Cast-in-place concrete walls are one of the most common ways to erect concrete, especially when it comes to building up basement walls for commercial structures.
Because of the strong walls and cost-effective building technology they result in, cast-in-place solutions for concrete formliners are commonly recommended and used by Scott System for many different projects.
To implement cast-in-place concrete solutions, mixed concrete is placed into removable forms and erected at the construction site. This process is preferred for projects like concrete slabs, foundations, beams, columns, walls, and roofs since these types of structures can easily be reinforced with the cast-in-place construction process.
Benefits of Cast-In-Place Concrete
The main benefits of this type of concrete construction is its high level of strength. It is normally used for basement walls and home foundations but can also be used on much larger scale operations. It is also resistant to structural damage in the event of natural disasters.
Cast-in-place concrete provides a high degree of insulation. For example, in most homes it prevents the basement from taking on the cold temperatures and moisture from the ground around them. It insulates from noise as well as insects, mold, and mildew.
Builders can use this method of concrete construction for a wide variety of architectural projects. With Scott System’s Flex-Liner™ Urethane Formliners, architects have the ability to turn normal structures into pieces of art with a variety of formliner textures.
