Limitations of Gang Formwork
1. The major limitation of gang formwork is that before moving gang forms vertically or horizontally to the next pouring position, they have to be brought down to the ground for cleaning and oiling. This process substantially increases the cycle time between two lifts.
2. Gang forms are not suitable for small walls or walls interrupted by pilasters or counterforts.
3. Because of their large sizes, safety is a major concern when moving ganged forms.
