Construction companies indulge in various complex processes while building a structure. The amount of effort that goes in constructing a single framework is huge. These companies make use of various equipment while the process of construction is conducted. And one of the main apparatuses used are hydraulic heavy lifting equipment. These equipment play an important role as they primarily make processes easier and faster at the same time.
With the fast paced development happening in the construction industry, the need for hydraulic jack lifts for construction is also increasing. Companies make use of these jack lifts to carry and lift heavy loads. Making use of this tool along with other equipment has proved to be of major benefit. To be at par with competitors in the market, construction companies have increased the heavy lifting supply. This allows companies to be well prepared to undertake all kinds of construction processes and make a niche of their own.
As the increasing need of hydraulic heavy lifting equipment is in more than one process of construction, companies should make this investment considering the following benefits:
1. Simplifies Tasks
The process of construction requires multiple activities to be conducted simultaneously. That’s when these equipment comes into picture. Hydraulic heavy lifting equipment tend to make tasks easier as they require least manpower. They function according to the instructions given and complete processes faster. These equipment are mostly prefered over cranes and hoists.
2. Safe and Comfortable
The procedure of construction is a long and tedious one. Workers need to indulge in a lot of lifting and carrying of materials. To make things easier, these equipment are preferred as they are considered to be a more safer and comfortable option for workers to use. A major section of these equipment focus on making the work of workers simpler and when used appropriately, they prove to be the safest option.
3. Cost Efficient
Construction equipments are an expensive investment to make. Companies are compelled to buy costly equipments because they are the primary need. By investing in hydraulic heavy lifting equipment, companies can be rest assured that every penny spent is to put to appropriate use. The longevity that these equipment serve is worth the investment made. These equipment are considered cost efficient because they can be used for multiple processes.
4. Damage Prevention
The way hydraulic heavy lifting equipment are designed enable least damage of materials. These equipment when used appropriately with due precautions prove to be an investment that has many advantages to provide. Besides preventing damage while the process of construction, they also minimize user risk while servicing and repairing
5. Minimal Space Required
Unlike other construction equipment, hydraulic heavy lifting equipment require minimal space. Since these equipment are compact and easy to carry, fitting them in restricted areas is simpler. The add on advantage of these equipment is, they can be put to use instead of equipment that require more space, thus acting as a perfect replacement.
Companies now need to weigh the mentioned benefits and more and invest in hydraulic heavy lifting equipment. These will only make their processes simpler and enable them to grow faster.

Thanks to the advancement in technology, the construction industry is evolving continuously. Right from introducing new methods for construction of different structures to using machines that minimize the risk of danger, this industry has come a long way. The use of horizontal formwork systems is one such discovery that has high demand in the industry today. The following blog focuses on the meaning, types, need and benefits of using this type of formwork systems for construction. Keep reading to know more.
What is a formwork system?
The use of concrete for construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures has increased tremendously. This is because concrete is considered to be the most suitable for construction. Along with this, it has the capability to withstand fire and ensure protection against extreme temperatures. This is when a formwork system comes into the picture. This is a system which is used for storing and holding wet concrete until curing is achieved. Curing is one of the processes in concrete construction.
Types of formwork systems
The type of formwork system which is being used for construction depends on material and type of structural element. For example, a formwork that makes use of the slab will be called slab formwork. Similarly with beam formwork, column formwork and others. A good formwork should satisfy the parameters mentioned below:
- Strong enough to withstand all types of loads
- Rigidly constructed and efficiently propped to retain its shape
- Set accurately to the desired line
- Light and sturdy
- Should rest on a firm base
Whether its slipform formwork or any other, businesses need to select a suitable type, based on the type of construction (The Constructor, TYPES OF FORMWORK (SHUTTERING) FOR CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION AND ITS PROPERTIES, 2018). Out of the various systems available today, the one which is mostly used is the horizontal system of formwork. The following points tell you why:
Horizontal formwork systems
Due to the advancement in the field of formwork, new types of materials are entering the market. Many businesses are preferring smaller and lightweight formwork systems for construction. This type of systems is generally made of fibreglass, aluminium and steel. These types of materials are used for horizontal formwork systems.
This type of a system usually consists of a series of interconnected falsework bays and decking panels which are pre-formed. These are the ones that are usually used for slab construction. The lightweight of these materials makes it an ideal choice for horizontal systems as compared to the traditional ones. Another major advantage of this system is that is its safety. This is mainly because construction workers do not have to work at a height.
These are a few pointers that give a brief overview of horizontal systems for heavy formwork transportation and others. Businesses should contact reputed constructing companies for a detailed understanding of these systems and help in selecting a suitable one.
