Make your last edge board and buy a Western
Western offers an innovative version of its slab forming system for creating post-tensioned slabs efficiently. Workers place the aluminum panels using the same layout principles as wood systems. Each panel contains a series of closely-spaced holes, eliminating the need for custom drilling and enhancing versatility. Attaching post-tension brackets is easy with Western's exclusive patent-pending technology. Steel wire rods lock in each nail to prevent cable movement and ensure a firm hold to the form. This is faster to set up than "toenailing" wood and grips the cable more securely.
Western's aluminum slab edge forms can be braced to prevent movement during concrete placement. They are strong and large enough for secure attachment of both the dead and stressing end anchorages.
Wood forms need to be replaced about every 5 uses because of delaminating and peeling. They slow the workers, who have to compensate for warped wood and shifting. Wooden edge forms require more kickers and splices to keep them straight.
Westerns slab edge forms are better than other forms because they:
- Stay straighter and last much, much longer
- Stay in place more easily for placing tendons
- Are easily braced to prevent movement during concrete placement
- Produce a superior finish on the exposed edge
