The First Bracing Innovation in Fifty Years!

The new Modular Brace requires 50% fewer braces for a typical tilt-up application. Of course, fewer braces reduce brace inventory, job site handling, panel attachment and dismantling time.

These savings are compounded when you consider all the related steps in the process. There are 50% fewer brace inserts, 50% fewer brace attachments, 50% fewer bolts, 50% fewer man-lifts, and 50% fewer shipments.

The Modular Brace savings even extend beyond the latest job once you realize the same components can be used to build different brace sizes. There’s no need to stock every brace size when you can reconfigure the components with a handful of nuts and bolts.

Bolt Together the Brace You Need!

There’s no need to stock every possible brace size when you can simply reconfigure components using a handful of nuts and bolts.

The secret to the Modular Brace is a plate-to-plate connection with four torqued bolts (min 150 ft-lbs). This turns a selection of components into a single fixed unit.

Conventional pipe braces “telescope” to reach different lengths, but that sliding movement creates “slop” inside the sleeve and reduces capacity. That’s why you’ve had to tie up your money in a range of different sizes.

Not anymore! The plate-to-plate bolting of these patent pending modular components creates a “girder effect” that provides different sizes, while maintaining the structural integrity and load capacity. That means more brace sizes, from fewer components… and less inventory!

Now you can bolt together the brace you need, then take it apart and build something else. Start with the 40′ length, add End Connectors, and you have a 41′ Brace. Need a different size? Take off an End Connector, bolt on a 10′ length, add back the End Connector, and you now have a 51′ Brace. Need an even longer size? Add another 10′ length and have a 61′ Brace.

We’re glad to hear our 52′ Modular Braces performed when it counted most, as an earthquake hit Utah while Frontline Concrete‘s team was on site at their latest tilt-up project.

Appreciate the mention and honest feedback!

Or Pipe Reality!

Are you tired of listening to other suppliers “explain” why it takes so long to get pipe braces delivered? Do you find it hard to believe that other suppliers can be ten or more weeks out on deliveries?

Stop waiting! We build more sizes, ship more often, and supply more jobs, than just about anyone else.

That should be your new reality! Call for the Pipe Braces you need.

Adjustable Pipe Braces have a telescoping pipe for rough dimension and a 6” threaded connecting shoe for final adjustment and anchoring. There are three sizes of Adjustable Pipe Brace, ranging from 7’-6” to 40’-0”.

Fixed Pipe Braces are a standard length with an 18” threaded connecting shoe for final adjustment and anchoring. There are four sizes of Fixed Pipe Brace, including extensions, ranging from 16’-6” to 32’-9”.

Heavy-Duty Fixed Pipe Braces are a larger diameter pipe that provides greater capacity. There are three sizes of HD Fixed Pipe Brace, ranging from 31’-0” to 52’-6”, plus an optional 10′ extension for a 62′ length.

SureBuilt Tilt-Up Pipe Braces

We’re manufacturing and shipping more Pipe Braces than ever… make sure you reserve a slot in our production schedule so your customers never have to wait!

These all-steel Pipe Braces, available in lengths from 7’-6” to 62’-6”, are suitable for almost any formwork, precast or tilt-up bracing application.

Helical Ground Anchor (HGA) Bracket

Load-rated device for quickly connecting tilt-up brace shoes to helical ground anchors.

The HGA Bracket provides a simple and quick connection point between helical ground anchors and tilt-up braces. The new patent-pending design eliminates the need to remove, then reattach, pipe brace shoes. The pipe brace shoe bolts directly to the bracket plate and ground anchor bolts to the bracket sleeve.
