Access Shafts

Shafts are an essential part of the support and supply system for the work flow underground. Vent shafts carry an adequate supply of fresh air while access and equipment shafts supply workers and material. Whether concreting from the bottom up or from the top down, EVEREST shaft forms can save your operation time and money. They will provide concrete permanence and stability to newly excavated shaft walls.

When concreting from the bottom up, EVEREST custom shaft forms are moved safely and efficiently from one pour to another as the shaft lining is extended upward. Once the key panel is pulled free from the wall, the form is stripped and raised to the next pour level. EVEREST hanging work platforms can be lowered right onto the center of the form to give your workers direct access to the formwork. They are designed and manufactured with maximum safety and maneuverability in mind.

As in the mining industry where blasting, mucking and lining work must be carried on simultaneously from the top down, EVEREST can provide you with our dependable blast proof forms.

Whatever your vertical lining application, EVEREST formwork and equipment will help you meet your deadlines safely and economically.
