Safety and PPE products for Chicagoland concrete construction crews

It’s Safety… It’s Not Negotiable!

Minimize Hazards… Get More Done!

CCS Safety Products

When you think about it, job site hazards are just obstacles to more productive concrete forming. The crew is often forced to work more slowly to avoid any problems.

By identifying hazardous areas with signs, barricades, cones and/or caution tape you clearly mark off safe work zones. Your crew, and any subcontractors, inspectors, suppliers or visitors, know exactly where they belong. Everyone can be focused on the work, not their personal safety.

And speaking of personal safety, every member of the crew should have personal protection equipment (PPE). Hard hats, vests, safety glasses, ear plugs, boots, lanyards and D-hooks are just a few of the things needed to satisfy DOT, OSHA, union and insurance requirements.

We can help keep your crew and job site safe so you can get more done. Contact your CCS representative or visit one of our 6 locations right now!

Concrete Forms available at Chicago Contractor's Supply

Join the Panel Discussion!

Be a Handset Panel ExpertConcrete Forms available at Chicago Contractor's Supply  

A handset panel is the most economical, the most versatile, and the most efficient way of forming large or small projects! Here are just a few of the more noteworthy features:

1000 psf Rating

With nearly 20% more weld contact, SurePly side rails, end rails and crossmembers hold up better and need far less repair, than other major brands.

Full Crossmember

Handset Concrete FormingA larger crossmember provides 45% more plywood contact area compared to the 1-3/8” crossmember of other brands. More support reduces “pillowing” for a better finish.

Dado Slots

Four more dado slots along each side rail provides alternate tie and hardware locations – particularly valuable when stacking or “stepping” forms on footings.

Paint Options

Concrete ConstructionForms are available in 12 standard baked-on colors, which is ideal for company branding and/or identifying rental fleets. Custom colors are available on request.

Powder Coat

The smooth, extra tough baked-on SurePly form finish makes cleaning easier and provides more long-term protection than dip-tank painting, common with other brands.

Birch Plywood

All SurePly panels and fillers include 1/2″ Birch plywood. This hardwood species, 9-ply design and 220/220 overlay provides a sturdier and longer-lasting form face.

More Productivity

Two 2×8 panels are the equivalent contact area of a 4×8 sheet of plywood, yet they can be moved, placed, tied, poured and stripped 75% faster than job-built forms.

Form Renovation

Renovation options include plywood removal, shot-blasting and painting. These “like-new” frames are then refaced to your specification before going back into service.

The size and diamond-shape of the Taper Dowel provides joint stability, load transfer and smooth slab-to-slab transition, without restraining floor movement.

Diamond-Shaped dowel for slabs

The new Taper Dowel provides concrete joint stability, load transfer and smooth slab-to-slab transition, without restraining floor movement. The plastic sleeve is nailed to lumber edge forms before concrete placement and the steel plate slides into the sleeve after forms are removed in preparation for the adjoining slab. The Taper Dowel simplifies dowel installation, eliminates slab edge drilling and reduces labor costs for all types of ground level concrete slabs, including floors, flatwork and pavement.

The size and diamond-shape of the Taper Dowel provides joint stability, load transfer and smooth slab-to-slab transition, without restraining floor movement.

A set includes the void sleeve, nails and dowel plate. The sleeve is nailed to a lumber edge form before concrete placement. After the form is removed, a dowel plate is inserted into each sleeve in preparation for the adjoining slab.

The Taper Dowel is recommended for joints up to 0.20” wide and is suitable for all types of grade-level concrete floors, slabs or pavements. A properly installed Taper Dowel minimizes joint spalling, eliminates tripping hazards and improves joint filler appearance.

The Taper Dowel conforms to the ACI 302.1R Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction and ACI 360 Design of Slabs-on-Ground.
