Concrete tanks and curved walls quickly take shape with the SureCurve™ RC forming system from SureBuilt Concrete Forms & Accessories

Concrete tanks quickly take shape

Williams Brothers Construction successfully formed two 180-foot diameter, 18’ tall clarifier tanks for the city of Joliet, IL with the new SureCurve RC system from SureBuilt. CCS Account Manager, Mike Hammerstein, said “Each SureCurve panel has a series of turnbuckles that “flex” the form to the desired radius. Panels can then be joined and stacked to create large gangs for concrete tanks and curved walls.”

Like-new Panel for $50?!

Make the most of the forms you already own with a thorough renovation, including new 1/2″ plywood.

You can transform your worn-out panels and fillers forms into like-new condition for about half the cost of a factory shipment.

It’s a great way to get your forms back in shape. We’ll clean, repair, repaint and reface your panels and fillers. Your crews will be forming concrete again with “new” forms, in no time!

Here’s what you can expect. Renovation includes all the following operations:

– Remove plywood from frames
– Inspect and sort frames
– Straighten frames
– Shotblast frames
– Paint frames (red powder-coat)
– Install new birch plywood (or HDO)

And renovation can be performed on most handset systems, including the Ellis Pro-Form, EMI Elite, Symons Steel-Ply and SureBuilt SurePly brands.

Take a look at the pricing, then contact your CCS representative and get your old forms back in shape. What are you waiting for?!
