  • EFCO LITE Windmill Column

    Windmill Design

    With the windmill design, one set of forms can form column sizes in 2" increments. An architectural 3/4" column corner chamfer can be easily formed. The unique design of EFCO's standard EFCO LITE column forms only require three bolts per 8' of corner.

    Self Squaring Column

    Bypass corners assure a leak resistant form for good concrete corners and provide a “self- squaring” system.

  • Plastic Chamfer insert on EFCO LITE

    Fishtail Chamfer Inserts

    Fishtail chamfer inserts attach easily and stay attached with flush flat-head bolts. Chamfers do not become loose parts to deal with during stripping and setting.

Customizable & Efficient Column Formwork

For high-rise buildings, the EFCO LITE® system can be customized to meet the needs for specific requirements. Repetitious columns with intersecting spandrel beams can be formed very efficiently. EFCO LITE® custom column and beam applications include apartment buildings, office complexes, and high-rise hotels.
