Stripping begins by removing all form ties and anchor-positioning bolts. The form panel with its strongbacks is then pulled away from the wall by tilting or rolling (Figure 6.10). Tilting is accomplished by releasing the wall brace, while rolling is accomplished by rollers. It should be noted that the compression brace is used for both
exact adjustment (plumbing) of the form elements as well as for form removal. Stripping allows the inserts to be accessible from the upper level platform. The jump shoes are then positioned and attached for the next lift.
Additional walls or form cleaning, oiling, and repair can be performed from the walkway platform and the lower working platform.
