The tie breaks back ¼ inch into the concrete wall surface, leaving NO projecting ends to be cut, twisted or hammered off. The Westcon Strip-Ease ties save 2/3 of the labour cost in stripping versus other systems. Westcon Strip-Ease form ties are available in standard 4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch, 14 inch and 16 inch sizes, plus metric lengths of 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, 300mm, 350mm and 400mm and up to 900mm in 50mm increments. Custom form ties are available in any length from 4 inches to 15 feet long, contact us for details and pricing.
By reducing the seepage around the ties, less concrete material would harden in the slots during the concrete curing period. This innovative solution has helped speed up the turn-around time for the many form rental companies using the Westcon Forming System.
We have engineer stamped approvals for these economical insulated wall systems, contact us if you require more information for your local building codes. The Styrofoam is held in place using 4 inch or 5 inch common nails, which makes this very simple and fast to assemble the forms. And of course the same quick stripping feature comes standard with this tie.
These bars lock the ties in place against the formply, and are infinitely re-useable. Our special high carbon steel withstands the repeated blows to snap the ties off, returning to its original shape time after time. Sold in 8 foot lengths, it can be cut shorter by the contractor for use in round forms, or special situations.
