First, to save money! Steel forms will pay for themselves quickly. dee Concrete steel forms are ~75% cheaper to use than wood based on the replacement cost of wood forms only and their necessary maintenance.
Second, to get a more consistent concrete forming job done every time.
Third, the use of steel forms for concrete placement is easier and requires less training than a crew using wood forms.
Fourth, steel forms are safer to work with so you will reduce lost workdays due to injuries.
Fifth...well,actually there are a lot more - talk to your local dee distributor!
