With Snap Tie Forming!

Job-built forming with snap ties and plywood

Job-built forming with plywood, 2×4 lumber, Snap Ties and Jahn-style brackets, is popular on many construction sites around the country. Though only a few components are required, sufficient time and labor are necessary to plan, mark, cut and drill the plywood.

Jahn-style Waler Brackets are the preferred choice of many concrete contractors. This bracket centers and captures the tie, while supporting a 2×4 waler across the top. An “ear” plate swivels to secure the assembly for concrete placement.

Snap ties are used for job-built forming with plywood

Short-end (SE) Snap Ties are used for single 2×4 waler setups. Long-end (LE) Snap Ties are used for waler/strongback combinations. Odd-end (OE) Snap Ties are used when forming with a single waler on one side and a waler/strongback combination on the other side. All Snap Ties are made to break back below the concrete wall surface.

When long-end ties are used, the Jahn-style Strongback Bracket is needed. This bracket captures the tie, horizontal 2×4 waler and vertical 2×4 strongbacks. An “ear” plate swivels to secure the assembly for concrete placement.


Stud Rail Now ICC Compliant!

Not just any manufacturer can go out and get an ICC certification of compliance — doing so for Stud Rail DSA required resources and dedication.

SureBuilt was up to the task — Stud Rail has been thoroughly evaluated and is now ICC compliant.

The stated mission of the ICC Evaluation Service is to perform “technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials,” so this compliance establishes a baseline for quality with the following benefits:

  • Trust – The ICC, a neutral organization, provides an independent, third-party validation. This proves the product is compliant with codes and standards nationwide.
  • Education – The ICC compliance can reduce the specification approval process on each project, helping distributors quickly identify and propose the correct product solution.

  • Credibility – An ICC technical staff member evaluates data, such as raw material properties and performance testing, in addition to a manufacturing process review, to ensure compliance.

You can propose Stud Rail DSA with even greater confidence. Download the Stud Rail brochure, send us a set of plans or call your SureBuilt representative for more information.
