Question & Answer
What Accessories are available for the EFCO Round Column System?
The EFCO Round Column forming system uses standard EFCO heavy-duty accessories. EFCO telescoping Pipe Braces are easily adjustable to keep column forms plumb. Scaffold Brackets can be attached easily to the top of the steel form set-up for contractor’s wood planks and handrails. EFCO’s Jet Bolts and high-strength Quick Bolts are used to assemble round column panels easily. Form stripping is facilitated in a full 360° set-ups with split washers placed between the vertical flanges for the stripping operation. When setting up to pour, the split washers are removed from between the flanges and placed under the nuts on the backside of the flange. Lifting Eyes are located on each section of the form to eliminate the need for special rigging. The total EFCO Round Column form system is very labor efficient.
How does the Round Column Support High Pour Pressure (Lateral Concrete Pressure)?
With today’s concrete additives for flowable or self-consolidating concrete, contractors need forms that withstand high pour pressure. EFCO Round Column forms are rated for 3,000 lb/ft² for column forms 12″ through 60″ diameter.
