Corner bracket form
Reward recently introduced a full height, double-H bridging corner bracket form. This design improves ICF corner performance by providing more stability to corner walls during construction. The new design allows a structure's corner walls to withstand more pressure placed on them during concrete pours. Reward Wall Systems. 800-468-6344. www.rewardwalls.com.
Single-sided forming system
This aluminum handset forming system, when combined with the new Dominator form, will allow contractors to set and pour adjoining walls with 5/8-in. form clearances. Using the tapered tie system, they can vary the thickness of the wall. The system features exceptionally tight seams that virtually eliminate concrete leakage.
