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.

The Slant Anchor assembly connects tilt-up or precast panels to the foundation. The assembly includes a load-rated Slant Anchor, foam Void Former, high-strength Ductile Bar and pre-packaged Grout. […]

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!

Take a Look at All the Options!

Your customers will be floored by the new dowel and joint systems for concrete slabs and pavements. Stop searching for suppliers and call SureBuilt right now!

Taper Dowels

The diamond-shape Taper Dowel provides concrete joint stability, reliable load transfer and smooth slab-to-slab transition, without restraining floor movement. The plastic sleeve is nailed to lumber edge forms before concrete placement and the steel plate slides into the sleeve after the forms are removed.

Dowel Baskets

The Dowel Basket is a cost-effective assembly for large-scale floors and pavements. Each twelve-foot assembly is built to match the dowel spacing shown in the project specifications. The plastic sleeve allows movement and the flat plate provides maximum bearing and smooth slab-to-slab transition.

Steel Edge Nosing

High-traffic industrial floors and pavements require precise load transfer, joint stability and joint protection. These requirements are met with an assembly that includes the steel edge, studs, dowel plates and full-depth channel. The leave-in-place design eliminates conventional slab edge forming costs.

Dowel Sleeves – Construction Joint (CJ)

Positioning dowels with lumber edge forms is easy with the plastic Dowel Sleeve and Nailing Plate. The plate is simply nailed to the form and the sleeve is pushed onto the plate. When the lumber edge forms are removed, a smooth steel dowel is placed into the exposed sleeve for the adjoining concrete slab.

Dowel Sleeves – Expansion Joint (EJ)

Positioning dowels with leave-in-place expansion board, like cedar or polypropylene, is easy with this Dowel Sleeve. Expansion boards are pre-drilled for proper spacing and the sleeves are snapped into place. The integrated collar tabs keep each sleeve in position and perpendicular to the board face.



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.

We’re looking forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones… be sure to stop by the SureBuilt exhibit in booth 386!

We’re displaying some products you may be familiar with and featuring some new ones that you certainly need to become acquainted with…

If you can’t make it to the show this year, then contact your SureBuilt representative for information about the latest products, pricing and availability…

Slant AnchorSlant Anchor

The new Slant Anchor reduces installation costs by 37% compared to a typical embed connection. It eliminates the time-consuming embed match-up, field welding and certification steps.

You save money with every Slant Anchor… there are fewer components to buy, the anchors are easier to position and install, and no welding inspection is needed.

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.

A structural precast insert that pivots open to provide a connecting point

This unique structural insert, when postioned and reinforced in precast elements, acts as a corbel and provides the connection points for subsequent panel cladding.

The SureClad Lock is retracted and covered during concrete placement. Once positioned and reinforced, there are no other forming requirements.
