GCI’s manhole forms are designed for ease of production by reducing time to pour and strip the product. These economical form sets are manufactured to achieve flexibility and ensures reproducibility. The specifications and dimensions of the forms can be custom made to suite your production needs.
The jacket is made in two halves and mounted on a sturdy base by means of a guide system. The operation of jacket can be automated by introducing hydraulics. The core is collapsible to ensure smooth and easy removal of the product from the form. These forms can range in size from 48” to 120”. Our design team takes the ergonomic aspect into consideration to make the use of these molds as safe as possible.
Precise and high surface finish joint rings come with the forms made according to your requirements. All joints are made according to the NPCA guidelines namely, tongue and groove, confined groove and single offset.
