Wall Formwork

Imperial

Heavy-duty wall formwork for any job

The best formwork solution for your largest jobs

With standardized system components and easy-to-use and efficient accessories, Imperial wall formwork combines all the features that make MEVA systems the best solution for a wide variety of job site applications.

Designed for lateral concrete pressure of up to 2,025psf/ft² and offering panel sizes up to 12’ high and 8’ wide, Imperial wall formwork is ideal for tall and thick walls. Available in four heights and eight widths, the symmetrical panels can be combined vertically and horizontally with assembly locks that can be attached anywhere on the frame, making it possible to pour any wall geometry. Areas needing fillers are kept to a minimum, saving labour and time.

Whether on sloping ground, single-sided and backed by STB support frames, or placed on KLK or MGC climbing platforms to pour cores, Imperial can take it on.
