When Your Back is to the Wall…Go with a Weld-On Pivot Bracket!

The WeldOn Pivot Bracket makes any one-sided wall forming job easier.

The bracket can be welded to steel piles, beams or embeds at tie elevations. The pivot adjustment, angled in either direction, aligns the coil rod with the forming system. When properly installed by a certified welder, the bracket exceeds the capacity of the pivot bar and coil rod.

The WeldOn Pivot Bracket consists of a slotted bent plate and threaded pivot bar. The coil rod matching the pivot bar and forming system is sold separately.

To insure proper tie capacity, the coil rod must thread through the pivot bar a minimum of one diameter of the rod. An easy way to accomplish this is to position the coil rod tie  perpendicular to the piling, then thread it through the bracket and pivot bar until it contacts the piling.

Contact your SureBuilt representative to discuss the details of the WeldOn Pivot Bracket for one-sided wall forming situations.

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’.
