Encasement’s Forma column casings – versatility, practicality & style

  • 19 Dec 2022

Forma metal column casings, part of Encasement’s extensive column casings range, offer a highly versatile solution for concealing interior and exterior structural steelwork, as well as building services, whilst also providing a stylish and durable finish to every project.

Bespoke manufactured from aluminium or stainless steel, Forma casings are available in thicknesses from 1.5mm to 3mm, depending on the profile and material selected, and are ideal for interior and exterior applications due to their inherent weather resistance and durability.

Produced using precision bending techniques, Forma is specifiable in a selected range of standard diameters from 250mm to 1000mm, although most Forma casings are manufactured to individual dimensions and the specific requirements of individual projects, as well as in square, rectangular or hexagonal forms and unique custom profiles.


The choice of finishes is also very broad, and in addition to PPC coating options, in any RAL colour, various brushed, anodised, embossed and textured finishes are also specifiable, including Rimex. Individual Forma casings can feature on projects with heights of up to 3000mm, while multiple casings are stackable to reach extended heights.

Forma allows complete freedom to explore design possibilities, yet also enables architects, specifiers and contractors to have total control over the selection of materials, specifications, forms and finishes.

This provides the ultimate in versatility and these features have already been put to good use on a range of prestigious interior and exterior projects including Porsche West LondonTetrosyl head office reception area; Birmingham Dental Hospital and Winchester College.
