Pocket Formers

Custom Made Pocket Formers

MasterForm offers a comprehensive range of pocket formers. Our pocket formers are manufactured and engineered to create either a vertical or horizontal pocket in the concrete slab, some of which are designed to be reusable and others designed for cast-in applications.

These pocket formers are generally made from carbon steel and can be reused when required. They offer a cost-effective method to form pockets at the perimeter of a concrete slab where Unistrut is required for a curtain wall system. We shop draw and manufacture customised pocket formers that are catered to your specific project requirements including corner pockets.


Made To Your Specifications

We understand that different customers have different requirements, and as such we can make our pocket formers to suit your needs. They can be supplied as a standalone product or be incorporated with other products, such as the MasterForm Easy Edge.

Our pocket formers are extremely quick to install and accurate to use, making them ideal for any worksite. They are much cleaner and more environmentally friendly than foam block-outs are.
