New Taper Dowel for Slabs!

The diamond-shaped Taper Dowel is an engineered load transfer system for horizontal movement in concrete floors.

The Taper Dowel set includes a plastic void sleeve and dowel plate. The sleeve is nailed to the edge form before concrete placement. After the forms are removed, the dowel plate is inserted in each sleeve in preparation for the adjoining slab.

A properly installed Taper Dowel minimizes joint spalling, eliminates tripping hazards and improves joint filler appearance.

The Taper Dowel is recommended for joints up to 3/4” wide and is suitable for all types of ground level concrete floors, slabs or pavements:

  • A unique plastic sleeve and steel plate, used in combination, creates an engineered load transfer doweling system for concrete flatwork.
  • The flat diamond-shape provides maximum surface bearing, bending and punching resistance, without the slab interlock risk common with other methods.
  • Acceptable method in accordance with ACI 302.1R Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction and ACI 360 Design of Slabs-on-Ground.

Be sure to contact SureBuilt for more information about the Taper Dowel and other new doweling products.

Radius Forming Made Easy!

Concrete tanks and curved walls quickly take shape with the new SureCurve™ RC forming system!

Each SureCurve panel has a series of turnbuckles that flex the form to a desired radius. Panels can then be joined and stacked to create large gangs.

The large SureCurve gangs are assembled with a lever-action connecting clamp. This reduces assembly time and simplifies any reconfiguration.

The connecting clamp, in combination with three interior and exterior panel sizes, can be used to form a radius as small as 10’.

SureBuilT Concrete Forms and Accessories

It’s time to give SureBuilt a closer look…

concrete forming productsAre you tired of supporting vendors who give your biggest competitors better pricing, better access, better benefits and who knows what else? Do you sometimes feel like the family-owned, community-centered, local business getting crushed by the proverbial Walmart?!

SureBuilt concrete forming products are shipped to independent dealers and distributors, for resale and delivery to contractors, throughout North America. There has always been a preference to work with local people, who know local markets, not corporate entities.

Post Shores remove the guesswork!

Don’t take chances with 4×4 lumber shores of unknown capacity. And don’t waste time placing more 4×4 lumber shores than needed “just to be safe.” Post Shores are designed and tested for shoring applications. Project layouts and spacings become more efficient based on engineering data, rather than field guesswork.

Concrete Hoppers In Stock!

Concrete Hoppers are precision-molded to create a sturdy and easy-to-clean funnel shape. The standard design is lightweight and easy-to-handle. The heavy-duty design is reinforced with a steel frame. Concrete Hoppers can be combined with tremie pipes, collars, elephant trunk and clamps to help with almost any concrete pour.

butt plate walers

Double channel steel walers turn everyday panels into productive gangform systems

butt plate walers

Butt Plate Walers, bolted together end-to-end, are used to support this large wood beam gang.

Contractors own lots of different forming equipment, but they don’t always own enough walers… the one thing that can really maximize forming productivity!

Walers are used to align panels, carry taper tie loads and maximize the surface area of each gang. Depending on the type of panel and contractor preference, there are several waler alternatives.

DSA Double Headed Shear Reinforcement Stud Rails

Breaking News!

We’ve just landed the largest Stud Rail project in SureBuilt history. For more information on the NYC Stud Rails and other products, please contact our area representative, Bob Edwards, Construction Innovations, by email: redw472039@aol.com or cell: 518-365-1202. The $1.5 billion expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan is underway and the columns will be reinforced with SureBuilt Stud Rails.

Stay on Schedule with SureBuilt Stud Rails! Stud Rail, a double-headed stud anchor (DSA) reinforcement system, is typically used for concrete deck-to-column connections.

This product is designed to create a larger shear area around each column of a building , transfer the load into the concrete deck, and resist punching shear forces. Using the Stud Rail system can often eliminate the need for column capitals or drop heads. This provides significant savings, since these column details are difficult to form and place.

Demo Panel a Big Success!

We’re back home after the TCA 2018 International Tilt-Up Convention and Expo. And we’re still excited about the demonstration panel featuring SureBuilt products.

The panel contained all the SureBuilt items you would find on a successful tilt-up project, including ProLift Inserts, Brace Inserts, Pipe Braces, HGA Brackets, Lifting Clutches, Slant Anchors, and more!

It even had something you didn’t see… the new SureBuilt Engineering Services, now supporting tilt-up projects throughout North America.

Sneak Peek – Tilt-Up Animation

Tilting Things in Your Favor!

We’re in Dallas right now for the 2018 International Tilt-Up Convention and Expo. Be sure to stop by the SureBuilt exhibit, booth #203, to see the new Tilt-Up Animation video we’ve created to demoinstrate our product line.

Even if you can’t attend the show, you can still watch the video with this link.

And don’t forget to ask about SureBuilt Engineering Services. We’re helping tilt-up contractors throughout North America with all the details, including:

– Lifting and bracing
– Shop drawings
– Architectural drawings
– Rebar detailing
– 3D renderings

Of course, you can always contact your SureBuilt representative for the latest on tilt-up products, pricing and availability.
