Ledger Forming

Western Forms Ledger forms are fully compatible with all Western Forms standard ceiling and beam form components.  Hole spacing is similar to standard wall form hole patterns.  Optional PinLock(TM) base plates allow recommended PinLock(TM) attached hardware to be added to form panels.  Form clips (loose hardware) can also be used for ceiling form / ceiling ledger connections.

 The photo shows a drop head beam form connection to the ceiling ledger form continuous pin slot grooves.  A specially adapted vice grip clamp makes a secure connection.  The drop head beam form also incorporates the same pin slot grooves for connection to the ceiling form.

Ledger Forming Systems

Ledger Forming components are available in multiple standard dimensions and can be customized to accommodate special dimension requirements.

The Ledger Systems are designed and manufactured to connect the wall forms, ceiling / slab forms and beam forms together to provide a Monolithic structure.

Western Forms Ledger Systems contain patented features that provide tight "fit up" of walls, ceilings and beams which require minimal finishing time of th ejust stripped shell.

Dimensions of Ledger Systems can be changed when new structure dimensions are created, so as to allow existing standard wall forms and ceiling forms inventory to accommodate new projects.
