Formwork Tie Rod
A formwork tie rod is a vital construction component used in concrete formwork. Typically made of steel, it's threaded on both ends and used to hold formwork panels together. By connecting these panels, the tie rod maintains the desired shape and structure during concrete pouring. Wing nuts and washers are often used with tie rods to secure the formwork firmly in place. This system ensures that concrete cures properly, resulting in a sturdy and well-formed structure. Formwork tie rods are integral to the construction process, providing stability and strength to various concrete projects, from walls to columns and beyond.
