One Sided Wall Forms
Tied and Ganged One-sided Forms Atlas provides wall form equipment as described in the Ganged Wall Form Section along with Weld brackets which are mounted to the soldier beams supporting shoring to the basement excavation typically at 8 ft. centers. Concrete placement rates at 5’/hr. can generally be accommodated, while still maintaining 5 ft. vertical spacing of ties.
Standard inventory, snub-nosed coil taper ties are included as part of the system package, allowing both rapid installation and stripping of forms.
Tied and Handset One-sided Forms
Atlas has a unique Handset (craneless) approach to the forming of one-sided (blind) walls. The same components as above are utilized in individually placed aluminum beams. This design allows quick setting and stripping practices. Along with the high load capacity of aluminum, absent of the use of a crane. This system is ideal for single lifts and projects with limited equipment and space.
Tie-Less Ganged One-sided Forms
Atlas is able to offer a basic gang wall system, this time tieless through the concrete wall and connected to, and laterally supported by, the Atlas A-100 Frame
STAY-FORM is a ribbed expanded metal leave-in-place concrete form that is used for forming bulkheads, pile caps, grade beams, blindside walls, bridge applications and wherever form removal is difficult.
Construction joints are easily made; each side of STAY-FORM provides a substantial key for bondingabutting pour faces.
STAY-FORM may also be used for curved forming applications, such as water treatment tanks. STAY-FORM is fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized coiled sheet steel of 26 ga. thickness for standard grade
material at 27” x 97” finished sheet size.
• Reduces labor costs in difficult forming applications.
• Joint scabbling is eliminated.
• Allows for continuous placement of rebar.
• May be cut to size to fit specific project requirements.
• Allows for visual inspection of concrete pour.
• Pre-galvanized for jobsite storage.
Blind side walls are easily formed using
STAY-FORM with a special HookTie.
STAY-FORM is used on blind side of wall, conventional formwork on face side.
