Question:   How do I fill the forms?
Answer:       Depending on the height of the ground you will need to hire a conveyor or pumper truck to fill the forms.

Question:   What about cold weather construction with this form?
Answer:       The form and concrete mix should not freeze so warm your wall area to prevent freezing and use a cold weather concrete mix with plasticiser additive. Warm wall area to minimum 40 degrees or preferably 50-60 degrees.

Question:   What procedure should we use to pour the concrete in the forms?
Answer:       You should brace the walls appropriately first, then starting from the end, pour the concrete 2-3’ high layers, reversing direction each time you reach the end of the wall, constantly pounding with a rubber hammer to settle the concrete in the form. Weave back and forth until the wall form is full of concrete.

Question:   Can I vibrate the concrete in these forms?
Answer:       Yes you can.

Question:   How do I brace this form?
Answer:       Secure 2x4 to the footing on both sides of the Form to hold the bottom of the panel in place. Then use 2x4’s connected across the top of the FORM with a metal strap to hold the top of the wall steady. Use vertical 2x4’s, every 6’ along the wall with a horizontal 2x4 attached every 4-6’ from bottom to top of wall as illustrated in the directions. DO NOT SCREW ANY OF THE 2x4’s TO THE FORM!

Question:   Can you add rebar to this form?

Use short corner sections at the corners and overlap the corresponding rebar from either direction. The rebar can lay in the center of the form at the bottom of every fourth circle cut out. Overlap the rebar according to ACI 318.05 and ACI 318.11. Consult your local engineer for the proper rebar specifications and follow recommendations.

Answer:       No you should not do that.

Question:   What tools do I need to put this together?
Answer:      Here is a list of tools: rubber hammer, tape measure, adjustable clamps, and a 4’ to 6’ level. Also need a regular hammer, nails and stakes to secure the bracing. Turn buckles are nice to have to level the wall easily to the eve line string

Answer:      The concrete FORM panels come on a pallet with ten (10) panels per. The panels are shrink wrapped and banded to the pallet. The FORM panels also come with a peel off film that is applied to each side of the panels. Peel this off after all the construction work is completed.
