Slant AnchorSlant Anchor

The new Slant Anchor reduces installation costs by 37% compared to a typical embed connection. It eliminates the time-consuming embed match-up, field welding and certification steps.

You save money with every Slant Anchor… there are fewer components to buy, the anchors are easier to position and install, and no welding inspection is needed.

SureBuilt Adding Tilt-Up Engineering Services

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

[Bellwood, IL – May 9, 2018] In response to increasing contractor demand for its tilt-up products, SureBuilt is adding engineering services for project application support. Tom Fahey, owner and CEO, announced these services will be located in the new SureBuilt warehouse and manufacturing facility at 1851 Massaro Avenue in Tampa, FL.

The services, called SureBuilt Engineering Services, will be managed by Dave Reardon, an industry professional with more than 30 years of concrete construction experience, including tilt-up expertise in the Florida market. He will be directing a team of uniquely qualified designers who are already familiar with tilt-up specification, engineering and construction practices.

Dave stated, “The industry is always looking for fresh ideas, innovative products, and value-added services. SureBuilt is looking to introduce these types of industry changing ideas through an offering of enhanced engineering services. Our mission is to provide the contractor and supplier the tools to improve and expedite the construction process.”

To that end, we have established a new tilt-up brace production line for 42’ and 52’ sizes to meet growing demand. This line will help us achieve and maintain the required quality in a high-production environment. Of course, all SureBuilt tilt-up braces conform to the latest TCA and AISC guidelines.

Dave added, “Our goal is to support our distribution in their efforts to deliver products and services that will benefit the contractor. Our collaborative efforts should always ensure each project is a success.”

While the new SureBuilt Engineering Services group is immediately responsible for tilt-up projects throughout North America, they also will be coordinating activities with an expanding form, shoring and stud rail engineering group at SureBuilt headquarters in Bellwood, IL.

SureBuilt Concrete Forms & Accessories is an innovation and productivity leader for the concrete construction industry. With 320,000 square feet of indoor manufacturing space and 10 acres of outdoor storage, SureBuilt is well-positioned for growth. Located near Chicago, SureBuilt can supply “Made in USA” products and services throughout North America.

Helical Ground Anchor (HGA) Bracket

Load-rated device for quickly connecting tilt-up brace shoes to helical ground anchors.

The HGA Bracket provides a simple and quick connection point between helical ground anchors and tilt-up braces. The new patent-pending design eliminates the need to remove, then reattach, pipe brace shoes. The pipe brace shoe bolts directly to the bracket plate and ground anchor bolts to the bracket sleeve.

A structural precast insert that pivots open to provide a connecting point

This unique structural insert, when postioned and reinforced in precast elements, acts as a corbel and provides the connection points for subsequent panel cladding.

The SureClad Lock is retracted and covered during concrete placement. Once positioned and reinforced, there are no other forming requirements.

Unique anchor provides simple panel-to-foundation connection without welding or bolting.

The Slant Anchor is an assembly used to connect tilt-up or precast panels to a foundation. The assembly includes a load-rated Slant Anchor, foam Void Former, high-strength Ductile Bar and prepackaged Flowable Grout.

The Slant Anchor is an integral part of the panel design and planning. The anchor is positioned and reinforced in each panel during concrete forming operations. The foam Void Former covers the connection sleeve.

Expanded metal sheet for leave-in-place concrete forming applications

This leave-in-place sheet is typically used to form footings, bulkheads, grade beams, pile caps and blindside walls. The expanded metal sheets are easy to cut, lap, splice, bend and pierce, minimizing related forming costs. When concrete is placed, the ribs and mesh are embedded in the structure, providing a rough surface for subsequent concrete placement.

  • Reduces labor and material costs compared to traditional forming methods for wall joints and “buried” applications.
  • Saves cycle time because the sheet remains in place, only supports and bracing are removed, and form stripping is eliminated.
  • Allows concrete placement to be visually monitored, reducing the risk of voids and “honeycombing.”
  • Simpli esformjointsandpiercingssorebar operations can continue, or be revised, with minimal obstructions.
  • Provides a quick-to-install joint option in the event of schedule change, ready-mix interruption or other unanticipated problem.
  • Utilizes the existing rebar in structures, like grade beams and pier caps, to eliminate placing and removing temporary supports.
  • Eliminates the cost associated with handling, setting, stripping and cleaning conventional formwork.
