Bridge Dia-Fram™ Forms

Western's Dia-Fram™ bridge beam in-fill forms create cast-in-place concrete beam stabilizers between precast beams in bridge projects. The forming system is adjustable in both width and height .  This makes it easy to accomodate placement and shape deviations in the precast concrete beams. Dia-Fram™  forms are made from lightweight aluminum.  All necessary hardware is attached, which is ideal for working in tight quarters above traffic or water . Contractors report substantially better carpenter productivity compared with the usual practice of fabricating wood forms on-site.
