Innovative Tilt-Up Products

We plan on being in Atlanta for the TCA 2019 International Tilt-Up Convention and Expo in September. And we’re featuring more innovative tilt-up products to make your projects go even faster.

Stop by the SureBuilt exhibit, Booth #203, to learn how we’re tilting things in your favor. Here are just a few of the products you’ll see:

SureLift (SL) InsertAn effective panel lifting insert that develops high pull-out strength. A disposable plastic void former identifies the cap location and keeps concrete out of the recess. Slide-on plastic feet provide height adjustment and eliminate surface corrosion.

Slant AnchorA unique assembly that connects tilt-up panels to the foundation. The assembly includes a load-rated Slant Anchor, foam Void Former, high-strength Ductile Bar and prepackaged Flowable Grout… no welding or bolting required!.

Edge ConnectorA rebar-winged embed positioned at the panel edge (for later welding) and tied into the panel reinforcing steel… the “flat” provides for an accessible and longer welding surface between adjoining panels!

Edge Form BracketThe one-piece plastic design is molded with a triangular strut to support the panel edge during concrete placement… so stop cutting lumber for bracing  and start forming faster with this reusable bracket!

HGA BracketA quick connection point between helical ground anchors (HGA) and tilt-up braces. The Pipe Brace shoes bolt directly to the bracket and the sleeve attaches to the ground anchor… no need to disassemble Pipe Braces!

And be sure to ask about SureBuilt Engineering Services… we’re ready to help with plans,  specifications and panel details on tilt-up projects throughout North America.

Reduce Labor and Material Costs with Metal Rib!

Don’t Mesh Around… Get Metal Rib!Metal Rib - Stay in place Form

It’s time to give your customers a sample of Metal Rib and see how creative they can be. Here are just a few ideas to get them thinking:

– Easy to cut, lap, splice, bend and pierce; adapts to all kinds of forming, like footings, bulkheads, grade beams and pier caps.

– Saves time because the sheet remains in place, only the bracing is removed, eliminating form stripping.

Concrete Construction - Metal Rib Stay Form

– Simplifies forming joints so rebar operations can continue, or be revised, with minimal obstructions.

– Can be tied to existing rebar in structures, like grade beams and pier caps, to eliminate temporary supports.

– Provides a quick-to-install joint option in the event of ready-mix interruption or other unanticipated problems.

Make sure you always have Metal Rib leave-in-place mesh on hand. Add a skid to your next shipment.

New SureBuilt dowel products are used for load-transfer in concrete floors

From the Ground Floor Up!

New SureBuilt dowel products

SureBuilt is penetrating a new sector of the concrete construction industry with the introduction of engineered joint stability systems for concrete floors. New dowel products from SureBuilt include the diamond-shaped Taper Dowel, Dowel Basket, and Steel Edge Nosing. High-traffic concrete floors and pavements require precise load transfer, smooth transition and joint protection. These requirements can be satisfied with these new joint stability systems.

The Taper Dowel is a diamond-shaped, engineered load transfer system for horizontal movement in concrete floor joints. The Dowel Basket is a wire and plate dowel assembly for efficient load transfer in concrete floor and pavement contraction joints. The Steel Edge Nosing is a free movement joint with a heavy duty steel edge to protect contraction joints in high traffic floors.

In industrial and commercial buildings, a critical design component is the long-term serviceability of a concrete floor slab. The rapid change in the logistics industry from larger, cushioned wheels to smaller, harder wheels on lift-trucks has greatly increased the problem of joint spalling in warehouse, retail, and manufacturing facilities. Spalled joints or cracks can significantly disrupt productivity, require expensive repair, and make facilities less desirable to potential new owners or tenants. A design that delivers proper joint stability and support is key to minimizing spalling and cracking in a concrete floor that is subject to wheeled traffic. Industry guidelines all recommend the use of load-transfer devices, such as dowels, in concrete floors with lift-truck traffic.

 

The Butt Plate Waler is one of the most popular waler designs used in heavy forming

Big Gangs… Big Walers!

Just Build the Size You Need!

The end plates on each Butt Plate Waler have holes for full-moment, end-to-end connection. It’s easy to build the Waler you need.

Butt Plate Walers are available in 2′, 4′, 6′, 8′, 10′ and 12′ lengths. The possible Waler size combinations are enough for almost any gang.

The SPAN-X Beam consists of an aluminum box shape with a telescoping I-beam that provides a wide range of adjustment

Not Spandex… SPAN-X!

Telescoping Aluminum SPAN-X Beams!

The SPAN-X Beam consists of an aluminum box shape with a telescoping I-beam that provides a sliding range of adjustment. A single Nut sets the length and camber. The End Tabs support the beam during construction.

This self-spanning support can be positioned along the top of a concrete wall, shelf angle or stringer. The clear span provides a more accessible work space underneath, reducing conflict between trades. SPAN-X Beams have been used for box culverts, shaft core roofs, water channels and other similar concrete deck support.

SPAN-X Beams are available in four standard sizes, with an overall adjustment range from 3′-4″ to 19′-0″ in length.
