Jumpform construction is a more economical choice as the form can be set up and ready to make the first pour of concrete within a week. Due to an incremental schedule rather than the continuous schedule, costs are reduced approximately 20% over Slipform construction. Silos from 10' to 65' in diameter can be built using this technique.
The Jumpform framework is reusable and takes just a few days to set up after delivery to the job site. Once set up, the form provides a safe, circular deck used to access and erect the silo from the interior, allowing a smaller job site. When construction is finished, the form is quickly removed from the job site.
Marietta Silos' standard horizontal construction joint detail creates a leak-proof joint system.
Jumpform construction is the better choice for silos less than 65’ in diameter, and Marietta Silos is the only Jumpform manufacturer in the country that complies with OSHA 125' scaffolding requirements.
