Circular Formwork

Because of the unique structure and specifications of curved walls and circular columns, they require an appropriate concrete formwork system for maximum efficiency and the best possible results. At MEVA, we offer circular formwork systems that are flexible and easy to use and assemble. Our products are designed and manufactured to meet your specific needs, allowing you to minimise your overall project duration, costs and labour. If you are looking to produce curved or circular concrete structures with superior-quality surfaces every time, you can’t go wrong with MEVA’s circular formwork systems.

Formwork Systems for Curved and Circular Concrete Structures

Certain architectural and infrastructure projects, such as dams, car park ramps and septic tanks, require the construction of curved walls. To enable builders to complete these projects successfully, different types of circular formwork systems are available.

Circular Formwork created with MBS girder system

Round girder formwork

With this type of formwork system, timber spacers are placed between the timber girders and steel walers. In this way, you can adjust the formwork to the required radius. Round girder formwork is best suited to the construction of multiple concrete structures with identical radii.

Flexible girder formwork

Flexible girder formwork consists of timber/steel girders and a spindle that will enable you to adjust the formwork to meet your project’s specifications without having to reassemble the panels. As a result, this formwork system is ideal for projects that require curved walls with different radii. In most cases, flexible girder formwork is pre-assembled in a “flat” condition before being transported and adjusted onsite.

Polygonal formwork

Polygonal formwork comprises “flat” frame formwork panels that have been repurposed by adding supplementary radius panels and rails. This is why this circular formwork is also sometimes known as frame formwork. Polygonal formwork provides builders with a cost-effective solution when building curved walls. They can be transformed from existing frame formwork systems into polygonal wall formwork by simply adding several accessories.

Circular column formwork

Besides curved walls, some infrastructure projects may require circular columns, especially when constructing piling or elevations of buildings, bridge pillars, and areas where the movement of people should not be hindered. Generally speaking, steel or aluminum circular column formwork systems are used to build circular columns as they are available in incremental dimensions and can be easily adjusted to match a column’s dimensions.

MAR (MEVA Adjustable Radius) circular formwork

Ideal for the construction of water and sewage treatment systems, the MAR is the formwork solution you need if you want to complete your project quickly and efficiently. One of the hallmarks of this circular formwork system is that it has significantly fewer and simpler parts to assemble than most circular forms available today. This feature allows you to set up the MAR on the construction site with less time and effort. In addition, because we always want to make your site more efficient, we can pre-assemble the MAR with your preferred radius preset for initial use as part of our additional service.

As with the rest of our product offerings, including our slab formwork and foundation formwork, the MAR features our trademark intelligent MEVA design for optimum functionality and ease of use. This formwork system can withstand pour pressures from 1,000 to 1,500 psf. It also has an adjustable waler that can accommodate a wide range of radii and can be easily modified onsite for future concrete pours to help you save time, money, and labor.

The MAR comes with gangs weighing 10–12 lbs per square foot and in widths of 8’, allowing you to transport this circular formwork system quickly and effortlessly. Gangs can also be made with your choice of HDO, MDO, or birch facing. Finally, the MAR is compatible with Imperial, MevaLite, and other MEVA formwork accessories.
