SurePly™ Handset Forming System
The most economical, most versatile, and most efficient way to form concrete!
Two 2×8 panels are equal to the contact area of a 4×8 sheet of plywood, yet the SurePly forming system can be moved, placed, tied, poured and stripped 75% faster than job-built plywood forms.
Small or large projects, simple or cut-up layouts, and handset or gangform applications, will benefit from these SurePly labor-saving features:
- High-carbon 55,000 PSI structural steel frame
- Rugged frame with 45% more weld than others
- Full 2”x2” crossmember support angle every foot
- Allowable 1,000 psf load-rated system
- Added dado slots make step footings easy
- Integral handle for carrying and setting
- Baked-on powder paint in 12 optional colors
- Long-lasting 1/2” Birch or optional HDO plywood
- Panels in heights from 3’ to 10’, width 24”
- Fillers in heights from 3’ to 10’, widths 1” to 22”
- Inside corners in heights from 3’ to 10’, 6”x6” size
- Simple hardware for faster assembly
With nearly 45% more weld contact than others, SurePly side rails, end rails and crossmembers hold up better, with far less repair, than other brands.
Full 2” crossmembers provide 45% more plywood contact area compared to the 1-3/8” crossmember of other brands. More support reduces “pillowing” for a better finish.
Load-rated 1,000 psf System
The form, tie and hardware capacities are designed to provide an optimal strength-to-weight ratio and 1,000 psf forming system.
More Dado Slots
Four more dado slots along each side rail provides alternate tie and hardware locations – particularly valuable when stacking or “stepping” forms.
Carrying, holding and setting panels is easier and faster with the integral handle. Moving more panels means more forming productivity.
The smooth, extra tough, baked-on SurePly form finish is more durable than the ordinary dip-tank painting common with other brands.
Forms are available in a choice of 12 standard colors, which is ideal for company branding and/or identifying rental fleets. Custom colors on request.
Long-lasting Birch Plywood
All standard SurePly panels and fillers include 1/2” Birch plywood. This hardwood species and 9-ply design with 220/220 overlay provides a long-lasting form face.
1/2” HDO plywood is readily available throughout North America and often a customer preference. This optional face can be installed in panels and fillers on request.
Panel and Filler Sizes
Form layouts are quickly planned and assembled using the standard panel and filler sizes. Setting, stepping and stacking forms is more productive.
Wedge Bolts capture the form tie and adjoining siderails for a fast and simple connection. One-Piece Waler Clamps at each joint (with 2×4 lumber) provide form alignment.
Renovation includes plywood removal, shot-blasting and painting. These “like-new” frames are then refaced to customer specifications.
