Kickerless Construction

Kickerless construction for positioning vertical formwork off a slab has the following advantages over the construction of a traditional kicker against which the vertical forms are clamped:

  • faster,
  • requires less labour,
  • better workmanship,
  • cleaner lines at slab interface
  • lower costs.

There are a number of different proprietary methods available.
