weighs less than 3kg per meter) means that installation and handing is much easier than other types of column forms.

Rib Loc also provide improved surface finish with only minimal evidence that the form has been spirally wound. The surface also incorporates the inherent " Waxiness" of extruded PVC thus no form oil is required.

To appreciate the real savings of Rib Loc forms, attention needs to be focused on more than the initial purchase price. Reductions in crane use, installation lobour and stripping time mean that substantial total cost savings can be achieved by using Rib Loc forms.
