One - Sided Systems

One-sided formwork systems can be used in a number of different situations. They work well for retaining walls where lots of support is needed on one side. One-sided formwork systems transfer forces into embedded anchor systems unlike anchor rods with curtain systems. In essence, one-sided formwork systems can self-support and adding extra sections removes any height limitations.
