PREMIUM HAT on Concrete Forms
Western Forms Hat provides superior bracing with the widest hat in the industry. The span between the hats are 5 1/2” and competitors’ panels are 6” to 10”. Concrete forms provide continuous contact with the face sheet for extra rigidity combating deflection and pillowing, providing flatter concrete walls.
Only Western Aluminum Concrete Forms offers pickup handles for a simple lift of these extremely efficient concrete forms.
All Elite, Gasket, & Flagship concrete forms feature a full backbone to provide additional stability that also reduces pillowing and reverse bow throughout the life of the form, resulting in flatter walls every pour.
Reduces maintenance and concrete buildup. Contractors eliminate the extra time needed to break-in new forms with this exclusive pre-seasoning process.
PRECISION WELDING PROCESS
16 Line Welds are more resistant to failure with up to twice the welds of competitors’ forms. All 900 mm horizontal hats are welded in 16 places - giving you more welds where the bulk of the stress occurs.
