Best Practice Guide for foundations built with Pecafil® permanent formwork

Foundation quality is often dependent on the correct application of the formwork used. This guide shows how to avoid poor quality foundations.

Building on rock has always been good advice – but what if there is no rock? The solution is to use good quality concrete foundations, achieved with the appropriate formwork.

This Best Practice Guide sets out a minimum standard for foundation formwork and shows its practical application.

The main focus is on:

  • Preventing high deflection due to backfill pressure
  • Choosing the right spacers and ensuring they are used in the correct pattern
  • Preventing honeycombing and reduced concrete cover zone

For checking practically on site, we have prepared a quality checklist that makes control easy and efficient.
