9 Texas Congressmen Press Texas Association of School Boards to Leave National Organization

The National School Board Association (NSBA) made headlines last month following their letter to President Joe Biden and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting federal intervention in local school board meetings and referring to concerned parents as “domestic terrorists.”

Now, nine Republican congressmen from Texas are calling on Texas’ chapter to leave the national organization.

Unlike the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), 12 states (Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin) have already revoked their membership, participation, or dues from the NSBA.

This week, U.S. Reps. Chip Roy, Louie Gohmert, Van Taylor, Ronny Jackson, Beth Van Duyne, Randy Weber, Roger Williams, Lance Gooden, and Pete Sessions wrote their own letter to TASB, questioning the board’s continued membership in the NSBA.

In their letter, the representatives heavily criticize the NSBA’s recent actions, stating their letter and request for federal involvement “was clearly intended to intimidate parents into silence, threatening them for defending their values and children’s educational interest.”

Since the NSBA’s original letter, the organization has issued an apology and acknowledged that some of their language was unjustifiable. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland was recently questioned by Congress regarding the actions his office took following the NSBA’s request for intervention where he denied taking action against parents.

However, a whistleblower recently released information “showing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Counterterrorism Division has been compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents, including by directing FBI personnel to a specific ‘threat tag’ to track potential investigations,” per the representatives’ letter to TASB.

Since this information has become public, the representatives have three questions for the TASB:

  1. To what extent did TASB know about the September 29 NSBA letter, and when?
  2. Does TASB agree with NSBA’s decision to call on federal law enforcement to target parents?
  3. If not, did any TASB member communicate their disagreement with this decision to NSBA?

According to the representatives’ letter, “Organizations representing Texas’ education should unequivocally support parents and their involvement in the children’s education and not remain affiliated with national organizations that display otherwise.

U.S. Rep. Van Duyne has also called out AG Garland for lying to Congress regarding the utilization of the FBI to target parents.

AG Garland told Congress when he testified under oath, parents protesting school board meetings aren’t being targeted by the FBI. He lied. The allegations show parents are being treated like terrorists. He broke the law & there need to be consequences. https://t.co/5zSXRh0JtK

— Beth Van Duyne (@Bethvanduyne) November 17, 2021

The original NSBA letter created a firestorm of angered parents, and as new information arises regarding education administrators’ true thoughts toward concerned parents, the issue continues to evolve.

Indeed, Biden’s Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said that parents are not the primary stakeholders in their children’s education.

TASB has not yet offered a response.

The 6 Most Effective Social Media Advertising Platforms in 2021

Amid constant adjustments to social media algorithms and search engine rankings, it can feel near impossible to get your content noticed. While organic search is the free and perhaps more comfortable option, the chances of going viral without putting some money on the table are slim.  

Although earned and owned media hold their own marketing value, paid social advertising is the surest way to bring in traffic and sales from day one. As of 2021, 75% of Gen Zers and 48% of millennials are making purchasing decisions influenced by social media ads, and in 2020, social media ad spend in the US was valued at $40.3 billion.

Whether you’re a big or small business owner, social media advertising is a must, especially if you want to stand out from the crowd, gain content views and drive more sales. 

What is Social Media Advertising?

Social media advertising, or social media targeting, are advertisements served to users on social media platforms.

Social networks utilize user information to serve highly relevant advertisements based on interactions within a specific platform. In many instances, when the target market aligns with the user demographics of a social platform, social advertising can provide huge increases in conversions and sales with lower cost of acquisition.

In this blog post, we’ll cover all the ins and outs of social media advertising, from managing a campaign to different types of ads, as well as practical examples of how to put them into practice. 

How to Manage Your Social Media Advertising Campaign

1. Run your ad campaigns manually.

Out of the three ways to manage a campaign, running it manually is going to be your cheapest option — and the simplest. All you have to do is choose an advertising platform and set up your campaign. 

Pros 

Running an ad campaign manually gives you the freedom to invest 100% of your budget into testing out ads and finding the best ones, rather than spending extra money on ad management tools or agency fees. 

Plus, taking charge of your own campaigns will inevitably allow you to develop an eye for advertising so that you can learn and improve your campaigns in the future. Instead of letting someone else do the work, you can become an expert yourself and be able to speak the language, even if you do end up hiring outside advertisers down the road.

Cons 

Of course, becoming an advertising expert takes time and commitment, which means that the more time you invest in advertising is lost time in other areas of your business. Especially if you are a business owner, spending hours on end mastering advertising might not be conducive to a busy work schedule.

And just because you invest a lot of time in becoming an advertising expert does not mean that your ads will be successful. Especially if you’re just stepping into the advertising world, it may be a gamble to invest all that time and risk not getting the results you want. 

Who it’s ideal for 

If you’re operating on a tight budget and simply don’t have the means to hire an advertising agency, running your campaigns manually is your best bet — but unless you’re already a seasoned advertiser, you need to be willing to put in the time and effort to learn.  

However, if you don’t have the money or the time, there is a second option that might be more suitable.

2. Run your ad campaigns via automated software.

Considering social media ad spending is expected to reach $153,974 million in 2021, it’s no wonder there’s a plethora of third-party tools to help you manage your campaigns. 

Pros 

Sometimes on-site ad managers aren’t the most user-friendly, but third-party tools like AdEspresso or Revealbot can make optimizing Facebook ad campaigns and analyzing results much simpler than using Facebook’s Ad Manager.

Or, you can even use automated tools like Adext, which uses AI to manage the entire campaign. This way you can focus on other areas of your business while the platform does the rest.    

With so many tools on the market, you’ll be able to save time, optimize campaigns and ensure that their money is going toward ads that will actually turn into sales.

Cons 

Although third-party tools are often relatively affordable, they are still an additional cost to consider. 

And just like manually running your own ad campaign, automated software still poses the risk of spending the money but not getting the results you want. Plus, since you aren’t controlling the entire campaign process, it might be more difficult to identify where the ads manager is falling short.   

Who it’s ideal for 

For merchants who are working on a tight budget but also don’t have the time to invest in running their own campaigns, using third-party tools is the happy medium.  

Creating a successful campaign is definitely achievable with automated software and minimal invested time, and for business owners with limited resources, this is likely the best option. However, for those who have the budget and want the best ad campaign possible, the easiest option is to turn to the professionals. 

3. Hire a managed service to run your ad campaigns.

While this last option is often the most expensive, it’s also the simplest and will likely reap the most benefits. Rather than relying on your own expertise or automated software, hiring a professional is the most reliable option for achieving the results you want. 

Pros 

Of course, the most obvious advantage of hiring an advertising professional is that they know what they’re doing — it’s their job. As a result, the chances of you getting your desired results are much higher. 

Plus, hiring a managed service means there’s zero work on your part, so you can invest time and energy into other areas of your business that need more focus. 

So, although you’d be paying a fee and ad spend, the hope is that your advertising will turn into consistent sales and keep you net positive.  

Cons 

The one downside to hiring an ad agency is that if you don’t hire a good ad agency, you could end up wasting a lot of money.  

Unfortunately, some agencies are only self-proclaimed experts who lure customers into wasting their money, so make sure you do your research and only hire trustworthy professionals.  

Who it’s ideal for 

For those who have the budget to spend and are eager for immediate sales, hiring a managed service is the most ideal solution. And since social media advertising is easily measurable, if your ads aren’t performing up to your standards, then you know exactly who is responsible, and you can always hire a new and better agency.  

5 Steps to Build a Creative Social Media Advertising Strategy

1. Determine what to sell.

If your ecommerce business only produces and sells one product, or if you already have an obvious bestseller, you can skip this step.

However, if your business has a larger product catalog, you’ll need to identify which of your products are most valuable and therefore should be central to your advertising efforts.  

Below is a helpful diagram that can help you calculate your gross profit per SKU to determine which of your products hold the highest value.

Once you calculate each of your products’ value, you can determine which ones are generating high profits but are underrepresented in the ad account and adjust accordingly. While you can create a good advertisement for an average-selling product, featuring a bestselling product will likely result in more conversions and sales.

2. Research your audience.

Ultimately, the customer is not just purchasing the physical product itself, but more importantly, what the product can do for them. In fact, Common Thread Collective identifies three levels of product problems: 

  1. Physical: The product itself.
  2. Functional: What the product does for the customer.
  3. Identity: How the product makes the customer feel.

Therefore, before trying to sell to your audience, you first have to understand who they are and what they want. But knowing the functional purpose of your product and what your customers actually want isn’t always black and white.

Here are a few tips to help answer these questions. 

First, read reviews! Whether positive or negative, customer reviews are valuable insights to what your customers want and how they actually view your product. These reviews can come from your online store, blogs, YouTube videos or Reddit posts. 

Take time to read through them — they’ll either provide reassurance that your business is on the right track, or they’ll give you insights about how to shift directions.   

Second, utilize Google Trends and keyword searches to help understand how customers are thinking about different products and/or topics. 

All you have to do is type in a word or phrase, and the “related queries” section will highlight which regions hold the highest search volume for that term, as well as related topics and queries, which open up avenues that could hold potential for your business.   

Lastly, search for related hashtags on your brand’s social networks — this could be a great opportunity to find organic search for your products. 

 3. Use a creative platform.

While the genesis of social media has opened the door to so many new opportunities for digital advertising, you have to face the fact that all social platforms have their own limitations. Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook — all of them. 

But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get creative within those limitations. There’s a world of possibilities for social media advertising, but, of course, social platforms are much different from television and magazines, so you’ll need to keep in mind a few limitations. 

You have less time to grab the audience’s attention.

In a world of endless scrolling and short-form videos, it’s no wonder that Facebook users spend, on average, only 1.7 seconds with a piece of mobile content. 

Therefore, marketers have less and less time to capture customers’ attention before they end up scrolling to the next thing. And the way to do this is by rejecting the traditional TV story arc — rising action, climax, falling action — and instead embracing an emerging story arc, which starts with the climax. By doing so, your ads can hook customers from the beginning and seamlessly lead them to a call-to-action. 

Your product should be the star of the show. 

While there is value in lifestyle product photography and ads, at the end of the day, the goal is to sell a product, so it should be your main focal point. Don’t focus too much on the models, the actors or all the fluff that goes into making ads — instead, focus on capturing the product itself and allowing it to shine on its own.

Create ads for mobile. 

Considering over 98% of Facebook users access the app via a mobile device, it’s vital that your ads aren’t only made to fit a 16-by-9 TV or desktop screen — they need to be adjusted for mobile use, too. 

Not only should your ads physically fit on a mobile screen, but they also need to be designed with the mobile user in mind. This means legible branding, large and clear text, eye-catching graphics and interactivity whenever possible. 

4. Create a digital marketing campaign.

Now that you know your product, audience and platform, it’s time to start putting the pieces into action. 

Not sure where to start? Here are four steps to get you on your way to building a successful digital marketing campaign.

Define your goals.

Although it might be an obvious first step, setting clear and reachable goals is a vital foundation for creating a successful campaign. It can be easy to jump into a campaign with lots of vision and ambition, but if you don’t have a focused approach, these ambitions may fall short. Whether it’s brand awareness, more social media followers or a higher SEO ranking, make sure you have a definable goal in mind that can guide you in your decisions throughout the process. 

Identify your target audience.

Although we already touched on this, it’s worth saying again: know your audience! The more you understand who your customers are and what they want, the better you’ll be able to refine your advertising to better meet their needs.  

Create customer personas.

This goes along with the previous step, but here is where you’ll go a bit more in depth. A customer persona is a detailed description of your target customer, which highlights their demographics such as age, location, occupation, income and other details that may influence the way they make purchase decisions. 

Determine your budget. 

While this might not be the most fun part, assessing your budget is key to determining what your limitations are and how you should be allocating your resources. Luckily, social media marketing is generally less expensive than traditional marketing, so your investments in digital will often give you more bang for your buck.

5. Improve your performance.

Return on advertising spend (ROAS) can clue you in to whether your ads are working, but they can’t tell you why if they aren’t. 

In the end, the goal of social media advertising is to drive traffic and gain more sales. But before a customer hits the “Complete Purchase” button, there are several steps they have to move through to get there — and as a marketer, it’s your job to make sure they do.

To help understand how customers experience advertisements and content, you can use the AIDA system, which stands for attention, interest, desire and action.

Designed in 1898 by ad executive E. St. Elmo Lewis, AIDA is a behavioral model that highlights the four effects an ad should produce in a customer. Below is a great visual that details each of these effects and what they look like in practice. 

Types of Social Media Marketing 

Gone are the days of billboards and magazines being the only advertising mediums. As the world of content and digital marketing grows, there is a buffet of advertising options to choose from, each holding its own unique strengths and limitations. Here we’ll highlight some of the most common types of ads and how they can add value to your campaign.  

1. Photo ads. 

Likely the most familiar type of ad, you’ll often see photo ads strewn across news feeds, sidebars and banners. They’re a bit simpler to create than other ads like videos and stories, but you’ll need to make sure that your photos are high-quality. For instance, Sprout Social recommends 1080×1080 pixels for Instagram image and carousel ads.

Photo ads are great for building brand awareness, since they place your product right in front of the customer. Just make sure that your images are consistent in style with your posts and stories so that users immediately associate the ad with your brand.

And of course, photo ads are effective in bringing traffic to your website. In fact, a Facebook study found that a series of photo-only ads outperformed other ad formats in bringing unique traffic. 

Unlike organic posts, photo ads​​ may include a call-to-action button like “Shop Now” or “Download,” which helps create a seamless purchase experience for the customer.  

2. Video ads. 

According to Vidyard, over half of all social media users will watch a full video if it is under one minute long, and the longer the video is, the smaller this percentage becomes. 

This means that you only have a short length of time to reel in a user and keep them hooked. Luckily, platforms like Instagram and Facebook allow you to create short, looping video ads that users can quickly view and interact with while scrolling through their feed.

However, if you have a compelling message and the resources to do so, you can also opt for longer video content, like this video from Cordova Outdoors.  

3. Stories ads. 

According to a study by Instagram Business, half of the users surveyed said they visited a website to purchase a product or service as a result of viewing it on a Stories ad. And considering Instagram has 1 billion active users, this is a huge opportunity for you to make your brand known.  

If you’re advertising on Facebook Stories, a photo can be viewed for six seconds, while a video can play for up to 15 seconds. On the other hand, Instagram Stories ads can be up to 120 seconds long, whether you’re using photos or videos. On both platforms, Stories ads display in full-screen format, allowing your product to be in full focus as long as you have your customer’s attention. 

4. Messenger ads.

No, social media ads don’t have to only appear in a user’s news feed! Facebook Messenger ads, unlike photo, video and Story ads, are displayed between conversations in a user’s Chats tab in Messenger. Potential customers can click on the ad to begin an automated conversation through Messenger, or the ad can link them to your website to browse products.

Social Media Platforms Examples 

When deciding where to place your ads, keep in mind that each social media site holds its own unique audience — so find out where your ideal customers are and meet them there. If your target audience is in the age range of 60 and up, a social platform like TikTok probably isn’t your best option, but perhaps Facebook is. 

And if your brand is already active on social media, find out which platforms are already performing well organically — this might be a good indicator of where you should be targeting your advertising efforts. 

1. Facebook. 

As the largest social media platform in the world, it’s safe to say that Facebook is a reliable choice when deciding where to advertise. Facebook is popular among a wide variety of demographics, including gender and age (shown in a report below by Hootsuite), which means there’s a good chance your target audience is engaging with the platform, too.

Aside from allowing Facebook users to connect with one another and share content online, the platform also offers merchants the opportunity to advertise their products and services online. Among a laundry list of benefits, these are a few ways that Facebook ads can help you meet campaign goals:

  • Build brand awareness: Increase your reach and get your products in front of potential customers.
  • Consideration: Direct traffic to your website, harness lead generation through opt-in emails, blog posts and content and reach out to potential customers through Messenger.
  • Conversion: Set up a Facebook Shop to give customers a more seamless shopping experience, drive traffic to both your online and brick-and-mortar stores and increase conversion rates. 

Plus, Facebook advertising allows merchants to target customers by location (within a 5-mile radius), occupation, interests, past activity and several other valuable data points.

Pricing for Facebook ads varies depending on several factors, including the audience you’re trying to target and the budget you set for your ads. However, as a rule of thumb, the more ad spend, the more efficient Facebook’s algorithm becomes at spending your money and increasing your ad performance over time.

2. Instagram.

Known for its glossy photos and videos, Instagram is an ideal platform for brands with products that are visually appealing and easily incorporated into visual media. 

Plus, with an engagement rate 58% higher than Facebook’s and 2,000% higher than Twitter’s in 2016, Instagram holds a massive user base, although one that’s largely younger than other advertising platforms.

So, if your business and target audience fits both of those characteristics, Instagram advertising might be the best option for you. 

Although organic posts and stories can be great ways to boost traffic to your website, Instagram ads can be directly linked to your product page or another landing page, allowing for quick and easy engagement with your products.   

3. Twitter. 

As the go-to platform for discovering breaking news and engaging with small- and big-name influencers, Twitter has been one of the most popular social media channels since its launch in 2006. 

Twitter advertising offers two options for brands to create ads:

  1. Quick Promote: Twitter automatically promotes Tweets to your target audience. All you have to do is choose a promotable Tweet from your timeline and specify your target audience, and Twitter will do the rest of the work for you.
  2. Twitter Ads: These ads are objective-based, meaning you first have to choose your preferred business objective, and Twitter will only bill you for actions that align with your goal.

4. Tiktok.

Although a relatively newer player in the social advertising game, TikTok holds huge potential for reaching potential customers, especially younger audiences. 

According to eMarketer, many of TikTok’s social commerce capabilities have primarily focused on product ads which appear as native videos on users’ “For You” feeds. The ads are full-screen and appear for nine seconds, just like an organic TikTok post. Under each advertisement, users can tap the “Shop Now” button, which brings them directly to the merchant’s ecommerce site to complete their checkout. 

Besides in-feed ads, other ad options on TikTok include Brand Takeovers, which means that your ad will be displayed as soon as a user opens the app, or a Branded Hashtag Challenge, which encourages user-generated content through trending hashtags and fun video challenges, like a popular dance or creative filter.  

5. Pinterest.

Like Instagram, Pinterest is a highly visual platform, decorated with whimsical wedding photos, cooking videos and fashion reels. But with that being said, Pinterest is largely geared toward women with a 71% female user base

Considering Pinterest users intentionally use the platform to find and purchase products, Pinterest is one of the most ideal platforms for social media advertising. Promoted pins easily blend into the Pinterest boards without distracting users like some other platforms do. In fact, 85% of weekly Pinners have made a purchase based on Pins they see from brands.  

Especially beneficial for ecommerce retailers, Pinterest has a highly targeted search engine which allows brands to advertise their products by promoting their highest-performing pins. 

6. Linkedin.

As the world’s largest professional network, LinkedIn holds a large professional user base and is able to target customers based on job qualifications. Thus, LinkedIn advertising is largely geared toward a corporate audience.

Considering 69% of LinkedIn US users earn $50,000 or more per year, this platform tends to hold the highest average disposable income and high-quality leads in certain industries. 

However, unlike most other platforms, which focus on B2C advertising, the nature of LinkedIn makes it better suited to B2B advertising campaigns. So, service businesses and B2B product businesses tend to get better results on LinkedIn than other platforms. 

There are four types of LinkedIn ads:

  • Sponsored content: These ads — often through photos, videos or carousels — are displayed in LinkedIn’s newsfeed in order to reach a larger audience. 

  • Sponsored Messaging: This is LinkedIn’s version of email marketing, but rather than sending a message to the user’s inbox, it goes to their LinkedIn inbox, where the user can then interact either with a chatbot or a human customer representative. 

  • Text and Dynamic ads: Only visible to desktop users, text ads are small advertisements displayed at the top of the screen above the user’s newsfeed.

After you’ve determined your social platform and the types of ads you want to display, it’s time to put your advertising wheels in motion. To help get you started, here are five social media hacks to get more eyes on your content and start turning viewers into customers. 

1. Audience targeting.

Targeting an audience means to zone in on a select demographic, whether it be age, gender, occupation or interest — but you can’t target everyone using the same tactic. 

Using keyword search, surveying and interviewing customers and creating clear customer personas, you’ll get a better picture of who your customer is, and therefore you’ll be able to target them more accurately.  

Not only should you be targeting new and potential customers, but also make sure to retarget existing customers. This will help remind customers of your brand even if they’ve already made a purchase, and it’s much more cost-effective than advertising to potential customers. 

2. Promote on social media platforms.

This may go without saying, but a key aspect of social media advertising is upping your social media strategy. Promoting and repurposing your organic content across social media channels will help you to tell your brand story and make it stand out.

3. Paid search and social ads.

Using remarketing lists for search ads (RLSA), you can tailor your PPC search ads based on whether a customer has previously visited your online store as well as which pages they viewed. This way you can target users who are already familiar with your business. 

However, you can take this up a notch by combining paid search with social ads to target both those who know and don’t know your brand. 

By first targeting with social ads, you can build brand awareness and help customers become more familiar with your products. Then, when they see your PPC ads later on, they’ll feel more comfortable and inclined to click on your website.  

4. Improve quality score.

Quality score is a ranking metric that search engines use to indicate the quality of your keywords and PPC ads, and therefore it’s a key aspect of social media advertising. The higher your quality score, the higher your ad will rank and the more impressions it will get at a lower cost per engagement. 

By posting organically to social advertising platforms and tracking engagement with each ad, you’ll be able to pinpoint which paid ads are top-performing — these are the ones you want to promote.    

5. Optimize user engagement for SEO.

One of the key ways to bring traffic to your website and consequently drive sales is by optimizing your ad content. Among other ranking factors like keywords, page speed and mobile friendliness, one potential SEO factor is user engagement. These metrics include click-through rate (CTR), bounce rate and conversion rate, among others. 

However, even if user engagement isn’t a core ranking factor for search engines, high CTRs and conversion rate will still achieve better organic search rankings and more conversions.  

Wrapping Up 

Especially in the ecommerce landscape, social media advertising is one of the most efficient and effective ways to reach your target audience and turn them into customers. No other advertising avenue can deliver the same consistent, scalable leads as social advertising.

As more and more retailers dip their toes into social media, it’s crucial that you understand the ins and out of this advertising medium and start strengthening your own strategy. But with these tips under your belt and actionable goals to guide you through the process, you’ll be way ahead of the curve.

Media Coverage of Critical Race Theory Misses the Mark (Opinion)

The postmortems of this month’s elections have reminded us once again of just how large a shadow critical race theory has cast over K-12 schooling this past year—even though we still can’t quite seem to agree on just what it means or whether it’s even taught in schools.

Despite that epistemological uncertainty, CRT-aligned advocates like Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo have risen to educational prominence as schools adopt “anti-racist” practices designed to combat “systemic racism” and “white privilege.” Critics have argued, in turn, that the resulting practices promote toxic dogmas, violate constitutional guarantees of equal protection, and encourage students and staff to regard peers of other races with suspicion and distrust.

As this contentious dispute has played out in school boards, statehouses, and Washington, it’s attracted considerable media attention. Given that much of the public only hears about this debate through the media, it’s worth looking into just how these media accounts portray the issue.

In a new AEI report, I examined all news accounts addressing CRT published between September 2020 and August 2021 by four major newspapers (The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today) and three influential education press outlets (Education Week, The 74, and Chalkbeat). Ninety-one news articles met these criteria. For clarity’s sake, I’ll emphasize that the analysis did not include the many editorials and op-eds on the topic.

Well, it turns out that news accounts of CRT spend a lot of time discussing slavery and racism but relatively little discussing CRT, its intellectual foundations, or controversial CRT-aligned practices like race-based affinity groups or “anti-racist” instruction.

Each of the 91 articles discussed racism in some fashion. Two-thirds of mainstream-press news accounts and more than 4 in 5 education press news stories mentioned the history of race or the way history is taught in schools. Most articles mentioned slavery. And the articles routinely asserted or implied that these kinds of issues are at the heart of the CRT debate, as when The New York Times reported that the CRT debate is really about how “the legacies of slavery, segregation and Jim Crow still create an uneven playing field for Black people.”

At the same time, news articles rarely mentioned CRT’s intellectual foundations, despite the contentious claims on which it rests. As Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, two founders of the CRT movement, have explained in their book Critical Race Theory: An Introduction, “Critical race theory questions the very foundations of the liberal order, including equality theory, legal reasoning, Enlightenment rationalism, and neutral principles of constitutional law.” Yet, of the 91 articles examined, just two mentioned that CRT is skeptical of rational thought and just one that CRT is skeptical of universal values or objective knowledge. Put another way, then, one could read more than 95 percent of CRT coverage and never encounter the extraordinary claims at the heart of a raging national debate.

And, while CRT-aligned advocates have embraced controversial positions and practices in order to combat “white supremacy culture,” these rarely make it into news accounts. The use of race-based affinity groups—a practice in which schools separate students or staff by race in order to discuss charged topics and which has drawn substantial pushback—was mentioned in just 5 of 91 news accounts. That influential speakers and thinkers call for “anti-racist discrimination” or urge schools to abandon notions of “colorblindness” is scarcely mentioned, with neither of those provocative directives showing up in even a dozen of the 91 articles.

Now, let’s be clear: I appreciate that some readers endorse “anti-racist discrimination” or detest the notion of “colorblindness.” Sure. Fine. I get it. But my point is that it’s hard to comprehend the idea that these sorts of assertions aren’t newsworthy or to imagine that reporters can fairly illuminate the impassioned back-and-forth without addressing key claims being made.

In short, the media have focused on the topics that are not particularly controversial, while eliding those that are. After all, for all the times that the media have suggested that the debate is really about whether schools should teach about racism and slavery, national polling shows that more than 4 in 5 Republicans and Democrats alike say that social studies textbooks should discuss that many Founders owned slaves, the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, and the federal government’s maltreatment of Native Americans. Heck, 90 percent of the public agrees that students should read “works by a racially diverse set of authors.”

So, it turns out that the CRT fight isn’t over whether to teach about slavery (in fact, Texas’s oft-maligned anti-CRT law mandates that schools teach a unit on slavery) so much as it’s about a series of controversial practices that deserve careful scrutiny. Unfortunately, that kind of examination hasn’t been forthcoming. Indeed, it’s almost as if the media had set out to make the skeptics and critics look unserious by giving short shrift to their actual concerns about what CRT means in practice.

That’s fanned partisan flames, sowed misunderstanding, and done a grave disservice to parents, communities, and educators who want to understand one another and find common ground. Here’s hoping for better going forward.

Take a look at Amaze, a new holiday light display in Rosemont

Once you’ve toured ZooLights, Lightscape and all the other returning displays of Christmas lights in Chicago, it might be time to turn your attention to something new (and very sparkly) this holiday season. Opening on November 19, Amaze Light Festival will light up Rosemont’s Impact Field—home to the Chicago Dogs baseball team—with more than one million holiday lights spread across seven themed exhibits, plus a roster of festive activities ranging from a holiday market to a tubing hill.

RECOMMENDED: The best things to do for Christmas in Chicago

The main attraction is the festival’s sprawling array of light displays called Illuminated Worlds, which include themed exhibits like “Sparky’s Land of Sweets” and the “Whimsical Forest” set to cheerful music, along with a free train car ride that weaves through massive illuminated snowmen as part of the “Arctic Express” display. Guests can roam along a lighted pathway to see all seven displays—with plenty of photo ops along the way—and pause to watch the festival’s dazzling light show, which sends the million-plus bulbs flashing and dancing every half hour.

Once you’ve seen all the lights, wander through a holiday market stocked with candy, food and festive drinks, or go racing at Thrill Hill, the festival’s tubing hill. You can also bring the kids to Santa’s Workshop, an interactive area that allows little ones to play with massive Light Bright boards, bounce on lit-up see-saws, visit Santa and write letters to the North Pole (just note that you’ll have to make a reservation for Santa’s Workshop in advance when you purchase your tickets online). 

Amaze opens to the public on November 19 and will run through January 2, 2022. General admission tickets ($23 for adults, $18 for children ages 2 through 12), which grant access to the main concourse and field activities, are on sale now; you can also opt for VIP or platinum tickets that offer additional amenities like access to heated tents ($34–$85).

How to make the right formwork for the foundation with your own hands

To build a building, fence or other structure, you need a foundation. And to ensure the long service life of this structure is possible only by studying in detail the main question of how to make the formwork correctly. The type of foundation is selected taking into account the purpose of the object. And on the basis of this information, the most suitable type of material for the manufacture of formwork is determined.

Overview of construction types

The foundation is poured using a paste-like concrete solution.Until the moment of solidification, the mixture is a fluid substance, therefore, to form the base of the object, formwork must be built.

This design is found in two versions:

  1. removable type;
  2. fixed.

The frame for molding allows you to easily create the ground part of the foundation. After the solution has completely solidified, the frame is removed. A removable version is usually used in the construction of a strip base of an object.The fixed version is prepared for different types of foundations: columnar, tape.

Various types (removable, non-removable)

In the first case, asbestos-cement pipes or metal analogs are used as a forming frame, which, even after the concrete has hardened, remain part of the overall structure.

And during the construction of a strip base, permanent formwork is made using expanded polystyrene. The advantage of this solution lies in the thermal insulation qualities of the material.

Classic

One of the simplest, and most importantly, available options is a structure for forming a foundation, made of a wooden board. For reliability, pegs, spacers, guide bars are used. The key elements are shields knocked down from planks.

Deck fixing

The peculiarity of this option is that the fasteners are located on the outside of the structure. This will avoid contact of metal elements with concrete.

Shields are shot down, guided by the data on the height of the ground part of the foundation. On average, the length of one boardwalk is 3 m. Such a shield will require three crossbars. To impart reliability to the structure, spacers are used, installed between the canvases of the boards.

Reinforcement diagram for foundation

To avoid deformation of the structure under the influence of cement mortar, struts are installed from the outside – bars located at an angle relative to the shield.The counteraction of this structure is created by stakes, they are driven into the ground at the base of the struts.

When deciding how to make the formwork, it must be borne in mind that all panels must be located strictly in the vertical plane. The presence of large gaps in the finished board, as well as the use of curved boards will negatively affect the external characteristics of the foundation.

In addition, solution flows out through leaks. To avoid this, plastic wrap is usually used.The formwork is covered with it from the inside, polyethylene can be fastened with brackets to the tree. To protect the base of the object from the effects of moisture present in the soil, you can cover the trench and formwork with a waterproofing material, for example, roofing material is good for this purpose.

The recommended distance between spacers in the structure is 0.5-1 m. When deciding how to make the formwork, you need to take into account the features of the material from which the structure will be built.For example, pine is best suited for this task. Moreover, the boards should not contain more than 22% moisture.

How to build a budget formwork?

To reduce the cost of construction, it is allowed to use any available and cheaper material. At the same time, it is important to take into account its strength characteristics so that the wooden frame resists the load force of the foundation.

One solution is to use plywood. For the purpose of strengthening, it is convenient to use metal corners or self-tapping screws.It is better to install a fixing element along the entire length of the shields. A profile pipe of any section is suitable: square, rectangular. This will avoid the appearance of a bend in the shield in areas of considerable length.

Supports in this case do not have to be installed along the entire length of the formwork. It is enough to use these structural elements in order to ensure an ideally even arrangement of the panels, for which the building level is usually used, you can also use a plumb line.Screeds are also a mandatory element.

Scheme of non-removable plywood formwork

It is recommended to place them in increments of up to 0.5 m. It is more convenient to fasten plywood sheets with self-tapping screws. There is another option, which can also be called a budget one, in particular, a formwork made of plastic.

Recommendations

If polyethylene will not be used, then the formwork must be moistened. This will avoid the intake of moisture from the foundation, which entails a reduction in the service life of the base of the object and reduces its strength.It is recommended to remove the formwork 2-3 weeks after the mortar has been poured. It is possible to determine that it is time to dismantle the molding structure if a gap has formed between the concrete and the formwork tree.

However, experts recommend removing the wooden frame at the end of construction, since during construction it will protect the foundation from accidental damage to the outer surface. The type of formwork structure is selected not only on the basis of the characteristics of the foundation.Another factor that should be taken into account: the difference in the levels of the load exerted by the object.

So, if in some parts of the foundation a fence or a house creates maximum stress, at these points it is better to equip a non-removable formwork option. Such measures, along with reinforcement, will strengthen the foundation of the object.

Leaks in the formwork panels can be hammered in with tow or covered with a thinner plywood sheet. If the gaps are too large, special slats are used.

Wood, more than other materials, is subject to deformation under the influence of the loading force of concrete, therefore it is important to take care of the strengthening of the structure.To do this, you need to put spacers, struts and pegs. Thinner material (plywood) requires the installation of a metal pipe, which will stiffen the structure and ensure correct positioning.

How to set the foundation formwork at the level

How to set the formwork on the level

Using the laser level, the formwork is set simultaneously along the entire perimeter.At a distance, the device projects with high accuracy the vertical and horizontal lines visible to the eye, defining the shape of the future structure.

Possibilities of laser levels for formwork

Bubble levels allow significant errors. The use of hydraulic is possible only in the range of positive temperatures. Due to the high resistance in the tubes, the liquid in the level is established for a long time. Only marking a complex foundation can take a whole day.

It is a completely different matter when the formwork is set using a laser level. This is especially true for models capable of projecting a 360 ° beam. It is enough to install such a device inside the future foundation, as we get the opportunity to expose the formwork in any place. Several workers can start work at once without crowding. The docking of the shields will be flawless.

Speaking about foundations of complex shapes, with inclined planes and edges, setting the formwork without a laser level will require painstaking and long calculations, making a model of future structures.

Laser level for household use

Professional equipment is expensive and has great functionality. For housekeeping, inexpensive rack and pinion models are enough. For advanced owners of suburban real estate, who are actively developing their personal farming, equipping the adjacent territory, it makes sense to dwell on more expensive structures with a self-leveling mechanism. Unlike rack-and-pinion laser levels, where the installation is carried out along an air bubble, here the spatial coordination is laid down in the program.The self-leveling option does not allow the slightest deviation of the beam from the base projections. You can learn more about modern models of laser levels on the website www.laserbuild.ru.

Using a laser level for formwork setting

Let’s consider the possibility of using a laser level using the example of a formwork device for a strip foundation. The professional approach is to prepare shields that are installed in a trench, leveled and hammered together.Sequence of actions:

  • we set the level to the height of the future foundation and, projecting a beam along the perimeter of the trench, we determine the required width of the shield;
  • After the manufacture of the formwork walls, they are sequentially installed. We focus on the projection of the beam. Alignment is carried out with pads under the lower edge of the boards;
  • after installing the shields horizontally, we check the verticality of the planes. The regulation is carried out by spacers inside the formwork and by upper braces;
  • after verification, the structure is rigidly knocked down.If necessary, fit the reinforcement and attach the side slopes.

A simplified formwork setting is also possible, when the beam is projected onto the finished formwork. In this case, the beacons are transferred inside the structure. A wire is pulled along them, which serves as a guide when pouring concrete.

How to set up the formwork for a strip foundation

Reliability and rigidity, the qualities that the formwork must meet, and of course, the shape of the zero level must be ideal.Therefore, for the geometry of the formwork, a deviation of no more than 2 mm and 3 mm is allowed for the joint gaps between the parts of the system. So today we will talk about how to expose the formwork from the boards for the strip foundation.

Structural device

Formwork made of wood, due to its economy, is the most used option for installing a strip-type foundation. For the manufacture of formwork, boards and bars are used, and plywood and fasteners can also be used.

Elements of the product

The main parts of the timber formwork for the foundation are:

  • The deck is in the form of a shield and is made of boards or plywood sheets;
  • Fasteners, which are used: screws and nails of various sizes, as well as the wire required to tie various elements;
  • Scaffolding struts, struts and frames for lateral stability.

When choosing wood for the manufacture of formwork, you should check it for bending, since the boards must maintain their shape under high loads from concrete, the boards must bend.

For the manufacture of formwork, planed 25 – millimeter boards, preferably coniferous, will be the best option, this wood has high elasticity and strength. When collecting shields, it is necessary to use edged (edged) boards, this will reduce the gaps.

For formwork, it is advisable to use boards with a width of up to 150 mm and high humidity. Dried wood will draw moisture out of the solution, and this will disrupt the natural course of solidification and affect the quality of concrete.

Formwork installation

Having completed the excavation work and installed a waterproofing material at the bottom of the trench, we proceed to the manufacture of shields, for which you can use the available materials.

Manufacturing of panels

For this, trimmed three-meter boards are interconnected with wooden bars, for fixing which you can use screws or nails. The bars should be installed at intervals of no more than 1 meter. One end of the block should have a pointed base to make it easier to drive into the ground.When installing the bars to the shield, it should be remembered that the pointed ends should be directed in one direction.

Formwork details are fixed with nails, which are located with caps on the inside of the foundation, this will allow you to get a foundation with even walls and facilitate dismantling.

Installation of formwork panels

The formwork should protrude at least 30 cm above the ground. To ensure high quality of the formwork, wooden panels must be securely fastened, since during pouring the concrete solution will exert high loads.

Ready-made panels are mounted around the entire perimeter of the foundation base. To fasten the shields, boards and bars are used, from which the clamps are made. The clamp has a U-shape, its vertical parts are made of a bar with a cross section of 40 mm, and for the vertical part, you can use a board 25×50 mm.

Jib braces are installed in the clamps to provide strength. For a successful assembly, it is necessary to choose the right length of the bars, taking into account that it should be equal to half the height of the backboard.Installation of clamps is carried out at each bar, which fasten the shields. When installing shields, you should strictly observe the location of the structure of the vertical and horizontal plane.

For the manufacture of supports (struts), boards are used, which are installed at an angle to the connecting bars and additionally supported by pegs. To fix the support to the bar, you can use both nails and screws. The length of the brace depends on the height of the backboard and is taken the same.

The main requirement that the entire structure of wooden formwork must meet is the absence of large gaps between the boards.The presence of cracks will facilitate the flow of cement, and as a result, the structure of the foundation will have irregular shapes.

Ideal wooden formwork can have gaps of no more than 3 mm, such gaps, when pouring mortar and soaking wood, will quickly disappear.

If, after manufacturing, the formwork has a large number of cracks, they must be eliminated, for this you can use roofing material or plastic wrap. These materials are installed from the inside of the formwork and fixed with nails or a construction stapler.

Carrying out the installation of the formwork, the installation of reinforcement is carried out at the same time. After completing the installation and fixing of the formwork, using a level, its horizontalness is checked. It will not be superfluous to check the fastening of each structural element and compliance with the design dimensions.

After repeated checks, the concrete can be poured.

How to set the formwork under the foundation

In order to create a concrete or reinforced concrete structure, formwork is always required first.This is a temporary structure that plays the role of a peculiar form for pouring a solution, which, when dried, becomes the foundation. And here the question arises: “How to correctly expose the foundation formwork and not make a lot of mistakes?” Here you need to show care and responsibility, having studied all the necessary rules and nuances. You can also try to expose the foundation formwork, based on the watched videos provided by experienced specialists.

Types of formwork

Formwork for the foundation is divided into two most basic types:

  1. Removable, removed after the concrete mixture has completely hardened.For the manufacture of such a structure, wooden boards, boards, or metal elements are used
  2. Non-removable remain with the mortar for the entire existence of the future building.

But the structures also differ in the type of material that is used for their construction. There are metal and wooden structures. That is why, before placing the formwork under the foundation, it is necessary to finally decide on its type and the material used for this.To facilitate the task, it is worthwhile to familiarize yourself with each option in detail.

Wooden formwork

This option is the oldest and, nevertheless, still widespread. For the construction of this element, wooden boards, various shields are used. In order to connect the individual elements, beams are used. For the same purposes, a variety of ties, staples and wires may be required.

Important! When designing such a formwork, it is impossible to leave gaps between individual elements, since otherwise the solution may flow out, and this will lead to the formation of an absolutely poor quality foundation.

Metal formwork

Metal formwork is a more reliable and durable option. Here, the most suitable options are aluminum alloys and galvanized steel. Each of the proposed options has its own characteristics. You can purchase a ready-made structure or make it yourself.

Fixed formwork

This type can be made of metal. But the most commonly used polystyrene foam, which at the same time also plays the role of a heat-insulating layer.This type of structure is produced in the form of separate blocks, which are connected at the place of construction of the structure before pouring the solution.

For the connection, special reinforcement is used, which also serves to strengthen the strength.

Conditions for the correct installation of the formwork

After the type of structure has been determined, the answers to the question are required: “How to properly expose the formwork under the foundation?” Indeed, the quality of not only the foundation itself, but the entire building completely depends on this.

In order to do everything correctly, you must follow the following rules:

  1. Before installing the formwork, it is necessary to inspect and put in order the area chosen for the construction, namely: remove all debris and smooth out all existing irregularities in the soil;
  2. Inspect the wooden materials prepared for the construction of the formwork for unevenness and dirt.

Important! The inside of the prepared board should be perfectly flat, without chips, cracks and heavy dirt.If possible, replace this material with smooth plywood.

  • The alignment of the structure must be strictly level;
  • Fasteners must be very tightly fixed, since if this condition is not observed, deformation of the future foundation may occur;
  • When designing the formwork, it is worth checking the surface for cracks and gaps.
  • It is imperative that after the formwork is fully installed and secured, it is worth re-checking that all the rules are met.The following devices will help with this: building level and corner, plumb line.

    Assembly and installation of the formwork for the strip foundation

    As you know, the exposed formwork for the foundation should be at least 50 cm wide. But the height should be about 1 m. It is also worth paying attention to the selected board, which in its width should be at least 20 cm. The fastening of the boards should be carried out not only at the joints of the elements, but also in the central part of the assembled formwork panel.

    Ordinary nails and self-tapping screws are used to fasten the individual elements.

    Advice! There is a peculiar way of fastening the boards with nails. They should be directed relative to each other at different angles. This technique is due to the fact that the result obtained will be more durable when checked for fracture, and, therefore, the structure will be less sensitive to subsequent loads.

    It is also necessary to prepare beams and boards with a length of at least 55 cm.

    Now you can start installing the prepared structure. The lower part of the shields should be located along the contour of the prepared trench. The upper part should be connected using prepared boards and beams. The interval between them should be no more than 1 m.

    Further, wedging of the formwork from the inside is required. For this, fittings are most often used. The length of each metal rod should be about half a meter. To secure the reinforcement, the sharp part must be driven into the wood.

    You will also need to secure the structure from the outside. For this, reinforcement is also used, which is installed at an angle to the ground. A building level is used to check the correct installation. Now you can start pouring the concrete mixture.

    In order to see in practice how to expose the foundation formwork, this video, and many others can be viewed on the Internet on construction sites.

    Conclusion

    In order to correctly assemble and expose the formwork, you should carefully study all the rules and features of this process.In addition, it will be necessary to determine the type of design, since the process technology largely depends on this.

    How to assemble formwork for pouring concrete?

    In order for the work on the construction of the foundation for the building to be completed quickly and efficiently, it is required to erect a special formwork for pouring the concrete mixture.It is most often assembled from boards immediately on the spot. For a small country house, it is enough to build a wooden formwork from an edged board, but if larger-scale work is planned, then the structure will be more serious. For private low-rise construction, plank formwork is most often used. It is easy to assemble and the installation costs are not very high. Let’s find out how to set up such a formwork correctly so that everything is smooth and without errors.

    Any formwork for strip foundations should be easily dismantled after the concrete has set.

    Classification of structures for pouring

    The formwork used in construction can be very different. Casting structures can be classified according to several criteria:

    • small-panel;
    • large panel board;
    • fixed;
    • removable;
    • variable volume;
    • block;
    • climbing-and-adjustable;
    • horizontally movable.
    1. According to the materials used:

    Formwork of strip foundations.

    • steel;
    • wooden;
    • aluminum;
    • plastic;
    • combined.
    1. By type of thermal conductivity:
    • insulated;
    • not insulated.

    Today, many different types of foundation formwork can be made. Basically, the following types of structures are used for pouring concrete:

    • prefabricated panel board – this is the most common type, which is assembled from ordinary wood.In this case, it is required to fasten the edged boards with nails into the shields, from which the formwork will be assembled. This option is the simplest and most economical, but strict alignment of individual elements by level is required so that there are no distortions;
    • The construction of film faced plywood assumes the use of moisture resistant film faced plywood, the sheets are mounted on a special frame. Such formwork turns out to be more expensive, it can be disassembled and used for another type of work.It is used in the event that large-scale construction work is planned;
    • The panel board is assembled from ordinary moisture-resistant plywood, individual elements are pulled together with brackets, spacers are used for fastening. This option is very reliable; during installation, leveling is necessary in order to prevent irregularities.

    Formwork for a strip-pile foundation.

    It is necessary to approach the formwork quite seriously, since the quality, strength, and reliability of the entire foundation depend on this.If the formwork is set incorrectly, then the structure will not have the parameters that are necessary, which means that the foundation will bring many difficulties. In order to correctly expose the formwork, it is necessary to observe the following features of the work:

    • before proceeding with the assembly of the structure, the area where the construction will be carried out should be completely cleaned of debris and existing irregularities. In many cases, it is required to remove the fertile soil layer;
    • Although ordinary edged boards can be used under the foundation formwork, you will have to ensure that the surface facing the concrete is level and clean.

      It is not allowed that the inner surface of the boards contains irregularities, cracks, traces of dirt, chips, etc.

      Therefore, experts often recommend using plywood panels for such a structure, the surface of which is perfectly flat;

    • It is necessary to set the formwork strictly according to the level, all fastenings are made in such a way that no shrinkage occurs when the concrete mixture hardens. If this condition is not observed, then the foundation will begin to deform, and in the future will not withstand the loads that were planned during construction;
    • When attaching individual elements, care must be taken that there are no gaps or gaps between the individual boards.All fasteners must be reliable, capable of withstanding the load from the concrete poured into the structure. It will be correct after installation to additionally walk along the walls in order to double-check everything.

    To check the evenness of the formwork before pouring, you can use the following tools: plumb line, building level, corner. If the formwork is used several times, then after removing it, it is necessary to remove all traces of concrete, clean the fasteners. It is also recommended to check the integrity of the boards and boards.

    Panel formwork scheme.

    In order to mount a continuous formwork for the foundation, it is necessary to perform the following stages of work:

    • the so-called lighthouse boards, that is, boards that are necessary for leveling the base, are placed first. They should be placed on the sides at a distance of 3-4 m, they should be fastened with struts and tapes of the required rigidity. The result is an even coating;
    • To make the foundation formwork more reliable, the boards should be fastened on the sides with longitudinal boards, they are usually nailed from the outside.To give the longitudinal boards more stability, it is necessary to install inclined struts, which will also allow aligning the lighthouse shields vertically;
    • Ordinary shields are additionally fastened with spring brackets, special tension hooks;
    • In some cases, continuous formwork for a strip foundation can have a height exceeding 2 m, therefore, it is correct to provide the structure with platforms and ladders for the convenience of pouring concrete;
    • After the concrete has dried, the formwork for the foundation can be disassembled.All dismantling operations are performed in reverse order.

    Scheme of removable formwork for the foundation.

    In some cases, step formwork is made for a strip-type foundation. This process is very simple, although it is required to strictly adhere to all stages in order for the foundation to be made correctly and to be strong and reliable. The work on setting the stepped formwork includes:

    • installation of the lower stage of the structure for casting;
    • Concreting of the lower layer;
    • Installation of the second stage, the so-called small formwork;
    • concreting of the second layer and so on.

    The work can be carried out by another method. In this case, the stepped formwork is assembled immediately to the entire required height. But you will have to make sure that all surfaces and corners are correctly docked, each tier of the resulting structure should very accurately repeat the lower one already installed. After the formwork has been assembled and checked, you can proceed to reinforcement and pouring with concrete.

    In order to correctly position the formwork for the slab foundation, it is necessary at the preparation stage to ensure that the walls and the bottom of the pit under the slab are as even as possible. After that, the sand cushion is poured and tamped. Boards for such a structure are set according to level: the height of the wall should be slightly higher than the design point of the upper surface of the concrete foundation slab. This is required so that the poured solution does not overflow the edges. If the slab is low, then it is correct to take one row of edged boards, the height of which will be up to 50 cm.If the height of the slab is greater, then it is necessary to set 2 rows or 3, 4.

    Vertically spaced spacers are aligned on the outside. They are driven into the ground, held together. Horizontal and vertical angles must be checked even when placing the structure, since after pouring it will be impossible to fix anything. After exposing the formwork at the bottom of the pit, a layer of waterproofing is spread over the entire area. After that, you can proceed with the reinforcement and pouring of the concrete foundation slab.

    Scheme of the pillar foundation formwork.

    The structure for a columnar foundation is placed in approximately the same principle as for a conventional strip foundation, but in this case the boards must stand vertically and have a horizontal fastening. Several props can be installed vertically if the foundation is higher than 1 m. The joints must be airtight so that the concrete does not leak out during pouring. Ordinary edged board is suitable if concreting is performed for rectangular or square supports, but if the wells are round, then it is necessary to use ceramic or asbestos pipes as formwork for pouring.The latter option will not be removable, that is, the formwork will not be removed, but will remain in the well.

    Separately, it is worth noting the formwork for the pillar foundation grillage. Its difference is that it is located at a certain elevation above the ground level. In this case, the formwork elements are carefully strengthened at the lower corners so that when pouring the concrete mixture cannot flow out, the quality of the work depends on this. The sloped supports are made longer than for a conventional strip base, but otherwise the design is no different.

    Formwork is one of the most important stages in the construction of any foundation. When exposing such a structure, which is a special frame for pouring concrete, it is necessary to take into account the peculiarities of the base, the type of formwork (removable and non-removable). The structure itself must be carefully leveled so that later there are no unnecessary problems with the foundation.

    How to correctly level the formwork under the foundation?

    When erecting a monolithic foundation, it is very important to correctly position the formwork – the structure must create a rigid form with the given geometric dimensions.

    The strength and reliability of the foundation support of the building directly depends on the accuracy of the alignment. This article is all about how to correctly position the formwork for pouring the foundation supports.

    Which one to choose?

    Fixed formwork

    A distinction is made between removable and non-removable formwork structures. For a monolithic foundation, it is usually made of wood, plywood, or metal. Fixed forms for the foundation are made of expanded polystyrene sheets. Expanded polystyrene is not dismantled after the concrete mixture has hardened – the layer serves as additional insulation of the foundation supports (this manufacturing method is most acceptable for areas with a cold climate).

    Assembly of the foundation formwork is necessary when concreting monolithic building structures – a reinforcing cage is installed in it, a concrete mixture is poured, which, solidifying, gives the foundation structures the necessary shape and rigidity. Clearly exposed formwork panels help to maintain the monolithic reinforced concrete foundation in the dimensions specified by the project.

    Manufacturing of panels from wood

    Wooden formwork

    Formwork made from wooden planks must be adjusted as much as possible, achieving minimum gaps between the two boards so that the concrete mixture does not flow out of the box through the existing cracks.Formwork forms should have maximum smoothness, not have any flaws, in which case the finishing of the foundation walls will be very easy to bring to perfection.

    Wooden formwork is made in the form of an elongated shield; during installation, the elements are fastened together using metal fasteners (nails and self-tapping screws). The wood is chosen from coniferous species, planed edged boards with a thickness of 25 mm, with a width of up to 150 mm, are ideal.

    Racks and frames of the form for a monolithic foundation are made of wooden blocks – these elements ensure the stability of the boards during the pouring of concrete.

    It is very important to use lumber of high humidity for the manufacture of formwork – this is necessary so that the tree does not absorb moisture from the concrete solution, which will greatly worsen the quality of the solidified concrete solution.

    Installation rules

    Pouring the foundation

    During installation, it is very important to comply with the existing building codes and regulations – this will help to pour a strong and reliable foundation made of monolithic reinforced concrete: construction reliability and stability, for which, on problem soils, it is required to put board trimmings under the support posts.

  • Shields must remain unchanged for a sufficiently long period, taking into account the effect on them of the mass of concrete poured into the structure, therefore, the wooden formwork can be strengthened by setting braces, racks and supports.
  • In subsiding and heaving soils, the form is mounted on special foundation cuttings buried below the freezing point of the soil.
  • Installation work

    It is convenient to mark the formwork on the building site with pegs with a construction cord or fishing line pulled along them.It is very important to remember that the foundation should be 10-15 cm wider than the walls. Each action should be checked with a level and a laser level – this way you can ensure the most even arrangement of formwork panels.

    It is possible to set the formwork correctly only when using a level, which should periodically check the possible displacement of the panels during installation.

    It is possible to start the installation of the shields only on level ground, securing each shield with the help of scraps of reinforcement and wooden supporting pegs.Shields are fastened with reinforcing rods from the inside – after concreting, the reinforcement will serve as an additional element of reinforcement to give vertical rigidity. Watch a video on how to mount the formwork without errors.

    The lower edges of the formwork panels must fully rest on the upper surface of the ground, and the adjacent elements must have the closest possible contact with each other.

    The side panels are pulled together using special ties made of timber, which is reinforced over the formwork panels from above.The screeds are installed every 0.5 – 1.0 meter.

    How to correctly set the formwork panels at the level of

    Usually, the formwork rises 30 cm above the ground level, it is very important to set the panels as evenly as possible so that there are no differences in height on the foundation surface. All formwork installation operations should be level checked. It is very important to level the upper edge of the formwork, for which a stake is driven in the center of the building, on which the zero level of the foundation is marked. Then, using a tubular level, the marks are brought out to the surface of the formwork panels or stakes.The concrete should be poured into the structure according to the risks involved.

    When the concrete mixture hardens and gains strength, the panels can be dismantled, usually 14-15 days after the concrete is poured.

    When arranging formwork under the foundation, it is better not to hack in the work, otherwise the durability of the built house will be in jeopardy.

    In order to create a concrete or reinforced concrete structure, formwork is always required initially.This is a temporary structure that plays the role of a peculiar form for pouring a solution, which, when dried, becomes the foundation. And here the question arises: “How to correctly expose the foundation formwork and not make a lot of mistakes?” Here you need to show care and responsibility, having studied all the necessary rules and nuances. You can also try to expose the foundation formwork, based on the watched videos provided by experienced specialists.

    Types of formwork

    Formwork for the foundation is divided into two most basic types:

    1. Removable, removable after complete hardening of the concrete mixture.For the manufacture of such a structure, wooden boards, boards, or metal elements are used
    2. Non-removable remain with the mortar for the entire existence of the future building.

    But the structures also differ in the type of material that is used for their construction. There are metal and wooden structures. That is why, before placing the formwork under the foundation, it is necessary to finally decide on its type and the material used for this.To facilitate the task, it is worthwhile to familiarize yourself with each option in detail.

    Wooden formwork

    This option is the oldest and, nevertheless, still widespread. For the construction of this element, wooden boards, various shields are used. In order to connect the individual elements, beams are used. For the same purposes, a variety of ties, staples and wires may be required.

    Important! When designing such a formwork, it is impossible to leave gaps between individual elements, since otherwise the solution may flow out, and this will lead to the formation of an absolutely poor quality foundation.

    Metal formwork

    Metal formwork is a more reliable and durable option. Here, the most suitable options are aluminum alloys and galvanized steel. Each of the proposed options has its own characteristics. You can purchase a ready-made structure or make it yourself.

    Fixed formwork

    This type can be made of metal. But the most commonly used polystyrene foam, which at the same time also plays the role of a heat-insulating layer.This type of structure is produced in the form of separate blocks, which are connected at the place of construction of the structure before pouring the solution.

    For the connection, special reinforcement is used, which also serves to strengthen the strength.

    Conditions for the correct installation of the formwork

    After the type of structure has been determined, the answers to the question are required: “How to properly expose the formwork under the foundation?” Indeed, the quality of not only the foundation itself, but the entire building completely depends on this.

    In order to do everything correctly, you must follow the following rules:

    1. Before installing the formwork, it is necessary to inspect and put in order the area chosen for the construction, namely: remove all debris and smooth out all existing irregularities in the soil;
    2. Inspect the wooden materials prepared for the construction of the formwork for unevenness and dirt.

      Important! The inside of the prepared board should be perfectly flat, without chips, cracks and heavy dirt.If possible, replace this material with smooth plywood.

    3. The alignment of the structure must be strictly level;
    4. Fasteners must be very tightly fixed, since if this condition is not observed, deformation of the future foundation may occur;
    5. When designing the formwork, it is worth checking the surface for cracks and gaps.

    It is imperative that after the formwork is fully installed and secured, it is worth re-checking that all the rules are met.The following devices will help with this: building level and corner, plumb line.

    Assembly and installation of the formwork for the strip foundation

    As you know, the exposed formwork for the foundation should be at least 50 cm wide. But the height should be about 1 m. It is also worth paying attention to the selected board, which in its width should be at least 20 cm. The fastening of the boards should be carried out not only at the joints of the elements, but also in the central part of the assembled formwork panel.

    Ordinary nails and self-tapping screws are used to fasten the individual elements.

    Advice! There is a peculiar way of fastening the boards with nails. They should be directed relative to each other at different angles. This technique is due to the fact that the result obtained will be more durable when checked for fracture, and, therefore, the structure will be less sensitive to subsequent loads.

    It is also necessary to prepare beams and boards with a length of at least 55 cm.

    Now you can start installing the prepared structure. The lower part of the shields should be located along the contour of the prepared trench. The upper part should be connected using prepared boards and beams. The interval between them should be no more than 1 m.

    Further, wedging of the formwork from the inside is required. For this, fittings are most often used. The length of each metal rod should be about half a meter. To secure the reinforcement, the sharp part must be driven into the wood.

    You will also need to fix the structure from the outside. For this, reinforcement is also used, which is installed at an angle to the ground. A building level is used to check the correct installation. Now you can start pouring the concrete mixture.

    In order to see in practice how to expose the foundation formwork, this video, and many others can be viewed on the Internet on construction sites.

    Conclusion

    In order to properly assemble and expose the formwork, you should carefully study all the rules and features of this process.In addition, it will be necessary to determine the type of design, since the process technology largely depends on this.

    Formwork for a foundation with our own hands and step-by-step instructions for the process

    because it is necessary to calculate the strength of boards, boards, metal and other elements that participate in this “interactive event”.Suppose you are building a one-story house or garage. For the formwork, we need OSB sheets 12 mm thick, 10 mm is possible, but concrete will have to be poured gradually so that the “belly” does not squeeze out anywhere. Instead of OSB sheets, you can use old wooden doors, metal gates, iron sheets and everything that is not weaker in strength and has a flat surface.

    It does not have to be exactly on both sides. Even on the inside, irregularities of 2-3 centimeters are allowed – this is quite normal and will not affect the process in any way.The main thing is that you can easily pick out this material from the concrete later, that is, without any elements that fall into the space intended for pouring concrete. Next, we need a 50×50 mm wooden beam, which we will cut. It is desirable that it be made of hard wood, ideally larch. Its cost, of course, is considerable, therefore, if there are not enough funds, you can buy 10 meters of pine timber.

    We expose the formwork and the internal screed

    The plot about the formwork with our own hands

    In order for the formwork for the foundation to be even, it is necessary to level the sole in level, make sure that its angle of inclination is insignificant, and there is a small gap between the OSB sheets and the ground, which can easily be filled with a solution.Next, you need to follow the instructions.

    We cut a wooden bar into 25 centimeters (depending on the width of the foundation, if it is 30 cm, then we cut into 30), and we make sure that the cut is as even as possible. We will need about 4 such pieces per 1 linear meter of the foundation, if its height is 150 centimeters (average for a house).

    We put 2 sheets of OSB or shields opposite each other, insert a bar 25 centimeters long between them and screw 1 screw each from different sides through the OSB plate.Such a procedure is also necessary when installing ordinary boards as formwork, since it significantly increases the strength of the entire structure.

    The next block of OSB or other suitable material is fastened so that there is a minimum gap between them, we screw it with strips. So we expose everything to the very end, so that there are no cracks anywhere. The thickness of the foundation will be the same everywhere, since you can control it with a block of wood. Such a device for the formwork of a strip foundation can significantly increase its accuracy.

    Now we have a finished structure that needs to be leveled left-right. It is still easy to move and can be corrected, but it is better to initially set everything along a string in order to avoid possible “waves”. It is much harder to work with boards, although it will turn out to be 20% cheaper. The thickness of the board for the foundation formwork does not have to be large – 1.5 cm will be enough, because the main thing is internal reinforcement and external supports.

    External struts

    Video about the installation of formwork supports

    Now let’s move on to the most important part of our business – external formwork supports.Without them, it will simply fall apart, so you need to devote some time and allocate materials for the construction of such elements. Let’s look at step-by-step instructions on how to do this.

    We cut a wooden beam of 60, 90 and 120 centimeters in size. Leave 1 edge cut at an even angle, and make the other 45 degrees.

    Every meter we install 3 supports at a height of 60, 90 and 120 centimeters, respectively. With a right angle we rest against the ground and hammer in the timber a little, after which we tilt the pointed end to the OSB sheet, to which it adjoins perfectly.We tighten the screw.

    We hammer in the vertical supports. Basically, the entire structure will hold on to them. It is necessary to take a stepladder and metal pipes, corners, squares – everything that has a good bearing capacity and hammer them into the ground by 50-60 centimeters, and right next to the formwork. This will prevent the bottom from moving away.

    Manufacturing of formwork for a strip foundation in this way will maximize the protection of the structure from breakage, even with rapid pouring of the foundation.But do not rush, it is better to do everything in several stages – the effect will be much better.

    Finishing robots

    It is still too early to say that you know how to make the formwork for the foundation, since everything must be prepared for pouring concrete and only then can we talk about the completion of the work. The first step is to stretch the thread – the level at which the foundation will be poured. If you make a mistake somewhere with the level, then the whole structure will be of poor quality, since it is impossible to add 5-6 centimeters after the concrete has hardened.This violates the law of solidity. It will also not work to install a crooked house, it will take a long and tedious way to align the first rows.

    We take the level, lower it between the sheets of OSB, mark the zero value line with a marker, then pull the thread so that it passes exactly along the marks. Now you can fill the foundation by observing the level and leveling it. Wooden internal screeds are left inside or removed when the foundation is poured (when the foundation is reached, they stop for 2 hours before the reinforcing element, so that the concrete settles a little, then the timber is unscrewed).

    Now we have seen how to make the formwork for the foundation and strengthen it from the outside and from the inside. Such a system is suitable for a garage or a one-story house, for a cottage it would be better to use boards – they are slightly stronger and easier to remove later. The only negative is to fix them for a very long time.

And all sorts of empty lightning shields or whatever else does not work, despite the fact that I exhibited exactly “Trees” for permissible purposes (there he also writes that the target should be a combat unit).”Eating a tree” is unlikely to help – it completely cuts down the tree, but I need to not completely cut down, but just destroy the already cut down.

    You can make an ability that removes stumps in a certain radius.Here’s an example.

    accessories for aluminum, plastic and wooden formwork

    For the construction of monolithic structures, such as foundations, walls, various types of formwork are widely used.They can be classified by design, purpose, material from which they are made. The manufacturer also plays a role, but we will not advertise for them, because most of them have similar designs.

    We will consider the question of what kind of wall formwork is, relying mainly on the material, and talk about its factory execution.

    Advantages of factory formwork

    Basically, the use of factory reusable formwork is justified, it has the following advantages:

    • Simplicity of design
    • Relatively light weight of components
    • Reliability and mechanical strength
    • Ensuring high labor safety
    • Ability to erect structures of various configurations
    • Speed ​​of construction

    Prefabricated fixed wall formwork is used precisely in cases where increased strength, reliability and safety are required.It is these benefits that outweigh the economic feasibility.

    Formwork structure

    The use of factory formwork is convenient and justified by the fact that it is a set of all necessary components, this greatly simplifies installation and reduces the time of work.

    It includes the following elements:

    • Shields of various materials that form the immediate wall of the foundation or wall.
    • Support posts, which give rigidity to the structure, allowing the boards to be positioned and unfastened in the required position.
    • Fasteners for connecting panels to each other, fastening to the posts. They have different shapes (bolts, ties, studs, etc.).

    All these wall formwork accessories are supplied as a set.

    As far as possible multiple use, the formwork can be divided into:

    • removable,
    • fixed.

    Removable structures can be used in the construction of several objects, which makes their use the most rational from an economic point of view.

    Non-detachable structures are most often used when installing the foundation and are left in the ground. A striking example is the formwork made of expanded polystyrene, which serves as an effective insulation for the structure and is used in particularly cold conditions.

    Wooden wall formwork, made in the form of knocked down panels, can be either removable or non-removable.It depends on its quality. After long-term operation, such shields can be cheaper to bury than to dismantle.

    Timber formwork

    Various standard sizes of the elements included in the kit make it possible to form surfaces of various shapes from them. From them, you can dial straight long spans, or you can connect in such a way that you get an almost perfect circle. That is why many factory structures can be used as formwork for walls and columns.

    Materials used for wall formwork

    The construction industry is constantly proposing new materials with qualities that make them more efficient under certain conditions.

    But mainly for the production of formwork they use:

    • Steel
    • Aluminum
    • Plywood
    • Plastic

    All these materials have their advantages and disadvantages, there are no ideal designs suitable for all conditions.

    Due to the significant cost of these materials, mainly removable wall formwork is produced.

    Steel wall formwork

    For the production of the frame of such a formwork, in order to reduce the weight of the structure, a special profile made of galvanized iron is used.

    This design of the supporting frame allows the installation of reliable systems, additional rigidity is provided by the use of special profiles on which the formwork panels are supported.

    That is why the deflection of the loaded formwork does not exceed 0.25% of its dimensions, which makes it possible to obtain a perfectly flat wall surface that can not be subjected to further processing.

    The same purpose is served by the use of panels made of film faced plywood, its use also simplifies the dismantling process.

    The steel wall formwork in the corner sections is provided with special lever structures, which will allow it to be positioned with maximum accuracy.In this case, all adjustment manipulations are performed quite simply.

    The dimensions of the sections allow it to be used both on small and large construction sites, steel structures are widely used as formwork for monolithic walls.

    Aluminum Formwork

    Such formwork, while maintaining the same properties, is 3 times lighter than steel, this is its main advantage. It can be used in the construction of various volumes. But, it is true, and its cost is much higher.

    Durability and reliability is ensured by the use of self-tightening locks, due to its low weight, it can be used at significant heights. If financial resources are available, aluminum wall formwork can be considered a good choice, however, it must be regularly cleaned of concrete.

    Plywood formwork

    Such structures, due to their low cost, are distinguished by high turnover, that is, their economic feasibility is quite high.

    To make concrete resistant, it is necessary to use moisture-resistant plywood, and even better laminated.

    The disadvantages include a relatively short service life and expensive repairs. But, despite this, plywood wall formwork has the right to life.

    Plastic formwork

    Appeared on the markets not so long ago, but is confidently gaining popularity. For its manufacture, fiberglass and polypropylene are used, which gives the structure its rigidity and reliability.

    High-quality formwork allows up to 500 revolutions, which is 10 times higher than that of metal structures.

    Advantages of this formwork:

    • installation can be carried out without prior personnel training, it does not require special tools,
    • plastic wall formwork resists deformation,
    • absolutely moisture resistant,
    • does not adhere to concrete, additional cleaning is practically not required.

    Can be used for both walls and ceilings. Its price, of course, is not low, but the cost is justified by all the advantages.

    Which formwork to choose is, of course, up to you. I would only like to note that for private low-rise housing construction, its purchase is economically inexpedient, the solution is usually the lease of such structures. But in most cases, the formwork is assembled on its own, from the available materials.

The maximum that awaits them is adding or removing parameters, but not reworking the effects (with one exception – Mikael’s Blessing has lost Harmony, which restores health).Keep in mind that mythic items increase stats for every legendary item purchased, so some debuffs are at least partially compensated by this mechanic.
