Steel-Ply© Concrete Forming System

Productive, pre-engineered, reusable, factory-built concrete forming system -- available for purchase or lease.

Steel-Ply© Concrete Forming System

Steel-Ply is designed for maximum versatility. It can be used to form virtually any kind of concrete pedestal, culvert, haunch or stoop, as well as straight, curved, battered or "Y" walls. Practically any dimension can be formed by combining panel or filler sizes and using them vertically or horizontally.

The Steel-Ply system combines heavy-duty steel rails and crossmembers with Symons special layup " HDO plywood for a 1000 psf rating at a 2:1 safety factor. This load rating increases productivity and reduces tie requirements compared to typical job-built formwork.

The Steel-Ply system consists of more than 80 standard panel and filler sizes. Wedge bolts connect panels, fillers and ties in one simple operation, making formwork erection and removal quick and easy.

In addition to Steel-Ply, Kuhlman can provide the full-range of Symons' other concrete forming systems, including Max-A-Form for pier caps/self-spanning applications and Versiform gangforming for large concrete walls.
