In wall mantling, the suitable formwork is chosen based on the wall features, operation conditions and the client preferences. Some of these features are: the height of pouring concrete in each level, the possibility of operating one or two-sided wall, existence of curvature in the wall plan, being either a vertical or an angled wall.

After determining the above features, the suitable mantling system is recommended to the client and then the client’s preferred formwork gets manufactured. In order to make the mantling system financially efficient, modular formworks are used wherever possible, therefore, the concrete surface is not exposed in these formworks and this mantling systems are not recommended where the quality of the finished concrete surface is required.
