A handset panel is the most economical, the most versatile, and the most efficient way of forming large or small concrete projects. Here are just a few of the more noteworthy features you should be sharing with your customers:
1000 PSF Rating
With nearly 20% more weld contact, SurePly side rails, end rails and crossmembers hold up better and need far less repair, than other brands.
Larger crossmembers provides 45% more plywood contact area compared to the 1-3/8” crossmember of other brands. More support reduces “pillowing” for a better finish.
Forms are available in 12 standard baked-on colors, which is ideal for company branding and/or identifying rental fleets. Custom colors on request.
Baked-On Powder Coat
The smooth, extra tough baked-on SurePly form finish provides easier cleaning and more long-term protection than dip-tank painting, common with other brands.
Long-Lasting Birch Plywood
All SurePly panels and fillers include 1/2″ birch plywood. This hardwood species, 9-ply design and 220/220 overlay provides a sturdier and longer-lasting form face.
Two 2×8 panels are the equivalent contact area of a 4×8 sheet of plywood, yet they can be moved, placed, tied, poured and stripped 75% faster than job-built forms.
Form Renovation Service
Renovation options include plywood removal, shot-blasting and painting. These “like-new” frames are then refaced to customer specification.

With Snap Tie Forming!
Job-built forming with plywood, 2×4 lumber, Snap Ties and Jahn-style brackets, is popular on many construction sites around the country. Though only a few components are required, sufficient time and labor are necessary to plan, mark, cut and drill the plywood.
Jahn-style Waler Brackets are the preferred choice of many concrete contractors. This bracket centers and captures the tie, while supporting a 2×4 waler across the top. An “ear” plate swivels to secure the assembly for concrete placement.
When long-end ties are used, the Jahn-style Strongback Bracket is needed. This bracket captures the tie, horizontal 2×4 waler and vertical 2×4 strongbacks. An “ear” plate swivels to secure the assembly for concrete placement.
If you’re not following SureBuilt on LinkedIn, then you’re missing some great stories!
Just read what Chad Czerwinski, Project Superintendent at Concrete Structures of the Midwest, had to say:
“Formwork coming down means we are all but finished up here in Evanston. I appreciate all the help from SureBuilt Concrete Forms & Accessories. They never disappoint with their self-risers.”
High-rise cores quickly take shape with the Self-Riser, a “crane-free and pain-free” approach to core forming.
There’s really nothing left to add… just contact us when you have a self-riser forming project to discuss.
We’re making handset panels at SureBuilt every day, but samples of the red, white and blue panels seemed especially appropriate for Labor Day.
The 320,000 square feet of US-based production is proof of the contributions that our employees have made to the growth, capability, strength, productivity, and well-being of the country.
Be sure to honor American workers, past and present, this Labor Day!
No Gift Wrapping, Just Banding!
If red and green aren’t your first choice, then choose one of the other ten color options.
And no matter the color, you always benefit from the labor-saving features built into every SureBuilt forming product.

Don’t Mesh Around… Get Metal Rib!
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.
– 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.
Just About Any Color!
Contractors often have their trucks and other vehicles marked with a logo and painted in the company color.
So why wouldn’t they want their forming and shoring equipment to match?!
The powder-coated equipment becomes part of the contractor’s “fleet” and visible on every project in town.
